Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings PSL T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

Peshawar Zalmi PSZ
Karachi Kings KRK
197/5 (20)
173/8 (20)
Peshawar Zalmi won by 24 runs

PSZ vs KRK Betting Tips

  • Tom Kohler Cadmore has been the best batsman for Zalmi in this edition of PSL. He even smashed 55 runs in just 23 balls against the Lahore Qalandars. On the other hand, Wahab Riaz was the only bowler who was able to get 2 wickets for the same team. Given the experience of the left-arm pacer, we predict him to be their leading wicket-taker in Match 17 as well.
  • Karachi Kings saw Tayyab Tahir take apart the Multan Sultans in their previous win as he smashed 65 runs at a strike rate of 141. While Tabraiz Shamsi was the pick of their bowlers as he took 3 wickets for just 18 runs in his quota of 4 overs.
  • Given how well the South African spinner was able to make use of the flat pitches in Pakistan, we predict Shamsi to take over 2 wickets even in Match 17.

Karachi Kings finally got the right playing XI on the field as they beat the best of the tournament - Multan Sultans in their previous game. So, in Match 17, Imad Wasim is likely to enter with the same XI.

KAR Team Form

Being the last in the points table after their first 3 games, the Kings have bounced back in style winning 2 of their last 3. Another win could very well take them into second place in the standings.

Who will win Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings T20 Match?

Given that the venue has often witnessed the batsman steal the show and win for their team, both teams will be depending upon their top order to provide them with a good start. However, the performance of Tabriaz Shamsi and Saad Masood with the ball, for their respective teams can very well decide the fate of this game.

PES vs KAR Top Team Batsmen

Babar Azam, Saim Ayub, and Tom Kohler Cadmore are the top batsmen to pick from the Peshawar Zalmi unit. While Ayub and Kohler have both smashed half-centuries in the previous game against the Qlandars, Azam is the leading run-scorer for this spoken-off team.

On the other hand, the best batting picks from Karachi Kings would be - James Vince, Matthew Wade, and Tayyab Tahir. While Vince scored 27 runs at the strike rate of 227 in the previous game for the Kings, Wade and Tahir combined to score 101 runs for the same team.

PES vs KAR Top Team Bowlers

Saad Masood, Wahab Riaz, and Rovmann Powell are the top bowlers from Peshawar Zalmi to keep an eye on. While Riaz and Powell were the only bowlers to register wickets against their names for Zalmi in their previous game, the spin and variation of Masood could be the X-Factor of the team in Match 17 in Rawalpindi.

Akif Javed, Shoaib Malik, and Tabriaz Shamsi are the best-suggested bowling picks from Karachi Kings. Both Malik and Shamsi took 3 wickets, Javed went on to concede only 8 runs in his 2 overs, and even took 2 wickets in Match 14 for his team.

🏆 Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings Prediction

While the Head-To-head record definitely indicates Peshawar Zalmi to emerge victorious in Match 17 yet it does look like Karachi Kings are settling into a better unit. The likes of Wade, Tahir, and Vince are seeming to be in a better shape as Malik has provided them with the required bowling depth. Given that Rawalpindi has been haunting ground for the batsmen, we expect the top 3 of Kings to have a better impact. This is just why we predict Karachi Kings to beat Peshawar Zalmi in Match 17.
