babar azam’s karachi king lost 5th straight match in psl

Islamabad United, the two-time champion, won by 42 runs, giving Karachi their fifth straight loss in the Pakistan Super League.
Without a point, host Karachi, backed by Pakistan T20 skipper Babar Azam, will travel to Lahore for the last leg of the PSL next week. Another loss will put the team on the verge of being eliminated.

Karachi King Has Lost Their 5th Straight Game In PSL

Babar stated that his team lacked confidence.

“Unfortunately, we have lost all of our games so far,” Babar remarked, “but I will attempt to instill more confidence in the boys going forward.” Babar had three outstanding catches in an otherwise lackluster performance by his colleagues.

“I believe we gave up a few runs, but I still thought it was a chase-able total.” Injury-hit Karachi has failed to threaten opponents at home, as their crucial fast bowler Mohammad Amir has been thrown out of the tournament without having bowled a single over.

In his first game, English spinner Chris Jordan (2-36) grabbed up two late wickets — both caught by Babar — to dismiss Shadab and Colin Munro (33) before Azam Khan performed a cameo of 16 off only 7 balls to help Islamabad reach their target.

When Babar (8) and Sharjeel Khan (6) were lost in the batting powerplay, Karachi always looked to struggle. In the fifth over, Sharjeel was run out after a mix-up with his captain, while fast bowler Mohammad Wasim knocked back Babar’s off stump.

The Sunday result means Karachi Kings are winless at their halfway stage and staring in the eyes of an elimination. 

The 2020 champions are by no means out of the competition, but if previous events have anything to do with this year’s tournament, then they will have to win the remaining five matches in the Lahore leg and also improve their net run rate so that they remain in contention for a place in the play-offs.

Meanwhile, Islamabad United are on six points from five matches, Multan  Sultans are at top of the table with five successive wins and Peshawar Zalmi are fourth with two wins and three losses.

Second-placed Lahore Qalandars will take on fifth-placed Quetta Gladiators in the 15th and the last match of the Karachi-leg matches with the first ball to be bowled at 7.30 pm.

The PSL is halfway over, and the Karachi Kings have already exited the competition. The team who hosted the first leg suffered their most heinous defeat of the season in their final home game, as Islamabad United thrashed Babar Azam’s men by 42 runs. Islamabad United scored 177 on a ground that wasn’t quite as open as most of the others so far this season, owing to a number of cameos from the top order.

The Kings appeared to have a chance to take it down at the moment, but United, as well as the Kings’ own self-destructive mentality, had other ideas. The Kings were quickly out of the game after a couple of run-outs at the top and regular wickets, before Shadab Khan, the undisputed star of the tournament, stepped up with the ball to rip the heart out of the middle order. The Kings finished tamely with 135, thanks to his 4 for 15 performance.

Things had devolved into a farce for the Kings by this point, and the desire to be relieved of their anguish was palpable. Shadab was the man for the job, bowling a four-wicket session that placed the hosts on the verge of losing. Lewis Gregory was duped by flight, Imad and Jordan were duped by the incorrect ‘un, and Mohammad Taha was duped by the whole flat ball. For a while, it was the Shadab show, with Karachi cast as the sidekick.
