Islamabad United will face off against Peshawar Zalmi in the tenth match of the Pakistan Super League match. Both teams need a win and they will fight to get the job done in this one. Making a cricket prediction for this match will be rather tough. Both teams can be rather unpredictable.
When a 197 target is on board, the likes of Imad Wasim, Mohammed Amir and Nabi holding the ball in hand. Google cricket suggests that if one team can still manage to cross the line with one over to spare – it is Islamabad United. They come into the game after trouncing Karachi Kings in a thriller. Depending on Alex Hales’ form and local touches by Talat and Ahmed, the team looks in good shape. In Asif Ali they have a good pinch hitter in the tail too.

However, concerns might float up because ultimately the 197 runs were given by their bowlers. Shadab Khan, Haider Ali and Mohammad Wasim need to step up, take responsibility and not have eight arms doing the job in 20 overs.
Islamabad United Squad: Philip Salt (wk), Alex Hales, Shadab Khan (C), Hussain Talat, Asif Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Lewis Gregory, Faheem Ashraf, Zafar Gohar, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Akif Javed, Ahmed Safi Abdullah, Zeeshan Zameer, Rohail Nazir, Muhammad Musa, Ali Khan, Fawad Ahmed, Reece Topley
Like Islamabad United, Wahab Riaz’s Peshawar Zalmi also come riding on a 190+ chase. After going down in their opening fixture against Lahore Qualandars they came back strongly to hand Multan Sultans a six wicket defeat. The much this win would sound like a regular one, Zalmi looked dangerous when they scored 197, chasing the target with one over to spare.
Peshawar Zalmi: Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal (wk), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Sherfane Rutherford, Shoaib Malik, Haider Ali, Wahab Riaz (C), Saqib Mahmood, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Imran, Ravi Bopara, Amad Butt, David Miller, Umaid Asif, Abrar Ahmed, Waqar Salamkheil, Mohammad Aamir Khan, Mohammad Imran
Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi have faced each other 12 times in PSL. United have won six matches and Zalmi have emerged victorious on six occasions.
It should be a batting fest. The batsmen in both sides are doing well, the bowlers showing a hint of struggle and that calls for a 350 run plus overall match. However, if the scales were to tilt one way, Peshawar Zalmi- riding on a stronger bowling line-up- must win the game.
