Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars Prediction

KAR vs LAH T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, PSL 2024

Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars go head to head in Match 26 of the Pakistan Premier League in Karachi on Saturday evening. The Kings have six points from eight games and are in fifth with the Qalandars bottom of the table in sixth with only one win from eight fixtures! Read on as we preview this match. The game begins at 19:00 local time at the National Stadium on March 9th.

Karachi Kings have won only one of their last five games but have beaten Lahore Qalandars already in this tournament. The Qalandars will probably be tougher opposition than they would have been before their victory in their last game but Karachi should still have enough to win.

Lahore Qalandars finally got their first victory of the tournament in Match 23 against Islamabad United on Thursday. They will now travel from Rawalpindi to Karachi for this game looking to make it two from two but they are up against an equally hungry Karachi Kings who need a victory themselves.

This is another good batting wicket and whoever bats first will need to make 180+ to be competitive. We also expect some bounce and turn for the spinners.

According to the forecast it will be a cloudy evening in Karachi on Saturday. It will be warm and the humidity level will increase across the game but won’t go beyond 40%.

Karachi Kings Team News & Playing 11

KAR Team News

Some pundits thought that Leus du Plooy could come back into the Karachi Kings side ahead of the last match and we expect him to push James Vince hard for a place in the side for this game. There are no injury worries for the Kings ahead of this clash.

KAR Key Players

  • Kieron Pollard – The vastly experienced and powerful all-rounder has finished not out on three occasions in this tournament and is the leading run scorer for the Kings ahead of this match.
  • Tim Seifert – The T20 specialist keeper-batter has not been particularly consistent but comes into this game after making 75 runs across his last two innings combined.
  • Mir Hamza – The 31 year old left-arm medium pacer picked up three key wickets – Colin Munro, Alex Hales and Shadab Khan – in the last game.
  • Blessing Muzarabani – The tall Zimbabwean added another wicket to his tally in the last game and he will enjoy the pace and bounce on offer in Karachi.

David Wiese came back into Lahore Qalandars’ XI for the last game and, just as his captain Shaheen Shah Afridi said at the toss, the Namibian all-rounder makes most teams stronger. After finally winning, we expect the team to be unchanged for Saturday’s game in Karachi.
