Pakistan Super League Betting Predictions, Tips and Strategies

Pakistan Super League Predictions

League toppers Multan Sultans are favourite to win the PSL 2020. If Multan Sultans fail to win against Karachi Kings in the Qualifier, they can still progress to the Final via the Eliminator 2.

Multan Sultans‘ squad boasts of outstanding players in Shan Masood, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Irfan, James Vince, Junaid Khan, Moeen Ali, Ravi Bopara, Sohail Tanvir, Khushdil Shah, Asad Shafiq and Imran Tahir.

Karachi Kings have had an excellent 2020 PSL and have a good chance of winning the tournament. Babar Azam has been in superb form and is the leading run-scorer of the tournament at the moment.

Players like Azam, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, Alex Hales, Cameron Delport and Michell McClenaghan must perform at their absolute best: it is safe to say that Karachi Kings have the strongest squad in the PSL 2020.

If you want to place a Player of the Match bet, look no further than Babar Azam, Chris Lynn, Ben Dunk, Sohail Tanvir, Imran Tahir and Shaheen Afridi. Batsman Matches is an interesting betting market. Two batsmen will be paired against each other and you must predict which of the two batsmen will score more runs in a match in question. 

Babar Azam, Chris Lynn and Ben Dunk are safe choices for this betting market. You should place a Most Match Sixes bet on Lahore Qalandars. You should place a Player to Score Most Sixes bet on Chris Lynn and Ben Dunk.

Betting markets like Highest Opening Partnership, Runs at Fall of 1st Wicket, Team to Make Highest 1st 6 Overs Score and Most Run Outs are unpredictable and you should avoid punting on these markets.

Pakistan Super League – Players to Look Out For

Here are 5 players who could impress in the 2020 PSL:

Babar Azam

Pakistan’s ODI and T20I captain, Babar Azam is a flamboyant batsman with all the shots in the book. Azam is one of the best batsmen in world cricket and a vital member of Karachi Kings’ squad. He is the leading run-scorer of the 2020 PSL at the time of writing, with 345 runs. Azam must lead from the front in the playoffs stage and help his team past Multan Sultans in the Qualifier. If Karachi Kings fail to win against Multan Sultans, they still have another crack at reaching the Final.

Chris Lynn

Chris Lynn is an audacious batsman who can clear the boundary ropes with ease. He is an excellent fielder as well and is Lahore Qalandars’ most important batsman. Lynn is the second highest run-scorer of the PSL at the moment, with 284 runs. Lahore Qalandars will meet Peshawar Zalmi in the Eliminator 1 and Lynn must put on a show if Lahore Qalandars are to progress in the tournament.

Ben Dunk

Ben Dunk is as important to Lahore Qalandars’ success as is Chris Lynn. Dunk has hit the most sixes in the PSL 2020 at the time of writing (23) and is the third highest run-scorer, with 266 runs. A solid middle-order batsman, Dunk must exhibit his raw six-hitting prowess in the playoffs stage of the PSL 2020. 

Shaheen Afridi

Shaheen Afridi is on his way to becoming one of the best fast bowlers in world cricket. At just 20 years of age, Afridi has already taken almost 100 international wickets. Afridi is as important to Lahore Qalandars as are Chris Lynn and Ben Dunk. He is the second highest wicket-taker in the 2020 PSL at the time of writing, with 13 wickets. Shaheen Afridi must bowl at his absolute best if Lahore Qalandars are to harbour any hopes of winning the league.

Khushdil Shah

Khushdil Shah is a player to look out for in the future. While Shah has not set the PSL 2020 alight, he has impressed. Shah scored a mesmerizing 70 off just 29 balls against Lahore Qalandars. With 175 runs in the PSL 2020 and a wicket to show for, Shah could play a big role in Multan Sultans’ title charge.

 

History of the Pakistan Super League

The Pakistan Super League was founded by the PCB on the 9th of September, 2015. 5 teams competed in the first two editions of the PSL. A 6th team, Multan Sultans, was introduced in the 2018 PSL. From the 2021 PSL onwards, the PSL will have an exclusive window in the ICC Future Tours Programme.

The prize pool for the PSL is $1 million. The winner will receive a cheque of $500,000, while the runner-up will receive a cheque of $200,000. Islamabad United is the most successful team in PSL history with 2 title wins. Peshawar Zalmi is the most consistent team in PSL history with 3 final appearances and a league-high 31 wins.
