Peshawar Zalmi will face Lahore Qalandars in the ninth match of the PSL 2022 on Wednesday, 2 February. The match, scheduled at Karachi’s National Stadium, will start at 7:30 pm PST.
Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars will face off against each other in a high-octane clash at the National Stadium Karachi. Both the teams will be determined to get a win and continue their ascension on the PSL 2022 points table. Both Peshawar and Lahore have won one and lost one match in PSL 7 so far and a win for either team will take them to the second spot on the points table. Currently, Zalmi are at the fifth spot while Qalandars are one position ahead of them at fourth.
Lahore lost their first match in the competition against Multan Sultans before making an amazing comeback in their second match against arch-rivals Karachi Kings. Fakhar Zaman was the man of the match for Qalandars as he smashed a marvelous century, first in this season’s PSL. Solid contributions from their world-class bowling unit provided them with a much-needed confidence boost and Lahore look set to take the league by storm.
Zalmi, on the other hand, have looked a shadow of their former selves. They were outplayed by Islamabad United in their previous encounter but the arrival of their international superstars will offer them a much-needed lift as they look to qualify for their seventh consecutive PSL play-offs. Afghanistan opener, Hazratullah Zazai is fit again and available for selection for the upcoming encounter while the likes of Saqib Mahmood and Lia Livingstone will join the squad in the next few days.
Peshawar are expected to make a few changes to their squad with Hazratullah Zazai, Arshad Iqbal, and Mohammad Umar making their way into the squad at the expense of Yasir Khan, Sohail Khan, and Pat Brown.
Lahore are likely to name an unchanged XI.
