PSL 2021: QG vs LQ – Match 23 – Dream 11 Team, Predictions & Tips

This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 23 of the PSL 2021 between Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalandars which is scheduled to take place on the 15th of June 2021.

The first of the doubleheaders on Tuesday will see bottom-placed and injury-hit Quetta Gladiators led by Sarfaraz Ahmed taking on the Lahore Qalandars. They have won 2 on the bounce in this leg of the PSL and will look to make a hat-trick to retain their top position. While Quetta has won just 1 of their 7 games, Lahore just lost 1 out of the 6 they played.

Expectedly, Lahore Qalandars trounced the hapless Quetta by 9 wickets in the Karachi-leg of games back in February.

Match Details

VenueSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Pitch and Weather– The first doubleheader game on Thursday saw scores of over 160 being scored by both teams. And this match should also see a similar pattern with respect to scores. The temperature is expected to be in the mid-30s and will be uncomfortable for the players.

Date and time: June 15, 2021, 5 PM Local, 6 PM PKT, 6.30 PM IST

The Probable Playing XIs

Quetta Gladiators have been hard-hit injuries to 2 of their main overseas stars Andre Russell and Faf Du Plessis. Both of them were concussed during the team’s last 2 games and likely to sit out of this game.

Lahore Qalandars are likely to stick with the same side that they will play against the Islamabad United.

Quetta Gladiators– Usman Khan, Saim Ayub, Jake Weatherhead, Azam Khan, Cameron Delport, Sarfaraz Ahmed(C & Wk ), Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Hasnain, Zahid Mahmood, Khurram Shahzad, Zahir Khan

Lahore Qalandars– Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar(C), Ben Dunk, Mohammad Faizan, Mohammad Hafeez, Tim David, James Faulkner, Rashid Khan, Ahmed Daniyal, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

Match Prediction

Lahore Qalandars will be favorites going into the game after having won their last 2 games in this Abu Dhabi leg. Also, their opponents Quetta not only lost their last 2 but also may be without their star players Faf Du Plessis and Andre Russell. So we can expect to see Lahore continue its winning run.

Fantasy Tips

Batsman– Openers from both sides Fakhar Zaman and Usman Khan can be batsmen selected in the Fantasy for this match. Along with them, the in-form Tim David of Lahore can be the 3rd batsman on the team.

All-rounders – The experienced Mohammad Hafeez hasn’t had the best of PSL 2021 leg 2 as yet but we can expect him to come good. Mohammad Nawaz can be picked as he has been one of the consistent performers in this league. James Faulkner has been the best performer of this PSL Abu Dhabi leg. All these 3 can be part of your fantasy team.

Wicket-Keeper-Ben Dunk and Azam Khan can be selected as the keepers of the team. While Dunk has been amongst runs for Lahore, Azam Khan is rated highly in this format.

Bowlers– Young pacers from both sides Mohammad Hasnain and Shaheen Afridi can be picked, despite not being at their best. Rashid Khan is a certainty in any fantasy team nowadays.

Captaincy choices

Team for fantasy:  Fakhar Zaman, Usman Khan, Ben Dunk, Azam Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, James Faulkner, Tim David, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi.

Captain: Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan has already delivered 2 man of the match performances in Lahore’s last 2 games and he has the capability to repeat the same again.

Vice-Captain– James Faulkner

Like Rashid, James Faulkner is a genuine match-winner on his day and a proven performer. So he can be the Vice-Captain of the side.
