PSL 2018, 2nd match: Karachi Kings beat Quetta by 19 runs
DUBAI -   Karachi Kings thrashed Quetta Gladiators by 19-run in the  second match of PSL 2018 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium here on Friday.

Karachi successfully defended their target of 150, restricting Quetta to 130-9 to claim a 19-run victory in their season opener.

Batting first, King's Colin Ingram scored (41) and Khurram Manzoor (35). For Gladiators, Shane Watson claimed three wickets while Jofra Archer and Anwar Ali took two wickets each.

Earlier, Karachi Kings captain Imad Wasim won the toss and elected to bat in their first match of the event.

Today’s second match will be played between Lahore Qalandars and the winners of the inaugural match Multan Sultans at 9-00 pm at the same venue.

Multan Sultans, who are participating for the first time in the PSL, made an upset, defeating defending champions Peshawar Zalmi by seven wickets in the opening match played Thursday night in Dubai.

Shane Watson and Asad Shafiq opened the innings for the two-time PSL finalists but the Gladiators lost Watson early following a farcical mix-up.

Imad Wasim, the Kings captain has said that this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) have revamped their lineup, the trade-in of Shahid Afridi from Peshawar Zalmi being the biggest boost to their squad.

Another boost to the Kings is England captain Eoin Morgan, who was drafted in from Zalmi as well.

On the other hand, Sarfraz Ahmed’s Gladiators, made it to the finals in both the previous editions, facing a heartbreak each time as the trophy continued to elude them.

This time, Gladiators’ arsenal is stronger than ever: Jason Roy and Shane Watson, who has been traded in from Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United, respectively, bring immense depth to an already consistent side.

Among the youngsters, Afghanistan’s spin sensation Rashid Khan, Pakistan U-19 captain Hassan Khan and fast-rising speedster Jofra Archer bring additional strength to the team.

The 2nd match of the PSL 2018 started at 4:30pm (PST).
