KAR vs PES Dream11: The eliminator match of the PSL 2021 has Karachi Kings taking on Peshawar Zalmi on Monday. Sitting at third position, Peshawar Zalmi won 5 games out of 10. They have blown hot and cold in the tournament thus far. Lack of consistency in their performances denied them the top two spots. In a must-win game for them, the likes of Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal and Hazratullah Zazai need to come up with strong performances.
Facing them are Karachi Kings, who had almost lost their place in the qualifiers had they not showcased strong performances in their last couple of matches. They are coming into the contest on the back of two consecutive wins and are sitting at 4th position with 5 wins in 10 games.
Whosoever loses this game would get knocked out from the tournament.
