How can Quetta Gladiators still qualify for playoffs?

Gladiators’ chances to qualify for playoffs are slim to none. Quetta has won just one match. If Karachi Kings loses their remaining 4 matches and Multan Sultans loses their remaining 3 matches and Quetta wins their remaining 3 matches, then they can qualify for Play-offs. Thus, Quetta needs nothing short of a miracle to qualify ahead.

All-inclusive, This PSL season is by far the worst season for Quetta. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s luck is not helping the team this time. There is no doubt the team is performing below par in every match. Quetta Gladiators faces injury woes as well. Andre Russel got hit by a bouncer. Now, Faf du Plessis suffers a concussion and some memory loss. In addition to that, their main players like Captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Cameron Delport, Naseem Shah, Zahid Hussain are out of form.
