Peshawar Zalmi finished 3rd on the points table of PSL2021. They have won 5 out of their 10 games. Their tournament was a decent one. Despite losing half of their games, they had a good net run rate. Because they won plenty of their games by a big margin and lost some games closely.
Karachi Kings too have won 5 of their 10 games. They were rather inconsistent in this tournament. They lost couple of games by a huge margin and hence their net run rate was -0.115. Their qualifying chances depended on Lahore Qalandars’ win which eventually did not happen. They won their last group stage game against Quetta Gladiators and so qualified for the play offs.
BAbar Azam has been the highest run scorer in the PSL 2021. Our fantasy picks select him as the foremost player of the team. He scores slowly in the beginning but can escalate very easily. The previous match saw him getting plumb to Wahab Riaz’s ball. He would be pumped up to take his revenge.
Sharjeel Khan has been equally good for Karachi Kings. He has one century to his name and is the 4th highest run scorer of the PSL2021. The list of highest six hitters sees Sharjeel Khan on top of it. He should be 1 from your 11 fantasy picks
Kamran Akmal might not be up their on the list of highest run scorers. But his contribution for the team has been amazing. He performs well under pressure as well and will play a crucial role in the eliminator.
The veteran Pakistan all rounder has been the biggest asset for Peshawar Zalmi. He can take games deep and play match winning knocks.
This afghan player is a dynamite. Najibullah stonks the ball out of the ground easily. He played a terrific knock against Islamabad United. Although his knock went in vain, it was an important one.
Imad Wasim, the captain of Karachi Kings should be one of your fantasy picks for the game. His all round abilities provide balance to the team. The last knock of his against Quetta Gladiators won Karachi the game.
Sherfane Rutherford has been vital to Peshawar Zalmi’s team combination. He is expected to perform today and be the trump card.
Peshawar’s skipper rattled Karachi Kings the last time these teams met. He scalped Babar Azam for a golden duck and that was the turning point of the match. He is in a terrific form.
Noor Ahmed has been decent for Karachi Kings. Bowlers like him always surprise in knockout games. It’s the young guns who win you games.
