Cricket Match Preview:

Both teams have fought poor form and injuries at various stages of the tournament and for them to reach this stage is a testimony to their perseverance and determination. While everybody expected Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators to do well, Islamabad United and Karachi Kings slipped under everybody’s radar due to the presence of superstars in teams like Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans.

Islamabad United began well but with only 2 wins out of their last 5 cricket games, they were in real danger of losing out on the semifinal spot. They had lost a few of their players, who helped them win the tournament in the past like Andre Russell and Shane Watson and that put additional pressure on skipper Mohammad Sami and top batsman like Luke Ronchi. Both of them have done a splendid job to take their team this far.

There seemed to be no end to Karachi Kings’ misery in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL). After winning the first cricket game against Multan Sultans, they had lost consecutive cricket games and were in danger of crashing out. However, their win against Quetta Gladiators while chasing 186 runs turned around their campaign. Colin Ingram was the man responsible for that turnaround and he is going to be crucial again in the eliminator.

In the last 5 cricket games between these 2 sides, Islamabad United have had real wood for Karachi Kings. Islamabad emerged as winners on 4 of these cricket games and Karachi Kings will have to do something special to break the rut. For Islamabad, Luke Ronchi has once again begun doing the job for Islamabad United at the top of the order. He has been the prime reason for their success in the past few seasons. Apart from him, Mohammad Sami has been very good at leading the side for Islamabad as well. For Karachi, their steal against Quetta in the last cricket game would have given them a lot of confidence.

Cricket Match Information:

Islamabad United and Karachi Kings will take on each other for the third time in this year’s PSL. Islamabad finished at number 3 spot on the points table after the group stage while Karachi Kings finished at number 4 spot. The winner of this cricket game will take on the loser of the qualifier while the loser of this cricket game will be eliminated.  

Islamabad United

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Islamabad United are being led by fast bowler Mohammad Sami this year. They won 5 cricket games out of 10 group games. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Islamabad United’s playing XI:

  • Luke Ronchi
  • Mohammad Sami
  • Shahdab Khan
  • PD Salt
  • CS Delport
  • Hussain Talat
  • CAK Walton
  • Faheem Ashraf
  • Mohammad Musa
  • Rumman Raees
  • Asif Ali

Karachi Kings

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Karachi Kings are being led by Imad Wasim in this cricket tournament. Karachi Kings had a fantastic win in their second last cricket game. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Karachi Kings’ playing XI:

  • LS Livingstone
  • Babar Azam
  • Iftikhar Ahmed
  • CA Ingram
  • Colin Munro
  • Imad Wasim
  • Ben Dunk
  • Sohail Khan
  • Mohammad Aamir
  • Umer Khan
  • Usman Shinwari

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

CS Delport was outstanding in his last cricket game for Islamabad. It was due to his knock that Islamabad posted the highest ever score in the PSL history in the last cricket game. He is a hard-hitting opening batsman for Islamabad and is going to be one of the reasons for their success. Our prediction is of another good performance from him in the next cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

With short boundaries and a great pitch to bat on, our prediction is of a score of around 200 runs in this cricket game from both teams. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Islamabad United will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have got back the momentum by winning their last 2 cricket games against Karachi Kings. Hence, our prediction is of Islamabad United’s victory in this cricket game.  

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Luke Ronchi (IU) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Faheem Ashraf (IU) – 3 or more wickets
