Match 23: PES vs LAH



Match no. 23 of the Pakistan T20 League will be played between PES and LAH on Tuesday, 7th March 2023, at 02:30 PM IST in Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi. 

The PES squad is in a solid position to provide the competition's leaders with a serious challenge. They have played twice at this location. However, the management will be concerned about the PES top order. Babar Azam and Mohammad Haris, their constants in the contest, need to be regularly scoring runs.

PES has benefited from the lower middle order on several occasions. In the previous game, Rovman Powell and Haseebullah Khan, who bat in PES's middle and lower middle orders, assisted Kohler-Cadmore during his half-century performance. Peshawar scored 197 runs losing five wickets partly because of the efforts of these three batsmen. Another factor to remember is that the PES hitters' confidence would have increased due to this effort. PES also enters this game with a victory, despite playing against a team currently on a winning streak. The PES bowling attack will cause their captain the most trouble. In their last match, the bowlers were responsible for allowing the LAH hitters to start with a big score.

PES Skipper Babar Azam would be looking for Arshad Iqbal and Wahab Riaz to bowl considerably better in the opening ball. The team's senior player, Wahab Riaz, is the most experienced. However, he could have been in better shape in the competition. On the other hand, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Azmatullah Omarzai seemed to be in excellent condition during the most recent game versus Karachi. Aamer Jamal also took three wickets in the match, although he cost his team 43 runs. Hence, if PES's batting performs as expected and the bowlers remain focused on their mission, PES should pull off an upset in this match.

The LAH will be fine with PES's resurgence in batting form later. While their team management will closely monitor their best players, they won't need to worry too much about playing PES in this match. Shaheen Afridi is leading LAH's world-class bowling assault. Rashid Khan, one of the best spinners in the world, is in charge of the middle overs and is in terrific form. The bowling assault of Lahore greatly benefited from this.

David Weise and Haris Rauf are also in the LAH speed bowling lineup. Sikandar Raza, a valuable all-around player who plays for them, may help them make strides even at crucial game moments. But, there are several issues that LAH should be aware of. Although they are now on a dream run, some questions have been raised over their hitting lineup. In their most recent games, their top order fell apart. Fakhar Zaman, in particular, could overcome his team's batting difficulties and resume scoring significant runs.

However, LAH has several match-winners within their ranks, another element working in their favor. One such player is Sikandar Raza, who can use both the bat and the ball—or possibly both—to help his team win a game. This Zimbabwean all-rounder batted at number 7 in one of the previous games and smashed an incredible 71 off 34 balls to lead his side to a decent total of 148 runs against QUE. Other vital players for Lahore are finisher Hussain Talat, Sam Billings, and Shafique.

Match Prediction

In terms of their present bat issues, both teams are relatively comparable. After their middle order revived their innings in the last game and helped them to a winning score, PES will be optimistic. Even on a field conducive to batting, LAH' superior bowling arsenal might make it difficult for PES to chase a score. LAH has an advantage in this match, and we will start them as favorites. We anticipate LAH to triumph!
