Lahore Qalandars to win
Things have been pretty evenly poised in the PSL Points Table and it’s no different when Lahore and Peshawar will go head to head in this encounter. Despite Lahore being second on the points table and Peshawar at the fourth spot, there is a difference of only one point between the two sides with both having playing the same number of games.
The Qalandars have six points from six matches with three wins to their name while Zalmi are on five. That includes an abandoned game due to rain.
What makes it interesting is that the Lahore side has been struggling but even then have managed to register those three victories including one in their previous game which went down to the wire. Mohammad Sami was bowling the last over and the Qalandars needed six to win from five balls with Grant Elliot on strike.
And much like how Elliot had smashed Dale Steyn for a six in that last over of the 2015 World Cup semi-final against South Africa, he did the same in this game to seal the win for New Zealand. And his bat-dropping celebration has already become a rage for PSL fans around the world.
On the other hand, Zalmi will know a loss here will put them in a dangerous position.That’s because if the Karachi Kings win their game against the Quetta Gladiators on Thursday, it will mean that a defeat here will push the Zalmis down to the bottom spot, one point behind every other team and having also played an extra game.
Peshawar are coming off a defeat at the hands of Karachi and a lot of the blame could be put down to their bowlers who struggled to restrict the Kings. Chasing 175 was never going to be easy on the Sharjah pitches and while they tried to make a match out of it, they still fell nine runs short of the target.
