Karachi Kings vs Quetta Gladiators – Team News
Several players have opted to leave the tournament early amid the spread of the coronavirus. The Kings have lost England batsman Alex Hales, while the Gladiators have seen fellow Englishmen Jason Roy and Tymal Mills go.
More onus is left on the international stars remaining behind to perform. Cameron Delport and Chris Jordan will want to put in big showings with the bat and ball, respectively, though Karachi might rest these players in what is effectively a dead rubber. That said, they don’t want to lose momentum ahead of the semi-final.
Azam Khan and Mohammad Nawaz will be crucial to the Gladiators’ efforts with the bat. With the ball, they have the prolific Mohammad Hasnain, who has taken 14 wickets in the 2020 PSL and forced himself into the frame ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year.
