Islamabad United Recent Form

Islamabad have a chance to make the PSL final for the first time since 2018. Even though they only won 4/10 of the group matches!

United’s form has been getting worse too. They’ve won only 1/5 games since the tournament moved to Lahore.

That win was against Karachi Kings – the worst team in PSL – and it was only by 1 run.

Team News

United have struggled with injuries and illness throughout PSL 2022. Because of those injuries, Alex Hales has made a surprise comeback.

The Englishman had left the PSL after struggling with coronavirus restrictions. His form wasn’t great either, but his return is welcome.

It would be even better news for United if Shadab Khan was fit to play. United’s captain has missed three matches because of a groin problem. His team have not performed well without him.

Player to Watch: Liam Dawson

Liam Dawson arrived late to the 2022 PSL and has only played 5 matches so far. But he’s worth keeping an eye on today.

A useful off-spinner, Dawson made his Test debut for England in India back in 2016.

With the ball in PSL this year, he’s taken 7 wickets with a healthy economy rate of 6.59.

With the bat, he’s been promoted up the order and could be a dangerous pinch-hitter for United.

Islamabad United’s Likely XI

Alex Hales, Will Jacks, Shadab Khan, Liam Dawson, Azam Khan, Danish Aziz, Asif Ali, Faheen Ashraf, Waqas Maqsood, Mohammad Wasim, Marchant de Lange

Peshawar Zalmi Recent Form

I was impressed by the Zalmi in the group stages. Last year’s runners-up won 6/10 matches – or 6/8 against anyone who isn’t the mighty Multan Sultans!

They’ve won 4/5 in Lahore and look like they could make another run to the final.

As you are about to find out, the biggest issue for them now is injury and illness…

Team News

There could be changes for the Zalmi today – and these changes might change your view of the Islamabad vs Peshawar odds.

Liam Livingstone and Sherfane Rutherford are out of the tournament injured. Zalmi have also had a Covid outbreak – Ben Cutting, Usman Qadir and Sohail Akhtar are all set to miss this game.

Luckily, captain Wahab Riaz still has the likes of Shoaib Malik and Hussain Talat to count on with the bat.

Player to Watch: Mohammad Haris

Mohammad Haris has only played the Zalmi’s last four matches in PSL 2022. But he has made an instant impact

The 20-year-old batter has smashed 154 runs from 4 innings – at an incredible strike rate of more than 190.

His team will be missing some big players today, so the pressure is on the youngster to deliver again. So far, he looks like he thrives under such pressure!

Peshawar Zalmi’s Likely XI

Mohammad Haris, Hazratullah Zazai, Kamran Akmal, Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Hussain Talat, Amad Butt, Wahab Riaz, Khalid Usman, Mohammad Umar, Arshad Iqbal

Venue & conditions

The toss could be crucial in this match. The team batting first has won 12/16 PSL games since the tournament switched to Lahore. (They needed a super over to win one of those matches.)

The average first-innings score from those games is 177.

The weather is expected to be dry for this night match.

Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Head-to-Head

Since the PSL began in 2016, the Peshawar vs Islamabad head-to-head record is: 9 wins for Zalmi; 8 wins for United. One match has been abandoned. Peshawar have won seven of the last 10 completed matches – including 1/2 in 2022.

Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Toss Prediction

The Peshawar vs Islamabad toss winner statistics show a strong bias. Zalmi have won 12/17 previous tosses. I am backing Zalmi to extend their excellent record against United and win the toss in this match.

Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Peshawar Zalmi @ 1.78 with Pure Win

Looking at these two’s recent results, the win probability of Peshawar vs Islamabad is firmly in favour of Zalmi.

But can the Zalmi overcome their injury and illness issues? And will United bounce back strongly if they have Alex Hales and Shadab Khan available?

My view is that Zalmi still have the core of their team together. Players like Wahab Riaz and Shoaib Malik have the experience to guide them through this tricky match.

My betting prediction is for Zalmi to win this one and go forward to another eliminator against Lahore Qalandars on Friday.
