qs vs mas Match Prediction & Analysis

The Qalandars without any doubt have looked the best side so far in the tournament and they would be looking to continue with the same momentum as they go into the 16th game of the season against the Maratha Arabians. The Qalandars come into this game with a massive win against the Deccan Gladiators while the Arabians suffered yet another loss against the Bangla Tigers in their previous game. 

The Maratha Arabians haven’t looked in best of form since their win in the first game of the season. Their batting line-up has failed to live up to the expectations and this is causing a huge problem for the side. Given the kind of form we have seen so far from the Qalandars it would take a spirited effort from the Maratha Arabians to win this game. 

Teams Preview

Qalandars Preview

Three wins in three games and Sohail Akhtar would be extremely proud of the way his boys have played so far in the tournament. They have destroyed bowling attacks and come here with a 33 run win against the Deccan Gladiators. Akhtar would want his players to continue with the same momentum and strengthen their position on the points table. 

Batting looks very strong at the top with Tom Banton and Sharjeel Khan having scored runs in the three games. Sohail Akhtar too comes here after a match winning effort in the last game. With good hitters like Ben Dunk, Asif Ali and Shahid Afridi to follow they have all bases covered as far as their batting is concerned. 

Sultan Ahmed and Sohail Tanvir would be looking to grab early wickets and they have bowled tight spells with the new ball. Afridi has been at his miserly best and this would add to the side’s confidence. With Danyal Ahmed, Chris Jordan and Azmatullah Omarzai in the mix they have good variety in their bowling attack. 

Qalandars Predicted Playing XI:

Sohail Akhtar (c), Tom Banton, Sharjeel Khan, Asif Ali, Ben Dunk (wk), Shahid Afridi, Azmatullah Omarzai, Chris Jordan, Sohail Tanvir, Sultan Ahmed, Danyal Ahmed

Qalandars Actual Playing XI:

Chris Jordan, Danial Asif Ahmed, Sharjeel Khan, Sohail Akhtar, Sohail Tanvir, Sultan Ahmed, SMSK Afridi, Asif Ali, Tom Banton, Azmatullah Omarzai, Ben Dunk

Maratha Arabians Preview

After a good start to the season Mosaddek Hossain’s side seems to have lost its way. In yet another ordinary performance they went down against the Bangla Tigers by 6 wickets. Their batsmen have played poorly in the last two games and this is something they will have to fix as they go into this game against a very strong side. 

Mohammad Hafeez and Abdul Shakoor did set up a big stand in the last game but their scoring rate was low and this is something they would have to improve upon in this game. Ishant Malothra, Laurie Evans and Shoaib Malik bring in good hitting abilities to the table and they would be expected to do well in this game. 

Yamin Ahmadzai and Sompal Kami did well in the last game and they would need to bowl tight spells with the new ball considering the kind of strength the Qalandars have with the bat. Sohag Gazi, Muktar Ali and Hossain have been expensive in the last few games and a good show would be expected from them here. 

Maratha Arabians Predicted Playing XI:

Mosaddek Hossain (c), Abdul Shakoor (wk), Ishan Malhotra, Laurie Evans, Sohag Gazi, Muktar Ali, Javed Ahmadi, Yamin Ahmadzai, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sompal Kami

Maratha Arabians Actual Playing XI:

Abdul Shakoor, Mohammad Hafeez, Yamin Ahmadzai, Muktar Ali, Ishan Malhotra, Kevin Koththigoda, Laurie Evans, Shoaib Malik, Mosaddek Hossain, Sompal Kami, Javed Ahmadi

Weather Conditions

It will be a warm day at Abu Dhabi on February 02 with clear skies. The pitch has become better to bat on as the tournament has progressed and we assume this game to be a high scoring contest. The side that would bat first here would be targeting a score of 130 or more to defend it successfully. 

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi has a large outfield but it is also one of the quickest in the world where batsmen have enjoyed scoring runs in boundaries. The conditions here are tough for the fast bowlers but spinners have always enjoyed bowling on this surface as there is turn on offer for them. 

Toss: To Bowl

15 games have been so far played in the tournament and the side batting first has managed to win only three of them. The pitch is good for chasing big scores where the side has a target in mind. Given the results we have seen so far we expect the side winning the toss to have no hesitation in inviting the opposition to bat first. 

QS vs MAS Winning Prediction

Maratha Arabians would be under extreme pressure to win this one with two consecutive losses behind their back. They haven’t really done well with the bat in the last two games and shall look for a quick turnaround. As for the Qalandars they have done most things right in the tournament and have a batting line-up in good form. This would make them favorites in this game. 

Qalandars to win
