|Man of the Match: Kamran Akmal|
Peshawar Zalmi’s made the best of batting first. The openers Kamran Akmal and Imam were very effective and with a consolidated partnership gave a remarkable performance.
After 10 overs, the score-board showed a solid score 117 without losing a wicket.
There was a lack of good bowling spells from Team United, ensuing a bigger target for them to be chased as Zalmis were unstoppable during their innings.
Imam’s wicket by Delport in 12th over gave some oxygen to Islamabad as the openers were bent on scoring as per their wish.
Peshawar Zalmi batting wise has been the most destructing team in PSL 4, striking at 10.8 runs per over and scoring a boundary once in every 4 deliveries.
The innings terminated at a target of 215 Runs from 20 overs.
Islamabad United Innings
With a reasonably high target to be chased, the Islamabad United openers, Ronchi and Delport, did not click and thereby were not as effective as in their past performances.
In 3rd over, the first opener was ousted by Hasan Ali and the match started to get tilted towards Zalmis. Alex Hales was then a new hope, which soon went away scoring a run and playing 5 balls.
The bowlers of Peshawar Zalmi had rather a bolstered bowling strategy as they conceived minimal scores, which kept Islamabad from reaching the target.
Hasan Ali and CJ Jordan performed extraordinarily well by taking 3 wickets each and their bowling spells became a game-changer.
The Eliminator-2 match of PSL-4 was won by Peshawar Zalmi by 48 Runs. Who will play the FINAL against Quetta Gladiators.
