ISL vs PES Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Islamabad United is expected to win against Peshawar Zalmi.
It will be a cracker of a contest between No. 3 and No. 4 as both teams will put in their best foot forward to cement a place in the playoffs. Islamabad United looks a bit more well-settled side of the two and will pose as favorites to win this contest.
Peshawar Zalmi also performed terrifically in their last match beating Quetta Gladiators. Zalmi already made their appearance last year in the finals and will be looking to repeat the same this year.
Popular Betting Odds For ISL vs PES, Match 24, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman for Islamabad United- Shadab Khan
The skipper of Islamabad had led his team from the front hammering runs and bagging scalps continuously. In 7 games he has amassed 232 Runs with a strike rate of 165. After two early dismissals Khan hammered 34 off 26 in the last match against Karachi Kings. Khan is currently the leading wicket-taker in the PSL after 17 wickets with an 6.04 economy.
Top Batsman for Peshawar Zalmi- Hazratullah Zazai
The left-handed batter was instrumental in taking Peshawar Zalmi to the finals last season. The 23-year old slammed 137 runs in five games with his strike rate being in excess of 130. As the Lahore track is known to favor the batters, the Afghanistan international would back himself to target the Quetta bowlers. So far he has amassed 1988 runs in 80 T20 games with a strike rate close to 145.
Top Bowler for Islamabad United- Hasan Ali
Ali bagged two major scalps in the last match against Peshawar Zalmi while giving away 8.50 runs per over. He is a modern-day right-arm fast bowler who relies on variations rather than on raw pace and has bagged 60 wickets in 48 matches in his T20Is career so far. He is a good pick here for the betting players and is expected to continue his form on the Karachi pitch with his variations, especially in the death overs.
Top Bowler for Peshawar Zalmi- Usman Qadir
With the track being of assistance to spin, leg-spinners would be the best option to take wickets and Usman Qadir is a good pick in this regard. The leggie can take wickets in the middle overs and his ability to restrict the scoring rate in the middle overs makes him even more effective. With a T20 World Cup taking place later this year, Qadir would be determined to make a significant mark for the Zalmi’s. So far he has chipped 8 wickets in 6 matches and his leg-spin fetched him 65 wickets in 65 T20 matches so far.
