Their bowlers gave away more than 190+ runs for the second time in a row. Imad Wasim was brilliant with the ball with bowling figures of 4-0-22-1 and Mohammed Amir had decent bowling figures giving runs at 8.5 RPO.  Rest of the bowlers gave runs at over 10 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Babar Azam – Babar Azam has scores of 64 & 90* in the last 2 matches and we expect him to continue his purple patch in this match. He is the No.1 ranked T20I batsmen in the international stage.

Imad Wasim – Wasim had bowling figures of 4-0-22-1 in the last game when all the other bowlers where going at runs over 10 RPO. He has bowling figures of 1/31 & 1/32 in the remaining 2 games.

Lahore Qalandars Preview

Mohammed Hafeez led their batting unit in the last game with 60 runs and he was good support from the other end by Joe Denly (31 runs) and Samit Patel (26 runs). They posted an average score of just 157 runs on board in their 20 overs.

Shaheen Afridi and Samit Patel shared 3 wickets between themselves but were never going to trouble the opposition big time in the chase. Haris Rauf and Salman Mirza went for runs ta over 10 RPO and struggled to control the run flow effectively.  

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Hafeez – Hafeez is in brilliant form with scores of 33*, 73*, & 60 in the 3 matches batting in the crucial No.3 position. We expect him to make a big score in this match too.

Samit Patel – Samit Patel scored crucial 26 runs off 20 balls to finish with a flourish and had bowling figures of 3-0-26-1 in the match. He will be an effective all-rounder with both bat and ball for the team. 

Lahore Qalandars Predicted Playing XI:

Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar (c), Joe Denly, Mohammad Hafeez, Ben Dunk (wk), Samit Patel, David Wiese, Ahmed Daniyal, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Salman Mirza

Venue Details

Karachi is becoming a batsmen`s paradise as the bowlers are being reduced to mere bowling machines. The surface is having true pace and bounce to play the shots through the line. We expect the scores to be around 180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 100% winning record so far in PSL (10 matches) and we expect the both teams to chase the total if they win the toss.

KRK vs LHQ Winning Prediction

Karachi kings have a superb batting line-up with their top-3 batmen scoring runs consistently.  Lahore Qalanders rely heavily on Hafeez to score and have a strong middle order with the likes of Wiese, Samit Patel and Ben Dunk. Karachi bowling unit is struggling off late but has an experienced attack with the likes of Amir, Imad Wasim, Dan Christian and Mohammed Nabi. Lahore Qalanders have a fairly inexperienced bowling attack that is short of experience at big stages. We expect Karachi kings to win this match.

Karachi Kings will win the match
