Quetta Gladiators will take on Lahore Qalandars in the 15th match of the Pakistan Super League 2022. The QUE vs LAH battle will be played at the National Stadium, Karachi on Monday 7th February Gladiators just suffered a tough defeat against Islamabad United and they have a lot to prove as the tournament nears its conclusion. The absence of Mohammad Hasnain was especially noticeable in the previous game, and the other bowlers are in need of stepping up.
Meanwhile, the Lahore Qalandars are on a winning streak in their last three games and a win here can take them to the second position in the points table. They have played some outstanding cricket in both the departments and have lost just one game to table-toppers Multan Sultans so far in the tournament. Shaheen Afridi has displayed great leadership qualities already in his early captaincy experiences and is looking ready for the role in Pakistan’s future as well.
