The first of the two matches scheduled on Sunday is Karachi Kings vs Quetta Gladiators at National Stadium Karachi. The home side will look to stretch their winning run to two matches, whereas Quetta will hope to get back on the winning track after a humiliating defeat at the hands of Peshawar Zalmi on Saturday.
There will be plenty of big stars in action today, including Babar Azam, Mohammad Amir, Chris Jordan, Jason Roy, Shane Watson and hopefully Naseem Shah. It remains to be seen whether the teenage pacer has been cleared by PCB to play for Quetta Gladiators or not.

Players to Lookout For
Imad Wasim has time and again proved to be a handy all-rounder. He promoted himself up the order in the first match and scored a quick-fire fifty, however, he needs to trust his bowling abilities more considering he had two overs still left at the end of innings.
Jason Roy scored a brilliant half-century in the second match, however, he didn’t get any support from the other batsmen. He was slightly slow if you go by his standards as he scored at a strike rate of 128.07, which he needs to improve in the coming games.
