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.
