Match 16: KAR vs QUE

 

Preview

The sixteenth match of the Pakistan T20 League will be played between the Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators. The game is scheduled to be played at the iconic National Stadium in Karachi on Thursday, February 29. 

In head-to-head records, QUE holds an advantage with a 6-4 lead over KAR in the last five years. In their previous encounter, Quetta emerged victorious by four wickets, demonstrating their ability to settle tight encounters. 

Karachi Kings are coming into this encounter to seek redemption after the recent defeat against Islamabad United. Despite commendable performances from Keiron Pollard who smashed 48 runs along with Irfan Khan’s 27, Islamabad chased down 165 runs with ease. Mohammad Nawaz picked up a single wicket, but the efforts weren’t enough to restrict Karachi from tasting defeat.

On the other side, Quetta will be targeting a comeback from their loss against Multan Sultans. Despite solid efforts from Khawaja Nafay and Rilee Rossouw with the bat scoring 36 and 30 runs respectively, Quetta failed to chase down a total of 181 runs. Mohammad Amir picked two crucial wickets with the ball, but all went in vain as QUE fell short of 13 runs in the end.
