While the tournament moves to Pakistan, a lot of overseas players will not be available to take part in it. While Gladiators will have to play in the absence of Kevin Pietersen, Shane Watson and Jason Roy, Peshawar Zalmi will have their full squad for selection as none of their players is missing out. Zalmi is believed to field the same playing 11 while Sri Lankan all-rounder- Thisara Perera, Johnson Charles, and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will fill in the places of missing out players in Quetta Gladiators. Mahmudullah too will be joining the Gladiators squad. Stay connected for more updates.

Thisara Perera, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Mir Hamza, Umar Amin, Rilee Rossouw, Rahat Ali, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Khan, Anwar Ali, Mahmudullah, Tom Kohler-Cadmore/Johnson Charles/Ben Laughlin
Peshawar Zalmi has mainly relied on Kamran Akmal, Dwayne Smith and M Hafeez. While Kamran Akmal is the second top scorer in the tournament, the other two have consistently scored runs and will play a key role in tomorrow’s clash. The bowling has been efficiently handled by Wahab Riaz, Liam Dawson, Hasan Ali and Umaid Asif.
Quetta will face a big blow after in the absence of Shane Watson, Kevin Pietersen, and Jason Roy. All eyes will be on Rilee Rossouw and Sarfraz Ahmad now. Rahat Ali will have to lead with the ball while Perera’s addition will be beneficial.
With the third edition of Pakistan Super League moving into the final leg, the excitement begins to pour out. The first eliminator will be played be between Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators. Both the teams also played last edition’s final and Peshawar Zalmi moved on to become the champions. Something similar is expected to take place tomorrow when both the teams will face off each other in a must-win game. While Gladiators will be missing out some of its key players, with two consecutive wins Zalmi would be confident enough to take an edge over the Gladiators. Moreover, it is a 50-50 contest.
