The Quetta Gladiators will face the Peshawar Zalmi in Match 19 of PSL 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on Saturday. In their previous encounter, the Peshawar Zalmi went down to the Lahore Qalandars by 10 runs. However, the last time they faced the Quetta Gladiators in Karachi, they won that contest by three wickets.
The Peshawar Zalmi had a poor game with both bat and ball against the Lahore Qalandars. Bowling first, they conceded 170 runs as Tim David played an excellent knock of 64 not out in 36 balls. Fabian Allen claimed two wickets for Peshawar Zalmi, but conceded 36 runs in three overs. Mohammad Irfan went at a run-a-ball, but managed only one wicket.
Shoaib Malik smashed a superb 73 off 48 balls. However, it was a one-man effort as the Peshawar Zalmi managed only 160 for 8 in their 20 overs. Their batting crumbled at the hands of Rashid Khan, who claimed 5 for 20.
For the Quetta Gladiators, this will be the second match in as many days. They first face Islamabad United on Friday before taking on the Peshawar Zalmi a day later. The Quetta Gladiators won only one of the PSL 2021 encounters held in Pakistan, so they would be keen to turn things around.
