Karachi Kings (KAR) will be hosting Quetta Gladiators (QUE) in the sixth match of the Pakistan Super League 2023 at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday. The Kings, who finished the last season at the bottom of the table, are suffering another poor start this year. They lost the opening clash against Peshawar Zalmi by just two runs while chasing a 200-run target and lost against Islamabad United in the last game by four wickets despite scoring 173 runs while batting first.
