PSL 2022 is going to kick off with a match between the Karachi Kings and the Multan Sultans. There is just so much quality to look forward to in the Pakistan Super League every year that it is no surprise that the Pakistan national team is one of the strongest in the T20 format in the world.
Cricket betting sites are favoring the Karachi Kings to win this match. That is a bit surprising because the Multan Sultans (the defending PSL champions) have one of the strongest squads in PSL 2022 as well.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Karachi Kings vs Multan Sultans PSL 2022. The match is going to be played at the National Stadium, Karachi on the 27th of January 2022.
The Karachi Kings are always going to attract a lot of attention because of the presence of Babar Azam in their team. As one of the world's best batsmen, Babar Azam is the biggest draw in the Karachi Kings lineup. He is also one of the most consistent performers in the PSL.
His opening partnership with Sharjeel Khan is going to be very crucial to the success of the Karachi Kings.
Both players carried the batting lineup last season and would be hoping for some more support this time around. Joe Clarke, Mohammad Nabi, and Sahibzada Farhan are likely to all feature in the lineup while the job of providing the impetus in the middle may be left to Lewis Gregory and Imad Wasim.
The Karachi Kings have also picked up two lesser-known English players, Tom Lammonby and Ian Cockbain, to try and bolster their batting. A concerted effort to try and bolster the middle-order could pay dividends for the Karachi Kings, however, relying on untested players to perform in the PSL could backfire on them as well.
Umaid Asif, Romario Shepherd, and Mohammad Amir will lead the bowling attack for the Karachi Kings. There is no shortage of bowling quality in any PSL team and that is also the case in the Karachi Kings.
The Karachi Kings have a well-balanced team but we are still worried about their batting depth and the reliance on untested players to bolster their middle-order.
Joe Clarke, Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Taha, Tom Lammonby, Mohammad Nabi, Lewis Gregory, Umaid Asif, Mohammad Ilyas, Aamer Yamin, Mohammad Imran.
The Multan Sultans were phenomenal in the second half of the PSL last season. They were led brilliantly by Mohammad Rizwan with the bat and Shahnawz Dahani with the ball. Both of them are part of the squad that largely remains the same as last season.
Ten out of the eleven players that played the PSL Final in 2021 are also a part of the squad for PSL 2022.
This continuity is a huge advantage and we have seen T20 teams in leagues across the world enjoy a lot of success by banking on continuity.
Apart from Rizwan in the batting lineup, Sohaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Tim David, and Johnson Charles are also in the squad and should all feature in the batting lineup. That is a lot of power and we think the Multan Sultans may hold the advantage over the Karachi Kings in this aspect.
Imran Khan, Blessing Muzarabani, Imran Tahir, and Shahnawz Dhahani form what is another very strong bowling attack.
The spin-bowling lineup seems to be a bit weak and has to depend on Imran Tahir to perform in every match but even at this age, Tahir is a player that commands his place in the side.
Mohammad Rizwan, Sohaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Shan Masood, Khushdil Shah, Ihsanullah Janat, David Willey, Tim David, Imran Tahir, Shahnawaz Dhani, Imran Khan.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. We saw chasing be a huge advantage in the Karachi leg of PSL 2021 and the same may be the case this time as well. There is no reason to expect something different this time around so you should take that into consideration while placing your bets.

The conditions in Karachi are going to be very good for cricket. There is no chance of rain forecast and the pitch is going to be as flat as a pancake. The batsmen will enjoy how the ball comes on to the bat and the outfield will be lightning fast as well. Something around 170-180 is the least that teams batting first will aim for.
