Karachi Kings Preview
Following a close loss to Peshawar Zalmi in their season opener, Karachi Kings suffered a 4 wicket loss against Islamabad United in their subsequent match. When invited to bat first, Karachi Kings put 173 on the board at the National Stadium in Karachi on a favorable batting surface. Peshawar lost 6 wickets while chasing the mark in 18.2 overs. The best score for Karachi came from Haider Ali, who scored 59 off 45 balls. Sadly, the other batters didn’t step up.
Quetta Gladiators Preview
The Quetta Gladiators’ PSL 2023 season got off to the worst conceivable start. Quetta was bowled out for just 110 in 19 overs after being chosen to bat first against Multan Sultans on a favourable wicket at the Multan Cricket Stadium. The target was then easily reached by Multan in 13.3 overs. Only the opener, Jason Roy, seemed like he would get runs (27 off 18 balls). It was a terrible batting performance. In his most recent seven games, Roy has scored 330 runs at an average of 47.14 and a strike rate of 168.36. Hum is going to take a massive hit.
The Karachi National Stadium’s surface is known to be ideal for batting, with a consistent bounce that holds throughout the 40 overs. The venue favors batsmen, and bowlers need to maintain tight lines to prevent conceding too many runs. The team that wins the toss and elects to bat first should aim to set a target of around 190-200 runs.
