Pakistan Super League
Date: 14th March 2018
Venue: Sharjah International Cricket Stadium
As the PSL moves towards its business end in the 2018 edition, Lahore Qalandars buoyed by two successive wins after having lost six-straight matches will take on Quetta Gladiators on March 14th. The match will be played at the picturesque Sharjah Cricket stadium.
Here's a complete analysis of both the teams and the marquee players who'll have a lasting effect on the match:
Captain: Sarfaraz Ahmed
On the back of a hat-trick of wins, the belligerent Gladiators will take on Lahore qalandars in a bid to consolidate their position amongst the top-ranked teams. They will be lead by Sarfaraz Ahmed, who had a great outing in the last game that fetched him the Man of the Match award. While Kevin Pieterson has two back-to-back good innings to his credit, Rillie Rossow who has endured an ordinary tournament thus far might make way for Jason Roy who has joined the team after the culmination of his English duties.
Shane Watson, Kevin Pietersen, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Anwar Ali, Ben Laughlin/Jason Roy, Rilee Rossouw/Jason Roy, Asad Shafiq, Rameez Raja, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Khan
Captain: Brendon McCullum
After enduring six-straight defeats Lahore Qalandars got their fledgling campaign back on track including one in the super over thanks to Sunil Narine and Agha Salman's half-century. The arrival of Anton Devcich has bolstered the top-order and Brendon McCullum would be looking to field the same line-up against the Gladiators.
