Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars Betting Tips 30/01/2022

The 6th fixture of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 sees Karachi Kings take on Lahore Qalandars at National Stadium Karachi on Jan 30 (Sunday). The match is to begin at 8pm IST.

Teams Status

Karachi Kings

Karachi Kings have had a nightmare start to the season so far. They’ve played two matches and lost two but more importantly the manner of their defeats have been alarming.

Scores of 124 and 113 in their two outings is embarrassing for a side that boasts a superstar such as Babar Azam opening for them.

In their latest defeat, to Quetta, Babar scored 32 but those around him just fell like a house of cards. None of the batsmen batting from number three to seven contributed in double figures.

If it wasn’t for Aamer Yamin’s 20 and Imad Wasim’s 26 late in the order, Karachi would have folded for a lot less than the 113 they managed.

Lahore Qalandars

Lahore batters played brilliantly in their opening match of the tournament but unfortunately for them their Multan Sultans counterparts were even better.

The defending champions chased down the mammoth 207-run target set by Lahore with five wickets and two balls to spare.

Lahore, though, will not be deterred as their batsmen had done their part and it’s just that their star-studded bowling attack had an off night. There can’t be too many of those when you have names such as Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf bowling for you.

The Qalandars will be excited about Fakhar Zaman’s 76 off 35. The hard-hitting leftie usually takes his time to get going but already has a big knock at the start of this tournament.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Lahore to win @ 1.78

It is clear to see that Karachi’s batting is a mess. Their middle order in particular looks very weak and has now two straight meltdowns to its CV. We don’t see how this unit can beat Lahore. Babar and Sharjeel Khan will have to play out of their skins to change our mind. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Mohammad Nabi to score more than 14.5 runs @ 1.87

We can expect newcomers to struggle but we do not expect that from an experienced campaigner such as Mohammad Nabi. The Afghan veteran was out first ball to Naseem Shah in the defeat to Quetta. We think he’d play more responsibly and take it upon himself to get a few runs out of that creaky middle order of Karachi. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


These two teams split their round robin meetings last year, with Lahore winning first and then Karachi following suit. As things currently stand, Lahore should be the one opening with the win.
