Quetta win the toss, they opt to field.
Sarfraz: "The conditions are such, the pitch has been covered for a while. Hope to chase their target down. We have tried to negate the players we've lost. Lots of changes. Thisara is in, Mahmudullah and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are in. So is Asad Shafiq. Great crowd."
Sammy: "Ideally with the weather, we would've loved to bowl. But today's an opportunity to play in front of a lovely crowd. The pitch looks good, earlier it was covered, but our openers will have a look first. Shall assess after that. Feeling the love here. Tamim is in, and Fletcher replaces Wessels."
The Quetta team break away from their last-minute warm ups and huddle up with their captain Sarfraz Ahmed. And out they go. Gaddafi stadium has rolled out the red-carpet for the batsman, seducing them with a 60 m boundary. Tamim Iqbal and Kamran Akmal would love that. Right. Time for a little bit of cricket in front of a packed ground. Lahore is ready. So is left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz, starting around the wicket with a slip in place
