Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi (KK vs PZ) preview is placed here. Karachi Kings play the Peshawar Zalmi in their Pakistan Super League Qualifier on Friday, March 3. This game will be played in Dubai before the action moves to Lahore in Pakistan for the grand finale. This game will kick start at 8 pm local time (4 pm GMT or 9 pm Pakistan time).

After the kind of start they had, not too many would have expected the Karachi Kings to be a win away from making the title-decider. In fact even in their previous Eliminator game, a knock-out against the defending champions Islamabad United, not too many would have given them a chance to win the game after they were bowled out for what seemed a sub-par score.

Unfortunately for their opponents, that score of 126 proved to be a lot more than the United could manage – a good 44 runs more than they could – and what that did was to put the Kings through to this third qualifying game.

The stars of the game for the Karachi Kings were Imad Wasim and Usama Mir, the two spinners who shared six wickets between them at the expense of just 42 from their eight overs. This was during the middle phase of the Islamabad innings and at a time where just a couple of huge overs would have finished off the Kings.

They now take on the Zalmis who would have had three days to lick their wounds following a hard-to-fathom defeat. There were obvious struggles in their chase of 201 but on a flat surface they should have won the game easily once the required runs were down to 15 from the final 12 deliveries of the game with half their side still to bat.

Shahid Afridi was still at the crease which meant they had a settled batsman around. A six off the third ball of that over meant Peshawar needed eight from the final nine deliveries – not a target that should have worried the Zalmis too much. And then hell broke loose.

First Afridi played a daft shot to get out, and then with two needed from the final three deliveries but with Darren Sammy off-strike, the Zalmis lost three wickets from three balls to surrender the encounter by 1 run.

Question now is whether the Zalmis would have recovered from that encounter or will the confidence of Karachi prove to be too much for them anyway.
