This season seems to be successful till now and through this season of Pakistan Super League, we can warmly welcome the international cricket back in Pakistan after so many years.

Today Match Prediction
Karachi Kings Preview:
The position of Karachi Kings is not good in this season. They are in the 5th position in the points table of PSL T20 2020. They have a net run rate of -0.868.
As far as the earlier track record of Karachi Kings is concerned, they couldn’t be able to win the PSL trophy in any of the previous seasons. They were kicked out of the trophy-race in eliminator rounds in previous seasons. Maybe this is the main reason that they have to make big changes in their squad and in the management team as well.

This time the changes seem to be beneficial for Kings. Imad Wasim will be leading KK in this particular season. They made exceptional changes in the top-line batting order. Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Awais Zia, and Alex Hales will open the innings for Karachi.

Islamabad United Preview:

The performance of United was satisfactory throughout the PSL seasons. They performed well in all seasons of the Pakistan Super League. But this time they seem a bit unbalanced.

Some key and game-changer players for Islamabad United are Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Colin Munro, and Luke Ronchi. These will be the match-winning players for Islamabad United. But their start of the PSL 2020 is not good as they lost the opening match despite getting control of the match in both innings.
PSL 2020 Performance
Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans 5th T20 was won by Islamabad. Multan made 164. Zeeshan Ashraf was the top scorer with 50*. Amad Butt took 4/27. United chased the target in 16.4 Overs with Ronchi’s 74and Munro’s 50. Luke Ronchi was player of the match.
Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators 9th T20 was won by Quetta. Islamabad made 187 runs but Quetta achieved the target with quite an ease. Ben Cutting was awarded by the man of match award due to his fabulous performance.
Who Will Win Today’s Match:
According to our prediction, IU will beat KK in this round because Islamabad seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of Colin Munro and Luke Ronchi. Colin Munro is in great form these days. Both are known as excellent openers of the T20 innings. Both of them have the ability to create a huge total.
Shadab Khan is a world-class spin bowler. The IU bowlers have the ability to defend the totals. So IU will win this match from Karachi with a negligible margin. Almost all of the athletes from Islamabad United are performing consistently and giving their best for their team. We can easily expect their victory in this match.
Today Match & Toss Predictions
Toss will play a vital role in today’s contest. According to trendeetalk.com, the team who will win the toss today will choose to bowl first because it’s not a batting-first condition in Rawalpindi. So batting first will increase the winning chances for the bowling team. Toss winning team should opt to bowl first.
There will be a number of clouds during the match time in Rawalpindi. These days the weather isn’t great for cricket in Pindi. While the temperature will be between 13 and 26-degree celsius. So the weather will interfere with the gameplay a little bit. There will be humidity in the air as well.
