Islamabad United will take on Lahore Qalanders in the 12th match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 at the National Stadium in Karachi on February 5, 2022 (Saturday).
Both Islamabad United and Lahore Qalanders have won two games each in their three-match sojourn in the Pakistan Super League so far, but by virtue of having a better run rate, the Islamabad side have found themselves a touch above their weekend opponents. On Thursday, Paul Stirling and Colin Munro led the baton to a drizzling height in a Karachi run-fest that downed Quetta Gladiators, who despite Ahsan Ali’s stunning performance, couldn’t reach the target. On the other hand, Lahore Qalandars won by 29 runs against Peshawar Zalmi at the National Stadium, Karachi.
The highest run-scorer in the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League, Zaman’s stocks are on a rise. The Lahore opener has also piled on 248 runs at an average of 82.66 in three games, including a century and a couple of fifties. That he has achieved all these in just three games makes for a great story and one can surely be confident that Zaman will have it big against Islamabad United on Saturday. Zaman has 4551 runs at an average of 27.92 in 179 T20Is and has 32 fifty-plus scores in the process. In the ongoing tournament, he has scored 76, 106, and 66 respectively, making a case for himself as the biggest batter in the next game. In 111 domestic T20s, his average stands at 29.72 and in wins, it becomes 34.35. That is a sign of a gifted cricketer who never had it difficult to score runs consistently. For the Lahore Qalanders side, Zaman has scored 1533 runs - the most he has for any side in his T20 career - and given his average of 30.06, you can understand why is such a high-profile name. Watch out for this market on Parimatch and take home a great deal of cash.
Paul Stirling has taken the Pakistan Super League like a duck to water and has piled on 134 runs in three games at an average of 44.66, including a couple of half-centuries. He is currently the highest run-scorer from Islamabad United and rightfully so, struck those runs at a rate of 212.69. This is incredible. Further, Paul Stirling has an average of 26.75 and a strike rate of 143.01 in his T20 career but in T20Is, his number is even more impressive - where he averages 30.30, which means when the stakes are high, Stirling tends to overperform. The same can be considered as one of the reasons for his performance in the ongoing Pakistan Super League. Stirling averages 36.61 in wins and has an almost identical record while batting first and batting second. For Islamabad United, Stirling averages 44.66 with the bat and he backs that up with a super show with the bat in 2021 where he averaged close to 30. In fact, his consistency is one of the reasons why Stirling is considered such a bit bet. Hence, my suggestion would be to stick to the philosophy and ensure to take away a lot of cash this week.
Colin Munro smashed a 39-ball 72 at a strike rate of 184.62 and that typifies the impact that the former Kiwi batter brings to the table. The No.1 batter in the ICC T20I ranking for the majority of his career, Munro brings such a calming effect to the side which is best enjoyed by the middle-order batters. The Kiwi man averages 30.38 in his T20 career, with that number shooting upto 37.00 in wins. While batting first, Munro averages a stunning 35.09 but his batting second performance, despite having a negative differential. In 15 matches for Islamabad United, Munro averages 44.42 and his numbers against Lahore Qalanders is solid 29.75. Munro averages 31.00 in Pakistan, which further boosts his average. In the 2021 Pakistan Super League, Munro’s score stands at 57.00 per dismissal and in the previous year, his average was a cool 41.97. All these points to the fact that Munro can be a big wealth creator and you can be a part of the same by betting big on Parimatch.
