isu vs krk Match Prediction & Analysis

Islamabad United and Karachi Kings will be looking to start their road to recovery when they will face each other in the 14th match of the 2020 Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Rawalpindi on Sunday.

Both teams have lost their previous fixtures in the competition and will be looking to get back to winning ways.

Islamabad United’s previous game against Peshawar Zalmi was abandoned due to heavy rains. Captain Shadab Khan will be hoping that the side can learn from the mistakes and make a strong comeback in this home fixture.

On the other hand, Kings also failed to make an impression with the bat and ball against Multan Sultans. Captain Imad Wasim might be looking to make changes to their playing XI in order to break their losing streak in the competition.

Teams Preview

Islamabad United Preview

Two-time PSL Champions might make one or two changes to their playing XI. Left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar might come into the side in place of Amad Butt, who conceded a lot of runs in the game played against Quetta Gladiators.

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the likes of Luke Ronchi, Dawid Malan, and Colin Ingram to produce the bulk of the runs. In the previous game, wicket-keeper batsman Luke Ronchi perished after scoring just 11 runs off 4 balls.

Colin Munro played well and chipped in with 31 off 20 balls with the help of two fours and three sixes, whereas captain Shadab Khan continued his excellent form with the bat and scored 39 runs off 25 balls with the help of three fours and two sixes.

Middle-order batsman Colin Ingram was the standout player for Islamabad United with the bat against Quetta Gladiators. Left-hander produced an exceptional knock of 63 runs off 40 balls with the help of six boundaries and two sixes.

On the bowling front, the pace trio of Rumman Raees, Faheem Ashraf and Mohammad Musa will need to make early inroads with the new ball. Rookie spinner Ahmed Saifi Abdullah has done well for the side in the two matches played so far in the competition.

Islamabad United Predicted Playing XI:

Shadab Khan (captain), Faheem Ashraf, Muhammad Musa, Luke Ronchi (wk), Dawid Malan, Colin Ingram, Colin Munro, Asif Ali, Amad Butt/Zafar Gohar, Rumman Raees, Ahmed Safi Abdullah

Islamabad United Actual Playing XI:

Luke Ronchi, Colin Munro, Musa Khan, Colin Ingram, DW Steyn, Rumman Raees, Asif Ali, Rizwan Hussain, Ahmed Safi Abdullah, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan

Karachi Kings Preview

On the other hand, Karachi Kings suffered a 52-run defeat at the hands of Multan Sultans in a PSL game played at Multan With this result, Karachi Kings are lying at the bottom of the league table with 2 points to their name. Kings will certainly make changes to their final XI in order to end their two-match losing streak.

In the batting department, the focus will be on the likes of Babar Azam, Alex Hales, and Cameron Delport to produce runs with the bat. The opening duo of Babar and Sharjeel failed to capitalize on their decent start. Against Multan, Babar Azam scored 13 runs off 12 balls with the help of one four, whereas Sharjeel Khan chipped in with 16 runs off 9 balls with the help of two fours and one six.

Alex Hales finished the innings with the top-score of 29 runs off 21 balls with the help of four boundaries and one six. The franchise will rue the fact that they lost wickets at regular intervals in the game played against Multan Sultans. The side has a decent middle-order consisting of players like Chadwick Walton, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Imad Wasim, who all can deliver notable scores on a given day.

In the bowling department, pacer duo of Mohammad Amir and Chris Jordan bowled well and picked up two wickets apiece. The rest of the bowling attack was not able to create any sort of pressure on Multan Sultan’s star-studded batting lineup.

Karachi Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Alex Hales, Cameron Delport, Chadwick Walton (wk)/Mohammad Rizwan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim (c), Chris Jordan, Umaid Asif, Mohammad Amir, Umer Khan
