SHARJAH – Karachi Kings have won the toss and opted to bowl first against in the tenth game of HBL PSL 2017, at the Sharjah Cricket Ground, Sharjah.
Kings skipper Sangakkara won the toss and sent United to bat.
“There’s rain around, let’s see how it goes. The wicket looks a bit different to the usual Sharjah pitch. Let’s hope the bowlers can do well and keep them to a low total. We’ve kept Sohail Khan out and we’ve brought in a left-arm spinner,” Kumar Sangakkara says.
“Also planning to bowl because of the weather, you never know how many overs you have,” Misbah-ul-Haq says. “You have to make decisions in the middle, obviously you have plans, but it’s the decisions in the middle. Two changes, Saeed Ajmal back and so is Imran Khalid”
