Key Players

Shoaib Malik 

Forth of the playoffs, Peshawar Zalmi hopes that their geriatric all-rounder Shoaib Malik resumes his excellent record as he is the spine of Zalmi middle-order. The batter lately scored 38 runs off just 23 balls cracking two boundaries and equal most against Islamabad United, which assisted his franchise to succeed the game by 10 runs.

Shaheen Afridi

Ranking on the fourth spot for the most reaped wickets index of the contest, Skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi will be accountable for delivering an early breakthrough for his flank in the game. In nine games, the left-arm fast bowler has reaped 14 wickets in 36 overs he has bowled so far in the competation.

Team News

On Saturday, starter Abdullah Shafique was dumped out of starting playing XI for the success over Islamabad United with keeper-batter Phil Salt pushing up to extend and Sohail Akhtar arriving into the squad. The difference reaped quick bounties, and we predict seeing the starting pair of Fakhar Zaman and Salt again in this match. 

Mohammad Umar skipped out in Zalmi’s ten-run triumph over Islamabad United, with 19-year old Yasir Khan arriving in for his initial impression of the month. Khan smashed 35 runs from 24 balls and, with the remainder of the squad bearing no damages, we do not anticipate seeing any shifts in the team.

Lahore Qalandars vs Peshawar Zalmi Prediction

We hope to witness a great game between Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars, who beat Islamabad United in their previous meeting. Peshawar Zalmi is on a good winning target and is batting nicely but may discover that Lahore Qalandars’ bowling aggression is too powerful. We are expecting success for Lahore Qalandars to complete the group stage.
