Pakistan T20 League 2023

Match 21: ISL vs QUE

 

Preview

The 21st game of the PAK T20 League will be played between ISL and QUE in Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi, on Sunday, 5th March 2023, at 07:30 PM IST. ISL will be confident after defeating the KAR in a game with a good margin. On the other hand, the QUE is having trouble, as they lost to the LAH in their most recent match.

The QUE is no longer in the running to go to the next round. The batting order has to break out of its shell after hitting a difficult stretch. Five of the team's six games have ended in losses. In the previous three seasons, ISL has defeated the QUE in four of the five games. Whether the QUE can turn this game around remains to be seen.

The team led by Shadab Khan played well against the KAR in the most recent match. Even though the team's bowling was terrible, and they let up many runs, their batting lineup put up an excellent display to help them win with 6 wickets in hand. Khan will want to win this game and climb the points standings since their opponents need help.

The team's batting lineup is strengthened by Alex Hales and Colin Munro, who hope to establish a significant opening wicket partnership. They will be confident since Rassie van der Dussen, Faheem Ashraf, and Azam Khan performed nicely in the middle order. In addition, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, and Tom Curran are expected to provide runs for the team, which makes the batting of the deep.

The team's bowling will need to become better. Hasan Ali and Rumman Raees must bowl clear spells with the new ball in this match. In the last game, Faheem Ashraf and Tom Curran let runs in and need to bowl better lines. Mubasir Khan and Shadab Khan must take advantage of the circumstances and control the scoring pace.

QUE has lost its way. The team's recent loss against the LAH by 17 runs resulted from poor play at the top. The side is suffering as a result of the uneven top order. Sarfaraz wants his team to perform well in the next game despite having little chance of advancing to the following round.

The team will be looking for a strong performance from Yasir Khan and Will Smeed, who both started the most recent game. He must perform well when Iftikhar Ahmed and Mohammad Hafeez are in the middle order alongside Martin Guptill, who has needed help with his needed help. After that, Nawaz, Odean Smith, and Sarfaraz Ahmed will be required to provide the heavy hitting down the order.

Naseem Shah and Odean Smith must bowl precise bowling spells with the new ball since ISL's top order is in terrific shape. On the other hand, Hazeez and Naveen-ul-Haq have a lot of experience, which they must use in this game. Therefore, Mohammad Nawaz and Umaid Asif must cast effective spells for their team in this encounter.

 

Match Details

Match: ISL vs QUE, 21st Match, Pakistan T20 League, 2023

Date: Sunay, March 05, 2023

Time: 07:30 PM

Venue: Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi

 

Pitch and Weather Report

The outfield is quick, and the track is flat at Pindi Club Ground. Without the benefit of the surface, it is a challenging pitch for fast bowlers. On this surface, batters may play on-the-up and score runs. When the ball holds the surface and rotates swiftly, spinners benefit significantly from the surface.

In the past, we have often seen that the teams chasing the score were successful. Defending scores on this surface is challenging because of the better wicket. The team that wins the toss will attempt to capitalize on this by choosing to bowl first.

It will have bright skies, and we anticipate a fantastic game of cricket. However, the evening would be warm and muggy. The temperature will range between 27℃ - 12℃ with a wind speed of 10 km/h in the east direction.

Match Prediction

The QUE is having difficulties, and their top order has proved unreliable. In addition, they must overcome the scoring rate issue that has plagued most of their batters. QUE had been beaten by ISL earlier in the year. However, their upper echelon is in excellent shape. That will make them the contest's favorites. ISL will triumph in this game as per the team’s form.
