PSL 2021: Lahore Qalandars Vs Quetta Gladiators, Match No. 23
Lahore Qalandars will be aiming to bounce back from the defeat they faced at the hands of Islamabad United in the last game as they will take on Quetta Gladiators in match 23 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) sixth edition.
Lahore went down by 28 runs against Islamabad on Saturday after first reducing them to 20 runs for 5 wickets and then being at 86 runs for 2 wickets in 10 overs and chased 153 runs target. They were bowled out for 124 after their middle-order collapsed.
The defeat may be an eye-opener for Lahore head coach Aqib Javed and captain Sohail Akhtar but the side is not going to get panicked and unlikely to make any changes against Quetta.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, the former champions have won just one out of their seven games in the tournament so far and another defeat can throw out them of the contention to qualify for the play-offs.
They will be, undoubtedly, under pressure as their batting and bowling have been disappointing up till now. After being outclassed by Islamabad in the first outing, they were overpowered by strong Peshawar Zalmi’s side.
The match between the two teams is scheduled to start at 6 pm.
