Salman Irshad has 12 wickets this season, while Wahab Riaz and Usman Qadir have nine and eight wickets, respectively. Sherfane Rutherford and Liam Livingstone have returned home.
Top players to bet on- Hussain Talat, Mohammad Haris, Ben Cutting.
Islamabad United has won four of their ten games, but they are dealing with many injuries. They got off to a great start in the event, but they lost their way halfway through. Paul Stirling is on national duty, but Colin Munro and Shadab Khan also missed a few games.
For the playoffs, Alex Hales has returned to Pakistan. Hasan Ali will also miss the playoffs. Shadab Khan, on the other hand, is expected to return for this game. For this team, Azam Khan has played some excellent middle-order cricket. On paper, the side’s bowling appears to be a little lacking, but the batting seems to be adequate. Will Jacks has come on as a late substitute for the team.
Top players to bet on – Azam Khan, Alex Hales, Hasan Ali.
Hussain Talat, Haider Ali, Ben Cutting, Wahab Riaz, Usman Qadir, Salman Irshad, Mohammad Umar, Hazratullah Zazai, Mohammad Haris, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik.

Dream 11 Prediction
M. de Lange
The Peshawar Zalmi are one of the best teams in the league and have played some excellent cricket so far. Meanwhile, Islamabad United is a fantastic team but has blown hot and cold at times. In this game, the Zalmi are the slight favourites to win.
