Quetta Gladiators won the toss and chose to bowl v Islamabad United

Defending champions Quetta Gladiators decided to put Islamabad United in on a surface that appears to favour big runs.

Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed announced Jason Roy, Shane Watson, Ben Cutting and Fawad Ahmed were their four overseas players.

New Islamabad skipper Shadab Khan said the two-time champions would aim to put a target in excess of 180 on the board, promising to keep things simple and keep giving young players a chance. They will line up with Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi Dawid Malan, and Colin Ingram as their overseas players.
