Karachi Kings will be up against Islamabad United in the sixth match of PSL season 2021 scheduled to be held at the National Stadium in Karachi on wednesday, February 24. Here is a fair chance to earn a quick buck from the best KK vs IU betting tips I have picked for you.
Both the teams are powerfully built when it comes to playing in the shorter format in cricket. Islamabad United defeated Karachi Kings in PSL 2019 in both the matches by 7 wickets and 5 wickets but the Kings bounced back in the 2020 season conquering both the matches the duo played by 5 wickets and 4 wickets respectively. Kings and United made it to the eliminator 1 round in 2019 where United beat the Kings by 4 wickets securing a place in Eliminator 2 to fight against Peshwar Zalmi to whom they finally lost. PSL 2020 had a different story to tell, where Kings fought back and earned a spot in the finals to play against Lahore Qalandars to ultimately win the champion title. This for sure shows us that, this season will be a riveting one where both teams will combat to obtain a spot in the final. As the team's gear up, take a look at the top three betting tips from the Karachi Kings vs Islamabad United match prediction for you to bet upon.
Starting off with skipper, Babar Azam who led the Kings to a historic win last season against the Lahore Qalandars. He was not only declared the Man of the match but also Player Of The Series in PSL 2020. Babar Azam has featured in 121 Domestic T20's and averages 41.85 from them with a total of 3934 runs. Azam has played 11 matches against Islamabad United and averages 37.67 from it. Not to mention, he holds a brilliant record playing for Karachi Kings where he has contributed to 46 matches for his team and averages 39.10 from it with 1525 runs to his name. In the 2020 season he played 11 innings for the Kings hammered 473 runs at an astounding average of 59.12 including the highest number of half centuries being not only the highest run-getter for his team but also the player with most runs last season. There is no doubt that Azam is on a roll considering his recent form to which Bet365.com has offered betting odds of 1.90 for Babar Azam to score over 36.5 runs in the KK vs IU match prediction.
With Karachi Kings and Islamabad United having played only one match each this season, both the teams defeated their opponents in the opening matches. Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan were the opening batsman for Karachi Kings last season, and together they pulled in a total of 344 runs from opening partnership from 11 matches which averages to 31.27 per match. While Colin Munro and Luke Ronchi who opened for Islamabad United last season gathered a total of 278 runs from 9 matches played, which averages to 30.88 runs per match from opening partnership. This clearly indicates Karachi Kings stand a better chance of winning this bet considering the past statistics and records. With Alex Hales playing for Islamabad United this season, he has opened for IU along with Phillip Salt in the first match played against Multans Sultans accumulating 30 runs, whereas Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam will continue their opening partnership for Karachi Kings.
