The 4th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 will be played between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators on 22nd February at National Stadium in Karachi.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time (7:30 PM IST) and it will be streamed live on Sony Sports Network.
Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators will go one-on-one against each other in the 4th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 on Monday. Lahore Qalandars had a good start, as they defeated Peshawar Zalmi by 4 wickets and got 2 important points on the table. A lot of credit has to be given to their bowlers for restricting the batsmen for a below-par score. Their team looks perfectly balanced with enough quality players in every department. They would like to keep the same momentum going for the rest of the series.
Meanwhile, one-time champions Quetta Gladiators were thrashed terribly by the defending champions Karachi Kings in the tournament opener. Apart from Chris Gayle, none of the other batsmen got going. Their other overseas stars in Tom Banton, Ben Cutting and Qais Ahmed will have to step up if they were to find success in their conpective. They have lost 3 consecutive matches against Lahore Qalandars and would want to break the losing streak against them on Monday.

LAH vs QUE Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
Fakhar Zaman is an aggressive batsman who opens the batting for Lahore Qalandars. He got start that he wanted, but was dismissed for 15 runs. His experience makes him a good pick.
Veteran cricketer Mohammad Hafeez is another experienced campaigner in the Lahore Qalandars line-up. He remained not out on 33 runs from 26 balls and ensured that his side crossed the finishing mark.
Shaheen Afridi was impeccable against Peshawar Zalmi picking up the important wickets of Imam-ul-Haq, Ravi Bopara and Sherfane Rutherford. He conceded just 14 runs in his full quota of 4 overs.
Universe Boss Chris Gayle made his intentions clear in the first match of the tournament against Karachi Kings, scoring 39 runs from 24 balls including 4 fours and 2 sixes. He would like to add on many more such innings in his short stay.
Tom Banton is a good young overseas player who has got a variety of shots in his arc. Though he was dismissed very early in the first match of the tournament, he can bounce back in the second game. In 9 T20Is he has scored 205 runs at an average of 22.77 with a strike rate of 143.35.
