Players To Watch out For

Babar Azam

With four losses in four games, Babar Azam remains the key for Karachi. He came close to carrying his side to victory in the previous fixture, and the knock may help him find a decent run of form. With Karachi fading fast, Azam will have to step up further and play some out of the world Cricket to rescue his side from early elimination.

Shadab Khan

Shadab Khan has been doing a good job this season and is showing his credentials nicely as a leader. His performance has also been good and he is silently doing a good job for United.
