PZ vs IU Live Telecast, Ball-by-ball Commentary, Live Streaming, and Match Updates, Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United, PSL 2022. The 1st Eliminator of HBL PSL 7 season will be played between Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore; the match will start at 07:30 PM IST, 02:00 GMT, 07:00 PM Local Time.
Even though Islamabad United became the first side in the history of the Pakistan Super League to qualify for playoffs with eight points, they could not have been luckier after advancing to the playoffs against a weakened opponent. This forthcoming encounter will pit them against Peshawar Zalmi, a team that performed admirably in the league stage, and it’s likely to be an exciting one. The game will be held in the Gadaffi Stadium, Lahore, Pakistan, on Thursday, 24 February 2022, between the two teams.
Peshawar Zalmi Overview
Four Peshawar Zalmi players tested positive for Covid-19 just before the team qualified for the playoffs. The fact that three of its players, Liam Livingstone, Sherfane Rutherford, and Tom Kohler Cadmore, were previously ruled out of the semifinals because of the illness might be a game-ending blow. In order to ensure Benny Howell is at his peak, Zalmi has brought him in for the rest of their matches.
Peshawar Zalmi performed admirably in the league round, winning six and losing only four games. In their most recent encounter, they beat Lahore Qalandars in the Super Over to secure two crucial points. In spite of the fact that they are lacking some of their most important foreign talent, their home-grown roster is strong.
Zalmi’s batsmen, namely Shoaib Malik, Hussain Talat, and Mohammad Haris, will play a major role in the team’s success. Wahab Riaz will be the one to answer for the team’s bowling performance. Beating Peshawar Zalmi would be a difficult assignment if they can’t rely on their trusted players.
Islamabad United Overview
They were once one of the best teams in the group stage, but Islamabad United lost their focus and momentum in the second half and were eliminated from the playoffs at the group stage’s finish. In the end, Islamabad United ended fourth with just eight points, after having spent much of the season in second place.
Shadab Khan’s injury, which he received earlier this season, was the key cause for United’s poor recent form, which he has now recovered from. As far as Islamabad United is concerned, Alex Hales’ return to the team will alleviate any worries they may have.
Shadab Khan’s comeback has made Islamabad United a far more formidable team than they were in recent encounters. They will need their best players to shine in this forthcoming encounter, and even if they do, it would be a difficult task to overcome Islamabad United.
