Match 12: PES vs ISL



The 12th Match of the Pakistan T20 League will be played between PES and ISL on Thursday, 23rd February 2023, at 07:30 PM IST in National Stadium, Karachi. PES is second on the points table, having four points with two wins in three matches. PES won their last game against QUE by four wickets. However, PES could not get a good start in this match as they found themselves at 67/4 in 8 overs. PES has a deep batting line-up, with Powell, Neesham, and Shanaka at the 5th, 6th, and 7th positions, respectively.

After four wickets down, they still managed to pull the game for them as Neesham made the highest and quick 37 runs to clinch it. PES's bowling department will majorly depend on Wahab Riaz, who’ll get the support of Arshad Iqbal and Jimmy Neesham. Right-arm Leg-Break bowler Usman Qadir will be the player to watch out for. The history of pacers on this ground is not very good. However, the big hitters, including Tom Kohler-Cadmore in the middle, can go all guns blazing.

On the other hand, ISL can make turn things in their favor on this ground. PES won't be an easy opponent, but they also have an exceptional squad this season. In the last game, ISL failed to par the target of 191 against MUL. ISL got all-out on just 138 runs; R. Van Der Dussen was the top scorer from ISL, making 49 of 32 balls. ISL has a robust middle order, including Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, and Faheem Ashraf, at numbers 5, 6, and 7. 

Following at number 8, bowling all-rounder Tom Curran ensures that ISL stays in the game after losing several wickets. Yet in their last match, only Dussen and Munro appeared to get going, and after their loss, the rest of the roster huddled together.

This lineup has many strong hitters, including Paul Stirling at the top. However, this batting lineup's return to Karachi may be what it needs to regain its form.

The two most essential speed bowlers will be Rumman Raees and Mohammad Wasim Jr. This range offers various spin possibilities. In addition, Abrar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, and Faheem Ashraf can make significant strides.
