Quetta Gladiators are comfortably placed at the top of the points table with four wins from four matches.


They secured a thrilling victory in the last game as skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed smashed a six on the last delivery to score a half-century and take the team to the target.

Karachi Kings had won their first match on the back of a 157-run opening partnership between Babar Azam and Liam Livingstone. Since then their performance has not been up to the mark and they have lost three consecutive matches.

 Shane Watson has been one of the prime stars for the team and smashed 81 against Islamabad United and 61 against Multan Sultans. Umar Akmal has also been batting well and made a 50-ball 75 in the team's first game.


The Gladiators also have Rilee Rossouw who finished as the highest run-scorer in the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League and Sarfaraz Ahmed who won them the last match. Among the bowlers, Sohail Tanvir is their best bet and backed his four-wicket haul against Islamabad United with 2-21 against Lahore Qalandars.

Karachi Kings have made a change in their batting order as they have slotted New Zealand opener Colin Munro along with Babar Azam while Liam Livingstone has been pushed down the order. Ben Dunk ended as the top-scorer in the last match with a 32-ball 49 as he continued his Big Bash League form.

Mohammad Amir and Usman Shinwari are their lead bowlers. Imad Wasim was the pick of the bowlers last time and claimed figures of 2-27.

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

 

Quetta Gladiators- Shane Watson, Ahsan Ali, Rilee Rossouw, Umar Akmal, Sarfraz Ahmed, Dwayne Bravo, Mohammad Nawaz, Ghulam Mudassar, Sohail Tanvir, Anwar Ali, Fawad Ahmed

Karachi Kings- Babar Azam, Colin Munro, Liam Livingstone, Ben Dunk, Colin Ingram, Awais Zia, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Usman Shinwari, Aamer Yamin, Umer Khan
