Amo Sharks Preview & Form
Although not looking as bad as some teams in the CPL looked this year, Amo Sharks are nevertheless winless and don’t look to be a danger to any team they play. Even if they win their two remaining matches, chances are their efforts will be only worth a pat on the back. In their last match, their bowlers were absolutely ripped apart by the Kabuli batsmen, while their batsmen failed to get much done - with the exception of Darwish Rasooli and Farhan Zakhil. If they have any plans left to somehow squeeze themselves into the playoffs, that plan will have to include some minor, and some major, miracles.
Mis Ainak Knights Preview & Form
As I write this, the Knights are probably still wondering how they managed to lose a game that was all but bagged in the 15th over of the second inning. In a spectacular example of why T20 cricket is so exciting, Boost Defenders came back in magnificent fashion to win a seemingly lost battle. Chasing 188, a target the Knights posted at the loss of only two wickets courtesy of Mohammad Shahzad’s 64 ball 106, the Defenders seemed hopeless at 112 for 6 after 14 overs, but captain fantastic Gulbadin Ahmed and his lower order teammate Tahir Khan had other plans, and smashed their way to hunt down the 77 required off exactly the remaining 36 deliveries. Now the Knights find themselves in a fix with a must-win match which, with some luck with other results, might still see them take one of the upper berths forward.
AMSKS vs MAK Prediction
The Sharks will rarely get a better chance to beat the Knights, as the latter is under tremendous pressure to defend their crown. Expect Darwish Rasooli to repeat his excellent batting alongside Farhan Zakhil, while Abdul Wasi and Yamin Ahmadzai excel at bowling.
With so much on the line, Mis Ainak Knights cannot leave anything to chance. Expect Mohammad Shahzad to go ballistic again in tandem with Ghamai Zadran, while Noor Ahmad and Shahidullah cause trouble for the Sharks with the ball.
