THE STATISTICS

THE TEAM NEWS

LAHORE QALANDARS

Coach: Aqib Javed

Captain: Fakhar Zaman

  • Lahore Qalandars were leapfrogged in fourth place by Karachi Kings who beat the Sultans on Monday so that leaves them needing to win here to get back into the play-off places with just a handful of matches remaining.

  • The Qalandars have been dealt a huge blow by the news that AB de Villiers has a back problem that has ruled him out for the rest of the tournament so he joins Mohammad Hafeez on the sidelines to weaken their batting even further.

  • Anton Devcich is the likely replacement for De Villiers but he has had a relatively poor tournament so far and that will only increase the pressure on skipper Fakhar Zaman and their strong bowling unit.

PESHAWAR ZALMI

Coach: Mohammad Akram

Captain: Darren Sammy

  • Peshawar Zalmi were knocked off top spot themselves on Monday as they were comprehensively beaten by Quetta Gladiators by eight wickets and they will be keen to get a win here to seal their top four place.

  • The batting was a mixed bag on Monday as Kamran Akmal finally found some form with 72 from 50 balls while Pollard hit a quickfire 44 from 21 but Fletcher and Imam-ul-Haq could not score at a run a ball and that prevented them from setting a good enough total to challenge the Gladiators.
  • The bowling unit was also somewhat under par with Wahab Riaz especially looking somewhat fatigued while Umaid Asif was poor so they may well decide to make a change or two to freshen up their strong bowling attack.

THE PREDICTION

A fascinating match in store between two teams that need to win here. Zalmi were particularly disappointing on Monday against the Gladiators and will be keen to bounce back here. The Qalandars have lost De Villiers which is a huge blow to their hopes and could dent their chances of a top four place. Zalmi were average on Monday but can bounce back against a team that they have beaten six times in seven matches.
