Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and opted to field against Islamabad United in the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) Eliminator-2 at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.
A win for either of the sides will mean that they will qualify for the finals, where they will face off against Multan Sultans — who have made it to the finals for the first time.
United have come in the game under pressure as they had suffered a 31-run defeat at the hands of the Sultans in the Qualifier, a day earlier.
Meanwhile, the Wahab Riaz-led Zalmi have come confident into the game, as they triumphed over Karachi Kings — with a ball to spare — by 5 wickets, on the same day.
