After an eight-month layoff between league stages and playoffs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PSL is awaited to restart. In the qualifier, the Multan Sultans are ready to take on the Karachi Kings. With some severe all-round results, they were the best team on the league stage. Because of the COVID-19 outbreak earlier this year, they would like to proceed from where they left before the tournament was postponed. While they may not have many major stars like the Kings, the addition of Joe Denly and Brendan Taylor significantly increases their probability.
On the other hand, just below the Sultans, Karachi Kings finished in the second position after the League stage. But without their coach Dean Jones and Pakistan legend Wasim Akram, they are going into this playoffs and will serve as an interim coach for the rest of the tournament. With some seasoned local stars and overseas stars combined, they have the best team on paper.
The weather during the game looks promising. With the temperature being about 30 degrees Celsius during the match time, there is no possibility of precipitation.
In the last five matches contested at the National Stadium in Karachi, the average first innings score was just 150. The pitch is supposed to play real, however, and a running spree may well be on the cards.

In the league stage, Alex Hales and Babar Azam made most of the runs at the top and predicted all the guns to blaze in the playoffs as well. Their bowling attack looks more mature, and with the addition of Wayne Parnell to the team. They will have a little home advantage on their side at the National Stadium, and the expectations are very high on the Kings to go through and win their maiden crown. The Karachi Kings are more likely to win this match. Let’s bet on baji.live now to support your favourite cricket team!
