Today the first match is playing between Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings at the National Stadium and Karachi Kings won the toss and choose to bat first.

Karachi Kings lose nine wickets. Five overs in, it has mostly been the Babar Azam show. The Karachi opener hit a slew of beautiful shots, but then played onto his stumps to give Quetta their first wicket.

With an epic start to the tournament, the Imad Wasim-led Kings defeated Peshawar Zalmi by 10 runs in a seat-edge thriller on Friday, with Zalmi coming close to chasing the 200 plus target.

On the other hand, Quetta started their PSL campaign with a three-wicket victory against Islamabad United in the opening fixture of the tournament. However, they lost their second game to Peshawar after a blistering 50 ball century by Kamran Akmal led Zalmi to a six-wicket win.

Both the Kings and Gladiators now have two points each.
