THE TEAM NEWS

KARACHI KINGS

  • Karachi Kings suffered a disappointing defeat in their last game but will get a chance to earn revenge for that loss against Lahore Qalandars as they come up against the same opposition once again in a very important contest.
  • The Kings did a solid job with the bat as they were able to amass 187 runs for the loss of five wickets with Alex Hales’ unbeaten knock of 80 looking good enough to lead his side to a match-winning total but that did not prove to be the case.
  • The bowling unit failed to contain the in-form Ben Dunk and his power-hitting proved too much for the Kings as the Qalandars surpassed their target with five balls and eight wickets to spare.

LAHORE QALANDARS

  • Lahore Qalandars continued their upturn in form as they claimed a thrilling victory over Peshawar Zalmi to make it three wins in a row which has significantly boosted their chances of making the play-offs.
  • A big partnership from Shoaib Malik and Haider Ali looked to have given Zalmi the advantage as they finished on 187/7 despite the best efforts of Shaheen Afridi and Samit Patel who continued their impressive form by sharing five wickets.
  • Chris Lynn returned to the side following illness and notched 59 while Fakhar Zaman also contributed 63 but the Qalandars needed a six from David Wiese from the penultimate ball of the innings to edge the pivotal victory.

THE PREDICTION

Lahore Qalandars continued their turnaround with a third straight win in their last game and they are now on the cusp of earning a spot in the play-offs. They would move a step closer with a second win in quick succession over Karachi Kings after the pair met over the weekend. Both teams scored big that day but the Qalandars made more inroads with the ball and that could be a similar story in this contest with Lahore able to extend their winning streak to four matches.
