Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators have been the standout teams in the Pakistan Super League. They have not tasted defeat so far, and will be keen to maintain their record when they square off at Dubai International Stadium on Sunday for a thrilling encounter.
Peshawar and Quetta will be a confident unit on Sunday as they have played some brilliant cricket in the PSL. Peshawar, who have defeat Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars, are a well-balanced unit with some quality batsmen and bowlers in their squad and with their stars performing in the PSL, they have looked an even formidable unit.
With openers such as Mohammad Hafeez and Tamim Iqbal, they have the much-needed experience at the top of the order. They also have Kamran Akmal in the middle order. Skipper Shahid Afridi and Darren Sammy can swing the bat in the later stages of the innings to good effect.
In the bowling department, they are a huge threat with Shaun Tait, Junaid Khan and Wahab Riaz, who have picked some important wickets in the series to help the team emerge victorious. If this trio gets their line and length correct Quetta have their task cut out.
A huge battle seems to be on the cards between Quetta opener Luke Wright and the Peshawar bowlers. Wright has been in an amazing form for Quetta at the top of the order, scoring a 53-ball 86 and 37-ball 49 in the last two matches.
Quetta also have batsmen such as Ahmed Shehzad, Kevin Pietersen and Sarfaraz Ahmed to strengthen their line-up. With Pietersen playing for Quetta, he is going to be one of the key player for the team in the PSL.
Quetta have an incredible bowling line up as well, with Umar Gul and Anwar Ali as their strike bowlers.
The match promises to be an entertaining affair with both teams packed with stars, who are set to please the massive crowd, which is expected to be gathered for the T20 contest on Sunday.
