The Karachi Kings will be up against the Quetta Gladiators in the 19th match of the third season of the Pakistan Super League, and the match will be played on Thursday. The match will be played in Dubai. The match will begin at 9:00 pm PST (4.00 pm GMT).
The top five teams in the tournament right now are so evenly poised that every game result can push and pull them in different directions. It’s just the Lahore Qalandars who look out of contention for now.
So when the Karachi Kings take on the Quetta Gladiators, a win for either team could have either a new number one team on the points table or a second-placed side. Because currently, the Kings are second on the table with seven points from five games and the top-ranked side is Multan with nine points from seven games.
At the same time, the Quetta Gladiators, who are coming off a sterling win against the Multan Sultans, have six from six and a win will catapult them to eight points, ahead of Karachi.
And the Gladiators have shown why they have the capacity to do just that. In their previous game against the Multan Sultans, at various stages during the encounter, they looked dead and buried.
On what looked like a slow, double-paced pitch, the Multan Sultans seemed to have gotten themselves a score they could well defend given the bowling line-up they had. But chasing that score of 153, Quetta looked to have lost their way when they fell to 118 for six in 17 overs.
Needing 35 from the final three overs with a weak batting line-up to go, Anwar Ali and Mohammad Nawaz got the side close with one six apiece and Hasan Khan followed it up with a six to finish off the game with a ball to spare.
The question now is whether the Gladiators can make it two in two and get to the second spot on the points table or if it would be Karachi’s fourth win. Karachi Kings vs Quetta Gladiators 19th match prediction, betting tips & preview are placed below.
