If the Karachi-Lahore encounter in the ongoing Pakistan Super League last night was not enough entertainment, then today you will be able to see two table leaders battle it out in Sharjah.

Sarfraz Ahmed-led Quetta Gladiators take on Darren Sammy-led Peshawar Zalmi in the ninth match of the tournament.

Quetta have two wins in their kitty from the first three matches (four points) with the only loss coming against defending champions Islamabad United.

Meanwhile, Peshawar are also on four points but have managed a better net run-rate to find themselves on the top with four points.

Today’s first fixture will decide who will dominate the PSL points table.
