Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KRK Team News

Mohammad Ilyas was selected last time out as the Kings looked to fixt their bowling woes but he was expensive too. The big question mark hanging over the Kings continues to be their bowling.

KRK Key Players

  • Babar Azam: A rare failure in the last match after scores of 62 and 90* in the previous two, which underlined his supreme T20 talent.
  • Mohammad Nabi: Hammered a 35-ball 57 in the middle order and then proved to be the most economical bowler too.
  • Sharjeel Khan: Continued his own fine form with the bat, hitting 64 from 39 balls, to follow up scores of 105 and 27 in the two previous matches.

KRK Team Form

Karachi have won twice and lost twice so far. A comfortable victory against Quetta Gladiators was followed by an inability to defend their Sharjeel Khan-inspired 196/3 against Islamabad United in their first two games. Then, after Babar Azam hit 90* in a successful chase of 196 to beat Multan Sultans by seven wickets, they then could not defend 186/9 as they lost by six wickets to Lahore Qalandars last time out.

Karachi Kings Predicted Playing 11

Peshawar Zalmi Team News & Playing 11

PSZ Team News

Peshawar Zalmi made just once change last time out and, after his wicket, Umaid Asif could stay in the team ahead of Mohammad Irfan. They are otherwise likely to stick once more with their winning team in PSL 2021.

PSZ Key Players

  • Shoaib Malik: Tidy with the bat, nothing more, but his contributions of 26, 11*, 34 and 29 have each played their part. He steadied the ship last time out.
  • Saqib Mahmood: His 3-12 from 13 balls last time out may have been overshadowed by Wahab Riaz’s brilliance but the Englishman still has ten wickets in four games now.
  • Haider Ali: Finding great form with the bat, hammering 24* against Multan Sultans, hitting a half-century against Quetta Gladiators and then scoring 36 from 18 balls last time out.

PSZ Team Form

Peshawar Zalmi has won their last three matches. Tom Kohler-Cadmore led them to 197/4 in a six-wicket win against Multan Sultans, while it was Haider Ali who hit a half-century as they reached 202/7 to beat Quetta Gladiators next up. Last time out, however, it was the bowlers who shone. Wahab Riaz took 4-17 and in-form Saqib Mahmood 3-12 as they carted Islamabad United for 118, before Kohler-Cadmore again top-scored in a successful chase.

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi Top Team Batsmen

Babar Azam is favourite to be Karachi Kings’ top team batsman, though Sharjeel Khan has claimed that honour twice and is a surprisingly high price. For Peshawar Zalmi, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Haider Ali are the form men to watch, but Imam-ul-Haq is among the favourites to be their top team batsman.

Babar Azam is favourite to be Karachi Kings’ top team batsman because of his excellent T20 record. He was in fine form until his rare failure last time out. Sharjeel Khan deserves to be priced lower given he has been Karachi’s top team batsman twice in four games so far. He could prove a good bet.

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi Top Team Bowlers

Mohammad Amir is favourite to be Karachi Kings’ top team bowler and he has done the business in this fixture before. Wahab Riaz is favourite to be Peshawar Zalmi’s top team bowler with Betway but Bet365 have backed Saqib Mahmood’s consistency instead.

Mohammad Amir is Karachi Kings’ most revered paceman and is favourite, but Mohammad Nabi has showed some consistent form too. If the latter adds wickets to his economic bowling, he will be a very good price. Saqib Mahmood’s price with Betway – especially compared to what Bet365 are offering – is particularly good. He has ten wickets so far and, despite Wahab Riaz’s performance last time out – is the more consistent when it comes to being Peshawar Zalmi’s top team bowler.

KRK vs PSZ Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Joe Clarke has more than double the points Kamran Akmal has scored so far, and the Englishman is 0.5 credits cheaper too. He is definitely the top choice behind the stumps.

  • Batsmen

    Babar Azam is 10.5 credits and his reputation goes before him. He will bounce back from his rare failure last time out. Sharjeel Khan is also in fine form alongside him at the top of the order and he is superb value at 8.5 credits. Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Haider Ali have found form for Peshawar Zalmi, meanwhile, and they took are good value at 8.5 and nine credits respectively.

  • All rounder

    Shoaib Malik is finding some form with the bat, with useful contributions starting to mount up. It seems only a matter of time before he goes bigger so he is worth gambling on at 9.5 credits. Mohammad Nabi hit a half-century and has bowled tidily so far and he looks the other top all-rounder choice though there are plenty to choose from.

  • Bowlers

    Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz are both nine credits. Amir has not quite struck top form, but the latter led Peshawar Zalmi to victory with his four pegs last time out. Saqib Mahmood has been more consistent with the ball, however, and looks the best pick at just 8.5 credits. The prices give a pretty free choice for the final bowler, though cost is not an issue anyway given eight-credit Arshad Iqbal has passed the 200-point milestone already.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Consistency is king and, while Babar Azam’s excellent batting makes him a tempting choice for captain – even over team-mate Sharjeel Khan – it is Saqib Mahmood’s wickets that lead the way in the choice for captain. Sharjeel has found form, but Babar Azam is never far from another big innings and he makes the cut for vice-captain.

KRK vs PSZ Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam (vc), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Haider Ali

  • All Rounder:Mohammad Nabi, Shoaib Malik

  • Wicket Keeper:Joe Clarke

  • Bowler:Mohammad Amir, Arshad Iqbal, Saqib Mahmood (c), Wahab Riaz
