Karachi is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with 10% chances of precipitation. No rain interruptions are expected in this match.
National Stadium has a lovely sheen on the pitch and the ball will slide onto the bat comfortably. The average scores has been around 180-190 runs in this season with most of the matches going for over 170+ runs.
The pitch has started to slightly slow down and batting becomes difficult in the second innings. After first 6 matches were won by teams batting second, the next 6 matches are won by teams batting first.
Karachi Kings batting line-up relies heavily on Babar Azam and lacks a quality hitter at the top of the order who can take on the bowlers from the word go. They have a quality bowling attack with a lot of experience. Islamabad United has one of the strongest batting line-ups with quality batters in top-6. They lack experience in the pace department effectively. We expect Islamabad United to win this match.
Islamabad United will win this match.
