KAR vs LAH Match Preview
The second match of Thursday’s doubleheader and overall 27th match in PSL 2021 will be played between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. This will be the second time both teams will face each other in the ongoing season.
The last time when the Qalandars and the Kings met at National Stadium in Karachi, the Qalandars emerged victorious by 6 wickets in a thrilling chase of 187 runs.
The Lahore based team will be looking to replicate the same in Abu Dhabi on Thursday and get back to their winning track.
Lahore Qalandars, who are currently placed at the third spot in the points table, have suffered back-to-back loss over Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators recently in the tournament.
Karachi Kings, on the other hand, are having a forgetful season so far. They have lost all their games in the UAE leg and now they need to win both their remaining games in order to fancy their chances to the knockout stage.
Although Babar Azam is currently the highest scorer of the tournament, the rest of their players are yet to step up with consistent performances.
Their bowling has also not been up to the mark, with a lot depending on Mohammad Amir ahead of the match. With both sides eyeing a crucial win at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, we should be in for an entertaining PSL 2021 game tomorrow.
