Nafay under the mentorship of QG coaches

Nafay turned out to be one of the best young talents that emerged during HBL PSL 9. His batter prowess caught the eye of everyone. The young lad has had a significant impact on the performance of the newly rising Quetta Gladiators.

He gave credit to guidance from people like Sarfaraz, Sir Viv Richards, and Shane Watson.

Here is what he said,

“There is a lot to learn from Sir Vivian Richards, Sarfaraz Ahmed, and Shane Watson, I do my natural batting and play according to the situation, I try to practice every shot for two, three hours.”

Quetta Gladiators has been struggling since 2020, and none of us liked that, did we? The Gladiators was a team that dominated the tournament. However, ever since they won the title in 2019, it has been a backward slope. But that is the thing of the past. Now, the Gladiators are back in action, and they are creating impact for each player. Nafay and Wasim are just some examples.
