Quetta Gladiators vs Karachi Kings Betting Tips 20/02/2022

The 28th fixture of the Pakistan Super League 2022 sees Quetta Gladiators take on Karachi Kings a Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on Feb 20 (Sunday). The match is to begin at 3pm IST.

Teams Status

Quetta Gladiators

Quetta Gladiators’ PSL 2022 fate is not in their hands anymore after they got absolutely mauled by Multan Sultans on Friday. It was their third straight defeat and leaves them languishing in fifth place and trailing fourth-place Islamabad United by two points.

If Islamabad win their match against Lahore Qalandars tonight, it will be game over for Quetta and it wouldn’t matter then what they do against Karachi in this fixture.

However, even if Islamabad lose, Quetta would still only have an outside shot of qualifying for the playoffs as their net run rate (-0.917) is substantially worse than Islamabad’s.

Thus, it is very likely that Quetta would be unable to make the playoffs for a third straight season. On top of everything, they’ve just lost James Faulkner, who has left after a fallout with the league as well as the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Karachi Kings

Talk about not making the playoffs and here we have Karachi Kings, whose fate beyond the PSL exit door was sealed a while ago.

Their fans did finally have something to celebrate as they got their first win of the season on Friday. The victory would taste even sweeter as it came against fierce rivals Lahore Qalandars.

There was nothing special done by batters once again, with captain Babar Azam top scoring with 39 as the Kings were skittled out for a mere 149.

Karachi bowlers, however, did impress, with Mir Hamza in particular playing a prominent role. He took four key wickets, including the prized one of Fakhar Zaman.

Truth be told, the win was more about Lahore melting down that Karachi doing something spectacular. The result would also not tell anything about their rotten season or give any insight into their future. Karachi must rebuild and overhaul their squad in the offseason and that’s the only lesson here.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Karachi to win @ 2.20

Some have long argued that Quetta are the real Karachi as their captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is a Karachiite and the franchise’s ownership also has roots in the port city. The Gladiators embody so much of Karachi’s spirit that this season their results have also been similar to that of the side that actually carries the name of Karachi, which is not a good thing. In this battle of two ailing franchises, we’d side with the team with the more attractive odds as well as one that won their last game: Karachi Kings. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Qasim Akram to score more than 16.5 runs @ 1.87

Since their season has been lost for quite some time, Karachi Kings have lately started giving their starlets prominent roles. Rohail Nazir and Qasim Akram have both featured heavily of late. Akram in particular is a star in the making and gets runs almost always. With this being the last opportunity for this young lot to impress, we think that Akram would again rise to the occasion and do enough to at least cover the lowly 16.5-run spread. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Quetta have pressure on their shoulders whereas Karachi do not have that anymore. Therefore, we back Karachi to avenge the loss they suffered late last month in this fixture on their own turf.
