PSL 2023 T20 Eliminator 1 Match Overview
Islamabad United did not get a good start to this season of Pakistan Super League but they got the winning momentum at the right time and won some matches in a row. They had played ten matches with six wins to their name. They lost four matches and are holding the third position on the points table. They are equal in the points with Multan Sultans but are poor in net run rate. They are going to face Peshawar Zalmi in the first eliminator match of this tournament.
Peshawar Zalmi is the other team that was not much impressive in some early matches of the Pakistan Super League. They also had been lucky as they won some important matches. They had won five out of ten matches played till now. They had lost five matches and are holding the fourth position on the ladder. This is a very important match for both teams as the winner of this match will face Lahore Qalandars in Eliminator 2 match while the loser. Both teams will play this match with full force.
Islamabad United Previews
Islamabad United had performed well in almost each and every game of this tournament. They lost the matches by a very close margin. The batting order of this team had just been good and they had chased a total of 200 plus runs in many games in this tournament. They lost their most recent match against Peshawar Zalmi by a short margin of 13 runs and earlier, they were beaten by Lahore Qalandars by a huge margin of 119 runs. Their bowling unit did not perform well as they leaked 226 runs in 20 overs. We have no doubt that the bowling unit of Islamabad United is very strong but they did not perform well. They used six bowlers in that match where Fazalhaq Farooqi was the highest wicket-taker from their side with three wickets to his name in four overs while he was charged for 40 runs. Hasan Ali was the other bowler who performed well and picked one wicket in four overs against 33 runs. Mohammad Wasim Jr was the other bowler from their side who had a wicket to his name but he leaked a lot of runs.
Mohammad Wasim Jr was charged with 48 runs in four overs while Faheem Ashraf, Mubasir Khan, and the skipper, Shadab Khan were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket. Remember that Faheem Ashraf was charged for 43 runs in four overs. We think that Islamabad United will make a couple of changes in the bowling unit for this match. The batting order of Islamabad United is also strong but totally failed to give the best performance and their full team came back to the pavilion on a total of just 107 runs in 15.1 overs while chasing the target of 227 runs. Hasan Ali and Alex Hales were the highest run-scorers with just 18 runs to their names each. Rahmanullah Gurbaz is a strong batsman of this team but he also failed to give the best performance and scored 15 runs. Colin Munro, Shadab Khan, Mubasir Khan, Asif Ali, and Faheem Ashraf are part of the batting squad of Islamabad United and had performed well in this tournament but these all batsmen totally failed to give the best performance in the previous match. Islamabad United is a team that can bounce back and we are sure that they will make comeback in this match. Remember that they had faced Peshawar Zalmi in two matches with one win and the other loss.
Peshawar Zalmi Previews
Peshawar Zalmi had performed well in this tournament but back-to-back lose in two important matches is the main reason why they are in the 4th spot on the ladder. They bounced back strongly and won their very important match against the same team, Islamabad United with a margin of 13 runs. Babar Azam is leading Peshawar Zalmi for the first time in the history of PSL and had scored 416 runs in ten matches. He scored four fifties and one hundred in this tournament. Tom Kohler-Cadmore is the other batsman of this team who had been good and scored 309 runs. The strike rate of Kohler-Cadmore had just been outstanding which is near about 170. Peshawar Zalmi had a got young talent in the shape of Saim Ayub. He also had been superb with the bat and scored 309 runs with a strike rate of 168. Mohammad Haris is the other batsman who played a main role in each and every game of Peshawar Zalmi.
Mohammad Haris had scored 231 runs but his strike rate had just been outstanding which is near about 200. We are hoping that Babar Azam, Mohammad Haris, Saim Ayub, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will play a main for Peshawar Zalmi in this match. The batting order of Peshawar Zalmi is strong and had played aggressively and we are sure that they will give a tough time to almost each and every bowler of Islamabad United. The big problem of Peshawar Zalmi had been the big problem and their poor bowling performance had been the main reason why they had lost to many matches. Wahab Riaz had been the leading wicket-taker from their side in this tournament with nine wickets to his name. Khurram Shahzad, Sufiyan Muqeem, James Neeshan, and Aamer Jamal are the other bowlers of Peshawar Zalmi but these all bowlers had not been much impressive in this tournament. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Khurram Shahzad, and James Neesham are the main players of this team and they players should give their best performance in this very important game otherwise, Peshawar Zalmi can face a lot of problems in this game.
