Zalmi had ousted Karachi Kings from the second eliminator on their way to the final previous year and have also beaten them in the reverse match after losing the first game.

Peshawar Zalmi is going up against Karachi Kings in a decider match to see which team will cement its place in the final against Islamabad United.

The England all rounder was looking at the score of 175-180 but two wickets in the 18th over, in which Rahat Ali also took two wickets that of Zalmi skipper Sammy and Dawson and they fell over 20 runs short of their internded target after being put into bat. He uprooted the stumps of the last-match centurion Kamran Akmal with a swinging delivery to give Zalmi first jolt. Wasim ran backwards from mid off to take a catch of Sohail Khan.

Many global cricketers have had their doubts about visiting the country but this year, a lot of cricketers who have played the PSL have made a decision to visit Pakistan for the final stages. Opener Tamim Iqbal smashed two fours, taking Peshawar to 8-0 off the first four balls of the match before rain stopped play and forced the teams off the field. He was sent back by Mahmudullah, when the latter rattled his stumps with a yorker. Anwar played 14 ball to gather 28 runs smashing 1 four and 3 huge sixes.

Answering to a question, he said those franchises which are offering extra amount to visit Pakistan for playing cricket are not setting a good trend and the foreign players should be paid according to their contract, no matter where they will be playing.

They needed someone to play a big inning. Last five batsmen could manage to add just 38 runs as Zalmi were restricted to 157 in their 20 overs.

Dawson's innings was studded with four boundaries and four sixes.

Quetta did not had the likes of Kevin Pieterson, Shane Watson and Ben Laughlin who did not play in Pakistan regarding security.

Perera, Mahmudullah and Kohler-Cadmore into their line-ups.
