The main squads faced small changes, so the game seems to be predictable. The Kings saved eight players from the last PSL draw, while the Sultans kept the same ten from the last tournament. It means that both sides should be similarly effective in batting. The franchise from Karachi performed a great 9.73 runs per over, while their weak side was bowling only a 9.2 economy rate in the decisive games. The latter aspect is a dangerous sign as the Sultans have three great batters in the face of Rossouw, David, and Maqsood, who are delivering with SR of around 150 with an overall 400+ runs per season.

The bookmakers see the home side as a slight favourite here. The odds for the victory of the Kings are 1.82, while the success of the Sultans is offered with a coefficient of 2.0. The first reason to see the team from Karachi a favourite is their home stadium. Also, the Kings are super confident in the opening seasons’ games, winning five from six (losing only in the second season). However, some of the duels are really interesting and go in favour of Sultans. For instance, Sultans’ bowler Blessing Muzarabani is super effective against Babar Azam from the Kings, giving him only 36 runs in 5 innings.
