Islamabad United (ISL) and Karachi Kings (KAR) square off in match 15 of the PSL 2024 at the National Stadium in Karachi on Wednesday, February 28.

The United have only won one game in the tournament, against defending champions Lahore Qalandars. Meanwhile, they are coming off defeats over the Multan Sultans, the Quetta Gladiators, and Peshawar Zalmi, respectively.

Meanwhile, Karachi Kings started with a demoralizing 55-run loss in their opening game before bouncing back with a comprehensive seven-wicket win against Peshawar Zalmi. Shan Masood’s men went on to win against Lahore Qalandars in their last game. They will be high on confidence and will be looking to upset the Islamabad-based franchise in the coming game.

Pitch Report

This will be the first match played at the National Stadium in Karachi in the ongoing PSL. The average first-inning score at this venue has been 181. The pitch in question is expected to assist both the batters and the bowlers alike. The pace and bounce of the wicket tend to decrease as the match progresses.

Though spin bowlers will still have an impact later in the game, the early advantage goes to pace bowlers who can make the most of the pitch conditions. Hence, the team winning the toss should choose to field first, as the pitch conditions in Karachi tend to favour the fast bowlers early on with the new ball.

Probable Playing XIs
Islamabad United:
Colin Munro, Jordan Cox, Agha Salman, Shadab Khan (c), Azam Khan  (wk), Tymal Mills, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Hunain Shah, Haider Ali, Naseem Shah

Shan Masood (c), Muhammad Akhlaq (wk), James Vince, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard, Mohammad Nawaz, Irfan Khan, Daniel Sams, Hasan Ali, Tabraiz Shamsi, Mir Hamza
Probable Best Batter of the match
Agha Salman will be the player to watch out for against Karachi Kings. The right-handed batter has scored 163 runs in four games at an average of 54.33 and a strike rate of 155.23. Notably, Salman has already scored two half-centuries in the ongoing PSL 2024 and will be looking to take his team to a comfortable position. 

Probably the Best Bowler of the match

The experienced campaigner Hasan Ali can prove vital for Karachi’s chances against the United. The right-arm pacer bounced back with two good performances; he picked up two wickets against Lahore Qalandars and a three-for against Peshawar Zalmi after going wicketless in Karachi’s opening encounter against Multan Sultans. Hasan’s performance at the death is going to be very crucial.
