Another beautiful day in Karachi with no rain interruptions and the temperatures are expected to be around 29 to 29 degrees. Humidity is again going to be on the higher side during the match in a range of 40 to 48%.
The majority of the pitches in Karachi have been used up so we expect spinners to play a crucial role in this game and luckily both teams have got some very quality spinners available in their ranks. The average 1st innings score is around 170 with pacers getting a bit of swing and seam movement early on in the powerplay.
PZ vs IU Match 12 Probable Playing XIs
Team Peshawar Zalmi have an advantage in the top order as all of them look to be in great touch and we have seen them utilizing the powerplay overs quite brilliantly so far and with Islamabad United average looking pace bowling attack it would be difficult to stop Zalmi scoring the big runs.
Shadab Khan & Rumman Raees holds the key for Islamabad in the bowling department to make sure PZ doesn’t score close to 200 runs if they bat 1st. Unfortunately, for IU that their opener Paul Stirling has not looked the best so far like we used to see him in earlier editions of the Pakistan Super League.

PZ vs IU Match Prediction
Looking at the current form and squad strength, experienced bookmakers have favored Peshawar to win this match against Islamabad. PZ has a winning probability of around 55% because they are not dependent on a single player but the whole team is performing quite well.
James Neesham who won PZ in the last game is expected to play a crucial role yet again along with Usman Qadir as the ball might grip and spin in the middle overs.
