Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United Predictions

After losing their opener against the Sultans, the Kings won back-to-back victories over Zalmi and the Qalandars to rise to fourth in the table. Islamabad are one spot off the bottom of the table after winning their opening match, only to lose their next three matches on the bounce.

Karachi Kings Form

The Kings went two wins on the bounce when they beat the Lahore Qalandars by two wickets off the last ball of the match.

The Qalandars posted 175/6 off their 20 overs, Hasan Ali (2/29) returning the best figures with the ball.

The Kings were 4/44 after six overs before a 95-run partnership between Shoaib Malik (39) and Kieron Pollard (58 off 33 balls) kept them on track to pull off a thrilling win off the last ball.

Karachi Kings Team News

There are no injury reports from the Karachi Kings squad.

Islamabad United Form

Islamabad suffered their third loss in a row when they went down to Peshawar Zalmi by eight runs. Zalmi racked up 201/5 off 20 overs, Shadab Khan (2/28) performing the best with the ball for Islamabad.

Islamabad recovered from 73/3 in the 10th over with a 108-run partnership for the fourth wicket between Azam Khan (75 off 30) and Colin Munro (71 off 53) that took them to the brink of victory. 

The Zalmi bowlers then turned the match on its head by dismissing both batters off consecutive deliveries and knocking over five batters for two runs as Islamabad’s chase fell agonisingly short.

Islamabad United Team News

Islamabad’s batters have been making runs, but they will be hoping for a tighter performance from their bowlers.


I am backing Karachi Kings to win. I am also backing Kieron Pollard to top score for Karachi Kings.

Azam Khan is a good bet to top score for the Islamabad United.
