The runners-up of PSL 2018, Peshawar Zalmi will enter into the field for the first time in the new edition on Friday. In the second game of the doubleheader on the weekend, they will be taking on the Quetta Gladiators. These are still early days in the tournament and both the teams will have a lot to work upon. Since the look of the teams has changed, figuring out the right combinations is important.

It is the teams which find out their best eleven the earliest that succeed in the first half of the league stages. This gives them an edge going into the closing phases as they’d have already struck the right chord early on. Both these teams will be looking to do exactly this and add two important points to the tally.
