Winless Karachi Kings will host Quetta Gladiators in Match 6 of the Pakistan Super League 2023 on Saturday, February 18. Both the teams are craving for their maiden win in the league and will be hoping to open their account. While Karachi Kings was shocked in their first two games, Gladiators were defeated in their only game they played. Let’s look at the prediction for ‘who will win’ between Kings and Gladiators.


Pitch Report:

The pitch at the National Stadium has been pretty good for batting and bowlers won’t have a lot of room for error. However, spinners might get some assistance after a period of time.

Team Analysis:

Sarfaraz Ahmed-led Quetta Gladiators had a horrific start of the Pakistan Super League season as they suffered 9-wicket defeat by Multan Sultans on Wednesday, February 15. Jason Roy tried his best to provide solid start to his side but collective failures from the middle-order exposed Gladiators. Gladiators have some of the best T20 batters - Sarfaraz Ahmed, Martin Guptill, Umar Akmal, Iftikhar Ahmed and Mohammad Hafeez – in their squad. A team effort from the side might help them to register their maiden win in the league.

Meanwhile, Karachi Kings batted well in their previous game against Islamabad United but bowlers failed miserably to defend 173. Sharjeel Khan (34), and Haider Ali (59) batted brilliantly in the first innings. Although, Md. Amir and Muhammad Musa bagged two wickets each, but others leaked too much runs in the game.

Probable playing XI:

Karachi Kings:

James Vince, Sharjeel Khan, Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Matthew Wade (wk), Imad Wasim (c), Irfan Khan, James Fuller, Andrew Tye, Muhammad Musa, Mohammad Amir

Quetta Gladiators:

Jason Roy, Martin Guptill, Umar Akmal, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Mohammad Hafeez, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Abdul Bangalzai, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Nuwan Thushara
