Shoaib Malik’s Karachi Kings will qualify for the play off stage if they manage to beat Shahid Afridi’s Peshawar Zalmi side.
If the Karachi side loses today, their fate will rest on the result of today’s second match between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United.
However, if both sides lose their respective matches then Karachi Kings will progress to the play off stage as they had beaten Lahore Qalandars in round robin stages.
Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars are at fourth and fifth place in the points table respectively. Both teams have four points after winning two of their seven games each.
Shoaib Malik’s team are practicing hard in order to ensure their place in the last four stage of the competition and will work hard not to repeat the mistakes of their previous matches and to bounce back to reach the last four stage.
Karachi Kings will go head to head against Peshawar Zalmi at 4.00 pm whereas Lahore Qalandars face Islamabad United at 9.00 pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
