THE TEAM NEWS

ISLAMABAD UNITED

Coach: Dean Jones

Captain: Shadab Khan

  • Islamabad United’s campaign so far has been pretty inconsistent but they are coming off one of their better performances where they did well to restrict Karachi Kings to just 168/8 when 200 looked possible and then they chased that down thanks to Asif Ali’s stunning 70 from 38 balls.

  • The issues in their batting department remain however as the likes of Delport and Hussain Talat are both under pressure to improve following their recent failures and it may well be that Phil Salt moves up the order to partner Ronchi after his solid knock last time out.

  • Given how close the PSL ladder is, United will know that a victory here will go a long way to securing a play-off place and there may be opportunities for Mohammad Sami, Chadwick Walton and Wayne Parnell to come into the side here.

PESHAWAR ZALMI

Coach: Mohammad Akram

Captain: Darren Sammy

  • Peshawar Zalmi are arguably the form team in the competition right now having won four of their last five matches and they come off a stunning win over Multan Sultans where they chased down 172/5 with four balls to spare on Thursday.

  • That victory came thanks to excellent half centuries from Umar Amin and Kieron Pollard who looks to be finding some good form at the moment and that seven-wicket victory may tempt them to go unchanged for this match.

  • Tymal Mills and Lendl Simmons are in Dubai and available to play but their four overseas players from Thursday are all playing relatively well so they may have to sit on the sidelines and await their chance.

THE PREDICTION

There two are in the top two positions in the PSL ladder coming into this game and it would be a surprise if either of them did not manage to make the knockout phase. Both teams are coming off a win last time out and victory here will go a long way to sealing a top four spot. Islamabad have the advantage of having an extra day of rest and that could be decisive against Zalmi who have the edge in form, but may be a little fatigued here.
