The second Qualifier of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL 2021) will see Islamabad United lock horns with Peshawar Zalmi at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on June 22 (Tuesday). The winner of this game will face Multan Sultans in the illustrious final on June 24.
Peshawar Zalmi come into this game knocking off Karachi Kings in the Eliminator 1 banking on Hazratullah Zazai’s swashbuckling half-century. However, their strength lies in bowling with Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Irfan leading the pack. However, the batters need to show more application against the bowling attack of Islamabad United.
On the other hand, Islamabad United suffered a huge loss against Multan Sultans in the first Qualifier despite a consistent run in the group stages. They have quality cricketers in their ranks and will bank on them to sail past the Peshawar challenge.
