Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KRK Team News

Karachi Kings stuck with an unchanged team last time out and were rewarded with a much-needed return to winning ways. There will still be concerns about their bowlers, but the Kings could stick with the same XI once more.

KRK Key Players

  • Babar Azam: Scored 62 and 90* in his last two matches of PSL 2021, outlining why he is revered as one of the world’s finest T20 batsmen.
  • Imad Wasim: Took a wicket in the first over of each of the first two matches, and followed that up with figures of 1-22 from his four overs last time out.
  • Sharjeel Khan: After smashing 105 against Islamabad United, the opener hit 27 from 14 balls in a 56-run opening partnership last time out.

KRK Team Form

Karachi Kings have won twice, either side of a defeat to Islamabad United. Their bowlers shone against Quetta Gladiators but struggled against Islamabad United. After failing to defend 196/3 against the latter, they then conceded 195/6 against Multan Sultans last time out too, but this time their batsmen got them out of jail – Babar Azam smashing 90* from 60 balls in a seven-wicket win.

Lahore Qalandars Team News & Playing 11

LHQ Team News

Joe Denly took the available overseas slot with Rashid Khan having now left for international duty. Lahore lost last time out, but they may stick with what was otherwise the same team that has been in good form so far.

LHQ Key Players

  • Shaheen Afridi: Starred with the ball in the first game and his figures of 2-29 last time out were the pick of the Qalandars’ bowling.
  • Mohammad Hafeez: The veteran is in fine form with the bat, scoring 33* and 73* in the two wins, before smashing 60 last time out.
  • Fakhar Zaman: Inconsistent at the top of the order, but the 82* he scored against Quetta Gladiators proved what he can offer when he hits top form.

LHQ Team Form

Lahore Qalandars started with back-to-back wins, scoring 143/6 to beat Peshawar Zalmi by four wickets first up before Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez batted them to another successful chase when they faced Quetta Gladiators. After being asked to bat first last time, however, another Hafeez half-century was the lone highlight in a total of 157/6 on their way to a seven-wicket defeat to Multan Sultans.

Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars Top Team Batsmen

Babar Azam is favourite to be Karachi Kings’ top team batsman with Betway and Bet365 after his excellent knock last time out. Opener Fakhar Zaman and in-form Mohammad Hafeez are favourites for Lahore Qalandars.

Babar Azam has hit back-to-back half-centuries, going big to smash 90* last time out, and his consistently excellent batting form in T20 cricket makes him big favourite to be Karachi Kings’ top team batsman – despite Sharjeel Khan’s recent century.

For Lahore, it is a lot closer. Fakhar Zaman top-scored in their most recent win, but Mohammad Hafeez is in excellent form and has been their top team batsman on the other two occasions. The latter could be the best bet.

Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars Top Team Bowlers

Mohammad Amir is favourite to be Karachi’s top team bowler, while his fellow left-arm paceman, in-form Shaheen Afridi, is comfortable favourite to be Lahore Qalandars’ top team bowler.

Afridi’s excellent form last time out – for the second time in three games – makes him an excellent choice to be Lahore Qalandars’ top team bowler. Mohammad Amir is favourite for Karachi Kings, and certainly among their top bowlers, but Arshad Iqbal is capable of wickets too and similarly priced as a result.

KRK vs LHQ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    After his batting first up, and his potential for explosive innings up the order, Joe Clarke looks the best choice of the wicket-keepers. He is above Ben Dunk in terms of prominence in his team’s batting order and yet the same price.

  • Batsmen

    Babar Azam is 10.5 credits but an obvious pick. He is in fine form, fully befitting his T20 batting reputation. Fakhar Zaman is more inconsistent but he has already proved what he is capable of on his day, while Sharjeel Khan’s recent century and general good big-hitting form makes him another to select.

  • All rounder

    Mohammad Hafeez is ten credits but he is in fine form with the bat and well worth picking even if he does not bowl. Mohammad Nabi and Imad Wasim will be the more prominent – the latter in particular, who now has three wickets from three games.

  • Bowlers

    Rashid Khan has left the tournament, so Shaheen Afridi is now comfortably the top bowling option – though he would have been anyway given his form. Mohammad Amir is capable of similar and worth selection at nine credits, leaving 16.5 credits and the need to pick at least one from Lahore. Haris Rauf fits the latter point at 8.5 credits, while Arshad Iqbal’s 198 points at eight credits shows his value to round off the team.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Babar Azam starred with the bat last time out and his fine form makes him well worth backing. Mohammad Hafeez is another in good batting form but Shaheen Afridi’s bowling could tip things towards the paceman.

KRK vs LHQ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman

  • All Rounder:Mohammad Nabi, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez

  • Wicket Keeper:Joe Clarke

  • Bowler:Mohammad Amir, Arshad Iqbal, Shaheen Afridi (vc), Haris Rauf
