Peshawar Zalmi v Karachi Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction
This is a vital clash between two sides with decent batting but not the firepower they would like to back it up.
This one could go right to the wire. Here is our selection of best bets for the fixture.
Back a First Innings Score Over 162.5
It is possible to score runs on this ground and this bet looks a good opportunity in this fixture.
Islamabad and Karachi both scored over 189 in their last game, while Peshawar and Multan made 165+.
Both sides have struggled to take wickets recently and have teams packed with good batsmen.
You can back the first innings score to be over 162.5 with bet365 at 1.73.
The Zalmi Win Offers Value
Given how close this match could be, Peshawar’s price of 2.1 with bet365 looks a little too big.
Kamran Akmal has been solid at the top of the order and the last game showed signs that Haider Ali could be ready to fire again.
David Miller, Rovman Powell and Sherfane Rutherford have all contributed big scores in recent matches. If one doesn’t fire then the other tends to.
While their bowling attack hasn’t really fired on all cylinders, Mohammad Irfan and Umaid Asif have done okay.
Siding with the bigger-priced Zalmi in such an evenly-matched clash looks the way to go.
Zadran to Add More Runs
Najibullah Zadran was excellent in Karachi’s last fixture and it could be worth backing him to get more runs here.
The Afghanistan middle-order batsman hit an unbeaten 71 against leaders Islamabad but has struggled to put back-to-back performances together.
It is a longshot bet but backing him to be his team’s top batsman is too big a price at 8.0 with 22Bet.
Babar Azam heads this market at a much, much shorter price but should he suffer a rare early dismissal then Zadran is well-placed batting at number four to take advantage.
