PSL 2023 had a dream start yesterday with one of the greatest PSL opening ceremonies, along with a last-over encounter between MS vs LQ in which Lahore won the game by just 1 run. Day one of PSL again showcased the competitiveness of this tournament and why PSL is rated among the top three cricket tournaments in the world. We have discussed the best fantasy XI team for MyStars11 along with match prediction and live streaming details for KK vs PZ match in detail below.
KK vs PZ Match Details
Yesterday, Multan hosted a PSL match while today the PSL 2023 festival will kick start in Karachi where the home team Karachi Kings will enjoy the home advantage for their first game in PSL 2023. The KK vs PZ match details is as follows.
Match: Karachi Kings vs Peshawar Zalmi, 2nd Match
Competition: Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023
Date: 14th February 2023
Time: 07:30 PST or 8:00 PM IST
Ground: National Stadium, Karachi
National Stadium, Karachi is again a nice flat deck in which the majority of the batters will enjoy playing big shots on a consistent basis. With the new ball, pacers do get a bit of movement in here due to the sea breeze in the city while spinners also come in handy in the middle overs due to the slowness of the surface. The pitch in Karachi slows down as the match progresses so powerplay will be a crucial segment of the game to post big scores or to chase down given target.
Weather in Karachi is mostly very good for cricket and we hardly see many rain interruptions at this venue. Temperatures are expected to be around 23 to 25 degrees during the game with a humidity percentage of around 22. No rain is expected during the game.
KK vs PZ Probable Playing XIs
Both the teams have some high-quality local and international players in their franchises while there is another rivalry going on between Babar, Amir & Imad. Babar Azam who used to play for Karachi Kings will now play from Peshawar Zalmi for the first time in PSL and go against his former teammates Amir, Imad & others.
Our experts predict the below-mentioned combination of players will play today’s game.
Karachi Kings: S Malik, JM Vince, Sharjeel Khan, Haider Ali, IM Wasim(C), Qasim Akram, MS Wade, Mohammad Amir, AJ Tye, Imran Tahir, Mir Hamza

KK vs PZ Match Prediction
Peshawar Zalmi has more batting depth than Karachi Kings on paper and due to the nature of the surface available, we expect Peshawar to win this game against Karachi. KK has a better bowling unit than PZ, which can prove to be a defining factor if they can get Babar’s precious wicket early along with restricting the power hitters like Rovman Powell, James Neesham, Mohammad Haris & Sherfane Rutherford.
Team Karachi will have high hopes for Haider Ali who is picked as a platinum player this year along with experienced legend Shoaib Malik to do wonders with the bat and help KK put up a winning score in case they bat first.
