QG vs KK Match Prediction - Mar 06, 2023

It is a battle of the bottom 2 teams as the Karachi Kings take on the Quetta Gladiators in match number 22 of the Pakistan Super League at Rawalpindi.

The Quetta Gladiators are at the bottom of the points table with just 2 points from 7 matches, while the Karachi Kings are one place ahead of them with 4 points. However, the latter has played one game extra compared to their opponents. With the group stage nearing its end, both teams will be desperate to win this contest to keep their playoff hopes alive. 

Normally, you would have to settle for poor odds when these teams are playing but the best cricket betting sites have some pretty decent odds on offer right now.


QG vs KK Team Previews

Quetta Gladiators

The Gladiators haven’t been in the best of forms this season as they have managed to win just 1 of the 7 matches that they have played so far. The team has lost each of its last 5 matches and will be pretty low on confidence when they take on the field.

The batsmen have failed to get going for the Gladiators and that has been one of the biggest reasons for their poor run in the tournament. Will Smeed and Yasir Shah haven’t been able to give their team a good start, while Sarfaraz Ahmed, who is one of the team’s most experienced players, has struggled to play consistently. Iftikhar Ahmed, who was excellent during this year’s Bangladesh Premier League, has failed to bring his form here.

However, the team will take some hope from the fact that Mohammad Nawaz seems to have finally found some form. He, along with Najibullah Zadran, put up a 104-run partnership in the last match, with both players scoring individual half-centuries.

It is a similar story with the bowling too, as the team’s premier bowler, Naseem Shah, has failed to get going. Veteran pacer Umaid Asif has played just 2 matches so far and appears to be in good touch, while Nawaz will be hoping to contribute more with the ball after claiming a total of 7 wickets in as many matches.

Karachi Kings

The Karachi Kings have played some close contests this season but have been rather unlucky as most of the results swung away from them.

The batting has been one of the strongest points for the Kings so far. Captain Imad Wasim has led from the front, scoring a total of 329 runs. The other batsmen, including Shoaib Malik and Matthew Wade, have given him some good support. However, Adam Rossington and Sharjeel Khan have failed to get going and all eyes will be on them during the upcoming matches.

Tayyab Tahir and Irfan Khan have got some good starts but have failed to convert them into big inning. Talking about the bowling, the Kings will once again depend on Mohammad Amir to give the team a good start with the new ball, while Aamer Yamin will look to play a supporting role. Andrew Tye makes a comeback in the team and he will be looking to pick some early wickets here.

Tabraiz Shamsi has done a decent job with the ball during the middle overs and the Kings will be hoping that he bowls a tight line and length to put the opposition batsmen under pressure.

Pitch and Conditions

The Pindi Cricket Stadium offers an excellent opportunity for the batsmen to score runs and the average first-inning score here is around 190. The quicker bowlers will enjoy bowling here thanks to the pace offered by the pitch, while the spinners are likely to struggle here.

The weather is expected to remain a bit overcast with temperatures below 20 degrees Celsius. 


QG vs KK Betting Tips

While the only win for the Quetta Gladiators this season has come against the Karachi Kings in the reverse fixture, they will find it difficult to extract a similar result here. Their top scorer from that game, Martin Guptill, is unavailable here, while Mohammad Hasnain remains doubtful due to an injury.

On the other hand, the Karachi Kings have a stronger batting line-up and will relish taking on an under-par bowling attack of the Gladiators.

Bet on the Karachi Kings to win this match.

    Imad Wasim (9.00)


Imad Wasim has been in excellent form this season. He has scored 3 half-centuries in his 8 innings so far and is the top run-getter for his team. He has an extraordinary average of 164.50 and given his current form, it is worth backing him to be the top scorer here.
