Karachi Kings Vs Islamabad United, 28th Match Prediction 2020| Who Will Win today Match | KAR vs ISL | Pakistan Super League 2020
Date and Time: March 14th, 7:30 P.M IST
Venue: National Stadium, Karachi
As the Pakistan Super League 2020 moves towards the business end, the war on the points table has just picked up. Karachi Kings would feel good though, knowing that they have still two matches left. This is a perfect opportunity for them to elevate from their second-place to the top. Islamabad United though don’t have a lot to think. They have to win this match and then wait for the rest of the results.
Under the leadership of Shadab Khan, who has rediscovered himself as an all-rounder, Islamabad has looked strong but only in parts. Them coming together and moving as a strong team, which was Islamabad’s game in the first few seasons, hasn’t really found a place this year. They would still depend on their batting to get to whatever place possible to at least have a chance for qualification.
Moving to the Karachi Kings led by Imad Wasim ticked all boxes in the previous match. Restricting Lahore to a small score and then clinching a 10-wicket win would have given them a lot of confidence going into the business end of the league.
Pitch and Weather Conditions News:
Karachi Kings defeated the Lahore Qalandars in the last match played at this venue. The pitch in that match felt a little double-paced. In the first innings, ball held up into the surface but batting became exceedingly easy as the second innings. Maybe it was some good batting display from Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan, but surely the authenticity of the Karachi wicket being batting-friendly is still intact.
The weather in Karachi, unlike other venues, has allowed the matches of the tournament to be conducted properly. As Kings and United meet again, the weather won’t be a problem. No rain is expected according to the AccuWeather. The temperatures could go down to 18 degrees during the evening.
