PSL 6: KK vs QG Match Preview, Match Prediction, Predicted Playing XI
Kings did not have a sound start in the second phase of the HBL PSL 6, however, the last triumph they conceded versus Qalandars have furnished a bit of hope for them to be in the playoffs. Kings are currently fifth on the PSL 6 points table and are in huge combat with Qalandars after Sultans stole tonight’s show with a wide margin against Qalandars, to be in the playoffs. Notably, LQ vs MS showcase has dragged Rizwan and co straight to the playoffs.
Gladiators are neither the exceptional ones this season. Unfortunately, they are already out of the tournament hence, losing or winning does not make sense for Sarfaraz and co. However, they may consider the KK vs QG match for their dignity.
