Who Will Win Paktia Panthers vs Kabul Zwanan Match- Betting Tips
Are you excited about the Paktia Panthers vs Kabul Zwanan match? Here are the Paktia Panthers vs Kabul Zwanan betting tips. The Paktia Panthers and Kabul Zwanan will face each other in the second semi-final of the APL. This contest is going to be keenly fought because both these teams are pretty evenly matched. They also played a match against each other which the Paktia Panthers won.
The pressure of playing in a knockout is completely different from previous matches. Both the teams have some explosive batsmen that can light up a contest and will be hoping that they bring their best.
Mohammad Shahzad seems to smash bowlers with complete freedom. Without the pressure of playing for his country weighing him down, he has now come into his own.
Mohammad Shahzad is the leading scorer of this tournament with 343 runs. He has been the mainstay of the Paktia Panthers batting unit and ensured they are in with a winning chance. Mohammad Shahzad smashed the Kabul bowlers for 62 runs in 37 balls in the last match. He is going to be the prize wicket for the Kabul bowlers in this semi-final.
Ihsan Ullah was injured in the last match and we are not sure whether he will play this match or not. Even if he does not play, the Paktia Panthers have some very good batsmen to call upon. Callum MacLeod has started inching towards the top of the order, a position where he is much more adept and useful, while Samiullah Shenwari is finding some run-scoring form too.
Cameron Delport and Sikandar Raza were rested for the last game but they should definitely be back. Delport has scored 154 runs in the tournament with a best 70 not out while Raza has scored 140 with a best of 78 not out. Raza also contributes with the ball and is brilliant in the field.
Shahid Afridi and Isuru Udana are also near certain starters in the playing eleven which means that MacLeod may be missing out. The Paktia Panthers needs its two overseas players otherwise they may be targeted by the Kabul batsmen. Ziaur Rahman, Sharafuddin Ashraf, and Ahmadzai seem likely be a part of the bowling unit.
The Paktia Panthers have been the second best side on display with their 5 out of 8 wins. They can suffer some collapses, making them a bit unpredictable.
If the Paktia Panthers have Mohammad Shahzad then Kabul Zwanan has Hazratullah Zazai. Zazai has had a very productive tournament as well by recording six sixes on one over. He has scored 288 runs in the tournament and will be one of the most dangerous batsmen in a strong Kabul Zwanan batting lineup.
Luke Ronchi and Laurie Evans also scored more than 200 runs in the previous match. Both these players are going to play a vital role in Kabul’s success in the semi-final. We are backing Ronchi to play one of his trademark fliers in this game.
There were many occasions where the Kabul Zwanana team was in trouble only for Laurie Evans to bail them out. He is able to play the big shots with a degree of consistency that is quite rare. If Colin Ingram, Wayne Parnell, and someone like Shahidullah can also come to the party then Kabul’s batting is going to be very hard to stop.
On the bowling front, Kabul has a bit of a disadvantage over the Paktia Panthers. Kabul is led by Rashid Khan, the best T20 bowler in the world, but the other players have somewhat underperformed.
Wayne Parnell continues to have a reputation for a good T20 bowler even though he continues to be smashed in the tournament around the world. If Rashid Khan goes for runs then stopping the flow of runs from the other end is going to be extremely difficult.
The team winning the toss will bat first
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Sharjah has been able to provide a wicket that has not completely died after so many matches on it. We are sure that another flat surface with low bounce and some amount of spin on it will be on offer.
This is a contest between two high scoring teams and we think that a score of 180 should be seen as par.
We think that the Paktia Panthers are a better side than Kabul Zwanan. The number of explosive batsmen is almost the same on both sides but the bowling unit of the Paktia Panthers is better.
Back the Kabul Zwanan to win
