In the third match of the PSL second leg, Peshawar Zalmi are all set to lock horns with Lahore Qalandars on Thursday. This the first double header after the season resumed on Wednesday and will be a night match post the conclusion of the first game. While Lahore Qalandar would have played a match day before and would have got an idea of the conditions, this will be Peshawar's first match in the UAE. So far, Lahore have three wins from four matches and are sitting at the fourth place in the points tally while Peshawar have same number of wins having played a game extra. However, Peshawar pip Lahore on the points tally due to a better net run rate.
Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez are oblivious picks in the fantasy XI for this match. While both have scored invaluable runs for their side, they can also chip in with a few overs if the situation demands so and are more than useful with the ball. Other than that, Shaheen Shah Afridi & James Faulkner should also be trusted with a place in the fantasy side after their performance in the first match of Phase 2. Trust the veteran Kamran Akmal not only for his ability with the bat but owing to the fact that he can fetch points with the gloves behind the wicket too. Amad Butt is other all-round option that can be considered along with Faulkner. As far as the bowling is concerned - Rashid Khan, Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Irfan form a pretty potent bowling combination from a fantasy side point of view.
