- With all-rounders available right through, the United are a better-balanced side between the two, at least on paper
- Quetta Gladiators are a little too over-reliant on Faf du Plessis and Sarfaraz Ahmed to guide their team in the middle-overs
- Islamabad United’s bowling attack is more suited to what the conditions have been like in Karachi

Winner –Islamabad United
It’s all happening in Pakistan Super League. For the tenth time in the row, the team batting second emerged victorious in this edition of PSL. While the tournament is getting better and tighter with every passing day, some predictability is getting into the picture as well. With Islamabad’s loss in the recent match, this belief regarding the importance of toss got even stronger.
SU vs QTG Toss Prediction
Quetta Gladiators are yet to win the toss and have been asked to bat first each time so far. With the toss so key, the Gladiators are due to win this one and will field first if they do.
Karachi’s weather will be much the same as last week – hot and dry with zero chance of rain.
The wicket at Karachi favours batting, though the fast men have had their rewards from a quick surface too.
Islamabad United Predicted Playing 11
Alex Hales, Paul Stirling, Shadab Khan (c), Hussain Talat, Rohail Nazir (wk), Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Lewis Gregory, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim
Quetta Gladiators Predicted Playing 11
Saim Ayub, Cameron Delport, Faf du Plessis, Safaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Azam Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Ben Cutting, Dale Steyn, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain, Zahid Mahmood
