The 10th game of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) will see Peshawar Zalmi facing Islamabad United. With the latter yet to lose a game this season, Saturday’s second match at the National Stadium in Karachi will be an entertaining watch.
At the time of writing, Peshawar Zalmi have won one and lost one in PSL 2021. Although they started their campaign with a loss, Wahab Riaz’s men bounced back straight away, beating Multan Sultans by six wickets in their second game.
The inclusion of Tom Kohler-Cadmore has beefed up the top order. With players like Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, and Imam-ul-Haq in their ranks, Peshawar Zalmi have an impressive batting lineup.
Their next opponent, Islamabad United are PSL 2021’s most in-form team at the moment. After having won their first two games, Shadab Khan’s men are high on confidence.
United come into the match, having pulled off PSL 2021’s highest run chase so far. They successfully reached the Karachi Kings’ target of 197 with five balls to spare. With Alex Hales firing in the last game, the Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United game has the potential to see high totals on the board from both sides.
While the batters may steal the limelight, the game will also see some of the league’s best bowlers in action. From Saqib Mahmood to Mohammad Wasim, the bowlers on show will make sure the batsmen don’t run away with the game.
