We are posting safe, accurate, and secure today match prediction and dream11 fantasy team of PSL T20.
PSL 2023 T20 4th Match Overview
We had seen exciting matches in this season of the Pakistan Super League. Two opening matches had been very interesting where the winning margin was just one run in the first match and two runs in the second match. The most recent match of Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators was one-sided where Multan Sultans won by a big margin of nine wickets. Karachi Kings had a decent match against Peshawar Zalmi even though they were on the losing side.
Karachi Kings showed its batting power in the first match where they scored near about 200 runs. They are playing with aggression and we are sure that they will give a tough time almost all teams in this tournament. Islamabad United going to play their first match of this season in the Pakistan Super League. Islamabad United qualified for the playoff of the previous edition of PSL. They won just four out of ten league matches. They were equal in the points with Quetta Gladiators but due to a better net run rate, they moved to the playoff.
Karachi Kings Previews
Karachi Kings are a strong team and they proved this in their very first match against Peshawar Zalmi. They lost the match but it is also a fact that they performed well. They decided to field first after winning the toss but this decision did not prove right. This was a strange decision in our opinion as Karachi is a high-scoring venue and having a big total on the board is always a big advantage. The bowling unit of Karachi Kings failed to perform well and leaked 199 runs in 20 overs. The bowling unit of Karachi Kings is strong and is led by Mohammad Amir, Mir Hamza, Andrew Tye, Imran Tahir, and Imad Wasim. Mir Hamza was the only successful bowler in the previous match with one wicket to his name in two overs against 13 runs.
Andrew Tye, Imran Tahir, and Ben Cutting picked one wicket each in the previous match. Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket. Mohammad Amir is an experienced bowler but he leaked a lot of runs in the previous match. He was charged with 42 runs in four overs. Imad Wasim also failed to give the best bowling performance and leaked 42 runs in three overs. The batting order of Karachi Kings performed well and scored 197 runs while chasing the target of 200 runs. Matthew Wade and Sharjeel Khan are opening the batting inning for the Kings but both batsmen failed to provide a good opening start. Haider Ali and Qasim Akram also failed to perform well. The batting performance of the skipper, Imad Wasim was just outstanding. He was the most successful and highest run-scorer with 80 runs to his name on 47 balls with the help of seven boundaries and four huge sixes. He remained not out till the 20th over. Shoaib Malik also performed well with the bat and scored 52 runs. He faced 34 balls and smashed four boundaries and two huge sixes.
Islamabad United Previews
Islamabad United reached to the playoff of the 7th edition of the Pakistan Super League. They won the eliminator match against Peshawar Zalmi but lost the qualifier 2 match against Lahore Qalandars by a very close margin. They had made some interesting changes to their squad for this tournament. Shadab Khan had been leading Islamabad United for some previous seasons and he will also be leading in this season of PSL. The top batting order of Islamabad United is very strong and experienced. Alex Hales, Sohaib Maqsood, and Asif Ali are the leading batsmen of the top order. Alex Hales had been in good form since World Cup. He continued his good form in the recent edition of BBL.
Asif Ali had been part of Islamabad United since their first match but his form has a big question mark on it. He totally failed to give the best performance in BBL but we are expecting that he will get some good form in home conditions. Some best batting all-rounders of T20 cricket had joined Islamabad United. Paul Stirling, Colin Munro, Mubasir Khan, and Moeen Ali, are the leading batting all-rounders of Islamabad United. Azam Khan had been in superb form in a recent tournament. His performance was just outstanding in the recent season of BPL. Rahmanullah Gurbaz is also part of the batting squad of Islamabad United. The bowling unit of this team is good but we can’t say it very strong. Zeeshan Zameer, Rumman Raees, Hasan Ali, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Abrar Ahmad are the leading bowlers of Islamabad United.
