Bringing cricket back to Pakistan has been a long time desire of every Pakistan cricket fan and the Pakistan Super League has successfully done the same. The tickets have sold at an alarming rate which clearly shows the desire in the Pakistani fans to witness the beautiful game of cricket.

Looking at the line ups of both the teams one can come to a conclusion that Peshawar would have a slight edge over the Quetta Gladiators as far as the foreign players are concerned.
