As the Quetta Gladiators gear up for the final showdown with Peshawar Zalmi, Pakistan Super League (PSL) fever is peaking in Balochistan.

Talking to DawnNews outside the provincial assembly a couple of days ahead of the final, MPA William Barkat said: "I am very glad that our team qualified for the final this time as well, and we hope that Quetta's team will clinch victory in the PSL final."

MPA Manzoor Ahmed Kakar said: "First of all, I want to congratulate my entire province for qualifying for the final. It is a matter of pride for us, and we need to encourage them [the Quetta Gladiators]."

"We hope that the Gladiators will be performing well in the final as the theu did in other matches of the tournament," said Nasarullah Zeray.

"We are hopeful that Quetta Gladiators will win," he added.

Provincial Health Minister Rahmat Saleh said: "Everyone keeps an association with a team, and naturally my support is with Quetta Gladiators because our provincial capital Quetta associated with it."

"I want to mention here that the PSL has brought a positive phase in the history of Pakistan."

He also congratulated all teams and the entire management for holding PSL.
