Peshawar Zalmi will take on Karachi Kings in the 24th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover PES vs KAR Dream11 Team Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Zalmi is in a decent position as they have won four out of the eight matches and are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with eight points. The bowlers did not perform well in the last game, and as a result, they lost by eight wickets.
Kamran Akmal is back in form and scoring runs consistently from the last couple of matches, and Haider Ali also scored runs but batted very slow. At No.3, Shoaib Malik got out early without scoring much in the last two games.
David Miller also provides good support in the middle-order, but Rovman Powell has not been consistent so far. Sherfane has played some decent innings so far and scored a fifty in the last match, but Fabian Allen has failed as a finisher.
The bowlers who had done a decent job were entirely out of rhythm in the last match. Even the most consistent wicket-taker, Wahab, also went wicketless. Irfan has been picking up wickets consistently from the previous few games.
Peshawar Zalmi needs to win at least a match in the remaining two games to ensure a spot in the playoffs.
Karachi Kings are in a tricky situation as they have won three out of the seven matches and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with six points. They faced disappointment in the last game as they lost by eight wickets.
Sharjeel Khan batted well in the matches played in Pakistan but is struggling to continue the form in Abu Dhabi. But Babar Azam is in the form of his life and has scored the fifties in three consecutive matches. At No.3, Martin Guptill has not been able to achieve much so far in this season.
Najibullah has been excellent in the middle-order and scored fifty in the last match. Chadwick Walton is also doing his role perfectly, but Thisara Perera is struggling with the bat. Imad Wasim has also not done much with the bat this season.
The bowlers have been very poor in their performance this season and have been the primary reason for the losses of KAR. Mohammad Amir has been wicketless in most of the matches. Waqas Maqsood and Abbas Afridi managed to pick up a wicket in the last game.
Karachi Kings cannot afford to lose any more matches and need to start winning, or else there is a chance that might not qualify for playoffs.
