Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Betting Tips 17/02/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 24th match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 sees Islamabad United take on Peshawar Zalmi at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on Feb 17 (Thursday). The match is to begin at 8pm IST.

Teams Status

Islamabad United

Islamabad have a bit of a crisis on their hands now. Their star opener Alex Hales has suspiciously withdrawn from the remainder of the tournament citing “personal reasons” while three of their players have picked up injuries.

Star allrounder and captain Shadab Khan is nursing a groin injury, while Zeeshan Zameer and Muhammad Akhlaq also have knocks and bruises of their own. Even Colin Munro is not a 100 per cent fit. With Shadab out, Asif Ali will lead Islamabad in this game.

Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz is also expected to leave due to his international commitments, with England’s Will Jacks set to replace him.

Consistency has been a problem for Islamabad this season. They’ve yet to win consecutive games, with their mode of operation being to alternate between wins and losses. They defeated Karachi in their last game, which means this game presents them with another chance to shackle themselves free of that unwanted trend.

Peshawar Zalmi

After dropping two straight matches to Multan Sultans in different cities, Peshawar Zalmi have bounced back and put together consecutive wins – one over Karachi Kings and the other against Quetta Gladiators.

The win over Karachi was by a bigger margin but less impressive as Karachi are the worst team in the league right now. But the defeat of Quetta deserves a mention as the Gladiators are one of the contenders now.

Two men who stood out were Hussain Talat — whose 33-ball 51 and key wicket of Quetta captain Sarfaraz Ahmed were notable contributions — and Usman Qadir, who took three wickets and all of recognized batters.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Peshawar Zalmi to win @ 2.12

Islamabad are depleted at this moment but still available for shorter odds due to their reputation perhaps. Compare them pound for pound and right now Peshawar might just have the edge. With no Shadab and no Hales and no several others, we think Islamabad could be in trouble here. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Azam Khan total runs over 16.5 @ 1.87

With Hales gone and Shadab out, there is at least one opportunity on offer up the batting order. Azam Khan is likely going to get promoted. If that happens, we expect him to find some runs. If you feel adventurous you can take a better paying and bigger bet on Azam but we’re only going to back him to cover the spread of 16.5 runs. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


United beat Zalmi when they met late last month in their earlier fixture. It’s time for Peshawar to settle scores.
