PSL 2022 is off and running successfully with some entertaining and thrilling cricket played in the Pakistan. Karachi Kings are suffering a losing streak losing all their matches played in this season so far. They are looking for inspiration from their individuals which would catapult the team`s spirits in this all important clash. Peshawar Zalmi won their opening match but had a rough patch with loss in the next matches. They too will look for crucial points from this match.
Sharjeel Khan (60 runs) and Babar Azam (41 runs) gave a good start with an 84-run opening partnership but their middle order failed to capitalize on it as they ended with just 170/7 in their 20 overs. Their batters need to play more aggressively and put scores in the range of 180+ runs in this match and they lack a big hitting player in their XI.
Their bowlers failed to defend 170 runs in the last game. Spinners Imad Wasim and Mohammed Nabi had combined figures of 8-0-55-2 and restricted the run flow effectively in the match. Umaid Asif bowled well and picked up 2 crucial wickets in the match. Mohammed Ilyas and Lewis Gregory went for runs at over 10 RPO in the match.
Key players to bet on: Babar Azam, Mohammed Nabi, Umaid Asif
Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam (c), Joe Clarke (wk), Sahibzada Farhan, Mohammad Nabi, Lewis Gregory, Aamer Yamin, Imad Wasim, Umaid Asif, Mohammad Taha, Mohammad Ilyas/Mohammed Amir

Peshawar Zalmi changed their top-3 in the bating line-up but barring Kamran Akmal`s 41 runs the other two changes did not yield result. Haider Ali, Shoiab Malik, Ben Cutting and Shane Rutherford constitute a strong middle order batting line-up of the team. They need to play more sensibily to help their team win matches consistently.
Peshawar Zalmi were taken for 199 runs in the last game as they were not able to stop the batters yet again. Hussain Talat had decent bowling figures of 3-0-19-1 in the match.

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 is batsmen`s paradise with good bounce and carry. Teams are consistently scoring runs in the ranges of 180+ runs and we expect another run feast in this match too. Bowlers need to accurate with their execution and perfection of variations and Yorkers.
Chasing teams have won 6 of the 8 matches played so far and we expect both captains to follow the trend and chase the target in this match too.
Karachi Kings batting line-up relies heavily on their openers and lack the firepower in the middle order to give finishes with a flourish. They had a good bowling attack at their disposal. Peshawar Zalmi has a troublesome top order and their middle order has been left to do the rescue act. Their bowling has leaked runs in all the matches played so far. We expect Karachi Kings to win this match owing to their better bowling unit.
