Lahore Qalandar team was super energized and eager to start their match against Quetta Gladiators under captaincy of their new passionate captain Brendon McCullum. Furthermore, their super players Yasir Shah and Sunil Narine also returned to their team and Sohail Tanvir has also joined Qalandars this time as last time he was the part of Karachi Kings team. Addition of all these super players increased the chances of winning PSL league for Qalandars. Unlike Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators continued PSL 2017 with most of their old players even with their unchanged captain Sarfraz Ahmad.
