The defending champions, Islamabad United were pegged back by Multan Sultans on Saturday after a victorious start to this year's PSL. They now face the Quetta Gladiators who won their first game and are looking to sustain the winning momentum in their last match in the first Dubai leg.

The likes of Shadab Khan and Hussain Talat would be eager to bounce back from what was a disheartening loss, with a win against the Gladiators.

Squads to choose from:

Islamabad United:

Luke Ronchi, Sahibzada Farhan, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Faheem Ashraf, Zafar Gohar, Waqas Maqsood, Rumman Raees, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Sami (C), Ian Bell, Philip Salt, Cameron Delport, Samit Patel, Muhammad Musa, Wayne Parnell, Zahir Khan, Amad Butt, Rizwan Hussain, Nasir Nawaz.

Quetta Gladiators:

Sarfraz Ahmed (C), Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Nawaz, Rilee Rossouw, Umar Akmal, Fawad Ahmed, Anwar Ali, Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Asghar, Danish Aziz, Ahsan Ali, Ghulam Mudassar, Mohammad Hasnain, Harry Gurney, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Azam Khan, Jalat Khan, Mohammad Irfan Jr, Dwayne Smith, Max Waller

Playing XI Updates:

Islamabad United:

Philip Salt could face the axe after two disappointing outings for Islamabad. Ian Bell could slot in for the Sussex batsman, with his record against spin over the past twelve points holding him in good stead. Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf provide much-needed balance to the side and would be crucial to their side's fortunes on Sunday.

Possible XI: Rizwan, Ronchi(WK), Talat, Delport, Bell, Asif Ali, Shadab, Samit Patel, Faheem, Sami(C) and Maqsood.


Quetta Gladiators:

After a win in their first match against a formidable Peshawar Zalmi side, no changes are expected for the Gladiators. Umar Akmal played a sensible knock to guide them to victory and was ably supported by Sarfraz Ahmed and Dwayne Smith.

Possible XI: Shehzad, Watson, Rossouw, Akmal, Sarfraz (C&WK), D. Smith, Nawaz, Mudassar, Tanvir, Ahmed and Irfan Jr.

Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:

Wicket-keeper: Luke Ronchi scored a brilliant fifty on a tough pitch against Multan and should be backed for another good performance although Sarfraz Ahmed isn't a bad option either.

Batsmen: Rilee Rossouw and Umar Akmal were decent in their first match and along with the likes of Hussain Talat, Asif Ali and Cameron Delport, should prove to be viable options to have in the side. Ahmed Shehzad wasn't able to trouble the scorers in the first match and could be a handy pick on a pitch that he is used to playing.

All-rounders: Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Nawaz have ample experience in the international circuit and are must-have players in the side. All three of them are products of the PSL itself and should be the cornerstones of your fantasy team.

Bowlers: Mudassar proved handy with his variations and could be a great option to have in the side along with Maqsood and Fawad Ahmed. Mohammad Sami could also slot in for the youngster, Maqsood in case a more experienced option is required.

Captain: Rilee Rossouw has been in great touch of late, finishing as the top run-scorer in the BPL. He should be backed to continue his good form and be appointed as captain with Hussain Talat and Shadab Khan viable alternatives.

Fantasy Suggestion #1: Luke Ronchi (WK), Rilee Rossouw, Umar Akmal, Hussain Talat, Cameron Delport, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Ghulam Mudassar, Waqas Maqsood and Fawad Ahmed. Captain: Rilee Rossouw

Fantasy Suggestion #2: Sarfraz Ahmed (WK), Ahmed Shehzad, Rilee Rossouw, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Sami, Mudassar Ahmed and Mohammad Irfan Jr. Captain: Shadab Khan
