Quetta Gladiators will take on bottom-placed Karachi Kings in the 28th game of the Pakistan Super League at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on February 20, 2022 (Sunday).
Two laggards of the tournament and eerily similar fortunes. The afternoon battle on Saturday will be a game between two sides, who have found themselves at the fifth and sixth position on the points table. While their playoffs chances are all but over, they can console themselves by winning a few games from here in order to salvage some pride.
There is nothing that can be said about Babar Azam that hasn’t been spoken more eloquently and steadily earlier. He is a run-machine and one, who doesn’t stop at all. His propensity to score runs at a healthy margin all the time has only added to his aura in the Pakistan Super League, in which he averages 38.37 this season. In the ongoing edition, the Pakistan skipper has amassed 307 runs in 9 games at a strike rate of 120.39. In the Pakistan Super League, he averages 42.45 historically with 23 fifty-plus scores in total. His average increases to 54.57 in the Pakistan Super League win for his sides while his average of 35.17 in losses tells us he is such a lone-ranger. In 29 PSL matches at home, Babar scores 52.7 runs per dismissal. You can figure out the impact he has had as a batter. His world dominance might not have helped the Karachi Kings but the fact of the matter is a rather arbitrary one. Hence, go ahead and bet big on the T20 master to ensure a lot of cash is generated on a Sunday afternoon.
In just five matches this season, Will Smeed has scored 230 runs at an average of 46.00 and a strike rate of 140.24. With a couple of fifties, Smeed has just confirmed what was widely believed as his strong point - an unbelievable ability to score frankly. In 24 T20 matches, Smeed has an average of 32.23 and a strike rate of 132.5 and has four half-centuries already against his name. In the last five innings, his scores read - 1, 99, 3, 30, and 97. That he has missed out on centuries in the last five innings by one and three runs respectively has a detailed understanding of how Smeed operated as a batter. The signs are all there and you can bet big on a youngster from Somerset who made a lot of noise, playing for Lancashire Thunders in the inaugural The Hundred competition. Hence, go ahead and put your money on Smeed to score over 22 runs in order to make a lot of quick bucks. Our affiliate partner, Parimatch will take care of you in that regard.
Jason Roy has been in some serious kind of form in the PSL and since his late arrival in the season, he has scored 221 runs at an average of 44.20. The English opener has struck them at 193.85 with a century and a fifty to his name. Roy has always been a big-hitter and in his T20 career, he has scored runs at an average of 28.37 and a strike rate of 143.6. In the process, he has five centuries and 46 fifties against his name to ensure a legacy is well-built. In the Pakistan Super League alone, Roy, the Surrey batter, has averaged 37.78 alone to go with a strike rate of 144.7. A balls per dismissal ratio of 26.1 has played right to his table to make sure that Roy has platinum of experience to guide Quetta Gladiators through the chartered waters. Further, in his T20 career, Roy has scored at an average of 37.83 in Pakistan – the highest he has ever had after Sri Lanka where he has played only one game. Hence, it is a no-brainer why you should bet on him and hope to get a big return as well.
