PSL 2019 Match 26: Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators Pre-Match


Two times champion of HBLPSL, Islamabad United will face off one of the strongest team of the tournament so far, Quetta Gladiators. They have faced off each other once before and Quetta easily won that match by 7 wickets. This time it is going to be intense as Islamabad would need to win this match to secure a spot in the qualifiers.


In the absence of Mohammad Sami, Shadab Khan led the team well. He is a crucial bowler for Islamabad United and has the potential to turn things over. Even the batting department led by Cameron Delport and Luke Ronchi is a very strong one and it is expected that Ronchi could play a big knock today. 

Quetta, on the other hand, is at an all-time high. It is going strong in all three departments whether it is bowling, batting or fielding. Sarfaraz has led the team in a brilliant way. Shane Watson’s stunning innings in the last match against Peshawar Zalmi is still fresh in the minds of all the fans and one is expecting the same kind of fireworks even today.
