Both of the contestants, IU and LQ, when played their last encounter in Karachi leg, won respectively against the Quetta Gladiators (QG) and Karachi Kings (KK). It would be hard to say how things would commence under the Abu Dhabi leg but the Qalandars probably have an edge with their batting line-up.
This line-up can be totaled by United’s bowling line-up with the likes of Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf who fit Abu Dhabi’s stadium’ conditions best with their economy. They will be joined by more of their bowlers. Moreover, both the teams, IU and LQ, rank third and fourth respectively on the points table winning three out of four games played yet.
