Peshawar Zalmi strikes as Haan Ali has bowled a fantastic wicket maiden over. Bismillah Khan is back on the bench for Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi have taken an advantage in the first half.
This is it, PSL reached the final stages and the first playoff in under the way. Peshawar Zalmi is contesting against the mighty Quetta Gladiators and us and see a lot of hustle and bustle in the field. There are some pressured faces out there.
The winner of this game will step into the final while the loser will wait for the result of the second playoff between Islamabad Untied and Karachi Kings. The winner of the second play-off will then face the loser of Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators game.
At the moment, things are pretty tense. He local players are feeling the heat of playing this PSL. This is the make or break situation and local players don’t have such experience of playing such kind of games every now and then.
So there are strong possibilities that the local players might get under pressure. So both Afridi and Sarfraz will have to look into this thing really carefully. All they need is to keep an eye on all their players and keep boosting their confidence. Sarfraz and Afridi both are good in it. We have seen them backing up their local players in all the group stage games.
Peshawar Zalmi is contesting Quetta Gladiators in the first semi-final ten tomorrow the Islamabad United will take on the Karachi Kings. The winner of that game will face the loser of the first playoff.
So it will be hard for the Islamabad United or Karachi Kings to make it to the finals. One of them will have to beat 2 teams to reach the finals. On the other hand, there are strong chances that both Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators will reach the finals as well.
