This has by far been the most exciting Pakistan Super League ever, with packed stadiums; star studded teams and thrilling encounters. Apart from which, we have witnessed big individual scores throughout the tournament. For instance, the highest scores by a batsman from the Islamabad United line up in the last five matches – 25, 77, 87, 85, 63, with three scores above 64 runs and one just short by two. On the other hand, Karachi Kings’ top scorers registered – 74, 80, 70, 52, 29, with three instances supporting our cause. Meanwhile, in the last H2H match, Luke Ronchi scored a blistering 85-run knock.
Overall, four batsmen from Karachi Kings have scored 64 runs at least once in this tournament which includes a top score of 80 by Alex Hales. On the other hand, three players from Islamabad United have done the same while with Colin Munro’s 87-run knock being the top score, while Luke Ronchi getting past the threshold a total of two times this season. With all the stats pointing towards one direction, we don’t have any reason not to invest in this deal.
Islamabad United might be at the wrong side of the points table at the present moment, but their batsman have never been shy to hit the big ones, no matter what the situation was. With odds of 1.90 listed for them to hit eight boundaries or more in the next match, this is an investment which promises returns. In the last five matches, they have managed to hit a total of 40 sixes at an average of eight per innings. Out of which, three Islamabad managed to clear the ropes at least eight times in three of those matches. If that still doesn’t make you comfortable, I will give you more.
Overall, Islamabad registered a total of 61 sixes in eight matches at an average of 7.62 per innings. In the last five H2H matches, United have struck a total of 25 sixes, having hit at least eight in as many games. Meanwhile, Shadab Khan, who is the second joint highest six hitter this season with 15 hits in eight matches (almost two per game) plays for them alongside Colin Munro, who has an identical record. Do you see any reason not to invest on this bet?
The National Stadium, in Karachi, has aided batsmen historically and the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League is no exception. But the openers have not made the most out of it. In the five matches played here, the opening stands in the first innings were – 49, 31, 33, 25, 1, with the openers putting up a total of 138 runs at an average of 27.6 runs per game. As visible, four of them were above 23 runs or above. Then why did I root for the openers to score less than 23 runs for the first wicket stand?
In the five matches that Islamabad played, their opening stands were as follows – 26, 6, 103, 2, 11, having scored 148 runs at a rate of almost 30 runs per innings. But, they have been inconsistent and managed to score north of 22 just twice in the above mentioned cases. Meanwhile, Karachi Kings’ opening stands in their past five matches – 151, 10, 4, 0, 19, having scored 23 or above in just one of the above mentioned cases. Even in the last H2H match between these two teams, Colin Munro was dismissed in the second over of the match when Islamabad’s score was 2. I guess you have got enough reasons to risk your money for this offer.
Babar Azam is the top Pakistani batsman by quite some distance and backing him to score just three boundaries in home conditions can be the easiest way to make money this weekend. In the last five matches, Azam had scored a total of 25 boundaries at a rate of five per innings and managed to hit more than three or more in three of those matches. Overall, in this season, the opener has managed to hit a massive 37 fours (the most by any player) in the seven innings he played so far, maintaining an average of over five hits per game. Babar is the outright favourite to win us this bet.
Meanwhile, Babar has hit at least four boundaries in four of the seven times he’s been at the middle. The right hander has played three matches at the National Stadium, in Karachi, this season, having hit a total of 20 fours at a rate of over six per innings. He managed to hit at least four in each of those games. Overall, Azam featured in 140 T20 (136 innings) matches in his career, in which he managed to rack up 484 boundaries at an average of 3.55 per innings. A can sense victory on the other side, just place your bets quickly.
Luke Ronchi has been one of the most successful Kiwi batsmen in the history of the PSL and has been influential in this season as well. What’s more consistent than his scoring has been the rate at which he has hit sixes over the tournament. In the last five matches, Ronchi has hit a total of six maximums, having hit at least once in each game. Overall, in eight matches, the Kiwi has cleared the ropes a total of nine, having stuck at least once in seven of those games. Can you imagine the probability of winning this particular bet?
In the last match he played at the National Stadium, in Karachi, he managed to hit a six en-route to his 23-run innings. Even in the previous edition of the league, Ronchi managed to hit a total of 17 sixes in 12 matches, having hit at least once in eight of them. Overall, in 169 domestic T20 matches, the former International has hit a total of 178 matches at a rate of more than one six per match. With 1.61 times the investment on offer, it would be foolish not to invest on this deal.
Another Kiwi in our list, Colin Munro has been giving great starts to his team in the ongoing PSL and backing him for scoring just 25 runs is likely to be a smart move, especially with odds of 1.83 offered by bet 365. In the last five matches, Colin Munro’s scores were – 25, 52, 87, 1, 31, having scored a total of 196 runs at an average of almost 40 runs per innings, having scored at least 25 runs in four of those matches. As visible, the southpaw is a hard but to crack in the initial overs of the game and is likely to emulate the same in the upcoming match.
Having played nine matches in this season, Munro has racked up 248 runs at an average of 35.43 runs per innings. As a matter of fact, he has managed to get past the 24-run mark in five of the above mentioned cases. In 262 T20 he’s featured in, the Kiwi has managed to accumulate 6308 runs at rate of 29.06 runs, which also supports our case, making this a bet which promises guaranteed returns. I hope you have placed the bet till now.
