Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United, Match Prediction. An upbeat Peshawar Zalmi would be clashing with Islamabad United in Match 5 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022. While Peshawar would be looking ahead to record wins one after another under their helmet, and retain the solid winning momentum Islamabad would be enthusiastic to start their winning strike. Zalmi had got the nice of Quetta Gladiators in their tournament opener on Friday night by five wickets in the final.
While Peshwar Zalmi did win their first meeting of this term, their enemy on Sunday i.e. Islamabad United would be up for the challenge as they have a proper side that can make labor a bit Malik & Co. in the first of the double-headers. Meanwhile, Islamabad would also be hoping to avenge their suffering in the Eliminator 2 of the last season that ended their dreams of sealing a final berth.
Match: Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United, Match 5
Venue: National Stadium, Karachi
Date: January 30th,
Time: at 2:30 PM IST and 3:00 PM Local Time
The Karachi pitch has been a pleasing batting wicket so far excluding the beginning meeting between Karachi Kings and the defending winners Multan Sultans where the hosts were limited to 124. The team defeating the toss would preferably bowl willingly. However, considering that it is an afternoon game, it should not be astonishing that a captain would decide to bat after reaching it right at the toss.

Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United Head-to-Head
Shoaib Malik had performed a captain’s job to ideal as he finished off the progress with the bat for Peshawar Zalmi while pursuing a stiff target of 191 in their season skipper meeting facing against the Quetta Gladiators on Friday. The vet all-rounder performed a match-victorious knock of a 32-ball winning 48 at a strike rate of 150. Malik obtained the asking rate in control by destroying Australian left-arm pacer James Faulkner for 22 runs in the penultimate over and helped Zalmi get beyond the complete line with a few balls to spare.
Usman Qadir was the preference of the bowlers for Peshawar facing against the Gladiators as he finished his through with figures of 2/20 from his four overs at an economy rate of five. Qadir’s economic spell especially in the middle and death overs prevented Quetta from assigning a target over 200. Qadir recorded for a well-set Ahsan Ali and then released number three batter Ben Ducket without bothering the scorers. He would be anticipated to play a comparable role against Islamabad United on Sunday.
- Shoaib Malik’s side displayed an abundance of personality to recuperate from recognising 190-4 to hunt down the mark with 2 balls staying on Friday. All of Peshawar Zalmi’s batters chipped in with runs whereas only Usman Qadir had a good match with the ball. They gained the victory and we expect they will retain the same XI.
- Shadab Khan’s squad will not be far out from full strength for this match with only BBL winner Colin Munro still yet to join up with the squad. They have compelled a side who could go all the way and atone for the previous season’s poor complete. There are no harms in the camp.
