Boost Defenders Preview & Form
Still hunting for their first ever Shpageeza crown, Boost Defenders will be unhappy with both their batting and bowling in their last match, and must improve for the coming matches if they are to make such a bid. It’s always a big blow to your confidence when a team outclasses you to such an extent, and that’s another thing that will need repairing. With only two of their batsmen crossing the 30 mark, and the only person with a strike rate of over 130 making a mere 12 runs, the batting leaves much to be desired. On the other end, they were only able to take one solitary wicket from 15 years of bowling, during which they conceded 134. Hopefully for Boost, they will be able to shake it off as a one-off accident, and come right back into the tournament.
Speen Ghar Tigers Preview & Form
After a sizable victory against Kabul, Speen Ghar Tigers must have fancied their chances against Mis Ainak Knights, who had lost to the same. Their expectations, however, were thrashed all over the park along with their bowlers, with the Knights racking up a massive 22 courtesy of 3 half centuries. Only Abdullah Adil could show anything of a reasonable bowling performance, with all the others going for 9.5 runs or more per over. It didn’t take long for their chase to fall apart either, with the first three wickets falling for single digits. With Karim Sadiq having the highest score with 33, it wasn’t long before their chase - and inning - was over. Like the Defenders, they will have plenty to rectify if they are serious about earning a third Shpageeza.
Boost Defenders vs Speen Ghar Tigers Predictions
With so much on the line, it’s time for Boost Defenders’ in-form players to keep performing, and out-of-form players to step up their game. Expect Imran Janat and Munir Ahmad to score big runs, while Gulbadin Naib and Karim Janat take some enemy scalps.
Speen Ghar Tigers are no strangers to pressure - albeit somewhat out of touch. Nevertheless, this is the time to use all that experience. Expect Zubaid Akbari to get back to form along with his captain Karim Sadiq, while Qais Ahmed and Abdullah Adil find success with the ball.
