Date and Time: March 8th, 2:30 P.M IST
Venue: Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi
We are heading to the business end of the tournament. While three teams have four games each left, the other three teams have just two games left. Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings are among the three that have played only six games. Both of those teams are in the bottom half of the table.
Lahore Qalandars lost three games in a row to start their campaign for the 2020 season. However, they are suddenly looking good at the moment. They have registered a couple of comprehensive wins over Quetta Gladiators which will give them confidence. They might be at the bottom of the points table but only a couple of wins away from entering the top three or top four.
Meanwhile, Karachi Kings have been building some nice momentum in the last few games. After beating Peshawar Zalmi in their first game, the Kings lost a couple of games on the bounce before winning two on the trot. And just when they were in a good position against the Multan Sultans, rain played spoilsport. Thus, with seven points, they are currently fourth. A win in this game could even take them to the second spot.
