4 reasons why Karachi Kings will the PSL final and 3 reasons why they won’t
Babar Azam (will):
There is nothing to understand here, all you need to know that Babar Azam is the best batsman in T20 and he alone can easily win you a match.
Dependent (will not):
Karachi Kings are very dependent on Babar Azam and if he doesn’t perform, the whole batting line-up will crumble against a very strong Lahore Qalandars bowling line-up.
Inspirational Dean Jones (will):
Since the death of Kings’ batting coach, the team has decided that they will give their everything for their late coach who for the first time in KK’s history, leas them to a final.

Weak middle order (will not):
Karachi Kings are all about starting strong and if it fails they lower their chances of a good total. With the middle order that consists of Imad Wasim, Sherfane Rutherford, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Chadwick Walton (who are not solid batsmen) there is a lot to worry about.
Home advantage (will):
The home advantage might play a pivotal role in Karachi Kings’ mindset. Players might feel less under pressure and a bit more relaxed.
Bowling crisis (will not):
KK have good all round bowlers but they don’t have the kind of bowler who people are afraid of like Haris Rauf(for his pace) or Shaheen Afridi (for swing deliveries). Mohammad Amir possess both these qualities but him not in form is an enormous negative for the Kings.
Head to Head advantage (will):
Karachi and Lahore have faced each other 10 times and the head to head record is in advantage of Karachi Kings with 6 victories and 4 defeats. This can be a confidence gainer for the side and a way to lift the first PSL trophy in the history of Karachi Kings.
