- Karachi Kings will have been extremely disappointed with their start to this season’s PSL after losing by seven wickets to reigning champions Multan Sultans in the curtain raiser of this year’s tournament.
- Fast bowler Mohammad Amir not featuring due to a side strain was a huge blow for the Kings and he is set to miss out once again here, whilst all-rounder Imad Wasim continues to serve a mandatory period of quarantine and it remains to be seen whether he will be available for this one.
- Despite losing their opening match against Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators have plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the new PSL campaign based on their performance, which saw them rack up 190/4 from their 20 overs, even if they didn't manage to defend the total.
- Overseas players James Vince and Jason Roy remain unavailable due to their England commitments, but are set to join the team later in the tournament, however Roy's replacement Will Smeed made a brilliant impact on debut, the Somerset opener smashing 97 from 62 balls.
It was clear that not having key players such as Amir and Imad affected Karachi Kings against Multan with their individual abilities and experience so important to the team. The batting also poses a worry with a potential over-reliance on captain Babar Azam, although fellow opener Sharjeel Khan showed some promise in the first match of the tournament, hitting 43 from 31 balls. Against a Quetta Gladiators side full of express pace within their bowling unit, combined with plenty of seasoned veterans such as Sohail Tanvir and James Faulkner, Karachi may be set to struggle once again in this one. With that in mind, as well as the top order firepower that openers Smeed and Ahsan Ali possess, consider backing Quetta to inflict a second straight PSL defeat on the Kings.
