Having enjoyed a brilliant group stage run, Lahore Qalandars amassed a whopping 10 points in as many games to book a spot in the knockout stages. Pipping Quetta Gladiators to fourth-place by a hair’s breadth, Peshawar Zalmi can count themselves a tad lucky to have qualified for the playoffs.Bet Now!
They may not have the most talented squad, but this LQ side are a spirited bunch driven to achieve massive success. Yellow Storm had been on a seven-game losing streak to PZ before finally defeating this bogey team in their final group stage game.
Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn combined brilliantly to propel LQ to an important victory on the day. Now, the players will be brimming with confidence ahead of this clash, knowing they have every chance of sneaking a result past this stubborn PZ outfit.
However, PZ will not feel too disheartened by their regular season run, given they managed to advance to the playoffs. Now, competing in one-off games, there is no margin for error as one slip-up could spell doom for Dama Dam Mast.
PZ will have to make do without some of their international stars – Lewis Gregory, Liam Dawson, Tom Banton and Liam Livingston all unavailable for selection. However, the recruitment of former CSK batsman Faf du Plessis should bolster this depleted squad.
In sharp contrast, LQ have a wealth of decent batsmen in their lineup. In games of this stature, there are fine margins between losses and wins, and this single factor could just push LQ to a hard-fought win in this encounter.
