Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi Preview

Both sides lost their opening game of the season and are down in fifth and sixth place on the table. The Kings will be relying on James Vince to hit his best form and for Shoaib Malik to continue his form from the opening match. Zalmi have a powerful batting line-up headed by the in-form Babar Azam.

  • Peshawar Zalmi’s Babar Azam has scored 62, 37, 47, 47 & 68 in his last 5 innings.
  • Peshawar Zalmi’s Saim Ayub scored 42 off 26 balls in the loss to the Gladiators.
  • Karachi Kings’  Shoaib Malik scored 53 off 35 balls in their opening loss to the Sultans.

Pashawar Zalmi have won the last five meetings between the two sides.

Karachi Kings Form

The Kings suffered a 55-run loss to the Sultans in their opening match. 

The Sultans batters were on song as they smashed 185/2 off their 20 overs. Mir Hamza (1/30) was the pick of the Kings bowlers.

The Kings struggled to keep up with the asking rate, falling 55 runs short at the end of their 20 overs, despite a superb knock from Shoaib Malik (53 off 35 balls). 

Karachi Kings Team News

Karachi Kings need to improve their batting and bowling but are unlikely to make changes to their squad after just one match.

Peshawar Zalmi Form

Zalmi out in a strong performance in their opening match but were unable to overturn a strong Gladiators side.

The Gladiators piled on 206/5 off their 20 overs, despite a superb performance with the ball from Salman Irshad (3/38).

Zalmi Babar Azam (68 off 42) and Saim Ayub (42 off 26) got Zalmi off to a great start but the middle order couldn’t see them through to the win, falling 16 runs short. 

Peshawar Zalmi Team News

Peshawar Zalmi are in good form and are unlikely to make any changes to their team.


I am backing Peshawar Zalmi to win. I am also backing Babar Azam to top score for Peshawar Zalmi.

Shoaib Malik is a good bet to top score for the Karachi Kings, while Kieron Pollard is a favourite to top the six-hitting in the match.
