Quetta Gladiators will look to bounce back from a disappointing defeat in their opening match as they face Lahore Qalandars in the fourth match of PSL 2021 tonight. Sarfaraz’s men had a poor outing in the first match with the batting unit completely dominated by the Karachi Kings bowlers. There are a few changes expected in their line-up as they look to get off the mark in PSL 6.
Lahore managed to hold their nerve against Peshawar Zalmi and chased down the target with relative ease in the end. Mohammad Hafeez continued his sparkling form and guided the Qalandars to a win in their first match of the campaign. Shaheen Afridi and Rashid Khan showed their class on the pitch as Lahore registered their first points of the tournament.
The match will begin at 7 pm Pakistan Standard Time as both the teams go head to head in an exciting contest.

Players to Lookout For
Rashid Khan might have gone wicket-less in the first match but his exploits with the bat helped Lahore to a win in their first match. Rashid scored 27 runs off 15 balls in the run chase and finished things off in style by hitting a ‘helicopter slog’ six. Rashid will be determined to open his wickets account in the next match.
Quetta might have disappointed but Chris Gayle looked to be in fine nick in the first match. Gayle scored 39 runs off 24 balls, including 2 huge sixes before being caught out. This will be Gayle’s last match in PSL this season and he will be looking to go out with a bang.
