Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators, PSL 2021

Winless Quetta Gladiators will look to end their three-game losing start to the 2021 Pakistan Super League, when they take on an Islamabad United side whose winning start came to a sudden halt last time out. The match takes place at Karachi’s National Cricket Stadium on March 1 and the live action gets underway at 19:00 local time.

After wins against Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings batting second, Islamabad’s batsmen failed against Peshawar Zalmi last time out. After being asked to bat first instead, Alex Hales hit 41 from 27 balls but Islamabad slumped to 118 all out and a six-wicket loss to Peshawar Zalmi despite Hasan Ali’s 2-14 from his four overs.

Quetta Gladiators are yet to taste victory of any kind in this season’s tournament, meanwhile. They have been asked to bat first on all three occasions, but scores of 121 and 178/6 were below par and they even failed to defend 198/7 last time out despite Sarfaraz Ahmed having scored 81 from 40 balls against Peshawar Zalmi

ISU vs QTG Toss Prediction

Quetta Gladiators are yet to win the toss and have been asked to bat first each time so far. With the toss so key, the Gladiators are due to win this one and will field first if they do.

Weather Report

Karachi’s weather will be much the same as last week – hot and dry with zero chance of rain.

Pitch Condition

The wicket at Karachi favours batting, though the fast men have had their rewards from a quick surface too.

Islamabad United Team News & Playing 11

ISU Team News

Islamabad United brought Paul Stirling and Fawad Ahmed in last time out and, despite the quality the two clearly possess, they may regret that decision after their loss. There could be a few more changes this time as a result, with Rohail Nazir a possible to come in too.

ISU Key Players

  • Alex Hales: Islamabad’s top batsman so far, having scored 29, 46 and 41 in the three games so far, to pick up in the form he showed at the BBL too.
  • Hasan Ali: After wickets in each of the first two games, he was the pick of the bowlers last time out as he claimed 2-14 from four overs and briefly offered hope of a shock comeback.
  • Mohammad Wasim: Bowled well on debut in the first game and his bowling briefly gave hope of an unlikely comeback last time too as he struck in his first over.

ISU Team Form

Islamabad United started the season with wins against Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings, chasing 197 to beat the latter by five wickets in a particularly good batting display. The opposite was true despite Alex Hales’ 41 last time out, however, as they slumped to 118 all out in a six-wicket loss to Peshawar Zalmi.

Islamabad United Predicted Playing 11

Alex Hales, Paul Stirling, Shadab Khan (c), Hussain Talat, Rohail Nazir (wk), Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Lewis Gregory, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim

Quetta Gladiators Team News & Playing 11

QTG Team News

Faf du Plessis replaced Chris Gayle in PSL 2021, who is on international duty, for the match last time out. He was one of a few changes, which also saw Saim Ayub move up the batting order and Cameron Delport replace Tom Banton. After his expensive bowling in the last two games, Usman Shiwari could be under pressure with Naseem Shah waiting in the wings. Dale Steyn was already added to the bowling line-up last time out.

QTG Key Players

  • Faf du Plessis: With Chris Gayle now absent, Quetta moved fast to acquire the experienced South African and he hit 37 from 26 balls in his first game last time out.
  • Mohammad Hasnain: Has not lived up to the heights of his 2-18 in the opening game but he did grab a wicket last time out and has starred against Islamabad before. He will feel he has a point to prove after accidently letting five wides slip just as he looked to clawing things back in the final over.
  • Sarfaraz Ahmed: Followed up a 33-ball 40 in the previous game with an excellent 81 from 40 balls last time out.

QTG Team Form

Batting first in each game so far, Quetta Gladiators’ batting is slowly improving but they are still yet to win. They were bowled out for 121 on their way to defeat by Karachi Kings and failed to defend 178/6 against Lahore Qalandars. Last time out, Quetta hit 198/7 thanks to Sarfaraz Ahmed’s 81 but Peshawar Zalmi beat them with three balls and three wickets to spare.

Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators Team Form in Last Five Matches



ISU vs QTG Head to Head

Quetta Gladiators have won their last four matches against Islamabad United despite their own poor form last season. It was the second consecutive season in which the Gladiators had done the double over Islamabad, as they successfully chased to 171/7 and 190/5 in their two wins. Mohammad Hasnain’s four wickets restricted Islamabad to 168 all out in the first meeting, and Quetta won by three wickets with nine balls to spare. Most recently, Colin Ingram’s 63* lifted Islamabad to 187/7 and Jason Roy’s half-century followed by Ben Cutting’s late hitting were enough combined for a five-wicket win with two balls to spare.

Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators Top Team Batsmen

Alex Hales is Islamabad United’s top team batsman and while he has not yet gone big, his batting form has still showed why he is favourite to be top team batsman in this game too. Faf du Plessis’ arrival makes him favourite to be Quetta Gladiators’ top team batsman, though Sarfaraz Ahmed took those honours last time out.

Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators Top Team Bowlers

Hasan Ali remains Islamabad United’s top team bowler with Bet365 and Betway, while it is Mohammad Hasnain for Quetta Gladiators’ top team bowler.

Hasan Ali leads the Islamabad United attack but he has not been prolific with the ball in terms of wickets. He has just bowled very well. He could be a good bet, but the rewards are higher if you back another in-form bowler in Mohammad Wasim to be Islamabad United’s top team bowler – who does have more wickets so far.

For Quetta Gladiators, Mohammad Hasnain has been their top team bowler in this fixture and he may feel he has something to prove after his wides in the final over ended any hope of snatching victory last time out.

ISU vs QTG Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Sarfaraz Ahmed’s batting last time out showed why he is the must-pick behind the stumps, though it could be worth picking both listed Quetta wicket-keepers given Azam Khan has more than a century of points to his name too.

  • Batsmen

    Alex Hales is the top batting choice, of that there is little doubt. Beyond him, Faf du Plessis has replaced Chris Gayle and should be Quetta’s key man, while both Hussain Talat and Iftikhar Ahmed could be good value at 8.5 credits apiece. Talat has scored more points so far if you need to split them.

  • All rounder

    Shadab Khan is yet to show his best form with bat and ball, so shopping at the other end of the pricescale could be more rewarding. Mohammad Wasim is just eight credits but has bowled well so far. Islamabad also have Faheem Ashraf among their key all-rounders and Lewis Gregory could be worth picking should he return too – he was vital to their opening win and they lost without him last time out.

  • Bowlers

    Hasan Ali and Mohammad Hasnain lead their respective bowling line-ups and should be picked at nine credits apiece. Dale Steyn was back for Quetta last time out, meanwhile, and if he maintains his place you could soon be getting a return on the 8.5-credit cost.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Alex Hales is in good form with the bat and looks to be closing in on a big performance. If this is the game he delivers, he will be well worth the captain pick. Faf du Plessis leads Quetta’s batting now, but Mohammad Wasim could be a safer vice-captain pick thanks to his steady bowling form so far.

ISU vs QTG Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales (c), Faf du Plessis, Hussain Talat

  • All Rounder:Lewis Gregory, Mohammad Wasim (vc), Faheem Ashraf

  • Wicket Keeper:Sarfaraz Ahmed, Azam Khan

  • Bowler:Hasan Ali, Dale Steyn, Mohammad Hasnain
