Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi, 2nd Match PSL 2023
Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi will play their first game of this eighth PSL season against each other. Kings did not do well in the previous edition of the Pakistan Super League and only managed to win one of the ten league games. They lost nine games and were bottom of the points table. They made some changes to their team and hoped for better results.
Peshawar Zalmi performed well in the previous PSL T20 season and was the third-best-performing team in this tournament. Peshawar won six of their ten league games. They lost four games and took third place in the table. They made it to the playoffs but were defeated by Islamabad United in the knockout match. Peshawar had picked some of the best players for this tournament and we are sure they will perform well.
Karachi King’s middle batting order is a bit thin. Haider Ali played many matches for Peshawar Zalmi and now he will play for Karachi Kings. His form has not been good in recent games, but we expect him to perform well in this tournament. Shoaib Malik, Ben Cutting, and Matthew Wade are the mid-level hitters for the Karachi Kings. Matthew Wade is a dangerous batsman in T20 cricket and he is sure to perform well against the Peshawar Zalmi bowlers.
Karachi Kings had a decent bowling department. The skipper, Imad Wasim, will lead the bowling unit and we are sure he will bowl first. We know you are a power play specialist. Mohammad Amir is the other best bowler for the Kings. He excelled in several competitions. Not only had he picked wickets in the first overs, but his economy rate is also excellent. Tabraiz Shamsi is another spinning puppet in the Karachi Kings team.
Sherfane Rutherford, Saim Ayub, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mohammad Haris, and Rovman Powell are available to field Peshawar Zalmi’s middle batting order. This is a good batting order and we can expect them to score over 170 runs batting first in Karachi conditions. Peshawar Zalmi’s bowling is also good but we can’t say it’s the best. Wahab Riaz will lead the bowling unit. Remember Iftikhar Ahmad hit him six considerable sixes in one over in an exhibition match against Quetta Gladiators. Mujeeb ur Rahman is another veteran bowler in the Peshawar Zalmi team. Salman Irshad, Usman Qadir, and Arshad Iqbal are other veteran bowlers from Peshawar Zalmi.
