ISL vs KAR Dream11 Prediction: 22nd Match, PSL 2021
Islamabad United and Karachi Kings will play against each other in the 22nd match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover ISL vs KAR Dream11 Team Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Islamabad United has been brilliant so far as they have won five out of the seven matches and are currently at the top of the points table. The bowlers and the lower-middle order batsmen did an excellent job in the last game, and as a result, they won by 28 runs.
The openers Khawaja and Munro, after a brilliant performance, got out cheaply in the last match. Rohail Nazir, Shadab Khan, and Hussain Talat are still struggling to score runs, putting a lot of pressure on the other players.
Iftikhar Ahmed and Asif Ali batted brilliantly in the lower-middle order scoring 49 runs and 75 runs, respectively, and helped the team reach a defendable total. The bowling department is also doing well even though their star performer Hasan Ali is no longer part of the team for the rest of the season.
Muhammad Musa bowled well and picked up three wickets. Skipper Shadab and Fawad Ahmed managed to pick up two wickets each, and Ali Khan picked up one wicket.
They would want to continue dominance for the rest of the matches and stay on top of the points table.
Karachi Kings have performed moderately well as they have won three out of the six games and are currently at the 4th position on the points table. However, they had to face disappointment in the last match as they lost by 12 runs.
Opener Sharjeel Khan has scored a good amount of runs but has lacked consistency, but his partner, Babar Azam, has been in sublime form and scored 85* runs from 63 balls in the last match but couldn’t win it. Martin Guptill batted at No.3 in his first match of the season but scored runs very slowly.
In the middle-order, Najibullah Zadran and Chadwick Walton played their first match and scored some quick runs. However, they need a good finisher, so Imad Wasim and Thisara Perera need to step up their batting performance and give good finishes.
The bowlers’ struggle continues in picking up the wickets and controlling the flow of runs. Thisara Perera picked up two wickets in the last match. Imad Wasim and Waqas Maqsood managed to pick up one wicket each.
Karachi Kings would be hoping to win the remaining matches and turn around a few things for them.
