The second eliminator of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be played on Wednesday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. In the nail-biting first eliminator, Peshawar Zalmi defeated Quetta Gladiators in a last-ball thriller.
Peshawar Zalmi will now face Karachi Kings with the winner booking a place against Islamabad United in the final to be played in Karachi on March 25.
Zalmi goes into today’s match with skipper Darren Sammy still trying to recover from a leg injury, while Kings will be without all-rounder Shahid Afridi who is out due to a knee injury. The team will also not have the services of skipper Imad Wasim and will be led by Mohammad Amir.
The two teams played each other twice during the group stages of the tournament with Karachi Kings winning the first match by five wickets and the Peshawar Zalmi winning the second by 44 runs.
