We are coming closer to the stage where every game is a do or die encounter. This is particularly true for Quetta Gladiators who have four points in eight games and cannot afford a slip-up. Multan Sultans too are not that comfortably placed either with six points in seven games. A win for Quetta in this game will see all the bottom three teams locked at equal points.

Based on the current form, it is tough to look past Mohammed Rizwan as a choice for the captain. He is the second-highest run-scorer in the season after Babar Azam but has played a game less. Being keeper, he is bound to provide more points as well.
