High-flying Karachi Kings have won three and lost none of their matches so far in the third edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), with one game (against Multan Sultans) washed out due to rain.
Karachi, who revamped their squad in the PSL drafts and appointed Imad Wasim as captain, have been rewarded for the overhaul: the younger lineup, starring power hitters as well as more steady players and pacers, has overcome Quetta Gladiators, defending champions Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars.
Islamabad United have had a rollercoaster ride in the tournament, winning two and losing two of their matches thus far. The latest victory came about in a nail-biting Super Over against Lahore Qalandars on Friday, where Andre Russell held his nerve to fire his team to victory.
Karachi Kings top the table whereas Islamabad United sit at fifth position, just above Lahore Qalandars.
