Peshawar Zalmi take on Lahore Qalandars in another must-win game at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium today.
Peshawar overcame Karachi Kings by 44 runs on Thursday to avoid elimination and keep themselves alive in the third edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) for another day.
If Peshawar win today, they will be through to the top 4, leaving Karachi and Multan to wait for the result of the last league match of this PSL: Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings.
It will be advantage Karachi: if they win, they’re through. Even if they don’t, they’ll have to try their best to score as much as possible to be able to surpass Multan on NRR, as a Karachi defeat scenario would see them tied with Multan with 9 points each.
Lahore Qalandars have already been eliminated from the later stages of the tournament.
In their last encounter, on March 3, Peshawar Zalmi crushed Lahore Qalandars by 10 wickets, driven by Player-of-the-Match Liam Dawson’s three-wicket haul for 20 runs and Hasan Ali’s three for 22.
