Islamabad United have made two changes to their playing XI as they brought in star pick Dale Steyn in the line-up alongside batting sensation Rizwan Hussain.
The two players forced to face the axe are all-rounder Amad Butt and foreign recruit Dawid Malan.
Meanwhile, Karachi Kings have decided to go with the same team that crashed to a humiliating 52-run defeat to Multan Sultans on Friday.
Islamabad are placed third in the six-team table while Karachi languish on the fifth position and desperately seek a win to recoup their confidence.
Karachi Kings: Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Alex Hales, Imad Wasim (c), Chadwick Walton (wk), Cameron Delport, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Amir, Umaid Asif, Chris Jordan, Umer Khan
