PZ vs QG Team Previews

Peshawar Zalmi

Peshawar will go into this match in third position on the six-team points table. They have collected four wins from their last six matches and have some decent momentum. Zalmi are determined to add to the lone Pakistan Super League title they won in 2017.

Zalmi have this season's leading run-scorer Babar Azam among their batting resources. Azam has hit 394 runs in seven innings this tournament. This fine stretch of form includes one century and three half-tons. Azam has had solid support from Saim Ayub, who has gathered 222 runs in seven innings.

Arif Yaqoob, Luke Wood and Salman Irshad remain Zalmi's standout performers with the ball this season. The three seamers have taken eight wickets each. Yaqoob recently became the first bowler in the history of the PSL to snare four wickets in one over. Wood's accuracy and Irshad's tricky bowling action have been difficult for opposition batters to handle.

Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11

Saim Ayub, Babar Azam, Mohammad Haris, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Haseebullah Khan, Rovman Powell, Aamer Jamal, Luke Wood, Naveen ul Haq, Mehran Mumtaz, Khurram Shehzad.

Quetta Gladiators

Quetta's PSL campaign has bee rather stop-start lately. They swapped defeats for victories and endured a washout. The three victories in a row they collected at the start of the season have taken a backseat to inconsistency in the past week or two.

Jason Roy and Saud Shakeel have been the Gladiators' top performers with the bat. Roy has hit 215 runs to Shakeel's 197. They have batted six times each. The pairing has typified how well an international star from abroad can partner a top local talent from Pakistan.

The Gladiators' two most prolific bowlers this PSL season have been spinners. Abrar Ahmed and Akeal Hosein have shared 20 wickets. Ahmed is arguably the best leg-spinner in the tournament, while all-rounder Hosein's success with the ball has been coupled with some key contributions with the bat.
