Hazratullah Zazai has not put a foot wrong ever since he has been given an opportunity to play in this tournament.
This year’s Pakistan Super League has seen the inspiring story of two teams coming from far behind to make it to the final of this tournament. Multan Sultans made it to the eliminator based on run rate, but were able to edge past Islamabad United, who had won five successive matches coming into the playoffs. This will be Multan’s first final.
Peshawar Zalmi, on other hand, had to beat two teams in the playoffs to qualify for the final and they did that in some style. They strategically chased down the total set by Islamabad in Eliminator 2. The confident eight-wicket win will surely boost their confidence ahead of the final match.
