Peshawar Zalmi vs Lahore Qalandars Team Previews

Peshawar Zalmi (Match Odds – 2.25)

Wahab Riaz was re-appointed captain, and their bowlers put on a poor performance in their last game against Islamabad United. The team scored 168 runs but was defeated by 9 wickets. Riaz was injured in the previous game, and the team would like to have him back. Given the batting strength they face, they will need to bowl well as a unit to win this game.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Yasir Khan struggled in the previous game, and the team will rely on them to deliver here. Shoaib Malik would have to guide the youngsters and add runs with Haider Ali and Hussain Talat in the middle order. They have powerful strikers in Ben Cutting and Sherfane Rutherford, and runs should be expected from their bats.

Sohail Khan has been costly with the new ball, and he, along with Wahab Riaz, would need to take early wickets. Usman Qadir and Patrick Brown haven’t gotten their lines right, and the team is hoping for a better performance from them in this game. Talat bowled well in the previous game and will look to bowl tight lines with Cutting and Malik in this game.

Predicted XI: Wahab Riaz (c), Tom Kohler-Cadmore (wk), Yasir Khan, Haider Ali, Hussain Talat, Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, Ben Cutting, Sohail Khan, Usman Qadir, Patrick Brown

Lahore Qalandars (Match Odds – 1.65)

The Qalandars are coming in with a resounding victory. In their most recent game, Shaheen Afridi’s team defeated the Karachi Kings by 6 wickets. Their batsmen have looked in good form in both games, but it is the bowling attack that is causing them problems. Afridi will have to lead from the front and expect his bowlers to perform better here.

Fakhar Zaman has looked in excellent form and would like to get the side off to a good start by opening with Abdullah Shafique. With Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Ghulam, and David Weise in the middle order, the side has good strength in the middle order. In this game, they would also like to see Ben Dunk, Samit Patel, and Rashid Khan score fast runs near the end.

Afridi and Zaman Khan must bowl tight lines with the new ball in this game because Peshawar Zalmi have a lot of firepower with the bat. Rashid Khan has been selected as the best bowler, and he will need to perform well in the middle overs alongside Haris Rauf. Weise, Patel, and Hafeez are experienced bowlers, and the team expects them to deliver strong performances in this game.

Lahore Qalandars Squad

Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Samit Patel, David Wiese, Ben Dunk (wk), Rashid Khan, Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan, Sohail Akhtar, Mohammad Imran Randhawa, Ahmed Daniyal, Dean Foxcroft, Matty Potts, Maaz Khan, Akif Javed, Zeeshan Ashraf, Syed Faridoun

Predicted XI: Shaheen Afridi (c), Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafique, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Ghulam, Samit Patel, Ben Dunk (wk), David Wiese, Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan

To Win the Toss – Lahore Qalandars – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

With a flat track and a fast outfield, National Stadium Karachi has one of the best batting surfaces in Pakistan. It is a difficult venue for fast bowlers in this format of the game because there is no assistance for them. Spinners benefit greatly from the surface because the ball grips it and turns sharply.

On February 2, the skies over Karachi would be clear. The surface would be flat, as seen in all of the games played here, and ideal for batting during the game. Bowlers are likely to struggle, and a side batting first would need 180 runs to feel safe on this track.

Peshawar Zalmi vs Lahore Qalandars Match Prediction

Peshawar Zalmi enters this game after suffering a crushing defeat. Their bowling attack was annihilated in the previous game, and they would need to make significant improvements in this area to win the game here. The Lahore Qalandars have a very strong batting lineup and an excellent record against Zalmi. This would make them the odds-on favourite to win this game.

Lahore Qalandars is the favourite to beat Peshawar Zalmi at the odds of 1.65.

  • Fakhar Zaman has already scored 182 runs for the Lahore Qalandars in two games, and he appears to be in great form.
  • Lahore Qalandars have won the last four games against Peshawar Zalmi, which bodes well for them.
  • Peshawar Zalmi have struggled with their bowling, with no bowler standing out so far, which is concerning.
