Babar Azam's Karachi Kings started the season on a losing note, suffering a seven-wicket defeat against defending champions Multan Sultans at the same venue on Thursday. Put into bat, the 2020 champions could manage only 124/5 despite a good start from openers Sharjeel Khan and skipper Azam, which eventually proved too little against Mohammad Rizwan's Sultans.
Quetta Gladiators, the 2019 champions, will hope to get a strong start to the season after finishing sixth in the six-team league last season. They were the runners-up in the first two seasons. In Sarfaraz Ahmed, they have a capable leader and the side boasts of experienced players like Sohail Tanvir, James Faulkner, Umar Akmal, etc.
This will be their 13th meeting. Quetta Gladiators lead the head-to-head record 7-5, but Karachi Kings won the last two meetings.
