Karachi Kings v Lahore Qalandars – Betting Tips and Prediction
It is understandable to see why Karachi have been made favourites for this. They are once again playing at their home venue and head into it on the back of the Eliminator 1 victory over PSL group winners Multan.
Having Babar Azam and Alex Hales batting near the top of the order is an intimidating sight for Lahore. However, at the prices, they could be worth taking on.
The huge positive for the Qalandars is their ability to take wickets. They had Peshawar nine down in the Eliminator and bowled Multan out in Qualifier 2.
The battle between Babar and Hales and Lahore bowling duo Haris Rauf and Shaheen Afridi is going to be pivotal.
We’re backing the bowlers to come out on top. They have clearly enjoyed Karachi conditions as much as anyone recently.
Experience at the top of the Lahore order from Tamim Iqbal, Fakhar Zaman and an in-form Mohammad Hafeez also give them a chance. Back them at 2.1 with bet365 to take the win.
Babar to Send it to the Boundary
There is no denying the brilliance of Babar Azam, especially in this format of the game.
He has enjoyed impressive showings for Pakistan ahead of the PSL return and continued his form with 65 in Qualifier 1. In that innings, he hit two sixes and five fours.
Backing him to hit one six and one four is available at 1.91 with 1xBet. This is a tempting bet given how Karachi’s star man will be looking to set the tone for his side early on.
Rauf to Shine in the Final
Haris Rauf has bowled excellently in tandem with Shaheen Afridi during these PSL playoffs. The duo have taken wickets at every turn and can cause more problems in the final.
It is Shaheen that heads the Lahore top bowler market, which actually gives Haris some value.
He was superb in the win over Multan as he took 3-30 bowling with real confidence.
He can be backed at 3.74 with 1xBet to be his team’s top wicket-taker in the final. For those looking for even more value, he is priced at 7.0 with the same betting site to be the top bowler in the match.
