Pakistan T20 League 2023

Match 25: PES vs QUE

 

Preview

The 25th match of the Pakistan T20 League will occur between PES and QUE on Wednesday, 8th March 2023, at 07:30 PM IST in Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi.

With two straight 50s, Tom Kohler-Cadmore has lately shown to be PES's best hitter. He is among the top 10 scorers in this year’s edition of the league, with 216 runs overall. If Babar Azam (178) and the other batsman for the team can form a solid partnership, PES will improve in the rankings.

Mohammad Haris, who had a promising start to his batting career but lately faltered with two consecutive ducks, has to perform better.

As seen by some of the weakest bowling in the PAK T20 League, the squad depends heavily on the hitters to carry them through games. PES’s best bowlers are Jimmy Neesham (4 wickets and 9.23 ER) and Wahab Riaz (4 wickets and 9.43 ER), which isn't saying much considering how far down the list of top wicket-takers they are.

After joining the squad from the Bangladesh T20 League, Salman Irshad ought to aid out with the bowling.

With such poor performances, it's challenging to picture QUE ever having a chance to compete for the championship this season. However, Jason Roy, who often travels for England's national team, may boost the squad.

Apart from his 117 runs against the KAR, New Zealand's Martin Guptill (252 runs) has sometimes been the most steady batsman. Although Sarfaraz Ahmed and Iftikhar Ahmed are batting well, they need to catch up to other league-run producers and cannot contribute to victories.

The team's top bowlers, Mohammad Hasnain (8 wickets) and Mohammad Nawaz (9 wickets), have taken the most wickets but continue to give up too many runs and need to be more effective. Mohammad Hasnain's 3/13 performance is a rare flash of positivity, but it's not occurring too frequently.

Pitch and Weather Report 

The wicket's high-scoring potential has made defending difficult at this stadium. Second-inning bowling is rugged here. Anticipating that the toss winner will bowl first.

Batsmen love the fast outfield and level pitch. The surface turns for spinners, especially in the second innings, while fast bowlers do well when they can adjust line and length.

Matchday in Rawalpindi will be clear. A northeast breeze of 3 km/h would bring temperatures of 17–26°C. Hot, sticky weather and a level field can help hitters score more. The first-batting team must score above 180 runs if they want to win.
