PSL Eliminator 1 – Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

We are now in the business end of the Pakistan Super League, and facing off in the first eliminator match will be Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United. The Peshawar Zalmi have worked hard throughout the season and even had to dig deep and win their last game against the Lahore Qalandars, which went all the way to a super over. They finished the league stage at 3rd position with 12 points.

Islamabad United have lost three games on the trot and will enter this match-up, worried about form. They finished the league stage in fourth position and will have to really put in a performance in order to get any kind of result against a formidable Peshawar Zalmi side.

The match is scheduled to take place on the 24th of February, 2022 at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

PSL Eliminator 1 – Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United – Players to Watch

 

Shoaib Malik

 

The veteran cricketer has seen many a crunch games in his career and he knows exactly how to handle the pressure. He has also been in fine touch this season with 346 runs amassed from 10 games. He will be crucial for the Peshawar side and a safe pick for your fantasy lineup.

 

Salman Irshad

 

He has been absolutely in top form with the ball for the Peshawar Zalmi, and he has also been the most dependent bowler for them. He has picked up 12 wickets from 7 games and will have to be in good rhythm in order to help his team win the eliminator.

 

Hazratullah Zazai

 

He is a player who bats with flair and provides brisk opening stands for his team. He has scored 149 runs from 9 games so far, and we expect him to be a bit bolder in this eliminator as his team will need all the runs they can get.

 

Waqas Maqsood

 

A bowler who has been great for Islamabad United this season, Waqas will be heavily relied upon to scalp the main wickets of the Peshawar side, and if his current haul of 11 wickets from 6 games is anything to go by, we expect to see him putting a lot of pressure on the opposition.
