Lahore Qalandars vs Quetta Gladiators, PSL 2021
Last season’s runners-up, Lahore Qalandars, will bid for a second win in as many games at the start of the 2021 Pakistan Super League when they take on Quetta Gladiators. They two teams meet at the National Stadium, Karachi, on February 22 and the live action starts at 19:00 local time.
The Qalandars, who lost to Multan Sultans in last season’s final, had Shaheen Afridi to thank for their opening win against Peshawar Zalmi. In a fiery bowling spell, Afridi took 3-14 to restrict Peshawar Zalmi to 140/6, and the Qalandars claimed a four-wicket win with nine balls to spare.
Afridi should be relishing the chance to now take on a fragile Quetta Gladiators’ batting line-up, who were bowled out for just 121 in their opening game. They suffered a seven-wicket defeat to Karachi Kings, with the defending champions only requiring 13.5 overs to get home despite Mohammad Hasnain’s 2-18.
