Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings Eliminator Game – PSL Betting Tips

Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings will lock horns in the Eliminator game of 2021 Pakistan Super League played at Abu Dhabi on Monday.

Wahab Riaz’s Peshawar Zalmi have suffered from inconsistency in the UAE leg of the Pakistan Super League. The team has suffered two defeats in their last four matches played in the competition. The team management will be hoping that the side can raise their game with bat and ball in this must-win game.

In their last match against Quetta Gladiators, Karachi delivered a clinical performance with bat and ball to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament. Danish Aziz, who has been brought in place of Aamer Yamin, certainly delivered a match-winning performance with the bat for Kings.

During the two matches played between the teams during the PSL 2021, it was Karachi, who came out on top with a six-wicket margin in the first one whereas the Zalmi secured a six-wicket win in the return fixture.

Peshawar Zalmi Form and Team News:

For Peshawar Zalmi, they cannot afford any mistakes in this Eliminator game against Karachi Kings. The franchise has experienced players in the squad to come out on top in this knockout game.

Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik has been scoring consistently and has now overtaken Sherfane Rutherford to become the top run-scorer for the franchise with 244 runs with a strike rate of 140.22. Malik scored his second half-century of the tournament in the last game. 

With Kamran Akmal not managing to pull off anything special, the Zalmi has delivered as a unit on regular basis. However, With Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, and Rovman Powell in their batting order, they bat quite deep. Only if they show some more intent and go harder against the Karachi bowlers, they can certainly pile on the runs against the Kings.

Mohammad Irfan was rested in the last match but he is expected to return for this knockout game. One of Waqar Salamkheil or Abrar Ahmed will have to sit out. Wahab Riaz, Sameen Gul, and Umaid Asif will be prominent pace options for the side for this game.

After registering back-to-back victories in the tournament, Karachi Kings have been on an absolute roll and are peaking at the right time. They managed to eke out a close win in their last group match against Quetta Gladiators to seal their playoff berth in PSL 2021.

In the batting department, Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam have been bankable openers at the top of the innings for Kings this season.

For this eliminator game, Middle-order comprising of Najibullah Zadran, Chadwick Walton, and Danish Aziz will need to deliver quick runs at the back end of the innings. The inclusion of batting all-rounder Danish Aziz and spinner Noor Ahmad has provided much-needed balance to Karachi Kings.

In Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Ilyas, and Noor Ahmad, Karachi Kings have found their four best bowlers and will most certainly stick with them for this eliminator game.
