Players to Lookout For

Peshawar Zalmi:
Kamran Akmal is yet to fire in this edition of the PSL, however, he has a reputation for dismantling bowling line-ups. This is the reason why he is the all-time leading run-scorer in the league.

Islamabad United:
Rumman Raees is an underdog, who always impresses with his economic spells, curbing the flow of runs no matter what stage of the match he comes in to bowl. He will be a player to watch out for in today’s clash.
