Karachi Kings (KAR) will host Quetta Gladiators (QUE) in the fourth match of Pakistan Super League 2022 at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday, January 29. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.
KAR vs QUE Dream11 prediction
Karachi Kings take on Quetta Gladiators in a PSL double-header on Saturday. Karachi Kings made a disappointing start to their PSL 7 campaign with a loss against Multan Sultans in their opening encounter. However, given the experience in their squad, they will fancy their chances of registering a win and will start as slight favourites.
After a disappointing season last year, Quetta Gladiators have added some firepower to their batting line-up with the inclusion of Shimron Hetmyer and Daniel Lawrence to their squad. They will look to turn the tables this time around and start the season on a positive note.
KAR vs QUE Dream11 team tips for Pakistan Super League 2022
Top tip: Best batter
Picking Karachi Kings’ Babar Azam in your fantasy team is a no-brainer for this match. The Karachi Kings captain is the top run-getter in PSL with over 2000 runs at an average of 42. The right-hander is a reliable player at the top of the order and has the ability to take apart any bowling lineup in the world. The right-hander was out cheaply in the opening encounter of the season but given his repertoire, is too good a player to be ignored.
Top tip: Best bowler
Mohammad Ilyas will be the best choice amongst bowlers for this match. The 22-year-old had a good PSL season last year and ended with eight wickets in five games. Ilyas’ ability to bowl with the new ball as well as at the death makes him a smart addition to any fantasy team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Amongst the all-rounders, picking Karachi Kings’ Mohammad Nabi will be a wise option. The Afghan national has plenty of experience in the T20 format with over 5000 runs and over 350 wickets to his name. The 37-year-old picked two wickets in the last match although his side could not finish on the right side of the result.
Quetta Gladiators’ Sarfaraz Ahmed is a great option amongst wicket-keepers for your fantasy team. Sarfaraz was the top scorer for Quetta in the last edition with 321 runs in 10 innings at a strike-rate of 138. The 34-year-old is a vital player in the middle-order for his side and is expected to score quick runs at the fag end of the innings. Apart from his finishing skills, Sarfaraz is also a safe keeper behind the stumps, making him a player to watch out for in this contest.
