PSL 2021: Karachi Kings beat Quetta Gladiators by 7 wickets in opening match
Defending champions Karachi Kings beatformer champions Quetta Gladiators by seven wickets in the opening match of the Pakistan Super League’s sixth edition, at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday.
The Gladiators, after being invited to bat first, lost wickets at regular intervals and could only muster 121 runs — with only four players reaching double-digits — in the face of some terrific seam bowling by the Kings, for whom the young Arshad Iqbal (3-16) proved instrumental.
In response, the Kings’ run chase was never in trouble. Despite losing the early wicket of Sharjeel Khan, they immediately got back on their feet, reaching their target with more than six overs and seven wickets to spare.
