SCL Match 11: Boost Defenders vs Mis Ainak Knights T20 Prediction and Preview

Kabul International Cricket Stadium
The situation of the table has turned Boost Defenders versus Mis Ainak Knights into one of the most important matches at this year’s Shpageeza. On one side, we have a team desperate to prove itself trying to enter the playoff slots, while on the other side it’s the defending champions attempting to lead the league. Both have a slew of good players at their disposal, and both played their last matches against Speen Ghar Tigers with very different results. If the Defenders lose, their chances of entering the playoffs go from decent to very slim. If the Knights fall apart, they might end up in the eliminator slots. Before the match gets under way, let’s peek at what the teams are looking like. 

Boost Defenders Preview & Form

The Defenders may have lost two matches and may be up against the very formidable defending champions, but their last match will be against the weakest team in the league. Even with that buffer, though, the result of this match might decide their fate. Their run rate isn’t bad, but a big defeat here could see them slip below another team with the same number of points. In their last match, they mounted an excellent chase before failing to get 6 off the last 2 deliveries. That must have affected team morale even a little, and another loss could cause it to crumble entirely. 


Mis Ainak Knights Preview & Form

Seeing how well Mis Ainak did against Speen Ghar, it’s hard to imagine that it’s the same team that lost to Kabul. Nevertheless, they will be coming into this match not only on a high, but with the knowledge that Boost Defenders just lost to the same team they absolutely destroyed. Mis Ainak Knights have a few players in excellent form. Three half centuries in a single T20 inning is a rare sight, and if their top order keeps firing like this, they will definitely stand a solid chance to retain their title. On the other hand, their bowling also had shining beacons, with Abdullah Mazari picking up 4 for 26 off his allotted overs, and Shapoor Zadran taking 3 from just 2.3 overs. 


Predictions

If they are to win this match, Boost Defenders must try to stem the flow of runs off of the MAK batsmen. Expect Sayed Shirzad and Gulbadin Naib to do so, while Munir Ahmad and Karim Janat score important runs.


The Knights look hungry and dangerous, and they will no doubt test the Defenders to their limits. Expect Mohammad Shahzad and Hashmatullah Shahidi to continue their superb batting, while Noor Ahmad and Shapoor Zadran do the damage bowling-wise.
