Karachi Kings are set to square off against Peshawar Zalmi in Match 29 of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 on Monday, March 11, at the National Stadium in Karachi. With the playoffs' door slowly closing, this encounter is nothing short of a do-or-die battle for Karachi, who is seeking to keep its playoff dreams alive.

After a roller-coaster ride of nine matches, the Kings have experienced a mixed bag of fortunes, with four wins against five defeats. Yet, they ride into this crucial match on a high note, following a nail-biting victory over the Lahore Qalandars that kept their hopes flickering in the twilight.

At the vanguard of Karachi Kings' charge will be the formidable trio of Tim Seifert, James Vince, and captain Shan Masood. This trio, having played useful knocks in their recent outing, is tipped to lead the line once again at the top of the order.

The middle order is a fortress manned by the likes of Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard, and Irfan Khan. This triumvirate has been the backbone of the Kings' batting lineup, delivering sensational performances that have left opponents reeling. As a result, they are set to retain their places in the playing XI.

However, not all tales from the previous match were of great performance. Anwar Ali's disappointing performance, with figures of 1 for 36 and a paltry single with the bat, has put his place in the squad under scrutiny. Enter Mohammad Nawaz, whose all-round skills and wealth of experience make him a prime candidate to step into the fray for this clash of monumental proportions.

Arafat Minhas, occupying the No. 8 slot, is expected to hold his ground. The bowling department, helmed by Hasan Ali, Zahir Mahmood, and Blessing Muzarabani, remains Karachi's ace in the hole. Their consistent brilliance throughout the tournament has been a silver lining and will be crucial as Karachi Kings aim to beat Peshawar Zalmi in this must-win battle.
