Pakistan Super League 2023 will have two fixtures on Sunday. In the second fixture of the day, Karachi Kings will come face-to-face with Lahore Qalandars. The game is scheduled to take place at National Stadium Karachi and both teams will be motivated to score a win to improve their position in the point table.
KRK had a disappointing start to the new season of the Pakistan Super League. They have lost both games and have a net run rate of -0.585. Top bookmakers in India are out with some fancy odds for PSL.
LHQ are coming to play their second game in the tournament. They started on a positive note by defeating the table-toppers Multan Sultans in the first game.
Lahore Qalanders won’t face any trouble in winning the fixture against Karachi Kings
The betting tip is...
Fakhar Zaman to score fifty plus
The nightmare of Karachi Kings is not coming to end from the past few seasons of the Pakistan Super League. They have again come across as a weak team in the tournament and they have already lost two fixtures. Karachi Kings have a good batting depth in the team but their weakness is their poor bowling performance. Bowlers are unable to get early breakthroughs and break the partnerships of the opposite team.
Karachi Kings will have to tinker with their line-up now as they are looking to open the account this season.
Predicted Lineup: James Vince, Sharjeel Khan, Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Matthew Wade (wk), Imad Wasim (c), Irfan Khan, James Fuller, Andrew Tye, Muhammad Musa, Mohammad Amir
Lahore Qalandars have shown stability in their playing XI by scoring a thrilling win in a high-pressure game against Multan Sultans. With Fakhar Zaman and Mirza Tahir Baig as the starting pair, the Qalandars have built a strong opening partnership. Sikander Raza is handling the middle order and he is expected to do well in the team. Skipper Shaheen Afridi will be leading the team toward a positive outcome in the second fixture.
Lahore Qalandars have their best possible playing XI and they won’t be making any changes to the team.
Predicted Lineup: Sikandar Raza, Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Zaman Khan, Tahir Baig, Hussain Talat, Shaheen Afridi, Liam Dawson, David Wiese, Haris Rauf, Shai Hope
We expect a one-sided fixture where Lahore Qalanders will register a comfortable win against Karachi Kings. Lahore are a force to reckon with this season while KRK are looking in a sorry state.
