Karachi Kings will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the 19th match of the Pakistan Super League at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on February 17th. Here’re the latest Karachi Kings v Peshawar Zalmi betting tips in this PSL encounter.
The performance of Peshawar Zalmi in the inaugural edition of the PSL has been a stunning one. With five wins in seven matches, they are practically through to the Qualifier stage. The performance of Shahid Afridi has a captain and a player has been particularly impressive.
Their previous match was against Quetta Gladiators, against whom Afridi got his best bowling figures in the tournament.
The Pakistani skipper took an astounding five wickets for just seven runs in four overs. Moreover, with Tamim Iqbal gone from the squad, the English batsman Dawid Malan got a chance to play for the side once again, where he scored 60 runs off 52 deliveries.
Needless to mention, Zalmi won the match comfortably. Having secured a spot in the final four, the team’s coach Andy Flower can now afford to experiment with the playing XI in this game.
As for Karachi Kings, things haven’t gone their way at all in the league. In the seven games they have played, they have won just two matches, which makes this particular match a must win one for them.
However, it is going to be a lot more difficult for them, considering that they haven’t been able to get some traction. They are coming in this match after losing to Islamabad United by five wickets. Prior to that, they had lost to Quetta Gladiators by the exact same figure.
The side has been quite weak in their batting off lately, with Ravi Bopara and Shakib Al Hasan failing to find their form. Interestingly enough, in their first leg of this fixture, Peshawar won by an incredibly close margin of three runs. Kings were chasing a target of 182 runs, to which they came really close. This fixture is surely going to be an intriguing one, and the odds are in the favor of Peshawar Zalmi.
