Toss: Peshawar Zalmi have won the toss and elected to field first against Quetta Gladiators

 

Sarfaraz-led Quetta Gladiators are set to face 2017 champions Sammy-led Peshawar Zalmi in the ongoing Pakistan Super League 2019 Qualifier at the National Stadium Karachi on Wednesday.

It is pertinent to mention here that Gladiators have finished runner-up in 2016 and 2017, while Zalmi outlasted them in the third Vs fourth Eliminator in 2018.

The losing side of the Qualifier will have another opportunity to qualify for the final when they will meet the winner of Thursday’s Eliminator between Karachi Kings and Islamabad United on Friday.

Captain Gladiators’ Sarfaraz Ahmed confident ahead of Qualifier. He said that the rivalry against Peshawar Zalmi is exemplary.

While admitting that Quetta Gladiators had a more balanced squad, with the induction of West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, Sarfaraz said “We confident to lift the PSL title this year losing the final twice.

On the other hand, Zalmi will be happy at the return to form of wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal who smashed a 48-ball 86 against Karachi in the last league match on Monday.

However, their pace attack is their strong point as it can pose big challenge for Quetta’s batting. Hasan Ali leads the wicket chart with 21 wickets followed by Wahab Riaz (13 wickets), Sameen Gul (nine), Umaid Asif (seven) and Tymal Mills (five).

Zalmi’s skipper Daren Sammy hoped his pace attack and Kamran win him more matches.

“Kamran is our real match-winner and is backed up by pace attack led by Hasan. It’s nice to see Wahab Riaz giving him full support,” said Sammy. “It will be tough to score against our fast bowlers.”

According to details, Gladiators-Zalmi rivalry began in 2016 when both the sides shared a match each in the first round, before Gladiators won the war of Qualifier when medium-pacer Aizaz Cheema took two wickets and conceded a single off the last-ball as Peshawar failed to chase down a small target of 134 runs.
Peshawar won one of the league matches in 2017, while the other was rained-off in Sharjah before another Qualifier went to Quetta, this time too Peshawar falling short by one-run in pursuit of a 201-run target. On that day, Hasan Ali was run-out when two runs were needed off the last-ball.

But Peshawar had the last laugh, clinching the final and the title with a big 58-run victory against a depleted Quetta, who were without their top foreign players.

They again shared a league match each in 2018, before Peshawar snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by one-run in the Eliminator in Lahore.

The match will start at 07:00pm PST.
