Karachi Kings’ captain Imad Wasim has opened up after his side suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Peshawar Zalmi on Tuesday.

Kings, who are the defending champions, registered their lowest ever total, 108/9, in HBL PSL history while their bowlers were thrashed to all parts of the ground by Afghan opener Hazratullah Zazai, who scored the joint-fastest fifty in the tournament’s history of just 17 balls.

“It’s a mixture of good bowling and poor batting, they bowled really well. The thing is, they outclassed us in batting and bowling. They utilised the powerplay, we lost 3-4 wickets,” said Imad after the match. “If we’d got Zazai early we could have [done better].”

Imad was still confident about qualifying for the playoffs despite losing three matches in a row.

“We’re still well placed and there are positives for us. Nothing to lose now, we have to win both games to stay in the tournament. We have to give ourselves a chance in both batting and bowling. We’ll sit together tomorrow and come back hard, if we think we can’t do it, then there’s no point,” he concluded.
