Quetta Gladiators’ Nadeem Omer has bought a team in the league and it will be part of their growing Gladiators brand. It is expected the QG team management will be coaching this team as well with Moin Khan as head coach. If available Sarfaraz Ahmed is also likely to lead the team. However, with Pakistan’s tour to New Zealand tour expected sometime in November and the remaining PSL matches in the same dates, the former Pakistan captain might miss out.

The tournament was originally scheduled for August, however, due to strict guidelines regarding quarantine period for all arrivals by the country, the tournament was delayed. The SLC has asked the government to cut down the quarantine period from 14 to 7 to accommodate incoming players.
