We would analyze whether Peshawar Zalmi could keep the momentum and cruise into the final or whether Quetta Gladiators could maintain their dominance with the third win over their rivals during the current season.

 

Peshawar Zalmi – key players

The last two games of the league phase have really turned in favor of the Peshawar Zalmi side who are brimming with a great amount of confidence ahead of this vital encounter. The manner in which they have completed their task is quite remarkable and on Monday (11) they had the satisfaction of running down their highest total in the tournament at this same venue. Peshawar Zalmi powered their way to pile up a massive 203 for seven from their 20 overs in the match against Karachi Kings. They will look for a similar performance from their formidable batting line-up which is spearheaded by Kamran Akmal, Imam-ul-Haq, Liam Dawson and Darren Sammy.

Wicket-keeper batsman Akmal and Imam are currently in tremendous form following their heroics in the previous match where they figured in a spectacular century opening stand. Left-hander Imam is also their highest run-getter this season with an aggregate of 257 runs from nine matches at an average of 28.55 and a strike-rate of 124.15. In addition, right-hander Kamran has a tally of 240 runs from 10 matches at an average of 24.00 and a strike-rate of 137.14.

Meanwhile, right-arm fast bowler Hasan Ali has also hit a purple patch this season where he has emerged as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far. He is currently on top of the list with a tally of 21 wickets from 10 matches at an average of 38.2 and an economy rate of 6.36.

 

Quetta Gladiators – key players

They were the first team to qualify for the playoffs but yet they had to settle for the second place in the points table following a narrow one-run defeat at the hands of Karachi Kings in their final league match of the tournament. Now they have a real game in their hands and they need a quick turnaround to change their fortunes and to secure a place in this year’s final encounter. Quetta Gladiators, of course, will have the psychological advantage going into this important fixture as they
had the satisfaction of overcoming the same opponents twice, in the first round as well as in the second-round.

Even then, this will be a completely new game and Quetta Gladiators will bank heavily on their overseas players to deliver the results at this vital stage. They will be hoping that the former Australian opener Shane Watson would fire all cylinders having already taken the top spot in the batting rankings. The 37-year-old dashing right-hander has an aggregate of 352 runs from 10 games at an excellent average of 44.0 and a solid strike-rate of 140.80. The others who could provide the runs for Quetta Gladiators are Ahmed Shehzad (252), Umar Akmal (255) and South African left-hander Rilee Rossouw (245).

Meanwhile, left-arm paceman Sohail Tanvir and Australian leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed are the two main strike bowlers for Quetta Gladiators. Tanvir has a total of 15 wickets to his credit from 10 matches at an average of 17.66 while Ahmed has picked-up 10 scalps from 10 games at an average of 26.80.
