Who will play Quetta Gladiators in the final of PSL 2019? The question will be finally answered tonight as Peshawar Zalmi will face Islamabad United in the second eliminator, the winner will then move into the finale of the tournament. The stakes are high for both the United and Zalmis as these two teams are considered to be the most successful teams of the tournament. The strengths for both the teams are their bowling departments, whether it’s Sami and Shadab in the United squad or Hasan and Wahab in Zalmi squad, the attack is quite lethal.
Peshawar Zalmi are also heavily depending on their veteran players Misbah, Sammy and Pollard for this crucial match. In the first qualifier against Quetta Gladiators, it was Sammy and Pollard who provided some great resistance towards the end helping the team inch closer to victory, however, later played some callous shots resulting in wickets, leading to Zalmi’s defeat. This time they will be extra careful because they cannot afford to falter now.
Islamabad United are pretty confident because they had a sensational victory in the first eliminator against Karachi Kings. Middle order saved United and considering their current batting form, it seems they are eyeing to put a big total on board for the second eliminator. Asif Ali, Cameron Delport and Luke Ronchi can provide the initial breakthrough to the team.
