Match 11 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 has the Karachi Kings taking on Lahore Qalandars at the National Stadium in Karachi.
The Kings are in decent form coming into this game. With a stunning run-chase against Multan Sultans, Azam and co are firmly in the running for a top-four finish. However, they would want to sustain the momentum as the points table slowly takes shape.
As for the Lahore Qalandars, they have been one of the more fancied teams in the PSL so far. However, Rashid Khan's departure did have a telling impact in their previous PSL game.
But with Mohammad Hafeez in the form of his life, Lahore Qalandars would certainly fancy a win to get their campaign back on track.
Although the Kings are the favourites heading into this game, Lahore's balance and depth should make for a competitive game. With two valuable points up for grabs, we should be in for a cracking game of cricket in the PSL.

A good batting track awaits the two sides in Karachi. The average first innings score in the last three evening games is 195, with the chasing team coming up trumps in all three of them. While the pacers will get some help off the surface, the spinners should also have a say in the proceedings. 170-180 should be par at this venue, with both teams looking to chase upon winning the toss.
