The batting line-up will be led by their captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who is undoubtedly one of the most successful batsmen in the Pakistani cricket team. Having captained in the ODI and Test format, his experience will be definitely beneficial.

Considering their all-rounders, they have got Shane Watson and Andre Russell as their overseas players. Watson holds a series of records in the T20 format, and is certainly one of the most lethal players with both – bat and ball. He will be accompanied by his compatriot Brad Haddin, who is yet another experienced player.

As for Peshawar Zalmi, they are certainly on the same field seeing that they have got the Bangladeshi batsman Tamim Iqbal and the Australian Brad Hodge in the batting line-up. However, their wow factor certainly lies with their captain Shahid Afridi, who holds the record for most Man of the Matches awards in the T20 format. He will be playing side by side with his compatriot Kamran Akmal, who is one of the most successful wicket-keeper in his country. Moreover, the addition of Darren Sammy in the squad only makes them far stronger.

With Shaun Tait leading the attack in bowling, this match is going to be an epic battle. At this time, it may be hard to predict the winner, but the odds are in the favor of Islamabad United, owing to their slightly superior squad.
