The 14th match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 will have Karachi Kings take on Islamabad United at National Stadium in Karachi on Sunday. For Karachi Kings, it has been a disastrous PSL 2022 campaign thus far.

IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction

They have lost all four matches played in the tournament and thus are languishing at the bottom of the points table.

Karachi Kings needs to quickly turn their fortune around or else, their hopes of reaching the top-four might come to an end soon. Karachi Kings are coming into the game on the back of a 9-run defeat at the hands of Peshawar Zalmi.

Once again, they exhibited a lackluster performance with the ball. Barring U Asif, no one build pressure on the opposition. Asif picked 3 wickets for 36 runs in 4 overs. The likes of I Wasim (0 for 30), L Gregory (0 for 10 in 4 overs) and M Imran (0 for 40) all had forgettable outings with the ball.

In reply, Karachi lost both Sharjeel Khan and Sahibzada Farhan for ducks. However, Babar Azam played a wonderful knock of 90 runs in 63 balls, including 12 fours and 1 six. Ian Cockbain played a good little cameo of 31 runs in 19 deliveries.

However, once he got out, Babar Azam received little support from the other batsmen. In the end, Karachi fell 9 runs short of the target. Heading into their fifth match of the tournament, they would look to register their first win this season.

Facing them are Islamabad United, who have played great cricket so far. After losing their second game, Islamabad United bounced back strongly with a 43-run win over Quetta Gladiators. With that win, they have moved to number two position on the points table with 2 wins in 3 matches.

Islamabad United put an exhibition of sixes in their last game against Quetta Gladiators. Barring Shadab Khan, all the batsmen in the top-five made significant contributions with the bat. Paul Sterling made 58 off just 28 balls, while his partner Alex Hales also played a good little cameo of 22 runs in 9 deliveries.

Later, Colin Munro and Azam Khan wreaked havoc with the bat. The duo ripped apart Gladiators’ bowling unit with some sensational power-hitting display. Munro smacked 72 runs in 39 deliveries, while Azam Khan managed to score 65 runs in 35 deliveries, including 2 fours and 6 sixes. Thanks to all those contributions, Islamabad United put on a mammoth score of 229 runs in the first innings.

They, later, bundled out Quetta Gladiators for 186 runs in the second innings. Shadab Khan ran through the opposition’s batting unit as he picked 5 wickets for 28 runs in 4 overs. Hasan Ali and M Wasim Jr. also picked two wickets each. Heading into their fourth match, they would look to continue the winning momentum.
