Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KAR Team News

Having lost their first match in a nail-biting fashion by only 2 runs, the Karachi Kings will be hoping to bank on their same starting XI with Mohammad Amir, Mir Hamza, and Imran Tahir expected to lead their bowling attack as there are no injuries in the side. However, Andrew Tye could see himself being replaced by Tabriaz Shamsi in the starting XI.

KAR Key Players

  • Shoaib Malik - The 41-year-old showcased just how capable he is in Match 2 as he slammed 52 runs off just 32 balls, including 2 sixes and 4 boundaries. 
  • Imad Wasim - The marquee all-rounder continued his impressive form by not only building a steady partnership with Shoaib Malik but even scoring 80 runs in just 47 balls, smashing 7 boundaries in 4 sixes in Match 2.
  • Imran Tahir - Given that the National Cricket Stadium in Karachi might offer help for the spinners, Imran Tahir’s experience will be vital for KK in Match 4.

KAR Team Form

After winning only 1 game in 10 clashes last season, the Kings were just outplayed by Zalmi in their inaugural encounter of this edition. They have only won one of their previous five matches entering Match 4 of PSL 2023.

Who will win Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United T20 Match?

Given that both teams have made improvements in their squads to fill their voids, still Islamabad United seems to be a more composed batting and bowling unit as compared to Karachi Kings. Moreover, given the pitch conditions and nature, we predict IU to register their first win of PSL 2023 in a close contest against KK.

KAR vs ISL Top Team Batsmen

Imad Wasim, Shoaib Malik, and Sharjeel Khan are your suggested batting picks from the Karachi Kings. While both Malik and Wasim went on to register half-centuries against their respective names in Match 2, Sharjeel Khan has the potential to score a big total if he gets to a good start in the powerplay.

On the other hand, Alex Hales, Azam Khan, and Rassie van der Dussen are your top batting picks from the Islamabad United squad. Not only can Hales and Van Der Dussen bat across the entire 20-over spell for IU, but their playing nature is much suited to this venue as well. Whereas Azam Khan has been in fine knick and will be hoping to make a case for himself in Pakistan’s squad for this year’s World Cup.

KAR vs ISL Top Team Bowlers

Imran Tahir, Mir Hamza, and Tabriaz Shamsi can be your top bowling options from Karachi Kings for Match 4. As we have witnessed how the fast bowlers are taken apart at National Cricket Stadium’s track, the spinners of KK can prove to be their x-factor as they might get the turn to out whim the opposition batting lineup. On the other hand, Mir Hamza will be once again given the responsibility with the new ball alongside Mohammad Amir.

Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, and Zeeshan Zameer are your suggested bowling picks from Islamabad United for Match 4.While the captain has been in splendid form in the last calender year, his spin attack will be crucial for his side in restricting the Kings to a median score. Whereas Hasan Ali and Zeesham Zameer will be looking to use their pace and variation to clinch wickets.

๐Ÿ† Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United Prediction

While the Kings have shown potential of making a comeback in the 2023 edition, Islamabad United have picked a stronger squad with a balanced mix of batters, bowlers, and all-rounders. Moreover, their restricted spin attack could cause them some issues, but their top batting order does seem to dominate the game at least on paper. Citing this, we predict that the Islamabad United are going to register their first win of this campaign in Match 4 itself.
