The Karachi Kings find themselves close to the bottom of the PSL 2020 League table only above the winless Lahore Qalandars. They will be taking on Islamabad United, a team that has done marginally better but is still in the lower half of the team standings.
It is safe to say that both the teams have left a lot of room for improvement in their cricket.
The Karachi Kings were thrashed by the Multan Sultans in their previous match while Islamabad United has to watch as the rain prevented any cricket from being played in its game against Peshawar Zalmi.
The teams are pretty closely packed together from second place down and so a couple of good wins could turn the entire season around very quickly.
Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings PSL 2020 is going to be played at the Rawalpindi Cricket Association, Rawalpindi on the 1st of March 2020.
An excellent batting performance from Islamabad United against the Quetta Gladiators was not enough for it to get itself a win. There were, however, some clear positives that are going to pay dividends for Islamabad United in PSL 2020.
Colin Munro smashed three sixes in his short stay at the crease and looked to be finding his touch. Munro is one of the most destructive batsmen in T20 cricket but has been struggling to find his best form of late. Luke Ronchi is someone who is going to be ultra-aggressive in every single match and come off once in a blue moon.
Everyone knows that and has accepted it.
Dawid Malan and Colin Ingram are the batsmen that we think are going to be the slid core for Islamabad United moving forward. Both the batsmen have got some runs under their belt and will be keen to convert more of their starts into meaningful scores.
The elevation of Shadab Khan in the batting order seems to be paying off. In two consecutive matches, now, Shadab Khan has been able to increase the run-rate and find the boundaries. With Asif Ali and Faheem Ashraf in the side as well, the batting lineup suddenly starts to become very long when Shadab Khan is contributing to the runs.
Mohammad Musa and Shadab Khan are the leading bowlers for Islamabad United. Faheem Ashraf, Rumman Raees, and Amad Butt are all decent bowlers. The difference between good and bad bowling performances has been Amad Butt. He either seems to pick up a number of wickets or is smashed around the park.

There is nothing lacking in the Karachi Kings squad in terms of personnel. In fact, a lot of teams would have looked at the riches in their squad with envy before the PSL began. Now, it looks like another familiar story where the Karachi Kings are underperforming expectations.
The opening pair of Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam has struggled to make an impact after the opening match. Babar Azam is in good form and looking very comfortable at the crease while he is there but is not able to convert it into big scores. That is not his fault as he cannot be expected to score centuries in every single game he plays.
Alex Hales, Cameron Delport, and Chadwick Walton have all been much below-par and that is why the Karachi Kings have struggled for runs in PSL 2020.
Islamabad United does not have a very strong bowling attack, although it is not weak either, and so maybe Babar Azam and company will be able to turn things around in this match. The bowling resources have not been utilized expertly by Imad Wasim.
It almost seems as Imad Wasim does not trust some of his leading bowlers and is trying to protect them. He has also been bowling very infrequently himself, something that is going to be a problem for his side moving forward.
Mohammad Amir has been excellent in PSL 2020, Chris Jordan has been faultless but that is about it. The rest of the bowling attack has not been able to keep the pressure up or keep the runs down. An improved bowling performance is necessary for the Karachi Kings to be able to make a comeback in PSL 2020.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The forecast for Rawalpindi is much better on Sunday than it was on Saturday. We should not have any rain and be able to get a complete uninterrupted match to watch. The pitch at Rawalpindi has been very good for batting and it could be just the kind of surface where batsmen from both the teams are able to make merry.
A score of around 180 seems to be the minimum that teams batting first are going to be aiming for.

We think Islamabad United should be able to win this match and keep the pressure on the leading teams. The Karachi Kings have to hope their leading batsmen are able to play a match-winning inning but at the moment, there are a number of weaknesses in both the batting and bowling.
