LQ vs PZ Team Previews

Lahore Qalandars

The defending champions are in the midst of a terrible run of form as they have lost each of the 6 matches played so far and are firmly placed at the bottom of the points table. With just 4 more matches to go, the Qalandars will be desperate for a win if they want to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Barring Rassie van der Dussen and Shabizada Farhan, the batting for Lahore has been underwhelming, to say the least. Van der Dussen is having an excellent series in terms of personal performance and is 2nd on the list of top scorers for the season.

Sahibzada has scored 3 half-centuries in 6 innings and can be a valuable asset at the top of the order. However, the middle order consisting of Sikandar Raza, Carlos Brathwaite, and Jahandad Khan has failed to fire. Fakhar Zaman too has struggled to get going and is averaging only 15.5 in 6 innings.

Shaheen Shah Afridi has bowled well to pick up 9 wickets but the unavailability of Haris Rauf has left a big dent in the seam attack. The spinners too have failed to pick up wickets and are quite expensive.

Peshawar Zalmi

After a relatively quiet start, Peshawar has gradually picked up pace and has won each of its last 3 matches. As a result, it is currently placed 3rd on the points table.

Babar Azam is in scintillating form and is also the leading run-scorer of the season with 330 runs. He, along with Saim Ayub makes up for a potent opening pair and will look to give the team a strong start. Rovman Powell has played a couple of good knocks in the lower order and can add valuable runs towards the end of the innings.

However, the middle order hasn’t been in the best of forms. Mohammad Haris, Haseebullah Khan, and Asif Ali have all struggled to score runs and they will be expected to put up a better effort. Arif Yaqoob picked up a fifer in the last match and is now the leading wicket-taker for the team. He will feature in the spin department along with Saim Ayub.

Naveen Ul-Haq, Salman Irshad, and Luke Wood have bowled well in patches and will lead the attack with the new ball.

Pitch and Conditions

The Rawalpindi Stadium offers a balanced track, providing equal opportunities to the batsmen and the bowlers. The average first-inning score on this ground is around 160, which is a par score. The quicker bowlers will get some swing as well as movement from the seam, and the batsmen will need to be careful when the ball is new.

The weather in Rawalpindi is likely to be overcast and there will be some rain, leading to interruptions. 


LQ vs PZ Betting Tips

Peshawar Zalmi has played some excellent cricket over the last week and seems to have found a good balance of players in the team. On the other hand, Lahore has struggled throughout this season and will find it difficult to bounce back.

Bet on Peshawar Zalmi to win.

    Lahore Qalandars to win the toss



The Peshawar Zalmi has won only 1 toss in their last 4 matches this season, while the Lahore Qalandars have won 3 of their last 5. Therefore, the Lahore Qalandars are more likely to win the toss.

  1. Baji


    Babar Azam to be the top-scorer for Peshawar Zalmi



Babar Azam has been in brilliant form this season and is the leading run-scorer for the team. He has scored at least 30 runs in each of his 5 innings, and his knocks include 2 half-centuries and a century. We are therefore backing him to be the top-scorer for Peshawar.

  1. Satbet


    Shaheen Shah Afridi to be the top bowler of the match



Shaheen Afridi has been in good form of late. He has picked up at least 2 wickets in 3 of his last 4 outings and is also the leading wicket-taker for Lahore Qalandars. Since the pitch at Rawalpindi does help the seamers, there is a good chance that Afridi will bowl yet another good spell in this match.
