Yesterday at the eliminator round of PSL 2, Karachi Kings beat the current champion Islamabad United by 44 runs and so, they are getting closer to the final of second edition of PSL. Though, they still have to cross the main obstacle to reach the final. Peshawar Zalmi is regarded as the main obstacle. They lost the 1st qualifier match against Quetta and became very desperate and so, they are ready to smash the winner of the eliminator round. Though, Zalmi thought that United could be the opponent in the next stage which would be tough for them but instead of them, Karachi Kings will be their opponent in upcoming 2nd qualifier round which would be much easier to them it seems. However, this two teams have already played total two matches against each other in this ongoing PSL 2 season where both teams won one time each.

However, according to the previous statistics, the both teams are almost at the same position though considering their regular performance, Zalmi is in far better condition than Kings.
