Karachi Kings face Islamabad United today at 9:30 PM IST. The last time these teams met, Islamabad united came on top. It was a high scoring game. Batting first, Karachi Kings scored 196 runs, Sharjeel Khan scored PSL 2021’s first and only century. All the fantasy players who picked Sharjeel Khan, cherished that day. Islamabad United chased it down with 5 balls to spare. Alex Hales and the lower middle order of ISlamabad United chipped in some runs which won them the game.
Islamabad United are in a good form and carry confidence with them after pulling off a sensational victory against Lahore Qalandars yesterday. They’ll be looking for their second win on the trot.
Karachi Kings have been rather inconsistent. Apart from Babar Azam, no other batsman has come up yet. Sharjeel Khan had a great time pre postponement. But he hasn’t looked in a good touch post resumption.
Babar is the highest run sorer for Karachi Kings this season. He has totalled 343 runs in 6 matches at an average of whopping 114. Opposition hardly gets him out. Many people says that he is a statpadder but for fantasy cricket players, he is a jackpot.
Sharjeel Khan is the second highest run scorer for Karachi Kings. He totals 204 runs in 6 matches, 105 came from a single innings.
Colin is a really explosive batsman. The Kiwi opener can hit bowlers out of the park pretty easily. He did not fare well against Lahore Qalandars but Quetta got a ton of hitting by him.
Islamabad’s captain. Shadab Khan performed exceptionally against Lahore Qalandars. He picked two wickets at an economy rate of just 3.5.
Asif Ali scpred a brilliant 75 runs, his career best, against Lahore Qalandars and got the player of the match award. He played a really sensible knock down the order.
The veteran Sri Lankan all rounder has a lot of game experience. He had a decent outing against Multan Sultans. 3 overs, 12 runs and 2 wickets by him.
Imad has not been in the spotlight much but he is a bankable player. He can take the game away from the opposition anytime. The Abu Dhabi pitch can assist him if he bowls in his lines.
The Pakistani pace stalwarth has always been amazing. He provides swing upfront and has a ton of yorkers in his weaponry to take out in the death.
Musa has proved to be a big asset for Islamabad United. He went past Lahore’s top order the other day. He had fantastic figures of 3-18-3.
Fahim is a bowling all rounder of great potential. He can pluck wickets and provide runs down the order. He hasn’t unleashed himself much yet but is a dynamite.
Karachi Kings are really satisfied by Qasim Akram’s services. He is a good bowler to bowl in middle overs with. A lot of variations under him.
