Two-time PSL champions Islamabad United will face Karachi Kings in Match 14 of the Pakistan Super League 2020. Islamabad were scheduled to face Peshawar Zalmi on Saturday. However, the game was abandoned due to rain. This leaves Islamabad at fourth in the PSL points table after five games with 2 each of wins and losses.
Meanwhile, Karachi have played just three games, managing to win only one. Both the teams will be eager to get some valuable points on the board. We look at the ISL vs KAR Dream11 prediction, ISL vs KAR Dream11 team, ISL vs KAR match prediction, ISL vs KAR playing 11 and all ISL vs KAR live match details ahead of another blockbuster clash.
ISL vs KAR live match venue is Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi. ISL vs KAR live match date is Sunday, March 1, 2020. And ISL vs KAR live match start time is 7:30 PM IST.
Winners of PSL 2018, Islamabad have endured a mixed start to the season, losing twice already. After losing their opening fixture against the defending champions Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad bounced back to win two in a row. However, they once again fell to the Gladiators on Match 9 of the PSL, before seeing out a no result on Saturday. Shadab Khan led-Islamabad are one of the most prominent batting sides in the league with a score of 160 or more on each of the four occasions. With overseas talents like Colin Ingram and Luke Ronchi leading the attack, they are also one of the most exciting sides in the league. Dale Steyn is expected to play on Sunday in the ISL vs KAR live match.
Unlike Islamabad United, Karachi Kings opened their account for the new season in a dominant fashion scoring over 200 runs in a 10-run win over Peshawar. However, back-to-back defeats against the Gladiators and Multan Sultans mean, Kings are left second from bottom ahead of Lahore Qalandars, who are yet to open their account in the PSL 2020. Kings do boast a talented squad with Babar Azam, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir in their ranks. If only they could bring out the consistency needed, Karachi could possibly topple Islamabad United on Sunday in the ISL vs KAR live match.
