The match no. 23 of PSL 2021 will see Quetta Gladiators locking horns with Lahore Qalandars in what is going to be an extremely crucial clash for both the sides for very different reasons. While the Qalandars will be looking to go back to top of the table with a win, the Gladiators would be desperate for two points in this contest to give themselves an outside chance of going ahead in the tournament. There will a lot to play for both sides and the fans can certainly expect a mouth-watering contest in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
All eyes will be on Gladiators' wicketkeeper and captain Sarfaraz Ahmed as the veteran cricketer will need to lead his side from the front if they have to make their way back into the tournament. Fakhar Zaman and Sohail Akhtar are the in-form batsmen and should be certain picks in your side. Apart from them, youngster Saim Ayub looked good in the previous match and could prove to be the X-Factor in this contest. James Faulkner is in fantastic form in the tournament and could be a good pick for captain/vice-captain as well. Among the bowlers, Rashid Khan, Shaheen Afridi and Zahid Mahmood could get some crucial points with their ability to take wickets.
