Match 13: Rain Spoils the Party as United & Zalmi Share Points

No play was possible in Rawalpindi due to rain as both sides shared a point each.


Today’s second match, Islamabad United vs. Peshawar Zalmi is likely to be spoiled by rain, which has been persistent all day in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

The two teams are currently placed at 3rd and 4th with 4 points each and if the rain continues, both teams will share a point each. It remains to be seen whether the ground staff can get pitch and outfield ready for play for today’s match or not.

United will be boosted by the presence of Dale Steyn, who has just landed in Pakistan. It is unlikely that he will feature today considering he will be jet-lagged after a long flight.

Players to Lookout For

Islamabad United:
Shadab Khan is batting at number 4 in this year’s PSL and has been quite impressive with the bat. His all-round abilities are proving quite handy for the United.

Peshawar Zalmi:
Haider Ali has been a revelation and he is already being dubbed as a future superstar. He is a very important part of Zalmi and rightly so.
