The Lahore Qalandars Vs Quetta Gladiators is the second fixture of the day. Both sides are in decent positions with Qalandars looking like serious title contenders at second. They recently ended Multan’s winning streak, and are looking very strong batting first.
Quetta Gladiators are in on the back of a strong win as well and will be pleased to see Sarfaraz Ahmed back in form. Along with Sarfaraz Ahmed, Gladiators have seen a strong push from the likes of Umar Akmal and Jason Roy, extending their explosiveness.

With no rain, the weather is clear and cool for the Lahore Qalandars Vs Quetta Gladiators match-up.
The surface is flat and runs are easy to come by. Chasing in night games are also slightly easier indicating that dew could be a factor as the evening moves on.
Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Philip Salt (wk), Harry Brook, David Wiese, Rashid Khan, Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan
James Vince, Ahsan Ali, Ben Duckett, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Sohail Tanvir, James Faulkner, Naseem Shah, Abdul Bangalzai
Both sides will be going unchanged after strong wins in their previous games.
Umar Akmal returns to the Pakistan Super League, and started with a bang. He hit three sixers in an eight ball cameo in the previous game, and is back to prove his talent.
Rashid Khan was a late entrant to the PSL tournament, but this season has been a really good one. He is taking wickets consistently and has looked a very effective bowler through the season.
With strong players in both sides, and both teams doing well, the match promises to be a thriller and it is tough to predict a winner. However, with more X-factor players in the Qalandars, they seem to have a slight edge unless the Gladiators bring some vintage talent back into play.
Match Prediction: Lahore Qalandars will win the match.
