Lahore Qalandars set to face Quetta Gladiators today at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium


DUBAI: Fifth-placed Lahore Qalandars are set to face top-ranked Quetta Gladiators in today’s first fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Qalandars and Gladiators are fresh off their unforgettable encounter from Saturday, where skipper Sarfraz Ahmed hit a six off the last ball from David Weise to take his team to a dramatic three-wicket win in Sharjah.

Gladiators chased down Qalandars’ total of 143-7 with no ball to spare, with Sarfraz top-scoring with 52 off 36 balls and newcomer Ahsan Ali contributing with 40 off 29. Ghulam Mudassar claimed three for 21.

Qalandars regained their momentum somewhat when they chased down a mammoth 200 against Multan Sultans in a thrilling finish, with AB de Villiers smashing a heroic 52 not out off 29 balls and Weise pitching in with an unbeaten 45 off 20.

The de Villiers-led Qalandars have two wins from five matches, whereas Gladiators’ only defeat came against Karachi Kings.
