Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions: Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021 – Pune Devils v Qalandars - Match 4
Qalandars won 3 out of their 6 matches in the Super league of the Abu Dhabi T10 2019 to finish on the 2nd spot.
In the 2019 edition, Dawid Malan was the leading run scorer for Qalandars making 175 runs in 9 games played. His strike rate was above 150 and he was an important asset for Qalandars. However, he would not be able to provide his services for Qalandars this season therefore all eyes will be on Philip Salt and Tom Banton in the batting department.
Philip Salt made 164 runs in 9 matches at a strike rate of 178.26 while Tom Banton averaged 40.50 for his 162 runs at an astonishing strike rate of 200. Given that both these players will be available for tomorrow’s game, they will certainly play an important role in boosting the batting lineup of Qalandars.
Another addition this season is Shahid Afridi who seems to defy his age mechanism by playing like a 20 year old consistently. Fayyaz Ahmed, who had a terrific run in the Emirates D20 is also expected to give memorable performances for Qalandars this season.
With the ball, Chris Jordan will be vested with the responsibility to crush the opposition with his superb death bowling. He took 6 wickets last season at an average of 12.33 and played an important role in Qalandar’s road to the playoffs. Samit Patel and Sohail Tanvir are also expected to leave a mark with their presence this season for Qalandars.
Pune Devils are coming into this game fresh out of a glorious victory against Deccan Gladiators in their recently completed match. After winning the toss, they invited Deccan Gladiators to have a bat first. Nasir Hossain ran through the top order and removed both Sunil Narine and Mohammad Shahzad cheaply. Keiron Pollard was the next one to follow as he made just 2 runs in 6 balls. Just when it looked like Gladiators won’t be able to reach a respectable total, Cameron Delport and Azam Khan both played gem of an innings to take their team total to 104 for 5 in 10 overs. Azam Khan scored a breathtaking 37 off just 13 deliveries and tonked 4 sixers in the process.
Chasing 104, Kennar Lewis led the way with phenomenal hitting and once his partners were dismissed in the form of Chadwick Walton and Tom Kohler Cadmore, he just went berserk and carted the bowlers to all parts of the ground for his unbeaten knock of 57 off just 28 deliveries. He was the lone warrior for Pune Devils and won the match for his team comfortably in the 10th over of the innings.
