Peshawar Zalmi preview
Peshawar Zalmi lost in the final last year, and they won their first game of this season. This batting from this side is excellent for the T20 format. Tom Kohler-Cadmore has been a constant T20 performer, but the way Yasir Khan batted was terrific. Haider Ali and Shoaib Malik will handle the middle-order, whereas Hussain Talat and Sherfane Rutherford will play the role of finishers. Usman Qadir is the leading spinner, but the pace department looks quite weak in this game.
Probable XI: Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Yasir Khan, Haider Ali, Shoaib Malik, Hussain Talat, Sherfane Rutherford, Ben Cutting, Sameen Gul, Pat Brown, Sohail Khan, Usman Qadir.

Alex Hales is coming on the back of a brilliant BBL 11, whereas Raheem Stirling and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are also terrific T20 players. Asif Ali proved his class in the T20 World Cup, whereas the addition of Azam Khan is a bonus. Shadab Khan will take care of spin duties, whereas there are pacers like Hasan Ali, Merchant de Lange, Faheem Ashraf, and Mohammad Wasim Jr in the team.
