Pakistan Super League 9 Predictions to Win a Bet
Take a good look at these predictions, and then use them to place bets on the Pakistan Super League with your friends or on other best betting sites in Pakistan.
Mohammad Rizwan: Highest Runs in PSL 8
When it came to the PSL last year, Mohammad Rizwan was the leading scorer. In 12 innings, he allowed 550 runs on 55 hits and 142.85 pitches per inning. A hundred and four fifty-plus scores were in his total, including 110 not out against the Karachi Kings.
In the 2023 PSL, Rizwan hit 54 fours, which was second most in the competition, while he only hit 14 sixes. This shows that the calculated right-hander is playing a stroke that is low-risk but very effective.
The captain of the Multan Sultans is a strong contender to lead the PSL in run scoring this season and seems to respect his wicket more than the other openers in the game.
Abbas Afridi: Best Bowling in PSL 2023
Last year in the PSL, Afridi took the most wickets. In 11 innings, he managed to take 23 wickets. Taking two wickets or more every game for a long time in Twenty20 cricket is impressive.
Although he did not yet have any international caps, he made his Twenty20 International debut for Pakistan in mid-January 2024 and got five wickets in his opening two matches against New Zealand.
Joining Afridi on the field for the Multan Sultans are fellow English seamers David Willey, Reece Topley, and Chris Jordan. While the three Englishmen will be in charge of the Sultans’ foreign bowling resources, Afridi will be in charge of the local talent.
The right-arm seamer, who is 22 years old and in terrific health, is a strong contender to be named the tournament’s best bowler once again.
Imad Wasim: Best Alround Perforamnce in PSL 8
In the player of the tournament markets, all-rounders are frequently solid picks. If not both, then at least one of these things will work for them.
In 2019, all-rounder Shane Watson of the Quetta Gladiators and in 2016, all-rounder Ravi Bopara of the Karachi Kings demonstrated this while winning the PSL Player of the Tournament accolades, respectively.
After that, Imad Wasim of Islamabad United became one of the top all-rounders in the PSL for a number of seasons. With 404 runs in 10 innings last year, he was the fifth-highest scorer. He also claimed nine wickets at an average of 25.88.
Wasim left the Karachi Kings for Islamabad United after retiring from international cricket at the end of last year. He is still available to play for and coach for Islamabad United.
Multan Sultans Can Win PSL 9
When the PSL expanded from five to six teams in 2018, the Sultans became the newest member. Their initial two seasons ended in elimination from the group stage, but they have subsequently advanced to the playoffs four times in a row, winning the title once. The Sultans have finished in second place for the past two seasons, dating back to their 2021 championship run.
Compared to Lahore Qalandars, Multan Sultans has been more consistent in their final places, with one first-place and two second-place results in the last three seasons. Between the 2023 and 2024 PSL, the Sultans did a good job at retaining and recruiting players. This year, they should easily defeat the defending champs, Lahore.
Quetta Gladiators Might Finish Last As Usual
In Quetta’s first four seasons in the PSL, they made it to the playoffs once, finished in second place twice, and won the championship once. But they’ve been eliminated from the competition in the group stage for the past four years running. They were the worst of the six teams in the 2021 and 2023 point standings.
Akeal Hosein and Sherfane Rutherford, both from the West Indies, have been hired by Quetta as new head coach and bowling coach, respectively. Whatever the case may be, it will be quite difficult for a side with only 13 victories in their last 40 PSL matches to escape finishing last for the third year in a row.
