PSL 2023 Match 4: Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United Preview

We had seen exciting matches in this Pakistani Super League season. The first two games were very interesting with a winning margin of only one run in the first game and two runs in the second game. The most recent match between Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators was a one-sided match where Multan Sultans won by a huge margin of nine wickets. Kings had a decent game against Peshawar Zalmi even though they were on the losing end.

Karachi Kings

Karachi Kings showed their punch in the first match where they scored almost 200 runs. They play aggressively and we are sure they will give it a hard time for almost every team in this tournament. Islamabad United will play their first game of the season in the Pakistan Super League. Islamabad United qualified for the playoffs of the previous edition of PSL. They won only four of their ten league games. They were tied on points with the Quetta Gladiators; but a better net run rate saw them advance to the playoffs.

Karachi Kings is a strong team and they showed it in their first game against Peshawar Zalmi. They lost the game, but it is also a fact that they did well. They decided to field first after winning the coin toss; but this decision turned out to be wrong. This was a strange decision in our opinion as Karachi is a high-scoring venue and a great total on the board is always a huge advantage. The Karachi Kings bowling unit did not perform well, leaking 199 runs in 20 overs. The Karachi Kings bowling unit is strong and led by Mohammad Amir, Mir Hamza, Andrew Tye, Imran Tahir, and Imad Wasim. Mir Hamza was the only successful bowler in the previous match with a wicket to his name in two overs against 13 runs.

Islamabad United

Islamabad United reached the playoffs of the 7th edition of the Pakistan Super League. They won the knockout match against Peshawar Zalmi but lost qualifier 2 against Lahore Qalandars by a very narrow margin. They had made some interesting changes to their roster for this tournament. Shadab Khan was in charge of Islamabad United for several previous seasons and will be in charge this PSL season as well. Islamabad United’s best batting order is very strong and experienced. Alex Hales, Sohaib Maqsood, and Asif Ali are the best hitters at the highest level. Alex Hales has been in shape since the World Cup. In the last edition of the BBL, he continued his good form.
