Karachi Kings looks like a strong team with players like Pak captain Babar Azam, Martin Guptil, Imad Wassim and Tissara Perera.

May be it was a bad day for them and will hopefully bounce back.

Thanks for regular updates from PSL.

I guess they made a mistake by calling Multan Sultans to bat first. They could have probably set a good target for Multans had they bat first.

I think so too, given their formidable batting lineup with all those star players, they better set the target and defend it.
But it also depends on the pitch and history of results, may be a bad day for them.
