5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Hafeez, Chris Lynn, Shaheen Afridi, and Wahab Riaz.
PES vs LAH Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
Kamran Akmal (Price 9) and Tom Banton (Price 9) will the wicket-keepers of our team. Kamran is one of the most consistent players of the PSL and he is a player that can’t be dropped. Banton hasn’t been in his best of forms but he is an asset in T20s and should be under consideration.
PES vs LAH Dream11 Batsmen
The batting trio of Chris Lynn (Price 11), Fakhar Zaman (Price 9.5), and Sohail Akhtar (Price 8.5) will be our batters from the Qalandars. Lynn is T20 superstar and he can take the match away on his own, so he cannot be dropped from the tea am at all. Fakhar is getting starts in almost every game, but he is not converting them into big scores. The south-paw is a brilliant T20 player and will be a great asset if he can get going. Akhtar is also a decent middle-order batsman and can be a good pick.
Haider Ali (Price 8.5) will be the sole batter from the Peshawar side and will complete our line-up. Haider is a rookie batsman and a fantastic stroke player. He proved his quality in the last game.
[Liam Livingstone plays lower down the order and can be a consideration if Peshawar bats first]
PES vs LAH Dream11 All-Rounders
Mohammad Hafeez (Price 9) and David Wiese (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounders. Hafeez showed his quality in the last game with both bat and ball in the last game and he is one all-rounder who can not be dropped from the team. Weise is also a decent all-rounder and is picked by the majority of the people, so he will be a safe option in small-league teams.
PES vs LAH Dream11 Bowlers
Shaheen Afridi (Price 9) will be our bowler from the Lahore Qalandars. Afridi bowled one of the best spells of the PSL history in the last game and he would like to continue his top-notch form.
Wahab Riaz (Price 9) and Hasan Ali (Price 9.5) will be our quicks from the Peshawar side. Wahab has been an excellent wicket-taker for the franchise and would like to continue his form. Hasan Ali has also been a decent bowler for the Peshawar side.
[If Peshawar bats first, Rahat comes in for Hasan to adjust Livingstone in the side]
Match Prediction: Peshawar Zalmi will be the favourites to win this game.
