Online Cricket Betting and Match Prediction PSL- Quetta Gladiators v Lahore Qalandars
Quetta Gladiators have got off to a great start this season as they have won each of their three matches.
Shane Watson has played a major role in the team's victories and is coming off back to back half-centuries in both the last matches. Apart from his century, he did not have pretty much to show in the recently concluded Big Bash League but seems like the pitches in UAE suit his style of play.
Another player who has shone for Quetta Gladiators is Umar Akmal who has two 40+ scores. Rilee Rossouw also showed his worth with an unbeaten 67 in the last match which included 10 fours and one six as the batsman took a special liking to Andre Russell.
Among the bowlers, Sohail Tanvir has already picked up a four-fer while Fawad Ahmed has picked up a three-wicket haul.
Lahore Qalandars are going through a lot of changes after Mohammad Hafeez was ruled out of the tournament due to a thumb injury. The disgraced Salman Butt has been included in the squad which raised many eyebrows. The captaincy has been transferred to AB de Villiers who seems to have adjusted well as he scored a half-century in the last game.
Fakhar Zaman and Sohail Akhtar are also looking in good touch. In the bowling department, Rahat Ali has been consistent and has picked up eight wickets from three matches while Haris Rauf claimed 4-23 against Karachi Kings. The addition of Sandeep Lamichhane will further boost their bowling.
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, Mohammad Irfan, Fawad Ahmed
Lahore Qalandars- Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar, Brendan Taylor, AB de Villiers, Salman Butt, David Wiese, Agha Salman, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Rahat Ali, Sandeep Lamichhane
