It is the start of the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League and in match number six of this season, Karachi Kings will be up against Islamabad United. The National Stadium in Karachi will be the venue for this fixture.

Karachi Kings are the defending champions and they have been one of the most consistent teams in the history of the PSL. They have made it to the knockouts in every single season.
