Shadab XI are slightly ahead with a winning record of 6-5 against Peshawar Zalmi. The two team’s previous match was washed out due to rain in Rawalpindi.

Playing XI

Islamabad United:
Luke Ronchi (WK), Colin Munro, Rizwan Hussain, Colin Ingram, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan (C), Amad Butt, Zafar Gohar, Rumman Raees, Dale Steyn, Akif Javed

Peshawar Zalmi:
Tom Banton, Kamran Akmal (WK), Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Liam Livingstone, Liam Dawson, Lewis Gregory, Wahab Riaz (C), Hasan Ali, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Amir Khan

Players to Lookout For

Islamabad United:
Asif Ali has had starts but he hasn’t had the impact he used to have in the previous seasons. He will have to step up his game.

Peshawar Zalmi:
Lewis Gregory has been a useful addition to the Zalmi squad. He is not only a good bowler but a very powerful lower-order batsman.
