In match number 8, Peshawar Zalmi take on Quetta Gladiators. This match promises gritty and exciting action. The match is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM (IST). Peshawar have won 1 game and lost1 game while Quetta have been decimated in both of their opening games. It is still early days in this tournament but it is imperative for the teams to cash in on opportunities quickly.
Peshawar Zalmi are currently on the fourth position in the points table with a NRR of -0.086. Batting first in their last game, they could only muster 140 runs. The bowlers failed to defend the total and Qalandars easily chased down the total. Tom Cohler-Cadmore top-scored for them in the last game with 53 runs. His innings was laced with 6 fours and 1 six.
The Gladiators are in dire straits already. Though these are early days, ideally Quetta should try to prevent this slump. They are at the bottom of the table and have lost both their opening games. Their bowling was absolutely off-color in the last game and fielding was below-par. Usman Shinwari and Mohammed Shinwari conceded runs at huge E/Rs. Mohammed Nawaz was fantastic in his 2 overs.
There are no injury news or updates at the present moment. Will update ifKamran Akmal
there are any. Tom Cohler-Cadmore and Wahab Riaz are the men to watch out for.
Star batsman Chris Gayle will not be available for the rest of the tournament because of his international commitments. Kamran Akmal and Tom Banton are the men to watch out for.
