Karachi Kings will host Islamabad United in match number 4 of the ongoing Pakistan Super League on Thursday (February 16) at the National Stadium in Karachi. While Kings suffered an agonising 2-run defeat in the opening encounter, United will be playing their first game of the 2023 edition.
Kings' skipper, Imad Wasim, played a brilliant unbeaten knock of 80 and got good support from Shoaib Malik (54) but the side fell short by 2 runs in the chase of 200 against Peshawar Zalmi.
Meanwhile, United will look to start their 2023 campaign with a win. The franchise has a strong squad at their disposal and are favorites in the tournament.
The pitch in Karachi is expected to produce a high-scoring encounter. Fielding first after winning the toss should be the captain's decision.
Sharjeel Khan, Matthew Wade (wk), Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Qasim Akram, Ben Cutting, Imad Wasim (c), Andrew Tye, Imran Tahir, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Amir
Alex Hales, Paul Stirling, Colin Munro, Shadab Khan (C), Sohaib Maqsood, Asif Ali, Azam Khan (wk), Mohammad Wasim Jr, Hasan Ali, Abrar Ahmed, Fazalhaq Farooqi
Although toss might play a crucial role in deciding the winner, Karachi Kings will be slightly favourite at their home ground.
