PZ vs QG Team Previews

Peshawar Zalmi

Peshawar Zalmi will start their pursuit of a second PSL title. They won the tournament in 2017 and have since been runners-up on three occasions. In 2022 and 2023, they were eliminated from contention at the play-off stage. Let's see how they might fare this season.

The latest big news ouf of the Zalmi camp is the recruitment of West Indies fast bowler Shamar Joseph. He has replaced England star Gus Atkinson in the squad and comes with plenty of expectation after shining against Australia in Test cricket recently.

England batter Daniel Mousley is an exciting prospect for Zalmi. He hasn't been capped at ODI or T20I level yet, but has gathered experience for MI Emirates in the International League T20 in the United Arab Emirates. This should bode well for his time in Pakistan.

Peshawar Zalmi Playing 11

Saim Ayub, Babar Azam, Mohammad Haris, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Rovman Powell, Asif Ali, Dan Mousley, Aamer Jamal, Luke Wood, Mohammad Zeeshan, Salman Irshad.

Quetta Gladiators

Quetta won the 2019 PSL title, but have since collected four group-stage exits. It has been five years since they reached the play-offs - and this disappointing recent record could empower or limit them this time. The Gladiators have an interesting few weeks ahead of them.

They have a new captain. South African Rilee Rossouw has succeeded Sarfaraz Ahmed. The Gladiators have also roped in former Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait, who should add plenty of value to the support staff. He will work alongside head coach Shane Watson.

West Indian batter Sherfane Rutherford and Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga are big assets for Quetta. Hasaranga should be one of the best wrist spinners on display during the tournament, while Rutherford score quickly toward the top of the order.

Quetta Gladiators Playing 11

Jason Roy, Saud Shakeel, Khawaja Nafay, Rilee Rossouw, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Sherfane Rutherford, Akeal Hosein, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Amir, Abrar Ahmad.

PZ vs QG Toss Prediction

The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore is the venue for this match. The last three T20Is at this ground have seen decisions to bat first at the toss.

Five of the last six T20Is here have been won by the team batting first. It's likely the team to win the toss this time will follow suit and elect to bat first as well.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The last three first-innings totals in T20I cricket at this ground have been 163, 192 and 182. This is a relatively high-scoring ground. A first-innings score of approximately 170-plus can be considered competitive.

Spin can be a key factor. It's worth selecting two specialist slow bowlers in Lahore. No rain is forecast in Lahore on matchday. Hot and humind weather is expected.

PZ vs QG Betting Tips

Peshawar look in a stronger position to win than Quetta. Zalmi's batting resources are impressive. Quetta's bowling department seems light.
