Important News :
- Karachi Kings last match was against Multan Sultans and in that match after toss it rained. So Karachi can play with same XI.
- Afridi was injured. No news on him till now. Seems like he cannot play today too. If any news we shall update it.
- Raees injured and he won’t play for few days.
- Farhan playing chances are doubtful due to his poor form.
- In wicket keeper section Ronchi and Rizwan are the options available. Ronchi is inconsistent and it’s very unpredictable on which day he will play big. Rizwan bats at middle order. Take any one according to your game plan.
- In batting section from Karachi Kings Denly and Ingram should be mandatory. Both are maintaining consistency. There are little chances of Walton coming back into the team but both Denly and Ingram are in good form and they are acting like a key players. Babar Azam is also another good option but he is out of form. We cannot underestimate him. From Islamabad United Duminy and Misbah are only safe and best options. Don’t miss Duminy, he is very good form.
- In all rounder section from Islamabad United Samit Patel should be mandatory. In last Islamabad surprised everyone by bringing Samit into the team. Russell and Shadab are other all rounders. Shadab is out of form. Russell is only other good option. From Karachi Kings Bopara is mandatory. Afridi may not play this game due to injury.
- In bowling from Islamabad United Ashraf and Sami are safe and good options. Don’t miss Ashraf. From Karachi Kings Amir is important. Take anyone from Mills, Irfan Jr and Usman Khan. If you are dropping Amir then take any two from Usman, Irfand and Mills.
Prediction : Karachi is only the team still not faced any defeat yet in the league. Islamabad United has a strong team but they are not consistent. On paper Islamabad United are looking strong but their players are inconsistent. On the other side, Karachi Kings are showing consistency. Backing Karachi, they are favourites of this game.
