The dynamic opening pair of Islamabad, Colin Munro (84) and captain Shadab Khan (54), contributed significantly even though their bowlers gave up a large amount of runs.

They set the tone for a successful chase, which was eventually sealed by lower-order batsmen Faheem Ashraf (23) and Imad Wasim (30).

Conversely, the Gladiators were defeated by 79 runs as a result of their inability to contend with the Sultans. Under Rilee Rossouw’s leadership, neither their bowling nor their batting was able to survive the opposition’s assault.

With the exception of batsman Omair Yousuf (37), and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (0/26), the Gladiators were unable to identify any highlights from the game.

If they want to win this important knockout encounter against Islamabad, they need to turn things around.

As it has suited bowlers thus far, the pitch at Karachi’s National Bank Cricket Stadium is expected to stay that way in Eliminator 1.
