The Pakistan Super League has been very exciting this season as the competition between the different teams has been very even. The Multan Sultans have confirmed their place in the PSL 2020 playoffs and the Quetta Gladiators have been knocked out but the other four teams are all locked in competition for the remaining spots.
This next match is going to be the Karachi Kings and Islamabad United. The Karachi Kings are in second place right now and in a very strong position to qualify for the playoffs. Islamabad United is currently second from the bottom and will need to win this match to have a very slim chance of qualifying. A number of other results will have to Islamabad’s way for that to happen.
Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United PSL 2020 is going to be played at the National Stadium, Karachi on the 14th of March 2020.
The Karachi Kings came up with a complete performance in their previous match against the Lahore Qalandars. A brilliant bowling performance which kept the Lahore Qalandars to a very gettable total was followed up by an unbeaten opening partnership of over 150 runs.
There was nothing that the Karachi Kings could have wanted more from the previous match and that is why we don’t think there are going to be any changes to their team for this match.
Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan will be full of confidence after their brilliant batting against Lahore. Sharjeel Khan smashed five sixes and showed just what a massive loss he has been to Pakistan cricket during the period of his ban.
An in-form Alex Hales, Iftikhar Ahmed, Chadwick Walton, and Imad Wasim were still waiting in the dressing room which gives you an idea of the batting might at Karachi’s disposal.
Mohammad Amir and Chris Jordan are the players that are now expected to raise their games ahead of the PSL playoffs. Both of them rank among the best T20 bowlers in the world and would like to deliver when it matters the most.
Imad Wasim, Usama Mir, and Arshad Iqbal had a decent outing with the ball as well.

Anything can happen in a rain-affected match and that is why it can be a bit difficult to judge teams purely on that. The unpredictability of a shortened game is especially true in a 20 over contest because the match is so short to begin with.
Islamabad United was in a nine-over slugfest with the Multan Sultans and they came up short. Now it is up to Colin Munro, Luke Ronchi, and the others to try and win this last group match of PSL 2020 for Islamabad United.
The batting has been doing pretty well for Islamabad United in PSL 5 thanks to the emergence of Shadab Khan as a genuine bating option. The onus still has to be on the regulars, though, and this is why we would rather see Colin Ingram be promoted for this crucial match.
Islamabad United’s batting is a bit weaker on paper than the Karachi Kings and so they must hope for a match-winning performance from one of their senior players.
Mohammad Musa, Dale Steyn, Rumman Raees, and Amad Butt are the bowlers leading the attack for Islamabad United. Shadab Khan has been pretty ordinary with the ball and so we are not really counting on him being too much of a factor.
Islamabad United has struggled plenty of times in PSL 5 to be able to keep the runs from the opposition down and they cannot afford another such performance in this match. The pressure to win and win big can affect the manner in which the team plays.
Philip Salt, Hussain Talat, Rizwan Hussain, Colin Ingram, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Musa Khan, Shadab Khan, Rumman Raees, Zafar Gohar, Akif Javed.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first.
