Today will be a somewhat cooler night than yesterday with temperatures expected to be around 28 to 17 degrees with a humidity ratio of 40 to 58%. Due to high humidity temperatures seems to be in the high 30s which is why the dew factor plays a big role in Karachi.
Generally, pitches in National Stadium, Karachi are flat which batters enjoy imposing big totals but because matches are being played here on a consistent basis so pitches are getting used up which is making things difficult for batters in the powerplay with the ball keeping low and some seam movement in the early overs. Spinners in the middle overs are also becoming more and more difficult if a batter is new on the crease. The average 1st innings score is expected to be around 155 to 170 runs which can be challenging if the bowling team knows how to cope with the dew factor.
QG vs LQ Probable Playing XIs
The good thing for Quetta will be that last night Sarfaraz & Iftikhar did score some important runs and are back in form but the openers have to make sure they provide a good enough start and go big to make sure they impose a big total on board which they can defend in case they are asked to bat 1st again.
Lahore lost the last game poorly which they need to fix in this game. The good news for LQ is their Champion bowler Rashid Khan has joined the squad and is available for selection for today’s game. Rashid will further strengthen the bowling unit along with his ability with the bat to play as a floater in the death overs.
Quetta Gladiators: Jason Roy, Martin Guptill, Abdul Bangalzai, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Umar Akmal, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Odean Smith, Qais Ahmad, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain
Lahore Qalandars: Fakhar Zaman, Mirza Tahir Baig, Shai Hope (wk), Kamran Ghulam, Sikandar Raza, Hussain Talat, David Wiese, Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi (c), Zaman Khan
QG vs LQ Fantasy Playing XI
Quetta again has been hit by a big injury issue and this time their platinum pick Wanindu Hasaranga is now confirmed to miss out on the whole tournament while Liam Dawson who played for Lahore in the last few games has also been injured due to an ankle injury and will no longer take any part in the remaining games.
Lahore has an edge with quality pacers available like Shaheen, Zaman & Haris and now with the inclusion of Rashid Khan their spin department also looks very threatening. Quetta would be hoping they win the toss and bowl 1st so the dew factor can somewhat make things easy for them to face the best possible bowling lineup in the PSL.
Below is the best fantasy XI team for QG vs LQ match 10 of PSL 2023.
Fantasy XI: Shai Hope (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Tahir Baig, Martin Guptill, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Odean Smith, Rashid Khan (vc), Shaheen Shah Afridi (c), Mohammad Hasnain
Shaheen Shah Afridi is our captain for the fantasy XI while Rashid Khan is our preferred choice for vice-captain mainly because of the impact he offers in the bowling along with his brilliant slogging ability in the death overs. Both these players can win you the maximum points through their fantastic playing ability.
