LIVE: Karachi opt to bowl first against Peshawar in knockout match

Call it whatever you want: the third and final playoff, a semi-final of sorts or a knockout match, but surely this is Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi’s last chance to make it to the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final.

The match between the two teams was discussed less, while the affirmations and denials from foreign players to participate in the Lahore final kept everyone captivated in the last couple of days.

However, in the end, what matters the most is which of these two teams will win today and join the Quetta Galdiators in a bid for the ‘The Spirit Trophy’.

Majority of Peshawar players have said yes to the idea of coming to Pakistan to play the final, while Ravi Bopara, just a few hours ago, said that he will represent Karachi if they win tonight.

It’s all to play for tonight for both teams, let’s see who comes out on top!

Peshawar XI: Kamran Akmal (wk), Dawid Malan, Marlon Samuels, Mohammad Hafeez, Khushdil Shah, Darren Sammy (capt.), Shahid Afridi, Chris Jordan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Asghar.

Karachi XI: Babar Azam, Chris Gayle, Kumar Sangakkara (capt. & wk), Shoaib Malik, Ravi Bopara, Kieron Pollard, Imad Wasim, Sohail Khan, Mohammad Amir, Usama Mir, Usman Khan.
