Preview: After a hard-fought league phase in the Pakistan T20 League, the stage is set for the first eliminator of the tournament with Peshawar Zalmi locking horns with Karachi Kings on Monday. While both the sides finished on same points, Kings will have an edge in this contest as they are coming on the back of two consecutive wins. With two well-balanced sides battling out against each other in a do-or-die clash, it is certainly going to be a mouth-watering match in Abu Dhabi.
Analysis: All eyes will be on Kings star batsman Babar Azam who is currently the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 501 runs. While Sharjeel Khan and Chadwick Walton will also be key for them, veteran duo of Shoaib Malik and Kamran Akmal will have all the responsibility to score for Zalmi. Among the bowlers, Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz could be vital as they have been taking wickets on a regular basis throughout the tournament.
