Match 2 of PSL 8 is between Karachi Kings Vs Peshawar Zalmi, The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is a professional Twenty20 cricket league in Pakistan. The 8th edition of the PSL is starting from 13th February till 19th March of 2023.

Both teams are playing in their First match of the new season. Both teams aim for a strong start to the next campaign. Kings had a very dismal PSL season in which they came in last on the standings and Zalmi fell to United in the first Eliminator.

The match between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi, this fixture is most exciting match in the group stage of the tournament after Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings Rivalry this season. The reason behind this rivalry is the swap of Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik, Haider Ali from their previous team to the other team.i.e. Babar Azam from Karachi Kings to Peshawar Zalmi and Haider Ali + Shoaib Malik from Peshawar Zalmi to Karachi Kings. Both the teams are fully filled with the star performers , in all of the fields, i.e. Batting,Bowling and Fielding.

As Babar transitioned from Kings to Zalmi, He would command the Team. Kings’ captain will be Imad Wasim. In their most recent five encounters, Zalmi came out on top four to one. We will wait for the toss and the teams.


Karachi Kings won the toss and choose to bowl first, Captain Imad elected to Bowl first. First ball was bowled at 8:00 local time.

Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi Head to Head


What’s My prediction (no Calculations Whatsoever Just my 6th Sense Lets see) ?

The last time these teams faced off was in the PSL 7 game, which Peshawar Zalmi won over Karachi Kings while Wahab Riaz served as captain for Peshawar and Babar for Kings. Both teams are strong for this year’s PSL, however this time a fierce rivalry has broken out between Peshawar Zalmi’s new captain a superstar batsman Babar Azam and Karachi Kings captain Imad Wasim and fast bowler M. Amir.

My Prediction for the match is : Peshawar Zalmi to Win
