Islamabad United To Start PSL 8th Edition Against Karachi Kings Today

The match is scheduled to start at 7pm local time (2pm GMT) on Thursday, February 16.

The National Stadium in Karachi will host this fixture.

Karachi Kings lost their first game against Peshawar Zalmi by two runs.

Islamabad United will be playing first match of the PSL 8th edition today against Karachi.

Karachi Kings will be led by allrounder Imad Wasim, and with the franchise experience of James Vince and Matthew Wade in the squad they should be looking at a much more effective batting unit. Adding the bowling credentials of Imran Tahir, the Kings could be on for a much better season after a disappointing start.

James Vince missed the first Karachi Kings game despite having already landed in Pakistan, so it remains to be seen if he is included here.

Islamabad United are without Alex Hales and Rahmanullah Gurbaz.

Karachi Kings: Matthew Wade, James Vince, Sharjeel Khan, Haider Ali, Qasim Akram, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Andrew Tye, Imran Tahir, Mir Hamza, Mohammad Amir

Islamabad United have a potent top order

United have the potential to roll Karachi Kings if the top order fires, but their bowling is not in the best form. Home win.
