PSL Day 19 Preview: Karachi Play Zalmi For Playoff Spot While United Look to Outperform Quetta

The race for playoffs is becoming more and more interesting as Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, and Multan Sultans are in the run, with Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators having booked their ticket to Lahore (or a direct flight to Karachi) already.

Peshawar has to win the next two matches to qualify for the next round while Karachi only needs one win. Multan Sultans will be hoping to see Karachi lose its next two matches or for Zalmi to lose one of its next two.
