Former champions Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators will go head to head in the fourth match of the PSL 2022 on Saturday, 29 January. The match, scheduled at Karachi’s National Stadium, will start at 7:30 pm PST.
Both Karachi and Quetta will be determined to overcome disappointing losses in their opening encounters and put in a much-improved display as they face off against each other in their second match of the campaign. Karachi got off to a sluggish start in PSL 2022 as they convincingly lost against Multan Sultans.
Babar’s troops will be looking to turn around their fortunes and give the home crowd something to cheer about. Kings will be boosted by the return of former captain Imad Wasim who has fully recovered from COVID-19 and is expected to start the match while experienced pacer, Mohammad Amir is also in his final stages of recovery and might get the go-ahead by the doctors to feature in the match.
Gladiators, on the other hand, were impressive in their first outing but were unable to defend a good total as they agonizingly lost to Peshawar Zalmi on Friday night. Exceptional performances by young players Will Smeed, Ahsan Ali, and Naseem Shah will give them confidence ahead of the crucial tie against the Kings. Quetta will be hoping that their experienced players, Iftikhar Ahmed, Sohail Tanvir, and James Faulkner can put in a much-improved display as compared to their previous performance.
