Highlights & Analysis
    1. Islamabad United scored their highest ever total in PSL history, as they put up a massive total for the Zalmi to chase. Guided through by the composed JP Duminy, the United batting lineup paced their innings extremely well and, had it not been for a sensational spell of fast bowling from Wahab Riaz, the Islamabad side could have scored even more runs.
    2. The Zalmi never really stood a chance in the chase. It was a pristine display of spin bowling from Islamabad – among the best you’ll see in T20 cricket. There was grip, turn, flight, dip, loop – just everything you want to see from a spinner. Rare is the T20 that’s dominated so much by the spinners but this was that kind of game.
    3. No Peshawar batsman was able to carry the innings and pose a threat to the imposing total their side was chasing. In fact, none of Peshawar’s top eight managed to score more than a miserly 22 runs. Had it not been for a commendable batting effort from the lower order, the margin of victory may have been even greater.
    4. Islamabad go top with 10 points, having won four games on the bounce. Peshawar stay fifth, with three wins and four losses.
