Shaheen Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars will be up against Wahab Riaz’s Peshawar Zalmi on Wednesday evening at the National Stadium in Karachi. Both the teams have played two games so far and have won a game each. Lahore Qalandars have an edge over Zalmi in the net run rate. Fakhar Zaman has done really well for Qalandars at the top of the order, while Zalmi have found a good middle-order batter in Hussain Talat. It is expected to be an interesting game with both teams going for a win.

Zaman has dominated the bowlers in both the games he has played so far and thus becomes a must-pick. From the Zalmi camp, Hussain Talat and Shoaib Malik did well in the opener. Zalmi bowlers got nothing against Islamabad United as they were taken to cleaners by Paul Stirling and Alex Hales. Nonetheless, Wahab Riaz will be the key bowler. Qalandars’ captain Shaheen Afridi will also be a good pick for the fantasy team.
