Abu Dhabi, June 14: Islamabad United will face Karachi Kings in a PSL 2021 match here at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Monday (June 14). They have different aims in front of them through a commonly desired win.
Islamabad United have 10 points from 7 matches but are ahead of second-placed Lahore Qalandars (10 points from 7 matches) on net run rate. Another win on this night push them close to the knockout phase and they want that move away from chasing pack.
On the other hand, Karachi Kings are still caught up in the mid-table tussle with Multan Sultans as both has 6 points and Peshawar Zalmi who have 8 points from as many matches. The Kings would like to match Zalmi on 8 points with a match in hand, and that can give them temporarily advantage.
The Kings also have a better run-rate at +0.463 as compared to Zalmi's +0.296. They would be eager to maintain the status quo on that front and a win is the best possible source.
