Peshawar Zalmi will take on Quetta Gladiators in the 8th PSL 2021 match at the National Stadium in Karachi on 26th February.

The match between the two is scheduled to start at 08:30 PM IST, and it will be aired live on Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD.

Preview: Peshawar Zalmi vs Quetta Gladiators, 8th Match

 Both Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators come into the game after losing their first PSL 2021 matches. Batting first in their previous match against Lahore Qalandars, Peshawar Zalmi posted a decent total of 140 on the board. However, Peshawar’s bowling lineup failed to stop the Qalandars in the second half and lost the game at National Stadium. Peshawar Zalmi’s batting lineup comprises Imam-ul-Haq and Shoaib Malik, with the likes of Wahab Riaz and Saqib Mahmood handling the bowling side.

Quetta Gladiators, in their last game against Karachi Kings, lost the toss and were compelled to bat first. The Gladiators, however, failed to face the fierce bowling attack of Karachi Kings and their entire squad bundled up on just 121 runs. Excluding Chris Gayle’s decent knock of 39 runs off 24 balls, only three players were able to post double-digit scores on the board. With the likes of Sarfaraz Ahmed and Chris Gayle, the Gladiators will be looking to make up for their loss by winning the upcoming game against Peshawar Zalmi.

Weather report

The weather at the national stadium in Karachi is forecasted to be clear on Friday. The temperature will be looming around 25 degrees Celsius during the gameplay.

Average first innings score

The average first innings score at this venue is 137 (last three matches).

Man of the match prediction

Winner prediction

The upcoming game will be the first instance when Peshawar Zalmi will lock horns with Quetta Gladiators in PSL 2021. In their last two games in PSL 2020, Peshawar Zalmi were dominant over the Gladiators in both matches. With a superior batting lineup, both the sides will leave no stones unturned in posting a victory in the upcoming game. But one would back Peshawar Zalmi to win the match at National Stadium.
