The 6th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 will be played between Karachi Kings and Islamabad United on 24th February at National Stadium in Karachi.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time (7:30 PM IST) and it will be streamed live on Sony Sports Network.
Defending champions Karachi Kings will take on Islamabad United in the 6th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 on Wednesday. Karachi Kings had a wonderful start to their tournament campaign as they scripted a convincing victory of 7 wickets over Quetta Gladiators. A large margin of victory has helped them in terms of net run-rate as well. Currently, they are at 2nd spot in the standings with 2 points with a net run-rate of 3.058 though it’s still early days in the tournament. Overseas players are their main strengths and they look to utilize their services to the maximum extent in the upcoming matches.
On the other hand, Islamabad United achieved an improbable victory against Multan Sultans by 3 wickets with an over to spare. Overseas all-rounder Lewis Gregory’s brutal hitting in the end won the game for them. Middle-order batters should contribute with the bat. Opener Alex Hales will play a major role in this series for them. At present they are at 3rd spot in the standings with 2 points. Both the teams had an excellent outing in their respective opening matches and a win here will take them ahead in the points table.
