The Karachi Kings haven't had the best of campaigns, and are placed 5th in the points table out of 6 teams. With the results not going the team's way on the field, frustration is understandably creeping in.
As for the match, the Karachi Kings were put to bat first by Quetta Gladiators who had won the toss. The Kings managed to reach a respectable score of 164 runs, with Adam Rossington emerging as the top-scoring batter, courtesy of his brilliant knock of 69 runs off 45 balls.
The target, however, never looked safe when the Gladiators came out to bat. The match did go down the wire but the Gladiators completed a successful run-chase, with just one delivery remaining in the match.
Martin Guptill was the star batter in the run-chase, scoring a 56-ball 86 runs, including nine fours and four sixes.
