Gathering 3 victories in their first 5 contests, Karachi was smoothly sailing towards the play-offs of the competition. However, a washed-out game against Multan Sultans and a defeat at the hands of the arch-rivals Lahore Qalandars have dented them a bit as they now contain 7 points in as many games.
However, star Karachi batsman Alex Hales has expressed confidence to see the blue team making it to the final-four stage of the 2020 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). The 31-year old is of the view that Karachi has an explosive batting order with the dynamic players like Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan on the top, which gives them the edge.
He also detected strength in terms of bowling and fielding in Karachi’s ranks. Hales, the discarded England batsman, added that if Karachi plays according to their potential then there’s no stopping them from entering the next stage of the competition. The franchise representing the biggest city of Pakistan will play their last 3 contests against Lahore, Islamabad and Quetta.
