Today Match Prediction

Peshawar Zalmi Preview:

Peshwar is unable to perform well in this season. They could only be managed to win three matches out of seven matches. Peshawar Zalmi is a good team and they won the trophy once back in 2017 and their performances in previous Pak Super League were exceptional as well. They also reached the final round but they couldn’t win the trophy.

Last night they performed really well against Quetta Gladiators. The match was reduced to 15 overs due to rain. In 15 overs, Zalmi scored 170 runs. Shoaib Malik scored half-century that’s why he was nominated as man of the match.

They really need to find out mistakes in their lineup before its too late. Like other teams, PZ also did some minor changes to their lineup. But Darren Sammy – like the previous season, will lead Zalmi. Key Players for Peshawar are Imam-ul-Haq, Haider Ali, Adil Amin, and Kamran Akmal.

Islamabad United Preview:

The first two matches of Islamabad wasn’t good as they faced defeat. Their position to date is at number two in the points table. The performance of United was satisfactory throughout the PSL seasons. They performed well in all seasons of the Pakistan Super League. But this time they seem a bit unbalanced.

Check PSL Schedule 2020

Their position is exactly the same as Peshawar. They won three matches out of seven and they have 7 points in hand. Zalmi also has seven points. But Islamabad is at number two due to a better run-rate as compared to Zalmi.

Some key and game-changer players for Islamabad United are Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Colin Munro, and Luke Ronchi. These will be the match-winning players for Islamabad United. But their start of the PSL 2020 is not good as they lost the opening match despite getting control of the match in both innings.

Who Will Win Today’s Match:

According to our prediction, Peshawar Zalmi seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of Kamran Akmal, Carlos Braithwaite and the skipper Darren Sammy. Kamran Akmal played an exceptional inning. Kamran Akmal is in great form these days.

Also, Darren Sammy is a good leader that will help PZ to win this match. And last but not the least, Shoaib Malik is playing really well these days. Last night they performed really well against Quetta Gladiators. The match was reduced to 15 overs due to rain. In 15 overs, Zalmi scored 170 runs. Shoaib Malik scored half-century that’s why he was nominated as man of the match.

While the presence of Wahab Riaz and Hassan Ali in the bowling lineup of Zalmi will help them to defend that total. So our experts are of the opinion that Zalmi will win this match from Islamabad.

Today Match & Toss Predictions

Toss will play a vital role in today’s contest. According to trendeetalk.comthe team who will win the toss today will choose to bowl first because it’s not a batting-first condition in Rawalpindi. So batting first will increase the winning chances for the bowling team. Toss winning team should opt to bowl first.

Weather Report

There will be a number of clouds during the match time in Rawalpindi. These days the weather isn’t great for cricket in Pindi. While the temperature will be between 13 and 26-degree celsius. So the weather will interfere with the gameplay a little bit. There will be humidity in the air as well.
