In match number 8, we will be witnessing some action-packed scenes between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators. While the Gladiators have lost both their opening fixtures, Zalmi are in a tad better position. They have 1 win and 1 loss under their belt so far. Though these are early days, the teams would love to strengthen their grip on the points table.
Peshawar Zalmi won their inaugural game of the season but are coming on the back off a loss. Batting first, they could only muster 140 runs. The bowlers failed to defend the total and Qalandars easily chased down the total. Tom Cohler-Cadmore has top-scored for them with just 53 runs in two matches.
The Gladiators are in dire straits already. Though these are early days, ideally Quetta should try to prevent this slump. Chris Gayle was their top-scorer but unfortunately, he is not available due to his national commitments. Mohammed Hasnain has been their top bowler, having picked up 2 wickets. He has had a E/R of 6.68 and bowling average of 24.
