Start time 8:00 PM local (09:00 PM PKT)
Under pressure Peshawar Zalmi will face the in form Karachi Kings for the 5th Time in PSL. Karachi Kings have came back in this season after a poor start and they look stronger than ever with both West Indians: Chris Henry Gayle & Kieron Pollard back in form. While Islamabad United also look good with Most Dangerous Shahid afridi scoring runs consistently in this PSL.
STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES:
Karachi King’s strength is also their weakness, Stars like Kieron Pollard & Chris Gayle either make the game for kings or break it. Kumar Sangakkara is the man with loads of experience and would play a major role in the success of Kings. The leading run scorer of this PSL Babar Azam is in good touch and he can demolish ay bowling attack so getting him early will be the key for Peshawar
Peshawar Zalmi strength is their bowling, With bowlers like Hassan Ali, Asghar, Afridi, and Wahab, they can restrict any team to a chasable totals. Hassan Ali who is in a good touch in this season can get their openers out early which can cost Kings badly. Afridi is bowling economical and is hard to hit, He will also test Kings batting tonight.
