In Match 17 of the 2024 Pakistan Super League, Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi clash at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 2:30 PM local time. The Rawalpindi pitch offers a flat surface with decent pace and bounce, ideal for batsmen to score freely.

LQ vs PZ Prediction

In the ongoing tournament, Lahore Qalandars find themselves at the bottom of the table, having lost all six of their matches so far. Their latest defeat came at the hands of Multan Sultans, where they suffered a heavy loss by 60 runs. Confidence within the team is notably low, casting doubt on their ability to secure a win against Peshawar Zalmi in the upcoming match.

On the contrary, Peshawar Zalmi had a rocky start to the tournament but has since found their rhythm, gradually climbing up the leaderboard. However, despite recent victories against Multan Sultans, Lahore Qalandars, and Islamabad United, it’s worth noting that these wins were all hard-fought and narrowly secured.

  • Babar Azam’s recent unbeaten century cements his position as Peshawar Zalmi’s main run scorer against Lahore Qalandars.
  • Arif Yaqoon’s remarkable 5/27 in the last match suggests he could lead Peshawar Zalmi’s bowling attack in the forthcoming match.
  • With an outstanding batting average of 82.5 in the PSL, betting on Babar Azam to surpass 31.5 runs is a smart move.
