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."
