This season, among bowlers to bowl in a minimum of 5 overs, Ali Khan (10.00) and Chris Jordan (13.00) have the best and joint third-est bowling average in the league.

 

Sohail Akhtar the anchorman.

Skipper Sohail Akhtar has taken up the responsibility to ensure he sees the innings through this season. He is the second-highest run-getter in the league this season 6 runs behind Kohler-Cadmore with 200 runs and is his team’s leading run-getter.

In the five innings batted, Akhtar has been dismissed just once, against the Maratha Arabians and has remained unbeaten in the other four innings

He lets the other batsman be explosive at one end while he holds the fort at the other. His strike rate apart from his innings against the Pune Devils (253.85) and the Deccan Gladiators (229.03) has been inferior to the other more attacking batsman at the other end.

Out of the six fifty+ stands for the Qalandars this season, he has been part of five of those partnerships:

There has been only one fifty-run stand for the first wicket but, when Akhtar walks in to bat, he ensures his side forms a partnership and puts runs on the board as is evident from the table.
