PES vs ISL: Possible Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11 for Eliminator 1 of PSL 2022, Player Stats for Today’s Dream11 Team Prediction


Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11: The Eliminator 1 of the PSL 2022 will be played between Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United at Gadaffi Stadium on Thursday evening. The Zalmi have dealt a major blow just ahead of the fixture as four members have tested positive for Covid 19. The key all-rounder Ben Cutting is one of them along with Usman Qadir, Sohail Khan, and batting coach Hashim Amla.

Peshawar Zalmi finished third in the table with six wins and four defeats in ten outings and will be high on confidence after securing a win over Lahore Qalandars in the Super Over.  The Zalmi will be aiming to continue the good run and secure a spot in the Eliminator 2 as it will be the end of the road for the losing side.

Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United have faced each other twice in the ongoing season and managed a win each. Coming to head to head meetings, Zalmi have an upper hand, winning 9 out of the eighteen fixtures. The United have won eight games while one has ended in a no result.
