Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United, PSL 2021

Two in-form teams, in Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, will go head-to-head looking for a third straight win at the start of the 2021 Pakistan Super League. Islamabad have won two from two so far, and Peshawar Zalmi two from three, and they now face-off at Karachi’s National Stadium on February 27. The live action starts at 19:00 local time.

Islamabad started by chasing 151 to beat Multan Sultans with Lewis Gregory central to that win with bat and ball. Last time out, they needed 197 to beat defending champions Karachi Kings, but a good overall batting performance – and some slack fielding – helped them get home with five balls to spare in a five-wicket victory.
 Peshawar Zalmi opened with a disappointing defeat to Lahore Qalandars but they too have got back to winning ways with some big chases. They hit 197/4 in 19 overs to beat Multan Sultans and then 202/7 with three balls remaining to beat Quetta last time out.

Peshawar Zalmi Team News & Playing 11

PSZ Team News

Peshawar Zalmi were unchanged last time out and, after another win, could stick with the same winning XI for this game too.

PSZ Key Players

  • Shoaib Malik: Building nicely with the bat on the back of scores of 26, 11* and 34 so far. He hit three sixes last time out and shared a 51-run partnership in five overs with Haider Ali.
  • Saqib Mahmood: Took 3-34 last time out to finish as Peshawar Zalmi’s top team bowler once again. He now has seven wickets in three games.
  • Haider Ali: Man of the match last time out for his half-century, which followed his vital late blast on the way to 24* in the win against Multan Sultans.

PSZ Team Form

Peshawar Zalmi have excelled chasing in each of their last two matches. Against Lahore Qalandars, Tom Kohler-Cadmore scored a half-century as they reached 197/4 in a six-wicket win. They went even better last time out too – Haider Ali the half-centurion on that occasion, as they hit 202/7 in 19.3 overs to beat Quetta by three wickets.

Islamabad United Team News & Playing 11

ISU Team News

Islamabad United stuck with a winning side last time out and were rewarded with another victory in PSL 2020. There is unlikely to be any rush for change at Islamabad at the moment.

ISU Key Players

  • Alex Hales: This season’s BBL top run-scorer scored 29 from 20 balls in the first game and then 46 from 21 last time out.
  • Lewis Gregory: His all-round performance was key to the opening victory and, though he was less prominent last time out, it proved he is a key all-rounder.
  • Hasan Ali: Wickets in each of Islamabad United’s two matches so far show what he is capable of at the top of the order. He finished 1-36 last time out.

ISU Team Form

After just two games and two wins, Islamabad United are only one behind their win tally from last season. They started with a three-wicket win against Multan Sultans, in which Lewis Gregory was their star all-rounder, before a five-wicket victory against Karachi Kings last time out. Alex Hales, Iftikhar Ahmed and Hussain Talat all scored in the 40s, as Islamabad hit 197/5 with five balls to spare.

Peshawar Zalmi vs Islamabad United Prediction

Both teams come into this on the back of two wins, but Islamabad are unbeaten so far and look a good bet for a third straight win.

Final Verdict

Islamabad United are favorites to win against Peshawar Zalmi. Back Islamabad United to beat Peshawar Zalmi.

PSZ vs ISU Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Kamran Akmal has out-scored Philip Salt so far, with the latter so far struggling for runs. Akmal looks the safer choice for the time being.

  • Batsmen

    Alex Hales and Haider Ali both played vital innings in their teams’ last match, while Sherfane Rutherford and Imam-ul-Haq have also proved they are key men for Peshawar Zalmi. Iftikhar Ahmed could be a good alternative after his important knock for Islamabad last time out, however.

  • All rounder

    Shoaib Malik’s batting has been gradually improving at the start of this tournament and he is 9.5 credits. He is less likely to bowl but he is also hard to ignore. Though both were quieter last time out, meanwhile, Lewis Gregory and Mohammad Wasim have already proved their value with good performances for Islamabad United.

  • Bowlers

    That leaves plenty in the bank for the bowlers and Hasan Ali and Wahab Riaz are both nine credits and therefore worth selecting. The top-performing bowler so far, however, has been Saqib Mahmood and he is just 8.5 credits, which makes him a must pick.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Saqib Mahmood is in fine wicket-taking form and worth picking after his seven wickets so far. He leads the way then, and fellow Englishman Alex Hales’ ever-dangerous batting could make the latter a good vice-captain.

PSZ vs ISU Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales (vc), Haider Ali, Sherfane Rutherford, Iftikhar Ahmed

  • All Rounder: Lewis Gregory, Mohammad Wasim, Shoaib Malik

  • Wicket Keeper:Kamran Akmal

  • Bowler:Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Saqib Mahmood (c)
