PZ vs KK Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for PSL 2021 Eliminator 1.

The first eliminator of the ongoing second leg of the sixth season of Pakistan Super League will be played between Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings in Abu Dhabi tonight.

Having won and lost five matches each in the league phase, Peshawar is ranked third on the points table. Much like their opponents for tonight, Karachi are also coming on the back of five wins and losses each. However, it was a negative net run rate which placed them at the fourth position on the points table.

While their respective positions on the points table don’t matter much now, both Zalmi and Kings need a victory at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium to not let their PSL 2021 journey come to an end.
