Quetta Gladiators have picked five foreign players for the Pakistan Super League final in Lahore on Sunday.
These foreign players will be part of the Gladiators squad which will face Peshawar Zalmi in the final at Gaddafi Stadium.
- Anamul Haque – Bangladesh
- Sean Ervine – Zimbabwe
- Morne Van Wyk – South Africa

Besides these overseas players, Pakistan’s Aizaz Cheema will also be part of the Gladiators squad, replacing injured Umar Gul.
Gladiators players Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, Tymal Mills and Rilee Rossouw opted out of the PSL final in Lahore following Quetta’s one-run win against Zalmi in the first playoff.
The security around Gaddafi Stadium has been beefed up with thousands of security personnel being deployed to stand guard as cricket returns to the heart of Pakistan.
The stadium with a capacity of 27,000 spectators is going to be brimming with fans. To maintain foolproof security containers and check posts have been set up around the venue while a 25-bed hospital has been established at the stadium and another 7-bed set up at a local hotel in the vicinity. http://www.breakingnewstop.com
