Karachi Kings vs Quetta Gladiators Match Prediction, PSL 2020

Quetta Gladiators must beat Karachi Kings in the final group game of the 2020 Pakistan Super League or they will be eliminated. The match takes place at the National Stadium, Karachi, on March 15 and the live action is scheduled to start at 19:00 local time.

The defending champions go into the final day of fixtures sat bottom of the pile, having won just three of their eight completed games. They have lost Jason Roy and Tymal Mills too, with the English duo returning home in order due to coronavirus fears. The Gladiators’ last completed game saw them post just 98/9 from their 20 overs against Lahore Qalandars too.

Karachi Kings, on the other hand, are guaranteed to finish second no matter what happens on the final day of round robin action. They have got back to winning ways with a ten-wicket win against Lahore and their four-wicket triumph against Islamabad last time out.

Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KRK Team News

Alex Hales has returned home due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Cameron Delport returning in his place last time out, but Chris Jordan’s decision to stay is a bonus for the Kings. 

KRK Key Players

Babar Azam: The top run-scorer in this competition so far, with 313 runs in eight innings – including three half-centuries – with a strike rate of 127.75.

Imad Wasim: Took 1-23 last time out, before hitting two fours and a six in a total of 26 from 34 balls last time out.

Mohammad Amir: Sits on 199 wickets so far in T20 cricket, and was tidy again last time out as he recorded figures of 0-28.

KRK Team Form

Karachi Kings have won their last two matches, thrashing Lahore Qalandars as Sharjeel Khan (74*) and Babar Azam (69*) shared an unbroken 151-run partnership in a ten-wicket win. Sharjeel then hit 37 from 14 last time out as they won a low-scoring game against Islamabad United – chasing 137 to win by four wickets.

Karachi Kings Predicted Playing 11

Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam, Cameron Delport, Chadwick Walton (wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim (c), Umaid Asif, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Amir, Usama Mir, Arshad Iqbal

Quetta Gladiators Team News & Playing 11

QTG Team News

Jason Roy and Tymal Mills have both returned home as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Mills did not play their last completed game – the defeat to Lahore after a below-par batting performance – but Roy has been at the top of the order. Young paceman Naseem Shah is doubtful as a result of the ankle injury that also saw him miss the last game.

QTG Key Players

Mohammad Hasnain: While the team have been below par, the teenage paceman has taken 14 wickets in eight matches to lead the wicket-taking charts.

Mohammad Nawaz: Took 2-9 last time out to move to six wickets in the tournament, while he has contributed 108 runs with the bat.

Ben Cutting: The more prominent of the all-rounders, he has taken eight wickets and has scored 146 runs.

QTG Team Form

Quetta Gladiators were denied the chance to end their four-match losing streak last time out due to the weather. It means they have still not played since struggling to a miserable 98/9 from their 20 overs on their way to an eight-wicket loss to Lahore Qalandars. 

Quetta Gladiators Predicted Playing 11

Shane Watson, Ahmed Shehzad, Anwar Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Mohammad Nawaz, Azam Khan, Ben Cutting, Sohail Khan, Fawad Ahmed, Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Hasnain

KRK vs QTG Dream11 Prediction

Wicket-keeper(s)

All four of the wicket-keepers are priced at 8.5 credits but Sarfaraz Ahmed has top-scored so far. Chadwick Walton would be a good alternative but he is down the order now

Batsmen

Babar Azam is the top run-scorer in this year’s tournament so far, and has amassed 457 Dream 11 points in the process. Opening partner Sharjeel Khan is also in great form but he only costs 8.5 credits. Last year’s Quetta hero, Shane Watson, meanwhile, is 10.5 credits and with Jason Roy gone needs to step it up with the bat.

All-rounder(s)

Onto the all-rounders, and Ben Cutting, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz have all made useful all-round contributions so far. All three have scored more than 300 Dream 11 points and all three are good value

Bowlers

Mohammad Amir and Chris Jordan cost nine credits apiece and both are key for Karachi Kings – Amir with the ball, and Jordan as a bowling all-rounder. Mohammad Hasnain is the tournament’s leading wicket-taker so far and yet costs just 8.5 credits, while Sohail Khan is the same price to round your team off.

Captain/vice-captain

Ben Cutting’s all-round form has been good for Quetta Gladiators, but this match also features the tournament’s leading run-scorer – Babar Azam – against the leading wicket-taker in Mohammad Hasnain. Any two of those three could be a good balance.

KRK vs QTG Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Babar Azam (vc), Sharjeel Khan, Shane Watson

  • All Rounder:Imad Wasim, Ben Cutting (c), Mohammad Nawaz

  • Wicket Keeper:Sarfaraz Ahmed

  • Bowler:Mohammad Amir, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Hasnain, Sohail Khan
