Karachi Kings will take on the Multan Sultans in the second fixture of the PSL 2019 for another intriguing contest. Karachi Kings have a lot of voids to fill this season as they have quite an imbalanced side. Their batting lineup is top heavy while the middle order appears to be a bit shallow. Babar Azam and Colin Ingram have too much responsibility to provide them explosive starts. Karachi’s bowling attacks also seem to be quite fragile with the absence of any wicket-taking option.

On the contrary, Multan Sultans have a much-balanced squad in this edition of the Pakistan Super League. Having finished second in the league table last year, they would be eyeing to lift the trophy this season. Their starting lineup is pretty much expected with a right combination of local and overseas players. They had managed to grab some excellent players before the season began to boost their morale for the upcoming campaign.
