After this house of cards, Quetta was immediately eliminated from the HBL PSL 2024 playoffs and won’t be able to win the tournament. At the same time, Islamabad United advanced to the eliminator 2.

After Islamabad United scored 174-9 gladiators were done and dusted only on 135 losing the game with a 39-run margin.

Jason Roy had a wonderful last season but had the opposite of this season, got out to the first slip of Naseem Shah over. Laurie Evans and Akeal Hosein were mixed up resulting in a runout as Quetta lost half of its team within the powerplay. 

Martin Guptill Experience 

Martin Guptill made a fantastic 2 fifty-run partnership with Agha Salman and Alex Hales, Quetta gladiators came back strongly in the last 4 overs but winning and scoring 175 was not close to them winning.

Clash for Eliminator 2

Islamabad United had a record of keeping 2 out of 2 PSL trophies they are also the champions of the Inaugural season of HBL PSL 2016 following 2018. If they advance to the eliminator 2 vs Peshawar Zalmi there are bright chances for both of the teams as both are capable of performing best to qualify for the final.

The heat of the moment will be Babar Azam and Imad Wasim as fans want thrillers and fights within the game, so when these two face each other there will be chants of Babar, Babar, Imad, and Imad. That moment will be to watch and will be the best moment to watch at PSL 9.
