KAR vs ISL Cricket Betting Tips, Pakistan Super League 2022 Who will win, Pitch & Weather, Today Dream11 Team Prediction
Updated on: Feb 6, 2022 4:56 am IST
KAR vs ISL Prediction: Bottom-placed Karachi Kings will face the third-placed Islamabad United in their first faceoff of the season. Led by Babar Azam, the Karachi-based franchise have tasted nothing but defeat so far in PSL 2022. They’ve lost all four of their matches and one more loss at this stage could very well be the end of their road in the ongoing season. For Islamabad United, the journey has been quite pleasant so far, with 2 wins in 4 games, that include a heart-breaking 8-run defeat in the last outing against the Lahore Qalandars, which could’ve been overturned if not for the lack of scoring at the fag end of the contest.
Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United PSL 2022 Match 14 Details
The 14th match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 will take place at the Karachi Stadium in Karachi on Sunday at 8 PM IST.
As a team, Karachi Kings have been quite disappointing this season, to say the least. Among their batters, Babar Azam has been the lone warrior and even with him performing at the top-order, there needs to be some help from the likes of Sharjeel Khan and Shoaib Maqsood to carry the innings at a decent pace. Among the bowlers, Umaid Asif and Mohammad Nabi have executed their roles well, more so the former, who picked up a 3-wicket haul in the last game and tops the bowling charts for the Kings with 5 scalps to his name while maintaining an economy rate of under 8.00. Imad Wasim, Mohammad Imran and Aamer Yamin have bagged nightmarish figures to their name, something they’d look to improve as a desperate measure starting from this contest.
For Islamabad United, there’s nothing much to worry about. Consistent contributions from the stars in this format, namely Paul Stirling, Alex Hales, Colin Munro and a power-hitter in Azam Khan in the middle-order, could push them to a competitive total. With pacers Waqas Maqsood, Hasan Ali and Mohammad Wasim Jr to go along with the spin duo of Shadab Khan and Mubasir Khan, they could be backing themselves to build momentum and perhaps win it all at the end of the season.
Who will win Pakistan Super League 2022 today match?
KAR vs ISL Head to Head: Islamabad United have a 10-6 record in wins over the Karachi Kings in PSL history. And that includes a 2-1 record in wins at this venue.
Islamabad United have a string of experienced campaigners in their arsenal who are well adept in turning the match in their favor at their behest. Even if a few fire all cylinders, then the chances of a win increases by manifold. Karachi Kings, on the other hand, are blindly reliant on the services of Babar Azam, Umaid Asif and Afghan legend in Mohammad Nabi to row their franchise to their maiden win in the season. Nothing’s worked for the Karachi Kings in the ongoing Pakistan Super League 2022, and thus, it shouldn’t be a surprise for the KAR vs ISL dream11 team prediction to favor two-time PSL champions – Islamabad United.
KAR – 40%
ISL – 60%
Bet 365: KAR – 1.61, ISL – 2.30
KAR vs ISL Dream11 Team Prediction
Troubling signs for Karachi Kings who are still, by far, dependent on their skipper Babar Azam to get their franchise to the shores. The right-hander has been a consistent performer in PSL 2022 and with the team needing his services at this juncture, he could very well be vouched for another decent show. From Islamabad United, the top two candidates who’ve got the potential to render a match-winning show in this fixture would be Shadab Khan and Colin Munro.
