We would analyze whether Peshawar Zalmi could keep the momentum and pull off their seventh victory in the tournament or whether Karachi Kings could reduce the gap in the points table with an upset win.

 

Peshawar Zalmi – key players

The team will be determined to give off their best in this final league match of the tournament and come out victorious ahead of the more important playoff fixtures. Even though they have already booked their place in the playoffs the players will need to really focus on the game as defeat would certainly demoralize the entire squad. But more importantly, they would look at the possibility of improving the net run-rate as well which would help them to claim the number one position in the final points table.

Peshawar Zalmi’s batting has been pretty consistent throughout the tournament and they have always put up some big scores on the board. In fact, they have as many as five batsmen in the side who have amassed over 150 runs this season with Imam-ul-Haq in front with an aggregate of 198 runs from eight matches. The 23-year-old stylish left-hander, playing in his maiden PSL season has already made a lasting impression with some match-winning contributions for his team. Meanwhile, West Indies’ all-rounder Keiron Pollard has accumulated a total of 184 runs from his nine matches at an average of 30.66 and a splendid strike-rate of 173.58.

England international Liam Dawson (155 runs), Umar Amin (151 runs) and Kamran Akmal (154 runs) are the other top run-getters for Peshawar Zalmi. In the bowling department, the cynosure of all eyes will be on the right-arm paceman Hasan Ali who has emerged as one of the leading wicket-takers with 18 wickets to his credit from nine outings. Our cricket win tips expect Hasan Ali to hold the key in the bowling front for Peshawar Zalmi yet again.

Karachi Kings – key players

Karachi Kings have a great chance to finish second in the final points table if they could register a big victory and also improve on their net run-rate. No doubt they will take the field with a great amount of confidence after having edged-out the table leaders Quetta Gladiators by a solitary run in their previous game played on Sunday (10) at the same venue. They will look for a repeat performance from their players as they will be determined to maintain the same form before going into the vital playoff stage of the competition.

All their batters are in good form with dashing opener Babar Azam looking for another top innings after his heroics in the match against Quetta Gladiators. The 24-year-old right-hander hit a top score of 56 from 46 balls inclusive of one six and half a dozen of boundaries which lifted his team to a commanding 190 for five in their 20 overs.

Karachi Kings’ bowling has looked even more impressive with 19-year-old uncapped left-arm seamer Umer Khan and another left-arm paceman Usman Shinwari causing most of the damage. In fact, both played a major role in their previous
success against Quetta Gladiators while claiming three wickets each. Khan has a total of 13 wickets from nine matches at an average of 13.92 while Shinwari has captured a total of 11 wickets from seven matches at an average of 19.81.
