Sultans clinched a thriller in their last face off with Karachi Kings and will be looking forward to repeat similar performance in the next game.

The surface at National Stadium is a batting paradise and we have already seen some high-scoring games at this venue. The average power-play score at this venue is 174. Team must look forward to chasing the total after winning the toss.
Sultans' skipper Md. Rizwan smashed a brilliant century when the team last faced Karachi Kings and guided his side to 196/2 in 1st innings. Shan Masood too produced a brilliant performance as he scored crucial 51 off 33. In response, Sultans’ bowlers conceded too many runs, but Imad Wasim held the nerve in the last over to defend 22. Meanwhile, Karachi Kings should not lose confidence as they batted brilliantly against Sultans but they need to bowl well in the next fixture.
