Pakistan Super League, 2022 – Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings – 21st Match Prediction

Another day, another fantastic win for the Lahore Qalandars. Lahore Qalandars are gradually closing the gap on Multan Sultans for the top of the ladder, and they are doing quite well. They have managed to widen the gap between themselves and Islamabad United, who are just below the Qalandars on the league table.

Now, Islamabad United must perform admirably in their remaining matches if they are not to fall behind in the race for the playoffs. Next up in the competition, Islamabad United will face Karachi Kings, who are struggling in this season’s Pakistan Super League. This match is crucial for both of these teams, and they are expected to go all guns blazing at each other.

The game between the two teams will take place on February 14th, 2022 at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings Team Previews

Islamabad United (Match Odds – 1.47)

Team Islamabad United have always been the type of team that gets the job done but doesn’t make a big deal out of it. They appear to be doing well in this edition of the tournament as well, and another win here should put them in a good position to advance to the next round. They would need to win some more games, but they will likely find it easier than the other teams, owing to their excellent net run rate.

Islamabad United is currently in third place in the points table and is breathing down the Qalandars’ neck. The fact that they have a fantastic net run rate of 0.792 speaks volumes about how dominant they have been in the matches that they have won thus far. Furthermore, the majority of their losses have been close calls that could have gone either way.

Islamabad United is coming off a narrow defeat at the hands of Quetta Gladiators and will be eager to avenge their defeat. On paper, they appear to have a fairly balanced side that covers all of their bases. Prior to their loss to the Gladiators, they dominated the Karachi Kings, which should boost their confidence heading into this match.

Overall, despite suffering a defeat in their previous match, Islamabad United will not be concerned. They are still in with a chance of finishing among the top two teams and will need to win this upcoming match. They certainly have the personnel to do that and if they, together as a side, are able to play to their potential, Islamabad United will be s very tough side to beat.

Islamabad United Squad

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Alex Hales, Shadab Khan (c), Asif Ali, Muhammad Akhlaq, Azam Khan (wk), Liam Dawson, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Zeeshan Zameer, Colin Munro, Marchant de Lange, Reece Topley, Zafar Gohar, Waqas Maqsood, Zahir Khan, Muhammad Musa, Danish Aziz, Mohammad Huraira, Athar Mahmood, Mubasir Khan

Predicted XI: Alex Hales, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Muhammad Akhlaq, Shadab Khan (c), Asif Ali, Azam Khan (wk), Liam Dawson, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Hasan Ali, Zeeshan Zameer

Karachi Kings (Match Odds – 2.70)

Karachi Kings were one of the favourites to advance to the next round before the tournament began, but they completely botched their plans in terms of execution. Babar Azam’s captaincy has taken a hit in the tournament as a result of him not living up to the standards he has set. With so many things going wrong, the Kings are fortunate to still be in the tournament. They are, however, already in a must-win situation, and a loss here could mean an early exit from the tournament.

Karachi Kings are currently ranked last on the points table, with zero points to their name. They have not only lost all of their matches, but they have also lost them without putting up much of a fight. Their net run rate of -1.420, the worst in the tournament thus far, speaks volumes about how bad the Kings have been.

The Kings are coming off a crushing 42-run defeat at the hands of Islamabad United, which was followed by a defeat at the hands of Peshawar Zalmi. Chasing a total of 193 against Zalmi, the Kings only managed to score 138 runs as none of their batsmen looked comfortable enough to score quickly in the middle.

Overall, the Karachi Kings are doing a lot of things wrong, and they will need to fix most of them, if not all, in this upcoming match. It’s unlikely, but not impossible for a team as talented as Karachi Kings. They have a wealth of experience at their disposal, and if they can maximise it and play to their full potential, they will be a difficult team to beat.

Karachi Kings Squad

Babar Azam (c), Sharjeel Khan, Joe Clarke (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Ian Cockbain, Aamer Yamin, Sahibzada Farhan, Chris Jordan, Qasim Akram, Imad Wasim, Umaid Asif, Usman Shinwari, Tom Abell, Mohammad Ilyas, Tom Lammonby, Rohail Nazir, Mohammad Taha, Romario Shepherd, Jordan Thompson, Mohammad Imran, Faisal Akram, Talha Ahsan, Lewis Gregory, Mohammad Amir
