Peshawar Zalmi will square off with Islamabad United in the 5th match of the tournament. With stellar batting heroics from Shoaib Malik and Hussain Talat, Peshawar Zalmi registered a 5-wicket win over Quetta Gladiators on Friday. They showed some real character in the second half of the match despite conceding plenty of runs in the first half. They look to keep the same momentum going for the rest of the tournament.

Islamabad United, on the other hand, are playing their first match of the tournament. They had lost to Peshawar Zalmi in the Eliminator last year by 8 wickets. They are the most successful side in the history of the PSL winning the tournament twice. Alex Hales and Rahmanullah Gurbaz are likely to open for them in this match.
