Islamabad United

Islamabad United will take on Karachi Kings in the 19th game of the Pakistan Super League 2023 on Friday at the Pindi Club Ground in Rawalpindi. The United have won three out of five games so far and are in third position in the points table. They are coming into this game after losing their previous outing against Lahore Qalandars. The Qalandars scored 200 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 20 overs while batting first. The United were bundled out for just 90 runs and lost the game by a huge margin of 110 runs.

Islamabad United suffered a thorn in their journey and will be eager to make a roaring comeback. The batsmen failed miserably to salvage a win as they were bowled out for 90 runs. Not a single batsman stepped up as they kept falling at regular intervals. Opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz top-scored for the team with 24 runs off 17 balls. On the bowling front, the team is powered-up with the presence of Tom Curran, Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali in the pack.

Karachi Kings

Karachi Kings are having a season to forget so far as they have lost 5 out of their 7 matches played so far. Their most recent loss was against Peshawar Zalmi by 24 runs. Bowling first Mohammad Amir gave them a fiery start as he demolished the top order and picked up 3 wickets for only 1 run. He was the best bowler for the Kings as he picked up 4 wickets while conceding 26 runs in his 4 overs. Karachi Kings failed to chase down the target of 198 runs and fell short by 24 runs in the process. Opener Matthew Wade scored 53 runs in 41 balls and Imad Wasim remained not out on 57 runs off 30 balls down the order. 

After losing to Peshawar Zalmi in their previous match, Karachi Kings will now take on two-time champions Islamabad United on March 3 at the Pindi Club Ground in Rawalpindi. They have been rather poor so far in the tournament, winning only two of their seven matches and thus, would be desperate to get back into winning ways and eventually qualify for the playoffs.

This will be a very important battle as there are crucial points at stake here. Islamabad have lost only 2 matches so far and will look to bounce back and continue their winning run and good form. We predict that Islamabad United will defeat Karachi Kings in this match. We predict that Islamabad United will defeat Karachi Kings.
