The Lahore Qalandars play the Karachi Kings in the 24th match of the third season of the Pakistan Super League. This game will be played in Dubai on Sunday. The match will begin at 9:00 pm PST (4 pm GMT)
The game everyone wants to watch in the Pakistan Super League is here again, albeit in a situation not too many would have wanted. The Lahore Qalandars and the Karachi Kings will go face to face for the second time in this season and should bring out the best among the Pakistan fans who love these contests, this rivalry between two amazing cities.
However, the issue for the fans is that one of the sides is already out of the competition. Yep, the Lahore Qalandars have been knocked out of the competition and their only role in the tournament now is to make life difficult for the other teams. That said, Lahore would also want to win a few games to go into the fourth season with some confidence.
The Qalandars are coming into this game with a win under their belt. It was a special victory because it was their not just their first victory of the season but also the first in eight games they have played, including two last season.
Lahore managed to insert the Multan Sultans in to bat, and restricted them to 114 before making heavy weather of chasing it down – winning it in the 19th over only. The good thing was they did not collapse the way they have done all season and they can have their captain Brendon McCullum to thank for that.
Karachi Kings are currently third in the points table, having finally registered a win after a few off-colour games. And rather interestingly, the team they also defeated was Multan Sultans. The Kings registered a crushing win over Multan Sultans in that game, winning by 63 runs.
Batting first, the Kings piled up 188, thanks to fifties from Joe Denly and Babar Azam, with Colin Ingram smashing an eight-ball 29. And the bowling was a concerted effort, with Mohammad Irfan jr. picking up a couple and Shahid Afridi ending with 3/18 from four overs.
As things stand for the Karachi Kings, they need just one more win from their remaining three matches to make the playoffs. On the other hand, it is not just going to remain at finishing in the top four, but also wanting to end up in the top two as they look to get a second chance for qualifying for the final. Crucial game in that respect. Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars 24th match prediction, betting tips & preview are placed below.
