KAR vs PES: Karachi Kings will face last season’s runner-up Peshawar Zalmi in the first game of the double-header in the PSL on Friday. Karachi Kings have been one of the most underachieving teams of the PSL as they are yet to reach the final of the tournament. Peshawar Zalmi, on the other hand, won the tournament in 2017 and reached the final twice since then in 2018 and 2019. While Karachi Kings will look to improve their record in the tournament, the Zalmis will be eager to go one step further this season to re-claim PSL title.
