Teams Preview

Islamabad United Preview

Islamabad United has one of the strongest batting line-ups in PSL with a host of local and international stars at their disposal. Colin Ingram set the tone of their innings with his 63 runs in the last match. Skipper Shadab Khan and Colin Munro came up with crucial 30+ cameos to take their team to a total of 187 runs. Dawid Malan, Luke Ronchi, and Asif Ali have made vital contributions in the earlier matches this season.

They have a good pace attack with the likes of Rumaan Raees, Mohammed Musa, and Faheem Ashraf in their team. Skiupper Shadab Khan will lead the spin bowling alongside Ahmed Safi Abdullah in the middle overs. Their bowling attack lacks experience in bigger stages barring their skipper and ended up giving away 190 runs in the chase the last match.

Key Players:

Shadab Khan – Shadab Khan has scores of 52 & 39 in the last two matches he batted at a strike rate of 150+. He also has 4 wickets to his name and is putting on a good all-round show this season.

Fahren Ashraf – Fahreen Ashraf has 9 wickets in the 4 matches but his economy rate of 9 RPO is a big concern for the team. He will look to improve his economy arte and keep continuing to take wickets in the middle overs.

Islamabad United Predicted Playing XI:

Luke Ronchi (wk), Dawid Malan, Colin Ingram, Colin Munro, Asif Ali, Amad Butt, Rumman Raees, Shadab Khan (c), Faheem Ashraf, Muhammad Musa, Ahmed Safi Abdullah

Winning Prediction

Islamabad United will pip over Peshawar Zalmi easily in the batting department in terms of T20 experience of players but Peshawar will boast some exciting young talents like Banton and Haider Ali. Peshawar Zalmi has a better pace attack than Islamabad but does not have an incisive spin bowler in their playing XI. We expect Islamabad to win this match.

Islamabad United will win the match!
