The United have a lot to prove if they want to shrug off their poor performance from the previous season and go right to the distance. That will need to change if the Gladiators want to deliver something for their fans.
Up against them will be the Quetta Gladiators who surprised a lot of fans by marching into the final of the previous season but their progress was halted by a strong Islamabad United team who defeated them to win the title. Still, the Gladiators will feel satisfied having made the title-decider and ending runner-up. Can they go one better, however, is what will need to be seen.
As far as the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led Gladiators are concerned, the presence of Kevin Pietersen and Luke Wright should add a lot of spice to their batting. Will both feature in the playing XI though? With Tymal Mills, Nathan McCullum and Thisara Perera also baying for two spots in the side, the Quetta Gladiators selectors have a lot to ponder going into this encounter.
It’s how the domestic cricketers perform for the Gladiators given the absence of really big names except for the captain himself. Umar Gul will look to use this as a comeback chance while there’s left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar, who had a good previous season.
