Islamabad United vs. Quetta Gladiator 1st T20 Match Prediction 4 Feb 2016

The first edition of the Pakistan Premier League kicks off on February 4th in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in United Arab Emirates and will feature Islamabad United taking on Quetta Gladiators. The match is scheduled to start at 20:00 hrs, local time.

Despite the fact that this is the debut of the tournament, the cricket fans in the region are certainly excited for it. The two sides are evenly matched, which makes this contest quite an intriguing one.

Islamabad United Squad: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Shane Watson, Andre Russell, Samuel Badree, Mohammad Irfan, Brad Haddin, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Sami, Khalid Latif, Babar Azam, Imran Khalid, Kamran Ghulam, Umar Amin, Sam Billings, Ruman Raees, Amad Butt, Ashar Zaidi, Saeed Ajmal, Hussain Talat, Umar Siddiq

Quetta Gladiators Squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Kevin Pietersen, Ahmed Shehzad, Anwar Ali, Jason Holder, Luke Wright, Zulfiqar Babar, Umar Gul, Elton Chigumbura, Bilal Asif, Asad Shafiq, Mohammad Nawaz, Saad Nasim, Mohammad Nabi, Akbar ur Rehman, Bismillah Khan, Kumar Sangakkara, Aizaz Cheema, Ramiz Raja jnr

On one hand, we have the team from Islamabad, who have big names such as Wasim Akram and Dean Jones in their management, but on the other, Quetta Gladiators even the field brilliant by having Ian Pont and Julien Fountain in their coaching team.

However, the choice of the two teams for their overseas players is far more interesting. Quetta have got themselves a brilliant line-up which includes the veteran Brit Kevin Pietersen, alongside with the heavily experienced Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara, who won the 2014 ICC World T20. The addition of these two players in the team is certainly a huge boost for the lads.

As for Islamabad United, they will be led by the current test captain of the Pakistan national cricket team Misbah-ul-Haq, who will be aided by the Australian legend Brad Haddin, who most recently won the 2015 ICC World Cup. His compatriot Shane Watson too will be playing for the team, who is undoubtedly one of the most experienced in the format.

However, when it comes to bowling, it is Quetta Gladiators who have got the upper hand here. With Umar Gul leading the pack, along with the Sri Lankan Thisara Perera and the Brit Jade Dernbach, they have got a lethal bowling attack.

This match is certainly going to be an intriguing one, but the odds certainly appear to be in the favor of Quetta Gladiators.

    Islamabad looks a better side, they have a better chance to win the match

    I’m very excited to see the quality marketing campaign they have set up for the first season of the league. I apreciate the fact that PCB has not copied anything from the Indial Premier League and have gone for the NFL styled draft system. The overall presentation of the league is very cool. As for this game, go Quetta!
    I want either Gladiators or Zalmi to win the inaugural season of the PSL.
