Pakistan Super League: A Brief Overview

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is Pakistan’s domestic Twenty20 (T20) cricket league, founded in 2015 and modeled after major domestic tournaments such as the Indian Premier League and Big Bash League.

The league is governed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and its six teams represent different towns in Pakistan. The competition aims to provide a platform for aspiring cricketers to demonstrate their abilities and attract players from other nations.

Pakistan Super League Wagering Tips and Forecasts

To place value bets with a greater chance of winning, staying current with the newest betting tips and match prediction information is essential.

As is typical of T20 events, PSL matches are loaded with thrilling turns that provide many betting chances for bettors. While we have mentioned the likely champions for this season in the section below, here are some valuable ideas to help you wager wisely:

  • Analyze the head-to-head records of the teams beforehand. Focus on the top scores, the number of wickets taken, and the winning margin. This information will enhance your cricket expertise and assist you in making swift wagering selections on live betting markets.
  • Read evaluations and do a SWOT analysis of the teams. Prepare a list of the players you intend to wager in advance.
  • Examine the Pakistani pitch reports and assess their appropriateness for bowlers and batters.
  • If you intend to wager throughout the season, you should keep a modest betting journal and match notes outlining which parts of your analysis were correct and which were incorrect. This will provide additional information and assist you in putting more informed wagers on future matches.
  • Most bookmakers publish match odds well in advance of the game’s start. This allows you to analyze changes across several betting sites and place wagers on the one with the greatest odds. A few additional minutes of effort might quadruple one’s winnings when placing significant wagers.

Who Will Be the Pakistan Super League Champion?

The Pakistan Super League is anticipated to produce, as usual, a rollercoaster season with fierce rivalry among the clubs for the top place.

Leading bookmakers have already revealed the outright odds for the seventh season of the Pakistan Super League (mentioned above), and the odds show that Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars are in a neck-and-neck race.

Each squad has a formidable bowling roster. Both Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim have consistently performed well for the Karachi Kings every season. Shaheen Afridi and Rashid Khan, respectively, provide the Qalandars with fast bowling and leg-spin.

However, their superior batting firepower tips the scales in favor of the Karachi Kings. The Karachi Kings have a clear road to win if Babar Azam is joined by excellent performances from Danish Aziz and Mohammad Nabi and Babar Azam’s ability to destroy the opposition’s bowling attack.

After everything is said and done, T20s are high-octane events where the outcome may change in minutes. Nevertheless, based on historical patterns and statistics, we predict that the Karachi Kings will win the PSL 2022.

Pakistan Super League Betting – Structure of the Tournament

Although the Pakistan Super League is a relatively new concept, it has already attracted a great deal of attention from cricket fans worldwide. As previously stated, this is the eighth year that the tournament has been held.

Six teams are competing in the contest. The first phase of the competition consists of a group stage, with the top four teams advancing to the knockout rounds.

In qualifier one, the first- and second-placed teams will compete for a position in the final, while the third- and fourth-placed teams will face off in an elimination match, with the loser being eliminated.

In qualifier two, both the losing team from qualifier one and the victor of the elimination match have a chance to advance to the championship game.

Here are the six teams that competed in the Pakistan Super League this season:

1. Karachi Kings 

  • Babar Azam, 
  • Imad Wasim,
  •  Joe Clarke, 
  • Sharjeel Khan, 
  • Aamer Yamin, 
  • Mohammad Nabi, 
  • Mohammad Amir, 
  • Mohammad Ilyas, 
  • Lewis Gregory, 
  • Umaid Asif, 
  • Chris Jordan, 
  • Ian Cockbain, 
  • Rohail Nazir, 
  • Faisal Akram, 
  • Qasim Akram, 
  • Talha Ahsan, 
  • Muhammad Imran, 
  • Tom Lammonby

The Karachi Kings’ key player, Babar Azam, is unquestionably the most popular. He is placed second in the ICC T20I Batting rankings as he continues to improve his performance.

Azam is perhaps one of the most lethal front-foot attackers in T20 cricket, and he possesses an arsenal of strokes that can steal games from other sides.

The significance of Azam to the cause cannot be overstated, and he must continue to score runs if the Karachi Kings are to recapture the Pakistan Super League crown.

2. Peshawar Zalmi 

  • Wahab Riaz, 
  • Shoaib Malik, 
  • Liam Livingstone, 
  • Saqib Mahmood, 
  • Hussain Talat, 
  • Hussain Talat,
  • Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 
  • Haider Ali, 
  • Hazratullah Zazai, 
  • Usman Qadir, 
  • Salman Irshad, 
  • Kamran Akmal, 
  • Sirajuddin, 
  • Mohammad Amir Khan, 
  • Sherfane Rutherford, 
  • Arshad Iqbal, Sameen

Like the Indian Premier League, the Pakistan Super League is filled with powerful hitters who can turn on in seconds. Shoaib Malik is among these athletes.

Over the previous two PSL seasons, the Pakistani batting king has amassed over 632 runs with a strike rate of 143.96.

Although he has not been particularly productive with the bat in PSL 6, he is still a tremendous asset to the team, and if he gets going, he will be difficult to stop. Malik is 39 years old, but he still has much to offer, as other teams have previously recognized.

Islamabad United.

  • Shadab Khan, 
  • Asif Ali, 
  • Alex Hales, 
  • Hasan Ali, 
  • Danish Aziz, 
  • Faheem Ashraf, 
  • Mohammad Wasim Jr, 
  • Azam Khan, 
  • Colin Munro,
  • Marchant de Lange, 
  • Paul Stirling, 
  • Muhammad Akhlaq, 
  • Reece Topley, 
  • Zafar Gohar, 
  • Mubasir Khan, 
  • M. Zeeshan, 
  • Rahmanullah Gurraaz, 
  • and Ather Mehsud.

Mohammad Wasim is the type of player that excites the fans, while Usman Khawaja stands out for his exploits with the bat at the Test level for Australia.

The 19-year-old has demonstrated proficiency in all three formats of cricket, and he can also hit the ball out of the park with both the bat and the ball. A 20-ball 55 for the Pakistan Under-19s showed that he is willing to play his strokes and would not wait around.

Wasim has taken four wickets in four innings while maintaining an economy rate of 8.40. He has also gotten acclaim, so it is only a matter of keeping an eye on Wasim.

4. Lahore Qalandars 

  • Shaheen Afridi, 
  • Rashid Khan, 
  • Haris Rauf, 
  • Mohammad Hafeez, 
  • David Wiese, 
  • Sohail Akhtar, 
  • Zeeshan Ashraf, 
  • Fakhar Zaman, 
  • Phil Salt, 
  • Ahmed Daniyal, 
  • Harry Brook, 
  • Abdullah Shafique, 
  • Kamran Ghulam,
  • Zaman Khan, 
  • Maaz Khan, 
  • Samit Patel, 
  • Syed Faisal, 
  • Dean Foxcroft.

Spinners play a crucial part in Twenty20 matches, which is true for the Pakistan Super League. In addition, the Lahore Qalandars owe Rashid Khan gratitude for rescuing them from a couple of awkward circumstances.

Khan has placed his County contract with Sussex on hold to participate in the PSL. Lahore’s gain is Sussex’s loss, as he will continue to confuse batters with his variations.

Khan, who has played for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, is well recognizable to IPL fans, and he can always be counted upon to take a critical wicket.

5. Multan Sultans 

  • Mohammad Rizwan, 
  • Sohaib Maqsood, 
  • Imran Tahir, 
  • Rilee Rossouw, 
  • Shan Masood, 
  • Khushdil Shah, 
  • Tim David, 
  • Odean Smith, 
  • Shahnawaz Dhani, 
  • Rumman Raees, 
  • Asif Afridi, 
  • Anwar Ali, 
  • Imran Khan Sr., 
  • Abbas Afridi, 
  • Rovman Powell, 
  • Amir Azmat, 
  • Ihsanullah, 
  • and Blessing M

Captain Rizwan, who is ranked third in the ICC T20I batting rankings, joined the Sultans in Season 6 and guided the side to its maiden PSL title in its very first season. He has previously played for the Qalandars and the Kings, exhibiting flawless performance.

He bats well in the top and middle order, having scored 500 runs for the Sultans, and his highest score without being out is 82 runs. He has a strike rate of 127.87 and is noted for hitting boundaries effortlessly, having smashed 56 fours and 10 sixes in the previous season alone.

6. Quetta Gladiators 

  • Sarfaraz Ahmed, 
  • James Vince,
  • Iftikhar Ahmed, 
  • Mohammad Nawaz, 
  • Shahid Afridi, 
  • Mohammad Hasnain, 
  • Naseem Shah,
  • Jason Roy, 
  • James Faulkner, 
  • Umar Akmal, 
  • Sohail Tanvir, 
  • Ben Duckett, 
  • Khurram Shehzad, 
  • Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, 
  • Muhammad Ashar Qureshi, 
  • Noor Ahmad, Ahsan Ali, 
  • and Luke Wood.

While veteran Faf du Plessis is one of the team’s headline players, Mohammad Hasnain is one of the team’s brightest stars on the opposite end of the spectrum.

He has taken 36 wickets and has a bowling economy of 8.2 after bursting onto the PSL scene in Season 4 (2019).

Hasnain will need to continue producing if his team is to advance in the competition, given that Quetta Gladiators have pursued the trophy for the previous two seasons.

Which is better, PSL or IPL?

In T20 franchise-based cricket, the PSL boasts the best fielding statistics when compared to the IPL, which is the standard. The catch conversion percentage in PSL is 82 percent, much higher than IPL cricket's 81 percent. This disproves the notion that the fielding in the IPL is superior.
