Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United, Match 28 Myteam11 fantasy league prediction | 14th March 2020
- Here are a few tips for Myteam11 fantasy league for the match between Karachi Kings and Islamabad United.
Karachi Kings will be looking to seal their playoff berth when they lock horns with Islamabad United in the 28th match of Pakistan Super League 2020. The Kings are currently in second position with 9 points from 8 matches. On the other hand, Islamabad will want to keep their campaign alive as the team is in fifth position on the table with 7 points in 9 games.
The home side, Karachi, will be high on confidence having defeated Lahore Qalandars by 10 wickets in their previous match. They also emerged victorious when they met Islamabad United earlier this season. Having lost their last two matches via D/L method, the team from the Pakistan capital will hope that rain does not intervene in tonight's game.
The Karachi-based franchise will be without their dashing opener Alex Hales for the rest of the season as the Englishman has left Pakistan due to the COVID-19 threat looming over the subcontinent. Islamabad have also lost Dawid Malan and Luke Ronchi's services. A plethora of domestic stars will now get the opportunity to prove themselves in the absence of foreign stars.
Here are a few tips for Myteam11 fantasy league.
Myteam11 Fantasy League teams
Wicketkeeper: Chadwick Walton will be the best pick among the wicket-keepers as Luke Ronchi has left PSL 2020. It will be interesting to see who keeps the wickets for Islamabad United since they do not have a specialist wicket-keeper in their squad now.
Batsmen: Babar Azam played a splendid knock of 69 runs against Lahore Qalandars in the previous match but he got out for a duck the last time he played Islamabad United. Azam will be keen to replicate his performance from the game against Lahore. Colin Ingram is still available for Islamabad, and the South African batsman needs to be the top pick among their batsmen. Ingram has crossed the 30 runs mark twice in his last five innings.
Looking at the way Sharjeel Khan played versus the Qalandars, it will be a bad decision to leave him out of the team tonight. The left-handed batsman can score a lot of runs in the mandatory powerplay. In case Philip Salt makes it to the match squad for Islamabad, he can prove to be a wildcard pick.
All-rounders: Shadab Khan has been in phenomenal touch this season. Not only has the local star done well with the ball but he has also delivered the goods with the bat. He will be the player to watch out for.
Just like Khan, Imad Wasim has impressed with his all-round brilliance for Karachi Kings. Playing against Islamabad United in the first round, Wasim had played an unbeaten knock of 32 runs besides taking a wicket with the ball. Although Cameron Delport is a T20 specialist, it would be better to avoid having him for this match because he is yet to make a match-winning contribution for the Kings.
Bowlers: Since Mohammad Aamir has picked up only two wickets in his last three matches, fantasy team owners should instead opt for Umaid Asif in their squad. Asif had been out of the team but he came back in style picking up two wickets against the Qalandars. Rumman Raees took a three-wicket haul versus Lahore Qalandars last week making him the top pick from Islamabad.
Chris Jordan could be a worthy option for the third bowler's spot as he is a handy death overs bowler. Even Zafar Gohar can be a value-for-money pick in case he makes it to the playing XI of Islamabad.
