Match 26: KAR vs LAH



Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars will square off for the 26th match of the Pakistan T20 League 2024. The game is scheduled to be played at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday, March 9.

After beating Quetta by 7 wickets with 27 balls to spare in their last fixture, the Kings lost their previous match against Islamabad by 5 wickets, hence getting defeated in four out of the last five games.

Keiron Pollard scored the most runs for KAR in the last match and the side will be looking forward to more fierce strokes from the Caribbean power hitter in future matches. Mir Hamza starred with the ball in hand picking up three scalps for 41 runs in his previous outing.  

Lahore Qalandars fetched their first win in this league in their recent encounter and they will probably keep faith in the same Playing XI with whom they got their first victory of the tournament against Islamabad United on Wednesday.

Rassie van der Dussen will lead the batting side as he has done across the competition. The Proteas batter is just 30 runs behind Babar Azam in the list of top run scorers in the Pakistan T20 League.
