Quetta Gladiators Appoint Shane Watson as Head Coach for PSL


In a strategic move ahead of the 2024 Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition, Quetta Gladiators, a prominent team in the league, has brought about a notable coaching change by appointing former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson as their new head coach.

This transition holds particular significance as it marks the first coaching change for the franchise since the inception of the PSL.

The team bids farewell to the long-serving coach, former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan, who has held the helm for eight years. In this restructuring, Moin Khan will now step into the role of team director, contributing his wealth of experience and knowledge to the management side of the team.

Quetta Gladiators, known for their consistent success in the PSL, having reached the final three times and secured the title in 2019, continue to position themselves as one of the league’s competitive and respected teams.

The decision to enlist Shane Watson, a seasoned cricketer and a central player for the Gladiators from 2018 to 2020, as the head coach emphasizes the team’s dedication to strategic and impactful leadership.

Shane Watson’s transition from a key player to the head coaching role signifies a continuation of his association with the team, and his past contributions are anticipated to bring valuable insights and strategies to the coaching setup.

With his wealth of experience and profound understanding of the game, Watson’s role is prepared to play a crucial part in shaping the team’s performance and dynamics in the upcoming PSL season.

This coaching announcement aligns with the excitement building up to the HBL Pakistan Super League Player Draft 2024, scheduled for December 13, 2023, at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.

The draft, featuring the selection of 254 international players, adds another layer of anticipation for Quetta Gladiators and their fans as they eagerly await the upcoming season under the guidance of their new head coach.
