KK vs LQ Team Previews

Karachi Kings

The Karachi Kings have managed to win only 3 of the 8 matches played so far. They will now have to both their upcoming games to keep their qualification hopes alive.

The Karachi Kings’ batting has been rather inconsistent this season. Tim Seifert and Shan Masood have failed to give the team a stable start on most occasions and that has put increased pressure on the middle order. While Kieron Pollard, James Vince, and Shoaib Malik have played well in patches, it hasn’t nearly been enough for the team to win matches.

Also, the team lacks depth in its batting. Coming to the bowling, Hasan Ali has been the pick of the bowlers with 13 wickets. He, along with Mir Hamza makes for a strong new-ball attack, with Blessing Muzarabani chipping in.

Zahid Mahmood is the full-time spinner on the team who will be helped by Mohammad Nawaz and Shoaib Malik.

James Vince, Tim Seifert, Shan Masood, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard, Irfan Khan, Anwar Ali, Hasan Ali, Arafat Minhas, Zahid Mahmood, Blessing Muzarabani.

Lahore Qalandars

The defending champions are just a shadow of what they were in the last season. With just 3 points from 8 matches, the Qalandars are already eliminated from the race to the playoffs.

Barring Rassie van der Dussen and Sahibzada Farhan, none of the batters have managed to impact the proceedings in a meaningful way. Van der Dussen is the leading run-scorer for the team with 364 runs and has scored 3 half-centuries and a century in his 7 innings.

While there are some quality batsmen on the team including Fakhar Zaman, Shai Hope, and Sikandar Raza, they haven’t been able to put up the big scores. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Zaman Khan have bowled well as a pair, picking up 21 wickets between them.

Zaman Khan picked up 4 wickets in the last match and was instrumental in handing his team their first win of the season. However, the team is severely lacking when it comes to spin.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the National Stadium in Karachi is well-balanced. The ball moves around and there is plenty of seam movement too. The batsmen will have to be careful when facing the new ball. Things get better as the ball gets softer.

The average first-inning score on this ground is around 160. The spinners will find some grip and turn during the second half of the match.

The weather in Karachi is likely to be overcast with temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius. 


KK vs LQ Betting Tips

Both, Karachi and Lahore have struggled to perform up to their full potential. As both sides will be desperate for a win, we can expect a close contest. Nevertheless, we think that the Karachi Kings have an edge in this match thanks to a better balance in the bowling department.

Bet on the Karachi Kings to win.

  1. Parimatch


    Rassie van der Dussen to be the top batsman for Lahore Qalandars



Van der Dussen has been in excellent form with the bat. He has scored 3 half-centuries and a century and was the top batter for the team in 3 of the last 4 matches. As the batting around him has been inconsistent, it makes good sense to back him.

  1. Satbet


    Shaheen Shah Afridi to be the top bowler for Lahore Qalandars



Afridi has been in good form over the last couple of weeks. He has picked up 10 wickets in the last 5 matches and was the top bowler for Lahore in 3 of their last 5 matches. As the pitch in Karachi does help the seamers, Afridi is likely to bowl another good spell.
