Quetta Gladiators are 96-1 after 10 overs against Peshawar Zalmi in the first qualifier of the Pakistan Super League 2019 at National Stadium Karachi.
After Zalmi won the toss and opted to field first, they dealt an early blow to the Gladiators, dismissing their in-form opener Ahmed Shehzad (1 off 4 balls) in just the 2nd over.
Thankfully, the two-time finalists are stacked in in-form-openers department. With Shehzad gone, Shane Watson took charge, hitting Peshawar Zalmi bowlers almost at will. Him and Ahsan Ali took the score to 53-1 after 5 overs and 96-1 after 10.
