Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars are set to face each other in the 11th match in PSL. Both these teams have played 3 matches and have won 2 out of them. Kings are at second place in the points table and Qalandars in third, Kings are ahead because of the net run rate. Kings won their last match with Babar Azam playing a crucial knock in the chase. Qalandars lost their match but they have nothing to worry about, they look like a settled side.
The pitch at the National Stadium so far has offered a lot for the batsmen and will remain the same in this match as well. We have seen some high-scoring matches up till now and we can expect this to be another high-scoring match.
Everyone by now knows what the team winning the toss would want to do. Obviously, they would bowl first. The only reason that any team will bat first is if they have a completely new strategy and have figured out a way to restrict the opposition from chasing targets.
