Peshawar Zalmi will take on Lahore Qalandars in the 15th match of the Pakistan Super League at Sharja Cricket Stadium on February 13th. Here’re the latest Peshawar Zalmi v Lahore Qalandars betting tips in this PSL encounter.
Considering the form of Lahore Qalandars so far, it has been a highly disappointing one. Sitting at the bottom of the table, this is certainly a surprise for many since the team boasts of renowned players like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Kevin Cooper.
They started their phase two with a defeat against Islamabad United. Having batted first, they put a target of 166 runs, which Islamabad achieved in just 16 overs. Following this stigma, they repeated the same feat against Karachi Kings too. Their bowlers took a massive beating, owing to which Kings put 178 runs on the board. Lahore Qalandars responded to this in a really disappointing manner and ended up losing the game. Their prospects of reaching the top two look bleaker by the day.
On the other hand, Peshawar Zalmi have been enjoying a rather eventful season. They have played four matches so far, and have won in three of them. As a result, they are sitting at the second place with the best net run rate of +0.667.
These statistics may have differed, had it not for the sensational match they played against Karachi Kings. They put a colossal target of 182 runs, and Kings came as close as 179 runs. However, winning that match by three runs has certainly bolstered their confidence.
Right before this crucial encounter, they will be up against Islamabad United on Friday evening. However, Shahid Afridi has done a great job as the captain and he is capable of handling the team here as well.
In their previous encounter, Peshawar Zalmi restricted Lahore to just 117 runs. They won the match easily by nine wickets. Comparing the form of these two sides, it is highly possible that we may get to witness the same feat again. Lahore Qalandars need a miracle here to see themselves through to victory.
