Match Preview

The final match of the PSL 7 group stages will pit Lahore Qalandars against Peshawar Zalmi. Both teams have already qualified for the PSL play-offs, with Lahore finishing second and Zalmi third in the PSL points standings. Zalmi will draw level on points with Lahore with a win, but they will remain in third place because to their lower net run rate.

Rashid Khan, Lahore’s standout player, would be unavailable for the balance of the campaign. Fawad Ahmed has been brought in as his successor, and the team is hoping he can make a similar influence in the bowling department.For the remainder of the campaign, Peshawar will be without a number of players. Liam Livingstone, Sherfane Rutherford, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore have all returned to the country, putting Zalmi in a pickle heading into the play-offs.
