Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi – Latest Odds

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi – Team News
The Kings went into Sunday’s match against Islamabad United unchanged, leaving Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam at the top of the order and Chadwick Walton, Cameron Delport and Alex Hales in the middle. They definitely have the option of bumping Hales to the top, but won’t necessarily make positional changes. They might be tempted to play Mitchell McClenaghan ahead of Chris Jordan, who was expensive and went without a wicket against United.
Zalmi will continue to rely on their England connection, with enough homegrown talent in the mix, too. Tom Banton and Liam Livingstone would like to be more consistent with the bat, while Lewis Gregory can continue the momentum gained from a match-winning four-wicket haul against the Lahore Qalandars. Peshawar did not use one spinner in a five-seamer attack in that win over Lahore, but have Mohammad Mohsin and Shoaib Malik if required.

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi – Betting Tips and Prediction
The last five matches between the Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi have brought four wins for the latter. They are both in the bottom half of the table going into this match and keen to remind the other title contenders – and those betting on the PSL – that they’re chasing the PSL trophy as well. We’ve got some free cricket betting tips for you ahead of this key Pakistan Super League match.
Tom Banton vs Kamran Akmal
England’s Banton is offered at 2.10 to score more runs than team-mate Akmal. The Englishman has shown how he can get after the hard, new ball quickly. He has Big Bash League experience to draw on and will be in action in the Indian Premier League later this year. He’ll be hard pressed to outscore Akmal, who has already hit a century this tournament. It’s sure to be a good tussle.
A 50 to be scored in this match
With ‘Yes’ at 1.20 and ‘No’ at 4.50, the bowlers will have to have a really good day in a format often dominated by the batsmen for the latter market to come off. With Banton, Akmal, Livingstone, Azam, Hales and other big-hitters packed into this match, one fancies there will be at least one half-century. For longer odds, a century to be scored in this match is priced at 9.00. The 2020 PSL has already produced two tons.
Best Bet: Tom Banton to outscore Kamran Akmal at 2.10 with bet365
