SHARJAH – High-flying Islamabad United will meet desperate Karachi Kings in the 10th encounter of HBL PSL 2017, at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
The match is scheduled to start at 20:00 local time (16:00 GMT | 21:00 PKT).
After their last game against Lahore Qalandars, both Karachi management and the fans will be disappointed by the series of losses. But, for the team at least, there are lots of pluses from the last game.
Their middle order clicked while chasing a big target. Their current captain Kumar Sangakkara and the former captain Shoaib Malik have both hit the form at the right time. Their bowlers presented superb death overs bowling display on a batting-friendly pitch.
While chasing 180 runs at Sharjah, a defeat of thin margin (7 runs) might not earn them the points but have given a lot for the next game to come.
If Karachi Kings go with the same momentum in today’s game against United, there is nothing in the world to deny them a win.
As far as their squad for the all-important game is concerned, they might like to go with the same team they played tonight against Lahore.
