The second mega clash of PSL4 (Pakistan leg) will be between Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings at National Stadium Karachi. It is the Kings’ home ground, therefore, they will be expecting huge crowd support and the pressure to win the match would be even more. Quetta Gladiators is at the top of the points table and is one of the strongest team of PSL. On the contrary, Karachi Kings have had a few hiccups in the tournament and are struggling to enter the qualifiers.

Team News

The Gladiators squad is quite strong this time courtesy the arrival of Shane Watson in Pakistan. The whole team is in great form whether it’s the batsmen or the bowlers. Youngster Muhammad Husnain is continuing to show an incredible bowling speed and we are waiting to see whether he’ll pass the 150kph speed point in the next match or not?

However, for Karachi it’s a huge match, they cannot afford to lose this otherwise entering into the qualifiers can become a tough task. The team hasn’t performed well under the leadership of Imad Wasim and the only players who have stood out are Liam Livingstone, Babar Azam, and Colin Ingram.
