It seems Quetta Gladiators’ captain Rilee Rossouw is also using Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access X, formerly Twitter, in Pakistan.

The social networking platform’s access has been largely disrupted since Saturday in Pakistan, which has forced its users to resort to VPN.

On Thursday, a video of Rossouw and Quetta’s Analyst Prasanna Agoram went viral on social media where the duo can be seen in a heated discussion.

However, Rossouw quickly put all the rumours to rest by stating “this is not at all what it looks like” with a flurry of laughing emojis.

After the response from Quetta’s captain, the user, who had originally posted the video, asked Rossouw if he was also using VPN.

Rossouw replies to a user on X.

It must be noted that Quetta Gladiators defeated Islamabad United by three wickets in the eighth match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine on Thursday.

While chasing the target of 145, Gladiators had to toil hard to reach the finish line. On the back of skipper Rossouw's unbeaten 34, they chased down the total in the 19th over while Mohammad Amir chipped in with valuable 11 not out.

With this win, Gladiators registered their third win and are one of the only two teams to have trio of victories with Multan Sultans.

Scores in brief:

Quetta Gladiators beat Islamabad United by three wickets

Islamabad United 138-9, 20 overs (Agha Salman 33, Alex Hales 21; Abrar Ahmed 3-18, Mohammad Wasim Jnr 3-20)

Quetta Gladiators 139-7, 18.2 overs (Jason Roy 37, Rilee Rossouw 34 not out; Shadab Khan 2-24, Naseem Shah 2-34)
