ISLAMABAD - Quetta Gladiators skipper Sarfraz Ahmad termed the defeat against the Lahore Qaladars as ‘one bad day’ in cricket and hoped his team would excel in Sharjah.

"This is a wake-up call for our team," said Sarfraz Ahmad, who believes Sharjah Cricket Stadium and the atmosphere will once again bring the best out of his team. "The wicket was different and the pitch looked improved, I think the coming games will produce bigger scores."

"Sharjah will be better, the ground is small and people come in large numbers -it is a small ground, but you have to hit sixes to win matches," he added.

"To win matches the top four should score runs in T20. Our bowlers were also winning us matches but they can have one bad day. Pressure is always there, and a low target is often tricky. We chased this time a target of around 200 but couldn't reach it. We will learn from it and play it match by match," said Sarfraz.
