Hello and welcome to our PES vs QUE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators will play against each other in the 8th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at National Stadium, Karachi.
Zalmi has made a decent start to the tournament as they are currently at the 4th position with one win and one loss and a total of 2 points. In the last match, they performed brilliantly and won the game by six wickets.
The opening pair Imam-ul-Haq and Kamran Akmal, after a disappointing start in the first match, batted well in the last game and gave the team a perfect birth. Imam missed his fifty by just two runs. At No.3, a new batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore batted well and scored a half-century.
Sherfane Rutherford has been promoted up the order, and he, along with Shoaib Malik, has performed decently in the middle-order so far in this season. After a disappointing performance in the first match, Haider Ali batted well in the second match and took his team over the finishing line.
After scoring a brilliant fifty in the first match, Ravi Bopara did not play the second match. The bowling department needs to improve a lot and looks very weak among all the other teams. Skipper Wahab Riaz was very expensive and went wicketless in the last match.
Saqib Mahmood has been the consistent wicket-taker for Zalmi and has picked up two wickets in both games. Mujeeb Ur Rahman picked up a wicket in the first match but was expensive and went wicketless in the last game.
Peshawar Zalmi would want to continue their winning momentum by winning their next match against the Gladiators.
Gladiators face a challenging situation in the initial matches and are still searching for their first win. They are currently at the bottom of the points table. In the last game, Gladiators had to face disappointment as they lost the match by 9 wickets.
Opener Tom Banton has appeared to be struggling and got out early in both the matches. The new opener Saim Ayyub also got out early without disturbing the scoreboard much. Chirs Gayle at No.3 has been batting brilliantly and scored a brilliant fifty in the last game.
Skipper Sarfaraz batted well in the last match after changing his batting order. Azam Khan and Mohammad Nawaz have been batting decently, but they need to improve their six-hitting as they are considered the finishers and the well-known all-rounder Ben Cutting.
The bowlers have been struggling a lot to pick up wickets and control the flow of runs. After picking up two wickets in the first match, Mohammad Hasnain went wicketless in the second match, and Shinwari, after a decent performance, was very expensive and went wicketless in the last game. In the previous game, only Zahid Mahmood managed to pick up one wicket.
Quetta Gladiators would be desperate to win this match against the Zalmi and put a break to their streak of losses.
