Lahore Qalandars will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the first match of the Pakistan Super League at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 6th February. Here’re the latest Lahore Qalandars v Peshawar Zalmi betting tips in this PSL encounter.
Despite the fact that Lahore Qalandars have got themselves a pretty strong squad, Peshawar Zalmi are capable of putting up a good fight and quite possibly, seeing through to the win.
The bowling line-up is mainly set to be dominated by the Australian pacer Shaun Tait, who is quite a specialist when it comes to T20 format. He has had some remarkable stints in the Big Bash League, and it will be intriguing to see if he can replicate his success here as well.
However, their experience in the middle order is particularly interesting, seeing that Darren Sammy and Shahid Afridi lead the charge. While Sammy took West Indies to the ultimate glory in 2012 ICC World T20, Afridi has many records in the format and also is the captain of the national T20 team. These two players are truly capable of giving their opponents a run for their money.
As for Lahore Qalandars, their debut in the tournament turned out to be quite a disastrous one. With their big guns such as Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo failing miserably, other players too failed to step up. As a result, they could set just 125 runs on the board. Bravo managed to hit 14, while Gayle was caught out on six. The team’s leading scorer was Mohammad Rizwan, who scored 37 off 31 balls.
As expected, their opponents Karachi Kings sailed to a comfortable victory. Having lost the match, a win here is absolutely essential for the team. However, that may be quite a task, considering the form of the players. Peshwar have got a decent bowling attack and if Lahore Qalandars fall prey to it, then things may get difficult. However, if Gayle manages to find his rhythm, then the fans are in for a treat. This is going to be a brilliant match to see.
