PES vs ISL T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Eliminator PSL 2024

With Multan Sultans awaiting the winner in Monday evening’s final, Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United face off in the Eliminator 2 on Saturday evening at the National Stadium, Karachi. Peshawar Zalmi lost to Multan Sultans in the Qualifier on Thursday with Islamabad beating Quetta Gladiators in the Eliminator 1 on Friday. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 21:00 local time on March 16th.

After ending the group stage and going into the knockout stage in strong form, Peshawar Zalmi were well beaten by Multan Sultans in the Qualifier. However, they have had a strong tournament and they will fancy their chances of beating Islamabad United.

Islamabad United continued their recent excellent form with a 39 run victory over Quetta Gladiators in Friday’s knockout game. They will need to match that performance against a very strong and also in-form Peshawar Zalmi if they are to make the final.

With Naveen-ul-Haq leaving the tournament to prepare for the Afghanistan versus Ireland T20I series, Peshawar Zalmi were forced into one change ahead of their clash with Multan Sultans.

PES Key Players

  • Babar Azam- the skipper has been the standout batter across all sides in this PSL 2024 and comes into this match with 544 runs at an average of 60.44 in the tournament.
  • Saim Ayub- the 21 year old left-handed opener has had a slight dip with the bat over recent games but has had another impressive competition with both bat and ball.
  • Aamer Jamal- the all-rounder is targeting a fifth successive game of picking up at least one wicket and dismissed Mohammad Rizwan in the Qualifier.
  • Mehran Mumtaz- the young left-arm spinner dismissed Yasir Khan against Multan Sultans in the last match and gets plenty of turn on his deliveries.

ISL Team News

After injuring himself in the successful chase against Multan Sultans in Match 27, Colin Munro was ruled out of the Eliminator 1 and few expect him to be fit in time for this game only 24 hours later. Martin Guptill and Obed McCoy came into the side on Friday and we expect them both to play again in this match.

ISL Key Players

  • Martin Guptill- the New Zealander has been a dominant force in T20 cricket over the last 15 years and he is still a talent in 2024 as shown with his five fours and one six in the Eliminator 1.
  • Agha Salman- the 30 year old top order batter comes into this match only five runs from 300 runs in the tournament after hitting 31 in the last game.
  • Imad Wasim- the spinner took the Player of the Match Award against Quetta Gladiators after opening the bowling and picking up a wicket in the first, third and fifth overs.
  • Naseem Shah- the young right-arm fast bowler got the big wicket of Jason Roy with his second delivery in the Eliminator 1 before returning to dismiss Omair Yousuf in the 18th over.
