This is a must-win game for both sides and both teams would be eager to put their best foot forward in this fixture since a place in the final is at stake. While the winner of the match will meet Multan Sultans in the final of the tournament on Thursday, a defeat here would imply “better luck next time”.

While Islamabad lost their first opportunity to secure their place in the final as they lost to Multan Sultans, Peshawar Zalmi are coming on the back of a win and could be high on energy and confidence. Nonetheless, this is a different game and both sides will look to outperform each other.

Analysis:

It’s the all important knockout game and so expect the senior pros and ones in form to step up. If there’s a place for just one keeper in the side, keep calm and choose Kamran Akmal who has fetched great runs this season. Among the batters, there are plenty of choices but Usman Khawaja and Colin Munro are the kind of impact players right at the top of the order that one won’t want to look beyond them. Shoaib Malik and Hazratullah Zazai have been in for Peshawar and might play a role here as well. The pro tip is to choose quite a few all-rounders who can impact the match with more than one skill set and so the likes of Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Umaid Asif, Hussain Talat all become crucial. Similarly, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Wasim are the in-form bowling options who can be considered.
