Grant Elliott was once again amongst the wickets as he picked a four-wicket haul to restrict Karachi Kings to 126 following which the Quetta Gladiators batsmen chased down the target in the penultimate over to secure a five-wicket win in the 14th match of the Pakistan Super League in Sharjah.
Karachi Kings won the toss and decided to bat first with Mohammad Amir yet to recover from a groin injury while Quetta Gladiators retained their winning combination.
Shoaib Malik (45) and James Vince (23) took the Karachi Kings to 49 for one in the powerplay after the early loss of Nauman Anwar (6) who was castled by Anwar Ali (1-15).
Elliott (4-15) changed the complexion of the game as he dismissed Vince, Shakib Al Hasan (10), Ravi Bopara (14) and Sohail Tanvir (8) while Mohammad Nabi (1-17) got the better of Malik as the rest of the Karachi Kings batsmen imploded.
The Kings were eventually restricted to 126 for nine in the 20 overs with Elliott being the pick of the Quetta Gladiators bowlers once again.
In their chase of 127, Ahmed Shehzad (41) got the Quetta Gladiators to flier racing to 47 for one in the powerplay.
Kevin Pietersen (26) smashed a couple of sixes during his 22-ball knock before he was snared by Usama Mir (2-27) who also removed Shehzad earlier.
Hasan (1-34) trapped Elliott (5) lbw as the Quetta Gladiators lost four wickets with the score reading 103.
With 23 more runs needed for the victory, skipper Sarfraz Ahmed (29 not out) held his nerve and ensured Quetta Gladiators reached the target in 18.5 overs.
The win has also taken the Gladiators to the top of the table. Elliott was once again declared the man of the match.
