On the other hand, Karachi Kings were completely outplayed by Multan Sultans in the previous match. Captain Imad Wasim will be hoping that the side can recover and make a strong comeback in this fixture.

Islamabad United Form and Team News

Despite Hasan Ali ruled out for the remainder of PSL, the bowlers put in an excellent performance to help Islamabad United pull off a splendid win over Lahore Qalandars.

The team management will be hoping that the side can still improve their game with the bat in the remaining round-robin matches.

Islamabad United top-order once again crumbled against Lahore’s disciplined bowling attack. 

The side was placed in a precarious situation at 20 for 5 after 6.1 overs. Asif Ali and Iftikhar Ahmed came together and put on an excellent partnership of 123 runs to stage a strong comeback for Islamabad.

For Islamabad United, Asif Ali was the standout performer with the bat. He performed exceedingly well and finished the innings with the top score of 75 runs off 43 balls with the help of six fours and five sixes. He was well supported by Iftikhar Ahmed, who chipped in with 49 runs off 37 balls with the help of six boundaries.

Due to excellent contributions from Asif Ali and Iftikhar Ahmed, Islamabad United registered a modest total of 152 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

The top-order comprising of Usman Khuwaja, Rohail Nazir, and Colin Munro will have to deliver runs for Islamabad United in this fixture. The onus will be on experienced players like Hussain Talat, Asif Ali, and Iftikhar Ahmed to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Fawad Ahmed, Muhammad Musa, and Mohammad Wasim Jr. to make crucial breakthroughs in this contest.

Pacer Muhammad Musa was the standout bowler on display for Islamabad United and finished with figures of 3 for 18 in his four overs. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan put in a splendid bowling performance and claimed 2 for 16 in his four overs.

Karachi Kings Form and Team News

The franchise suffered their third defeat of the competition at the hands of Multan Sultans. The team management will be hoping that bowlers can put in an improved performance against Islamabad United.

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the opening duo of Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam to lay down an ideal foundation for the likes of Chadwick Walton and Thisara Perera to play their natural game.

In the previous match, Babar Azam was the lone warrior with the bat for Karachi Kings. He scored unbeaten 85 runs off 63 balls with the help of five fours and four sixes. Besides Azam, Martin Guptill failed to capitalize on his good start and perished after scoring 11 runs off 16 balls.

The likes of Imad Wasim and Thisara Perera had a poor outing with the bat in the previous game. The tactics of promoting Najibullah Zadran also failed miserably for Karachi Kings.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Arshad Iqbal, Mohammad Amir, and Imad Wasim to make crucial breakthroughs.
