KRK vs LHQ Betting Tips

  • Shoaib Malik once again led a depleted batting lineup as he knocked 71 runs in just 49 balls to give his side a chance of winning in the second innings. With the ball, captain Imad Wasim secured all the limelight as he took 3 wickets in his quota of 4 overs while conceding only 16 runs. He also bowled a maiden over.
  • Fakhar Zaman not only opened the batting innings for Lahore Qalandars but even smashed a team-high 66 runs off just 42 balls. The experienced Shaheeh Afridi was the pick of their bowlers as he took a wicket in his quota of 4 overs and even gave away just 27 runs.
  • Given the form Fakhar Zaman has been in, we predict him to score yet another half-century, this time at the expense of Karachi Kings in Match 8.

Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KAR Team News

This unit has tried all possible combinations to register a win yet has failed miserably. Moreover, Mir Hamza’s injury has broken the hearts of many cricket fanatics in Karachi as he surely won’t be a part of Match 8. As a result of which, James Fuller could find himself back in the starting XI.

KAR Key Players

  • Shoaib Malik- Given that Malik is showcasing just how he is aging like fine wine, the 41-year-old former Pakistani International will once again need to be at his best if the Kings want to register their first win of the PSL 2023 edition.
  • Imad Wasim- The captain of the Karachi Kings will look to once again produce the same kind of performance at Match 6 if his team needs to register their first win against their name.
  • Haider Ali- He has already scored big numbers in this tournament yet the fact that his failure to play well has often put Kings under more pressure, Ali’s performance will be crucial with the bat.

KAR Team Form

Kings are placed last in the point table after they have failed to register wins in any of their games in the tournament so far.

Lahore Qalandars Team News & Playing 11

LAH Team News

Given that there are no injuries in the camp so far and this team has only played once in the competition so far, they will most likely head into Match 8 with the same starting XI as what they had in Match 1. That means Sam Billings and Rashid Khan will once again not be a part of the playing XI.

LAH Key Players

  • Fakhar Zaman- Given the nature of the upcoming venue, Zaman will be licking his fingers to once again counter-attack the opposition’s bowling unit from ball 1.
  • Zaman Khan- Having seen that this right-arm pacer can prove to be a clutch bowler in the latter overs, his variations can fetch him wickets at the National Stadium of Karachi.
  • Shai Hope- The West Indies International star got off to a good start of 19 runs in Match 1 yet failed to convert it into a big total. However, in match 8, he will be looking to rectify his mistakes.

LAH Team Form

The defending champions managed to outpace one of the most luxurious and dangerous batting lineups in the inaugural game. As a result of which, they emerged victorious in their only match in this competition.

Who will win Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars T20 Match?

The National Stadium of Karachi has been a battle of the batsmen in both lineups. Citing this, the Qalandars do hold an advantage courtesy of the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Shai Hope, and Liam Dawson all present on their side.

KAR vs LAH Top Team Batsmen

Sharjeel Khan, Haider Ali, and the experienced Shoaib Malik are your obvious batting picks from the Karachi Kings lineup. On one hand, where Haider Ali and Shoaib Malik have shown their true game acumen by scoring runs in particular innings, Sharjeel Khan has failed to make use of the good starts that he has got so far in the competition.

On the other hand, Fakhar Zaman, Shai Hope, and Tahir Baig are your suggested batting picks from the Lahore Qalandars. While Zaman scored a half-century for the defending champions against Multan Sultans, Baig got off to an incredible start by scoring 32 off 26 balls but once again failed to make it count.

🏆 Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars Prediction

The Lahore Qalandars would be returning to the battlefield after taking a long week off from game action. Whereas the Kings are heading into this contest on a back-to-back gameday action, wherein they have only gone on to drop their 3rd game as well. Being low on morale and even spirit, we predict the Qalandars to register a dominant win over the Kings on Sunday.
