The Probable Playing XIs

Islamabad United bowlers did a tremendous job against the Quetta in their last game, especially Mohammad Wasim, Musa, and Akif along with Hasan Ali. They will likely stick to the same side with their batting also coming good.

Despite a loss against Multan, Karachi Kings might play the same team. However, except for Babar and Walton, no other batsman contributed significantly. Also, bowlers, except for Thisara Perera, were not up to the mark.

Karachi Kings– Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Martin Guptill, Chadwick Walton(WK), Najibullah Zadran, Thisara Perera, Imad Wasim(C), Qasim Akram, Mohammad Amir, Waqas Maqsood, Arshad Iqbal

Islamabad United– Colin Munro, Usman Khawaja, Shadab Khan(C), Asif Ali, Rohail Nazir(WK), Hussain Talat, Iftikhar Ahmed, Hasan Ali, Musa Khan, Mohammad Wasim, Akif Javed

Match Prediction

Islamabad United must be high on confidence after a dominating win but they have played 3 games in 4 days which could drain them a lot. Also, Karachi is a good side, so expect them to make a comeback.

Fantasy Tips

Batsman– Babar Azam has been one of the world’s best batsman in this format for some time now and was the leading run-getter in the last season. He was the lone warrior in the last game as well for Karachi. So he is a must in the fantasy XI. Colin Munro is a dashing batsman at the top, and we saw his impact in the last game. Sharjeel Khan and one of Khawaja/ Guptill can be selected.

Wicket-Keeper– Chadwick Walton played a great cameo in the last game and he can be the lone keeper of the team.

All-rounders– Hussain Talat is a decent player who can contribute in all departments while select Perera for his experience.

Bowlers– Mohammad Amir had a bad outing in the 1st game, but he is a quality bowler not to come back. Young pacers from either team Waqas Maqsood and Mohammad Wasim, can be selected based on their last match performances. Hasan Ali is another senior bowler who can be picked.

Captaincy choices

Team for fantasy:  Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Colin Munro, Usman Khawaja, Chadwick Walton, Thisara Perera, Hussain Talat, Waqas Maqsood, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Wasim, Hasan Ali

Captain- Babar Azam

Babar Azam is a class act at the top of the order in T20s. So he can be made the skipper of your fantasy side.

Vice-Captain– Colin Munro

Munro scored an entertaining 36-ball 90 against Quetta which sealed the match for Islamabad United by 10 wickets. He can be the Vice-Captain on the back of this performance.
