After a good first half, Islamabad United start the second phase with a clash against Quetta Gladiators who are looking to redeem themselves after a sloppy first half. While United won three and lost two in their five games in the first half, Gladiators have lost three and won two. With Jason Roy back in the XI, Gladiators will fancy their chance against Shadab Khan’s Islamabad. It is expected to be a high-scoring contest with two England explosive openers (Roy and Alex Hales) in both teams.
