Share

Peshawar Zalmi have assembled a pretty good squad for PSL 2022. The absence of Saqib Mahmood for the entirety of the last season hurt them big time.

Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 2022

They started their season very well in 2021 but faded away in the second half of the league that took place in UAE after the season came to a halt due to covid-19 outbreak in Pakistan but still managed to finish as the runners up of Pakistan Super League.

Kamran Akmal has withdrawn from the squad but they still have all bases covered with respect to their squad. The two experienced veterans in Wahab Riaz and Shoaib Malik will play this season as well.

Another team against whom Zalmi have a positive win loss ratio but not much of a difference as they have won just one additional game than Quetta Gladiators.

Both the games in the previous season turned out to be an one sided affair with Zalmi winning it.
