Quetta Gladiators were looking invincible with four wins from the first four matches but have since suffered two defeats.

Peshawar Zalmi have also won four out of their six matches and are one of the contenders for the title. The last time that the two teams met in this season, Quetta won the match by six wickets, led by a 76-run hand from Umar Akmal.

Both Shane Watson and Umar Akmal have two half-centuries from their six matches and have scored around the 200-run mark. Rilee Rossouw has also played a couple of good knocks for the team and possesses a lot of talent in the shortest format.

Among the bowlers, Sohail Tanvir has bagged nine wickets from six matches and had bowled at an economy of just over six. Harry Gurney is coming off a good Big Bash League and would fit into the playing XI.

Peshawar Zalmi have decided to bank on their four overseas picks in Andre Fletcher, Kieron Pollard, Liam Dawson and captain Darren Sammy. One of their most dangerous batsman Kamran Akmal has not been able to shine. His lack of form has been compensated to some extent by good knocks from Imam-ul-Haq, Kieron Pollard and Umar Amin.

Hasan Ali has been exceptional for the team and has picked up 16 wickets from six matches. Wahab Riaz has not been able to match that and has eight wickets but has bowled at an excellent economy rate.

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

Quetta Gladiators- Shane Watson, Ahsan Ali, Rilee Rossouw, Umar Akmal, Anwar Ali, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Sohail Tanvir, Fawad Ahmed, Mohammad Hasnain, Harry Gurney

Peshawar Zalmi- Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Andre Fletcher, Umar Amin, Liam Dawson, Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Ibtisam Sheikh, Hasan Ali, Umaid Asif, Wahab Riaz
