PSL 2020: Race to the semis heats up as Karachi Kings face Islamabad United

By

With only a few league games left, the situation in the Pakistani Premier League is heating up and tonight host King Karachi will play against Islamabad United at the National Stadium.

For the kings, this game is just as important as their qualification to the semi-finals. The game led by Imad Wasim is currently in second place in the rankings with 9 points.

For Manchester United, who have won twice, if they want to have the chance to advance to the semi-finals, this match will be a success or failure.

The Kings showed a great performance against Lahore Callandas in the previous game, but due to the country’s corona virus, Alex Hales flew back to the Kings, giving them a heavy blow.

On the other hand, Islamabad has a chaotic game, with only 7 out of 9 games left to score 7 points. The team, led by Shadab Khan, won three games and lost five, while one game was halted without pitching.

The king will again give hope to Babar Azam, the king of hope. Among bowlers, Mohammad Amir led with 10 wickets in eight games.

For Manchester United, goalkeeper Batman Luke Ronchi is the 266th highest scoring player in eight games, with team leaders Shadab Khan and Colin Munro. They were all shortlisted from a significant total. Among bowers, Faheem Ashraf scored seven wickets from six games.

The two teams met in Rawalpindi on March 1 and the Kings defeated five wickets to beat Manchester United.
