Karachi Kings Vs Quetta Gladiators, 30th Match Prediction 2020| Who Will Win today Match | KAR vs QUE | Pakistan Super League 2020
Date and Time: March 15th, 7:30 P.M IST
Venue: National Stadium, Karachi
It’s the last game of the league stage and it’s Karachi Kings facing the Quetta Gladiators. The former have qualified for semi-finals while Quetta Gladiators are still in with a chance. They need to win this game and hope that Lahore Qalandars lose their game against Multan Sultans. That way will give them a direct entry at the fourth spot in the semi-finals. Else, they will have to beat Karachi Kings by a huge margin in order to get their net run rate which is -1.052 over Peshawar Zalmi’s -0.055.
At the moment, Karachi Kings are building some nice momentum into the knockouts. They’ve won their last two games and that was on the back of collective bowling performances. Their top-order batting has done well too. Hence, they are looking decent shape ahead of the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Peshawar Zalmi’s last game was washed out without a ball being bowled. However, they’ve lost four games in a row before that. And each of them were by comprehensive margins. But the last time they faced Karachi Kings, they won by five wickets as they chased down 157 with an over to spare. It’s the batting that largely hasn’t stood up and delivered and they will want them to step up in this big game.
Pitch and Weather Conditions News:
It may be mostly cloudy in Karachi but there is no chance of rain. The pitch here in the last few games has been slightly on the slower side and 150-160 has been the par. Karachi Kings have had two successful sub-160 chases. Thus, both teams will want to field first if they win the toss.
