Both teams have already qualified for next qualifying rounds but it’s still a big contest today between Peshawar Zalmi & Quetta Gladiators because both teams are the topper of the HBL PSL yet. Zalmi lost their match yesterday against Lahore Qalandars but didn’t make much difference for Zalmi but it helped Lahore Qalanders to reach the next level.
Peshawar Zalmi team’s last match performance was not so good in bowling batting both formats but it’s does not mean that they lost their consistency of hard work. Today pitch is supporting to spin bowlers but the bounce is still out there in the pitch so its still good pitch for batting and scoring good runs on the board but it’s also a bowler helping pitch too. Quetta Gladiators have won five-match out of six and Peshawar Zalmi played equal to Gladiators but they won four of them yet.
DJG Sammy dropped three catches yesterday all three was not easy there was 50/50 chance of all three times. Consistency of Quetta Gladiators victories may put pressure on all other teams but the Zalmi team needs to bat relax but field with maximum aggression because their key to success is their bowling attack and good fielding.
