Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Predictions, Betting Tips & Live Cricket Ball by Ball Score

Peshawar Zalmi Vs Islamabad UnitedThe Islamabad United will contest with the Peshawar Zalmi in the final of the third season of the Pakistan Super League. This game will be played on Sunday in Karachi. The match will begin at ​7 pm PST (​2 pm GMT) on March ​​25​, 2018.

​It’s the grand finale of the third season of the Pakistan Super League and it’s the Peshawar Zalmi yet again who will contest in the final – for the second time in a row. And up against them are a side in Islamabad United who are themselves making the final for the second time.

Both times, these two sides won the title which means that either side will become the first team in the short PSL history to make it two titles in the competition.

On paper, the Islamabad United look like a team to beat. I mean how else do you describe a side that has won eight of their 11 games this season including the first Qualifier in which ​they routed the Karachi Kings in such an easy manner.

Batting first, Karachi Kings look to have gotten themselves to a fighting score in that first Qualifier, scoring 154/4 in 20 overs on a flattish surface. This was followed by a counterattack of the biggest kinds you would see in this format of the game.

Luke Ronchi, the third-highest run-getter in the tournament, wasn’t done even then. He slapped a near-100 to get them to the target in a mere 12.3 overs – that’s with 45 balls to spare. That was the biggest margin of a win in this format.

Ronchi’s 383 runs might be the highest in the tournament but his average of 42.55 is the highest and he has been scoring his runs at 10.78 runs an over – the only batsman who has scored quicker than is Darren Sammy and he’s made just about 150 runs.

Speaking of Sammy, a lot of credit must be given to him for the way he has led the side to the final. The Zalmis were down and out and buried and it’s been Sammy’s brilliant leadership skills that have seen the team through to the final.

He had his injury issues which made him miss matches and even when he returned, he has been limping his way around but his captaincy in the previous two games was brilliant.

First they managed to surprise the Quetta Gladiators in a game their opposition should have won and then lost and then won again before they lost it. The Zalmis had reached the second playoffs game.

Here they took out the much more fancied, but injury-hit Karachi Kings and again the Zalmis batted first. They made 170 for seven thanks to Kamran Akmal’s 77 from a mere 27 balls in a game that was reduced due to rain.

And while Joe Denly and Babar Azam hit half-centuries for their opposition there was no way they were chasing this target down. Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi PSL final match prediction, betting tips & preview are placed below.
