Andre Russell's signing is the biggest boost for Quetta Gladiators.
Updated - Jun 11, 2021 6:32 pm
The last-over blunder against the Lahore Qalandars cost Islamabad United a shot at victory in their previous match, where they lost the match by 5 wickets. One of their main players, Faheem Ashraf is likely to miss this match against the Quetta Gladiators due to injury. Currently, United are at 3rd spot in the standings with 6 points.
Quetta Gladiators are desperate for the win as they are sitting at the bottom of the table with 2 points. The inclusion of star campaigner Andre Russell may change their fortunes in the 2nd leg and even Faf du Plessis’ current form will help them.
