Peshawar Zalmi preview
Peshawar Zalmi lost in the final last year, and they would want to turn things around this year. This batting of this side is excellent for the T20 format. Hazratullah Zazai proved his class last season as an opener, whereas Kamran Akmal and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are other crucial top-order players. Haider Ali and Shoaib Malik will handle the middle-order, whereas Sherfane Rutherford will play the role of a finisher. Usman Qadir is the leading spinner, but the pace department looks quite weak in this game.
Probable XI: Hazratullah Zazai, Kamran Akmal, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Sherfane Rutherford, Ben Cutting, Sameen Gul, Mohammad Amir Khan, Arshad Iqbal, Usman Qadir.
Multan Sultans will be the favourites to win this game.
