Quetta Gladiators are on a roll and have won four out of their five matches till now.

They have had an upper hand over Lahore Qalandars and have won five of the seven matches played between the two teams. However, Lahore Qalandars are looking a bit better this time as compared to the previous years despite losses.

The team made three changes for the last game against Quetta Gladiators as Agha Salman, Brendan Taylor and Shaheen Afridi made way for Gauhar Ali, Corey Anderson and Yasir Shah. Fakhar Zaman and AB de Villiers are their lead batsmen and both have notched up a couple of good knocks each.

AB b de Villiers has also been named the captain in the absence of Mohammad Hafeez and has been doing a fine job. Sohail Akhtar will continue to open the batting along with Fakhar Zaman. Salman Butt will bat at No. 3.

The team also has an all-rounder in Corey Anderson who is capable of scoring a few quick runs. A big change has been due to their bowling lineup which has Haris Rauf and Rahat Ali both of whom have hit the straps since the beginning of the tournament. Sandeep Lamichhane has also joined the team which has further strengthened their bowling order.

Quetta Gladiators are expected to field the same playing XI in this match. Shane Watson will open the batting along with Ahsan Ali while Rilee Rossouw will come at one drop. Both Watson and Rossouw have been in good touch and have shouldered the batting responsibility.

Umar Akmal has been there spearhead and is the leading run-scorer of the tournament. Among the bowlers, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Nawaz and Ghulam Mudassar will be the main threats

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Lahore Qalandars- Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar, Salman Butt, AB de Villiers (c), Corey Anderson, David Wiese, Gauhar Ali (wk), Yasir Shah, Sandeep Lamichhane, Haris Rauf, Rahat Ali
