The final phase of the talent hunt ‘Your gateway to Stardom’ is expected to be carried out in third week of September at the Bugti Stadium, Quetta. The owner of Gladiators Nadeem Omar said that the initiative will provide a perfect platform for the deprived talent of Balochistan to showcase their mettle. “We want to give equal opportunity to the players of Balochistan because I believe they can compete with best players of the country if given right facilities and platform,” Nadeem said while speaking to media persons here at a local hotel yesterday. Nadeem added that his dream is to see players from Balochistan breaking into Pakistan team on regular basis. “When we bought Quetta Gladiators and formed the team, not many people believed in us but I believed in the project and in the end we narrowly missed out on the title.
