TOSS

Karachi Kings won the toss and elected to bowl first

Karachi Kings will face Lahore Qalandars in the second leg of the PSL 4 at Dubai on Thursday, where they will look to regain their winning groove to advance in the tournament.

Kings have so far showed glimpses of brilliance against Multan Sultans, Quetta Gladiators and in other encounters which ended in a losing cause. However, if they still manage to recompose themselves, they can do well in the campaign.

On the other hand, Lahore Qalandars, after suffering a streak of defeats, seem to have got their winning instinct as they knocked down Multan Sultans in a thrilling contest chasing down 201, while crushing Quetta Gladiators in a one-sided contest.

They also got the better of Karachi Kings in their first meeting of the fourth edition of the PSL, so they will be confident ahead of the contest. Whereas, Qalandars must be wary of Karachi Kings’ strength, which they show against Gladiators.
