PSL 2020: Lahore Qalandars take on Peshawar Zalmi today

PSL 2020: Lahore Qalandars take on Peshawar Zalmi today
March 10, 2020
LAHORE (92 News) – After another victory inspired by Ben Dunk’s wonderful batting, Lahore Qalandars will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League match at the Gaddafi Stadium on Tuesday. The important match between Qalandars and Zalmi will be played today in Gaddafi Stadium at 7pm. At the Gaddafi Stadium against the Qalandars, Zalmi would be hoping for match-winning performances from the likes of seasoned Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik. Zalmi have the same goal but are placed at a much more comfortable position as compared to the Qalandars. With nine points, having played eight matches, won four, lost three and being awarded a point after their fixture against Islamabad United was abandoned due to rain, the Peshawar side need only one more win to become the second team to qualify for the play-offs after Multan Sultans. Qalandars, on the other hand, simply can’t let it happen placed fifth with six points after winning four matches out of seven. On Sunday, Qalandars defeated Karachi Kings by eight wickets in the PSL 2020 match at Qaddafi Stadium. The Qalandars chased down the 188-run target set by the Kings comfortably courtesy the onslaught of sixes by Ben Dunk, who sent the ball flying a massive 12 times, including the final shot of the match. Dunk fell short of a century, however managing to amass 99 runs off just 40 deliveries. Sohail Akhtar was the other big hitter who scored 68 off 46 balls. Both remained standing till the end of the innings, which came at 19.1 overs. Zalmi skipper Wahab Riaz, who replaced Darren Sammy recently, said his team were focused on Tuesday’s fixture against Qalandars but at the same time, Wahab said, both their remaining outings carry equal importance. Wahab said despite the Qalandars’ outstanding performances in two of their last three matches, Zalmi have the ability to beat them to ensure their qualification to the play-offs. The left-arm pacer said his team has a plan in place to minimise Dunk’s threat. Lahore Qalandars: Sohail Akhtar (captain), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shaheen Shah Afridi, David Wiese, Usman Shinwari, Haris Rauf, Salman Butt, Chris Lynn, Samit Patel, Seekkuge Prasanna, Ben Dunk, Farzan Raja, Jaahid Ali, Muhammad Faizan, Dane Vilas, Dilbar Hussain Peshawar Zalmi XI: Tom Banton, Kamran Akmal (wk), Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Liam Livingstone, Liam Dawson, Darren Sammy (capt), Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Amir Khan.
