Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions PSL- Lahore Qalandars v Peshawar Zalmi
It's not that Lahore Qalandars have performed badly but they have been struggling with their consistency.
So much so that they have not won or lost two matches in a row. If they win one, they lose the next match and vice versa. The fact that they lost their last match against Karachi Kings should give them a lot of hope if the trend continues.
Peshawar Zalmi lost their opening match to Quetta Gladiators but have since won five from their next six games. Shaheen Shah Afridi could not play the last match because of a bit of a niggle and Aizaz Cheema was given a nod in his place. However, Afridi is expected to be back in this match.
AB de Villiers is their most impressive batsman and has scored 218 runs from just seven matches at an average of over 50. He top-scored in their last match as well. Fakhar Zaman is another batsman who has notched up two half-centuries.
Haris Rauf has picked up 11 wickets for the team while Sandeep Lamichhane has set the stage on fire and backed up his career best figures with 2-17 against Karachi Kings in the last match.
For Peshawar Zalmi, Kamran Akmal came back to some form in the last match and played a useful hand. Imam-ul-Haq and Liam Dawson have been the leading batters for the side while Kieron Pollard and Andre Fletcher can also make an impact on a given day.
Hasan Ali has been their trump card and has picked up 18 wickets from seven matches while Wahab Riaz has 10.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Lahore Qalandars- Fakhar Zaman, Gauhar Ali, Haris Sohail, Ryan ten Doeschate, Corey Anderson, David Wiese, Sohail Akhtar, Sandeep Lamichhane, Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
Peshawar Zalmi- Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal, Andre Fletcher, Umar Amin, Liam Dawson, Kieron Pollard, Darren Sammy, Hasan Ali, Tymal Mills, Wahab Riaz, Sameen Gul
