Lahore Qalanders, who have already qualified for the play-offs, aspired to challenge Multan Sultans’ position in the PSL 2021-22 by beating Karachi Kings, who before Friday’s encounter, hadn’t won a single match in the tournament. However, Mir Hamza’s career-best spell helped Karachi end the losing streak in the Pakistan Super League with a 22-run win. On the other hand, Islamabad United, with four wins from eight games, have found themselves at the fourth position - a fairly unstable position, especially in this time of the tournament. Both sides will have enough incentives to look past the basic mark and register a win in order to have the best position on the table.
On Friday’s encounter, Fakhar Zaman could score just one run but that is probably an aberration in a love story that has lasted as long as this Pakistan Super League season. In the ongoing season, the Pakistan opener scored 470 runs in 8 matches at an average of 58.75 and a strike rate of 162.62. In those eight matches, he has piled on a century and five half-centuries and before last night’s 1 against Karachi Kings, his lowest score was just 38. It tells you the impact of a batter who is in the pink of his form, letting the world know that he was never a fluke. The 31-year-old has amassed 4773 runs in 184 T20 matches with a strike rate of 135.17. With 35 fifty-plus scores in his T20 career, Zaman has ensured that he is more than what the world perceives him as a fine operator with the bat. Hence, there is should be no money left to bet on this, go and make it big on Parimatch.
Shadab Khan is a force of nature. Be it with the ball, or his scathing batting display or acrobatic fielding - he has always held his own in the truest sense possible. While Alex Hales has been the biggest differentiator for the Islamabad side, he has pulled himself out of the league to get enough break ahead of the Indian Premier League next month. In such a situation, skipper Shadab will be a force to be reckoned with. In the ongoing season, Shadab Khan has already amassed 232 runs at an average of 38.66 and a strike rate of 165.71. With two half-centuries on board already, Shadab has shown all the signs of a true all-rounder. He has 1659 runs at an average of 19.29 in his T20 career but the fact is he has a second-wind to his career makes sure that there is a lot of hopes pinned on him. Come Saturday’s encounter, we can hope him to go big once again and render us a fine cocktail of money from our assorted bets, curated from our affiliate Partner Parimatch.
Lahore Qalanders have been very good in the powerplay and in the middle overs, having scored an average of 89 runs in the first 10 overs of the innings during the first eight games of the season. Their success has majorly been down to how their opener Fakhar Zaman and No.3 Kamran Ghulam have operated. While Zaman has scored 470 runs at a strike rate of 162.62, Kamran Ghulam has scored at 123 to be a perfect foil for Lahore’s madness. Hence, David Wiese has a strike rate of 165.38 as well, and him being in prime form has helped the cause. Further, Lahore is the most successful side in the powerplay this season, having scored at an average of 56.23 while they have no real distant competetion. Hence, you would assume that Lahore Qalanders have the biggest advantage here, and you can be beneficial from the same as well with Parimatch providing a top-op of 89% premium.
