Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi, match 24
Match day: Tuesday
Match Time: 11:00 PM PST, 10:00 PM GMT (local)
Venue: Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium
Pitch and weather report:
In Abu Dhabi, the batsmen and the bowlers are usually equally favored. But what is being analyzed currently from the regular PSL matches, the team that plays best will be the winner.
- The winds will blow around 7-8 km/h
- The humidity is expected to be 65-66%
- As the second match of tonight’s doubleheader will begin at 10:00 PM local, the temperature is supposed to be around 33 degrees celsius and eventually to drop down with the passing hours.
Zalmi have won four out of eight encounters yet. Despite losing the last contest, they seem pretty confident ahead of the remaining matches. However, they may suffer some serious blows as three of their key players will be heading to their respective realms.
On the other hand, the Kings are yet to maintain their momentum in the Karachi leg. Playing two games in the Abu Dhabi leg, the Kings have accomplished none and will be dynamic towards tonight’s triumph. If they succumb, they may need to grapple with the Sultans as both teams will be in a tough competition to get qualified for the playoffs.
