LAH Vs QUE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Last placed sides take on each other in a bid to revive their floundering campaigns.
Placed in the deaths of the points tally of PSL 2020, when Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators play each other today, a win takes paramount importance for either side. Anything short of the two points could be calamitous for either side, all but wrapping up their ambitions of making it into the ensuing round this season.
For last placed Qalandars in particular, this is a fixture which brings immense ramifications for them. With a solitary win in five clashes, the last placed side is staring at a colossal deficit, one it needs to start erasing at the earliest plausible if it has any chance of breathing fresh life into a harrowing campaign.
Elsewhere, the Gladiators haven’t fared off any better with the side handed over a 40 run trouncing by Zalmi the last time around. The defeat was their fourth to leave them in 5th spot in the league standings but with the side taking on a way inferior opposition today, it’ll be quietly eyeing a win, one which could see them jump all the way into the upper stages of the points tally.
Dismissed by 71 runs in their previous clash, the Qalandars doled out a performance which was vindictive of their plight this season. We don’t see them overturning their chastening form come today’s tie either with their bowling unit being too tepid and meek, a unit which will be ripped to shreds by the Gladiators.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With today’s encounter set to mauled by incessant rainfall, the team winning the toss is going to want to come out and field first. Rain won’t be a massive determent to strokeplay though with the wicket quick to settle down and allow the batters to pile on the runs on this surface.

- Shane Watson, Azam Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Ben Cutting, Sohail Khan
LAH Vs QUE Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
South African Ben Dunk needed just 15 balls to rake up 25 runs the last time around to show why he’s considered such hot property in the T20 format. The saviours of a dwindling batting unit, the player’s ability to cream the ball in the middle spot makes him a regulation pick for the day.
LAH Vs QUE Dream11 Batsmen
Opener Chris Lynn comes in as well from the side whilst from Quetta Gladiators we’ll be indulging in a daunting partnership. It’s one which is represented by both the side’s openers Shane Watson and Jason who got 45 runs the last time around with the two set to come out and pile the misery on a paper thin bowling unit inside the powerplay overs.
LAH Vs QUE Dream11 All-Rounders
The most heavily indulged in component of our Dream 11 side, we are opting for the two players apiece from either side for this imminent encounter. We begin with our partnership from the Gladiators, one which is constituted of Ben Cutting and Mohammad Nawaz, two players who come equipped with an expansive skill set in both the ambits of the game.
From the Qalandars on the other hand we’ll be opting for a spin partnership for this encounter. Mohammad Hafeez and Samit Patel will be looking to entice batsmen into going for the false shots and induce batsmen into soft dismisals owing to their ability to toss the ball up and give it plenty of air.
LAH Vs QUE Dream11 Bowling Order
After registering four wickets the last time around, we begin with Mohammad Hasnain from the Gladiators for today’s encounter. The bowler ended up wrecking havoc in the opposition’s batting order with his wicket to wicket line and length, one set to reward him today as well.
Sohail Khan is also coming into our side for the day while from Lahore Qalandars, Dilbar Hussain comes in for us given his persistency in sending the ball consistently in the right areas.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Quetta Gladiators: Cutting’s all-round skill set makes him our side’s captain while Jason is the vice-captain.
Lahore Qalandars: Dunk is our captain while Lynn is the vice-captain.
