PSL 5 Match 21th: The Karachi Kings began the PSL 2020 using some defeats that pushed them down the points table. But despite both victories, they’re placed fifth at the table with six points. Their next game is from Lahore Qalandars on Saturday in the Gaddafi Stadium.
Additionally, this is the 1st time that the teams could be pitted against each other in Pakistan. The Qalandars obtained a huge boost-up following shooting down defending champions Quetta Gladiators by 37 runs. Another loss could practically knock them out.
The trail in Lahore has not had much for the bowlers, who’ve been taken for a lot thus far. The deck is not expected to change considerably, and another high-scoring appears to be in store in the next of Saturday’s doubleheader. Even though the past two matches went in favor of the group, batting, chasing ought to be the way ahead. The temperature is going to be around 16 degrees Celsius markers.
The Qalandars batting order is to reveal enough consistency. Ben Dunk, Mohammad Hafeez, and Samit Patel have v impressive knocks below their belt. On the other hand, the staff wants more such raps from them. Chris Lynn has jeopardized, but the Queenslander is to demonstrate his right course.
In bowling, Shaheen Afridi did not play the previous match because of a reason. In case the left-arm comes in, then the ax could return to Usman Shinwari, who’s yet to get a wicket in the three matches he’s played. Irshad and Dilbar Hussain have also performed nicely.
Probable XI: Samit Patel, Chris Lynn, Salman Irshad, Salman Butt, Seekkuge Prasanna, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohail Akhtar (C), Ben Dunk (wk), Muhammad Faizan, Usman Shinwari/Shaheen Shah Afridi, Dilbar Hussain
The Kings will be determined by Babar Azam to take them off to a dazzling start. In five games, he’s 187 runs using a couple of half-centuries. Alex Hales has 159 runs in a mean of 39.75. Sharjeel Khan has appeared dangerous, and it is time for him to find a considerable score.
Mohammad Amir and Chris Jordan have seven and eight wickets, respectively. The onus will be about the duo to produce the breakthroughs. Wasim has two or three wickets, but he’s a frugal market rate of 7.33.
Probable XI: Chadwick Walton (wk), Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Chris Jordan, Alex Hales, Iftikhar Ahmed, Cameron Delport, Imad Wasim, Aamer Yamin, Umer Khan
