Lahore Qalandars vs Karachi Kings Match 23rd, Lahore Qalandars won their 3rd match within the 5th edition of the Pakistan Super League 2020, once they defeated Karachi Kings by 8 wickets here on Sunday at the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium.

Lahore Qalandars captain Sohail Akhtar has won the toss and decided to bowl first against Karachi Kings in the 23rd match of the Pakistan Super League – 2020 here at the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

Lahore Qalandars comprehensively beat Karachi Kings on Sunday at the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium, defeating the “Kings” by 8 wickets and registering their 3rd victory in as many days.

Ben Dunk on Sunday went berserk for a second time within the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020, scoring a whirlwind 99 off 40 balls — almost like his blitzkrieg against Quetta Gladiators earlier in the week — to assist Lahore Qalandars upset Karachi Kings by eight wickets at Gaddafi Stadium.

The bald Australian walked in when the score was 50-2 within the 9th over and therefore the Qalandars, chasing 188, we’re watching another defeat.

With captain Sohail Akhtar by his side, Dunk soon started his six-fest and slugged his team back to contention and on their way towards their second-straight win.

He hit 12 sixes, improving his own PSL record of most sixes hit in an innings.

Akhtar, who had opened the innings, also justified his captain’s role for the primary time, contributing an unbeaten 46-ball 68, but more importantly getting out of the way and letting Dunk rag-doll Karachi bowlers.

Number one T20I batsman Babar Azam is the leading run-scorer for Kings, scoring 187 with two half-centuries. Another notable scorer is Alex Hales, who has scored 159 in five matches played.

Qalandars are heavily relying on Shaheen Shah Afridi and Samit Patel who has played a major part in their wins with the bowl and with the bat, Mohammad Hafeez, and Ben Dunk are their notable performers.
