Karachi Kings produced a clinical performance with bat and ball to beat Islamabad United in the last game of round-robin stage played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. There are still doubts as to whether who will lead the side for this game. Imad Wasim has not been cleared to play this one so Eoin Morgan might be stand-in captain for the side.

Lendl Simmons has been good for Kings at the top of the order after joining the franchise in the last phase of the competition. He will open the innings alongside Joe Denly who has been in good form. Denly needs to chip in with runs as Kings would be keen to post a competitive score on the board against in-form Islamabad United.
