Islamabad United v Peshawar Zalmi – Team News

  • Colin Munro – The big-hitting New Zealander hit top gear in the last game for United. He smashed an unbeaten 88 and will look to build on that.
  • Iftikhar Ahmed – Iftikhar is another Islamabad player that has been in good form of late. He followed up his 49 against Lahore by hitting an unbeaten 71 against the Kings
  • Haider Ali – The young batting prospect is still struggling for runs the PSL. He dropped down to number three in the last game but still fell cheaply.
  • Hazratullah Zazai – The 23-year-old Afghan opened for Zalmi as they defeated Karachi in their previous outing. He made an instant impact with a 26-ball 63.

Islamabad United v Peshawar Zalmi – Betting Tips and Prediction

This is an important clash in the race for a top-two finish but could also provide clues about the overall tournament winner.

Here is our selection of best bets for the fixture.

Back Peshawar for Highest Opening Partnership

The instant impact of Hazratullah Zazai and the recent form of Kamran Akmal gives Peshawar a good chance to have the highest opening partnership.

Colin Munro was excellent in the previous game for United but has been inconsistent alongside Usman Khawaja.

Preference goes to the Zalmi duo for this one at 2.0 with 22Bet.

Haider Can Return to Form

As already mentioned, Hazratullah Zazai had a good impact and Kamran Akmal has also done well for Peshawar.

However, having Haider Ali at three could be a big boost for them and he looks decent value in the top batsman market.

Should one of the openers fall early then he’ll get more time to shine, but if they start well he could have the benefit of playing with a little less pressure.

Backing him to be Peshawar’s top batsman at 4.33 with bet365 looks a value selection.

Iftikhar for Player of the Match

Iftikhar Ahmed has been in fine form in the middle-order for Islamabad.

He has 49 and 71 in his last two outings and has bowled a few overs without taking a wicket.

His all-round ability make him a prime candidate in the player of the match market, especially if his side’s openers fall early and he manages to add big runs.

He is priced at 13.0 with 22Bet to be the standout player in this game.
