Karachi Kings will get yet another opportunity to keep themselves alive in the league as they will square off with Islamabad United on March 2 at Pindi Club in Rawalpindi. With two wins in seven games, the Kings are reeling at the bottom of the points table while Islamabad United has placed itself well in third position.
The surface is expected to be a great place for the batters. A high-scoring match seems to be on the cards. Fielding first after winning the toss should be the way forward.
Imad Wasim-led Karachi Kings faltered by a huge margin once again while chasing a big total. Despite brilliant bowling from Md. Amir in the 1st innings, the Kings were completely outplayed by West Indian Rovman Powell, who smashed 64 off just 34 deliveries. In response to Zalmi’s 197, Kings' batters could not find the right momentum and eventually fell short by 24 runs.
Meanwhile, Islamabad United is also coming from a defeat as the side was outsmarted by Lahore Qalandars. Tom Curran and Shadab Khan bowled brilliantly in that game but United’s batters failed miserably in the 2nd innings and were bundled out for just 90.
Probable playing XI:
Colin Munro, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rassie van der Dussen, Shadab Khan (c), Azam Khan (wk), Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Tom Curran, Hasan Ali, Zeeshan Zameer, Abrar Ahmed
Matthew Wade, Adam Rossington (wk), Tayyab Tahir, Shoaib Malik, Irfan Khan, Imad Wasim (c), Ben Cutting, Aamer Yamin, Mohammad Amir, Tabraiz Shamsi, Akif Javed
While both the teams lost their previous games and will be hoping to get back to winning ways, Islamabad United has an upper edge over Karachi Kings. As per our prediction, Islamabad United is likely to win the next game.
