IU vs PZ Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for PSL 2021 Eliminator 2.

The second eliminator of the ongoing sixth season of the Pakistan Super League will be played between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi tonight.

In what will be the second knockout match of PSL 2021, both teams will have to register a victory to move towards the final of the tournament against Multan Sultans.

Table-toppers in the league stage, United’s winning streak was brought to a halt last night by Sultans after they failed to chase a 181-run target at the same venue.

Better placed than Karachi Kings on the points table, Peshawar sealed a 176-run chase in the last over on the back of opening batsman Hazratullah Zazai scoring his second PSL 2021 half-century on Monday.
