Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United
Islamabad captain Shadab Khan:
We should take advantage of our deep batting lineup. We’ve established a standard for our play and intend to maintain it. Sometimes we lose wickets or games, but it’s important to continue playing the brand. Bowlers are always on the same page as me, so it’s easy to captain. Sent well
Best Player of the Game: Colin Munro It’s always a plus when things kick off successfully. It’s rewarding to make an immediate impact and see early success. Our biggest strength is that we like to be aggressive and not worry about getting out. Recently, we’ve been led by a great captain in Shadab and a great team of managers. As long as it helps the team, I’m in. As we have some flexibility (higher up the order), I can hit pretty much anywhere.
Karachi captain Imad Wasim:
We had a good start with the ball but missed some key catches. The batting was alright; I thought we scored well for this wicket. Although TKC batted well against my bowling in the most recent game, I still did quite well.
22:28 Local Time, 17:28 GMT, 22:58 IST Karachi Kings vs Islamabad match United comfortable run chase for Islamabad. Due to the short boundary on one side and the dew factor, the sum was always shy of perfect. With early wickets, Karachi put pressure on the visitors in the powerplay and gave themselves a good chance of winning. Then Munro came in and promptly hit a four off the first ball he faced on his way to a fifty off only 24 deliveries. His counterpunch shook Karachi up and freed up van der Dussen, who wasn’t looking fluent early on. The duo’s stand set things up, and Azam joined Munro for another cracking partnership that sealed the game. Karachi’s field play was sloppy for the most part, and they dropped some easy catches that would have tied the game. Their batting also didn’t finish strong, and with two losses in two games, they have suffered a sloppy start to the season.
