The 10th match of HBL PSL 2 will take place between the former and current capital of Pakistan. It will be Karachi Kings Vs Islamabad United. It will be very exciting to see who performs.
Karachi in this tournament are completely rotten. Simplifying that even with the world class players they are not able to perform and recently they were bashed by their arch rivals Lahore and they are yet to open their account.
However Islamabad is playing quite decently in this tournament, they were looking comfortable from the start. Even after losing their key players they were still able to perform. With the healthy opening victory when they chased a huge target of 175 in 18 overs against the Zalmi. Afterwards they bore a loss against Qalandars but regained their form in the match against Quetta systematically.
Their meetings were resulted as one siders all the time when Islamabad always won against Karachi in their 3 outings and Karachi are yet to win a game against them. Islamabad must be very confident about winning against Karachi without any difficulty.
Karachi is lacking combination this year, with Gayle not performing at all and Babar Azam loosing his consistency. Sangakkara and Malik all the time try to settle the innings but that is not enough when you don’t get a start from top order. Whilst Islamabad has been great throughout with the suspension of Sharjeel they have found a perfect opener in the shape of Sam Billings who is always ready to give boost to the team and Shane Watson leading the bowling and pinch hitting in the end of innings. Islamabad is favourites to steal the show.
With the performances based on the teams wether Karachi will win their first game or will Islamabad continue their comprehensive form?
