A brilliant batting performance from David Miller and Kamran Akmal was enough for Peshawar Zalmi to knock Quetta Gladiators out of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.

In Abu Dhabi on Saturday, Gladiators—in a must-win match—won the toss and elected to bowl first.

That decision initially proved a correct one as Zalmi lost Haider Ali and Shoaib Malik for a score of just 10.

However, a third-wicket partnership of more than 120 runs between Miller and Kamran helped Peshawar in posting a more than competitive total of 197 for the loss of five wickets in their allotted 20 overs.

South Africa’s middle-order batsman finished the innings with the top score of 73 off 46 balls with the help of six fours and four sixes whereas veteran wicketkeeper-batsman scored a valuable 59 off 37.

In reply, Gladiators never really got going and managed to score just 136 for the loss of nine wickets in their allotted 20 overs, falling 61 runs short of the opposition’s total.

Saim Ayub (35 off 31 balls) and captain Sarfaraz Ahmed (36 off 28) managed to put some sort of resistance.

For Zalmi, pacer Mohammad Irfan was the most successful bowler as he claimed three wickets whereas Wahab Riaz and Umaid Asif claimed two wickets each.

So we are all set to start the match.

Quetta Gladiators have made a couple of changes in their playing XI.

Here is the playing XI of Peshawar Zalmi:

A significant update for Gladiators fans as all-rounder Andre Russell has been ruled out of tonight’s fixture. He was hit by a ball in yesterday’s match while batting and was substituted by Naseem Shah.

TOSS: The news from the centre is that Sarfaraz Ahmed has won the toss and Quetta are going to bowl first.

Sarfaraz Ahmed-led unit are now in a do-or-die situation as they need to win all of their remaining four matches in order to have any hopes of cementing a spot in the playoffs this season.

It is Peshawar Zalmi who will go up against Quetta Gladiators.
