Pakistan Super League (PSL) side Quetta Gladiators announced the passing away of the franchise chairman Jamshed Omar after a brief illness.

“It is with the deepest of grief to announce that our beloved Chairman – Omar Group of Companies, Mr. Jamshed Omar has left us for his heavenly abode after a brief illness on the eve of January 27."

According to the franchise, Omar was 'a civil engineer and recipient of international awards for Pakistan'.

The 2019 champions recently announced their 18-player squad for the sixth edition of the PSL starting from February 20.

Quetta had earlier appointed T20 World Cup winner Umar Gul as their bowling coach. He had replaced former all-rounder Abdul Razzaq due to the board's conflict of interest policy.
