Quetta Gladiators vs Lahore Qalandars, match 23
Match day: Tuesday
Match Time: 6:00 PM PST, 5:00 PM GMT
Venue: Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium
Pitch and weather report:
Abu Dhabi pitches are known to favor the batsmen and the bowlers equally. We have seen the target of 150+ bearly chasable in the PSL 6, whereas the target below 150 has easily been chased. This streak got broken in the KK vs IU encounter as the Kings, who batted first, scored 190 putting a critical target of 191 for the Shadab-led men. But the Red Hot squad comfortably chases on losing two wickets only.
Hence, it might now be not easy to analyze the condition on the diverse pitch. It was speculated that spinners get many delights here, but so far, the average of the eight winded-up matches showcases the pacers as the stable bowlers at the venue.
- The winds will blow around 11-13 km/h
- The humidity is expected to be 44-47%
- As the match will begin at 5:00 PM local, the temperature is supposed to be over 37 degrees celsius and eventually to drop down with the passing hours.
In the 23rd game of the extravaganza, the most successful and the most unsuccessful PSL teams are going to contest. Qalandars have been amplifying boldly under Sohail Akhtar as PSL 5 wasn’t the only season to observe their majesty. The form continues in PSL 6, too, with some extraordinary performance being available to watch.
On the other hand, Gladiators have been undeniably struggling after clinching their maiden PSL trophy in 2019. The PSL 2020 went dull for the Sarfaraz-led men and the mold commences in the going on the event too. They are ordered at the end of the points table accomplishing a single out of the seven featured.
