KK vs PZ Match 2 | PSL 5 Today Match Prediction
HBL PSL, also known as Pakistan Super League will be the fifth official season of this league. This is the T20 franchise league which is officially held by PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board). The first season of the Pak Super League was held in 2015. In all previous seasons, mostly matches were held outside Pakistan. This will be this first time when all matches of PSL will be played within Pakistan.
There are six teams that will be in action throughout the PSL 5. A total of 34 matches will be played in different cities of Pakistan. This will be the second match of Pakistan Super League 5 which will be played between Karachi and Zalmi on February 21, 2020 – 03:00 PM in National Stadium – Karachi.
Today Match Prediction
Karachi Kings Preview:
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.
Peshawar Zalmi Preview:
Peshawar Zalmi is a good team and they won the trophy once in 2017 and their performances in previous Pak Super League were exceptional as well. They also reached the final round but they couldn’t win the trophy.
PZ was eliminated by Quetta in the finals. Like other teams, PZ also did some minor changes to their lineup. But Darren Sammy – like the previous season, will lead Zalmi. Key Players for Peshawar are Imam-ul-Haq, Haider Ali, Adil Amin, and Kamran Akmal.
Who Will Win Today’s Match:
According to our prediction, Karachi Kings seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of Babar Azam and Alex Hales. Both are known as legendary openers of the best innings. Both of them have the ability to create a huge total.
While the presence of Muhammad Amir and Chris Jordan in the bowling lineup of Karachi will help them to defend that total. So KK will win this match from Zalmi with a negotiable margin.
