KRK vs PSZ Betting Tips

  • Karachi Kings will be led by veteran middle-order batsman Shoaib Malik in their inaugural game against Zalmi. However, captain Imad Wasim has scored 141 runs in 9 games for the Kings. Mir Hamza, on the other hand, has picked up 8 wickets for the side in his last 4 games, and we expect him to be the leading wicket-taker for KK in this game.
  • Newly assigned captain Babar Azam will be leading the batting order for Peshawar Zalmi. Mohammad Haris has knocked 166 runs in his last 5 games for the Zalmi-unit, at an average of 33 runs per innings. Wahab Riaz has picked 9 wickets in his last 10 games and will be expected to take at least 1 wicket in Match 2 of PSL 2023.
  • Given the wealth of experience Babar Azam has in the shorter format, we make a bold prediction of him knocking a half-century in this encounter.

Who will win Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi T20 Match?

Since spinners can play a crucial role in deciding the outcome of the game, we prefer Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Usman Qadir to have a larger impact on the outcome. Citing this, we predict PZ To edge over KK in Match 2 of PSL 2023.

KAR vs PES Top Team Batsmen

Matthew Wade, Sharjeel Khan, and Shoaib Malik are the best picks from the Karachi Kings unit. Not only do Wade and Sharjeel Khan have the strength to stabilize the innings for this team but their attacking prowess can even help KK get off to a cruising start. On the other hand, Shoaib Malik is coming to PSL 2023 on the backs of an impressive string of performances in BPL 2023.

From Peshawar Zalmi, we suggest you pick Babar Azam, Mohammad Haris, and Tom Kohler Cadmore from the abetting order. Since the respective pitch is good for batsmen, both Azam and Haris will be itching to get off to a good start. Whereas Tom Kohler has been in fine knick and will be expected to score big runs for PZ in Match 2.

KAR vs PES Top Team Bowlers

Mohammad Amir, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Imran Tahir are the bowlers to keep an eye on from Karachi Kings. Not only can the South African duo cause problems to the opposition bowling lineup with their variations but can even can their economy in check. Whereas Amir will have the responsibility to make the best use of the new ball.

Lastly, from the Peshawar Zalmi, we suggest you pick Usman Qadir, Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, and Wahab Riaz in your fantasy team. Riaz will be expected to make use of his bounce and swing on a relatively slow surface. While the spinning duo can get the odd turn on this wicket.

🏆 Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi Prediction

Since Peshawar Zalmi has been the dominant force over Karachi Kings in the past, we predict the dominance to continue even in Match 2. Being the better side of the paper, PZ does look to have a well-balanced batting unit to make the best use of the wicket in the National Stadium in Karachi. Moreover, Zalmi’s spinners do have the talent to cause the oddball to surprise the marquee players in the oppositiom batting order. Therefore, we predict Zalmi to register a one-sided thumping over the Kings on February 14.
