Queeta vs Islamabad

Finally the wait for PSL 2016 is over. Today, 4th February is the day when at 9 pm PST the first bowl will be delivered. The first match will be played between Queeta the Mighty Gladiators against the Federal Islamabad United. Both team will like to get a winning start and boost their confidence. Both Queeta and Islamabad have great and young exciting players in their squads.

Talking about Queeta Gladiators first, the weakest team on the page but it may surprise all of us like the inaugural IPL where the weakest team took the title. Queeta Gladiators is led by experienced Pakistan Wicket Keeper Batsman Sarfraz Ahmad. His skills will be tested here as he has led Pakistan A, Pakistan U-19 team previously. He is also vice captain of Pakistan ODI team. So his experience will be very valuable.


Queeta will be highly reliable on one of the best player in World Cricket. The player who recently had a very successful BBL (Big Bash League) but unluckily ended in losing cause. Yes Sir, you guessed it right Queeta’s diamond player Kevin Pieterson. KP will bring alot of experience under his belt for the Queeta Gladiators. He on the day can win the match for his team with his bashing batting.


Along with basher KP there will be experienced Luke Wright who also represents England and is highly experienced T20 player.  Along with these experienced players there are good players like Muhammad Nabi, Elton Chigumbura, Ahmad Shahzad, Anwar Ali, Bilal Asif and Asad Shafiq. The youngster like Bimillah Khan, Muhammad Nawaz, Saad Nasim, Rameez Raja will learn alot from their senior players.


In Bowling department Queeta have the most experienced bowler in T20 that is  Umar Gul. He will be lethal in depth bowling with his pin point yorkers. Along with him there is Aizaz Cheema, Zulfiqar Babr and other allrounders which will help their captain quite variety. Their bowling is not their strength but they may give every team a scare.


Coming to Islamabad Uniteds they are led by the most experienced captain in Pakistan Cricket. Misbah ul Haq will be leading the Islamabad Uniteds (if he is fully fit). His experience will be the most influencing factor for his team. His overall record of T20 is prolific also playing in different leagues of the World.


Islamabad has got alot of variety and their squad is very powerful. In Batting line up they have the calm captain Misbah ul Haq along with him they have the experienced Brad Haddin (the former Australian Wicket Keeper Batsman), Sam Billings, Sherjeel Khan, Shane Watson (The diamond player), and Pakistani rising talent Babar Azam. They have an exciting batting line up which on the day can boost team total to 200+ easily.


Islamabad also have the best all rounder in their team that is Andre Russell. He also had a very successful BBL recently. They also got the pace attack which includes Muhammad Irfan, Muhammad Sami, Rumman Raees, and offcourse Andre Russel himself. In spin department Islamabad have the best spinners which T20 cricket have ever seen, Saeed Ajmal and Samuel Badree. Ajmal will have the chance to revamp hi career from PSL.


Along with experience Islamabad have promising youngsters like Babar Azam, Amad Butt, Hussain Talat, Umar Amin, Kamran Ghulam, Umar Siddiq and Ruman Raees who will be getting precious experience playing with and against quality players.


Lets hope for the best Cricket today. So what will be the Playing X1 for today. Well let’s predict.


Queeta X1 will like to get off the winning start and they will expect from their diamond player to play a key part in that. Also their mentor Sir Viv Richard never liked losing so they will be pumped up to deliver their best.


Queeta XI: 1.Ahmed Shehzad, 2.Luke Wright, 3.Kevin Pieterson, 4.Bilal Asif/Asad Shafiq, 5.Saad Nasim, 6.Sarfraz Ahmad(wk/C), 7.Elton Chigumbura/Muhammad Nabi, 8.Anwar Ali, 9.Aizaz Cheema, 10.Umar Gul 11. Zulfiqar Babar.


Islamabad has alot of variety in their squad and they can opt for variety as well as power hitters. Lets predict what they will go


Islamabad X1: 1.Sharjeel Khan, 2. Shane Watson, 3. Babar Azam 4. Misbah ul Haq (C) 5. Sam Billing (wk) 6. Andre Russell, 7.Umar Amin/Kamran Ghulam, 8. Muhammad Sami/Rumaan Raees, 9. Samuel Badree, 10. Saeed Ajmal 11. Muhammad Irfan


These are the predict teams. PSL is for the emerging talent and we will like to see the youngsters instead of the same old faces. So that’s why we will prefer youngster Kamran Ghulam and Rumaan Raees.
