Teams Preview

Islamabad United Preview

The franchise has suffered a minor setback as pacer Hasan Ali will not be available for remainder of the Pakistan Super League. The pacer withdrawal will mean that fringe bowlers will have an opportunity to showcase their skills with the ball.

In the batting department, the side will be depending on the opener Colin Munro, middle-duo order of Iftikhar Ahmed and Asif Ali to make notable contributions with the bat.

Facing a lot of flak from cricket pundits for his repeated failures, Asif Ali delivered a spectacular innings for Islamabad United in a tough situation. With the half the side back in the dressing room, Asif joined hands with Iftikhar Ahmed to lead the fightback for United.

For United, experienced middle-order Asif Ali was star of the show with the bat. He produced one of his finest performances in PSL and scored 75 runs with the help of six fours and five sixes. He was well supported by Iftikhar Ahmed, who fell one run short of a richly deserved half-century.

In the bowling department, pacer Muhammad Musa continued to impress with the ball in hand. He picked big wickets of Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez and Ben Dunk to turn the game in favor of Lahore Qalandars.

Leg spin duo of Fawad Ahmed and Shadab Khan bowled well in the middle-overs of the innings and claimed two wickets apiece.

Islamabad United Predicted Playing XI:

Usman Khuwaja, Colin Munro, Hussain Talat, Rohail Nazir (wk), Shadab Khan (c), Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Fawad Ahmed, Muhammad Musa, Ali Khan, Mohammad Wasim Jr

Karachi Kings Preview

The experienced players will have to come to the party for Kings to overcome Islamabad in this clash.

In the batting department, the onus will be opening pair of Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam to get the side off to a brisk start.

Sharjeel has struggled to make an impact with the bat so far in this second phase of PSL. Left-hander will need to spend time at the crease to find form with the bat.

His opening partner, Babar Azam, has been leading run-scorer in the tournament. In the previous match, Babar Azam nearly got the side over the line with his brilliant 85 not out.

Besides Babar, wicket-keeper Chadwick Walton looked good touch with the bat and smashed 35 runs off 23 balls.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on likes of Imad Wasim, Waqas Maqsood and Mohammad Amir to make crucial breakthroughs with the new-ball.

Karachi Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Najibullah Zadran, Thisara Perera, Martin Guptill, Chadwick Walton (wk), Imad Wasim (c), Qasim Akram, Waqas Maqsood, Mohammad Amir, Arshad Iqbal
