Match 17: PES vs KAR



The 17th match of the Pakistan T20 League will be played between PES and KAR on Wednesday 01st, March 2023, at 07:30 PM IST in Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi. PES scored 201/9 in their 20 overs, failing to chase a mammoth target of 242 runs. However, with two early wickets, Tom Kohlmore (55 runs) and Saim Ayub (51 runs) turned the tables on the opposition. In the middle order, Bhanuka Rajapaksa (24 runs), Rovman Powell (20 runs), and Saad Masood (16 runs) made some brave cameo appearances.

In the previous game, their bowlers were hauled for 241 runs. Wahab Riaz took two wickets. In the game, all their bowlers went for runs at above 11 RPO, except for Arshad Iqbal (4-0-28-0). Saad Masood, James Neesham, Salman Irshad, and Rovman Powell need the X-factor or the ability to take wickets when they bowl.

In their most recent game, KAR scored 167 runs, which was a respectable total. The leading run scorer was Tayyab Tahir scored 65 runs off 46 balls as the leading run-scorer. Mathew Wade provided substantial assistance with 46 runs at the top on a run-a-ball. Imad Wasim and James Vince both had aggressive hits to start their innings. Ben Cutting and Shoaib Malik provide their lineup depth.

To bundle out the opposition for 101 runs, their spinners ran riot. In the previous game, the spin combo of Imad Wasim (2/34), Shoaib Malik (3/16), and Tabraiz Shamsi (3/18) together claimed 8 wickets. Akif Javed grabbed two wickets to support the spinners in the previous game. Important figures: Imad Wasim, James Vince, and Tabraiz Shamsi

Teams are battling hard to stay in the top half of the points table as the PAK T20 League enters the middle part of the league stages. After losing their first three games, the KAR has had a successful comeback, winning two of their past three games. However, with two recent defeats in two games, PES needs help and hopes to resume their winning ways.

Match Prediction

Both sides have strong hitting lineups that have played well in recent games. The spinners for the KAR are Sikander Raza, Imad Wasim, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Shoaib Malik. While PES has a potent batting lineup, they are inexperienced on significant stages and lack talented spinners. Therefore, we anticipate KAR to prevail in this game.
