Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi Eliminator 1 Betting Tips 24/02/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The Eliminator 1 of the Pakistan Super League 2022 sees Islamabad Untied take on Peshawar Zalmi at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on Feb 24 (Thursday). The match is to begin at 8pm IST.

Teams Status

Peshawar Zalmi

Peshawar Zalmi are the form team of the tournament ahead of playoffs, thanks to their four consecutive wins.

Since losing to Multan Sultans twice in back-to-back games played in different cities at the start of this month, Peshawar have bounced back in style.

On Monday, in their last game of the round robin stage, their batters put together an average performance but their bowlers made up for it, restricting Lahore to 158 – exactly their own score. Wahab Riaz then was superb in the Super Over, limiting Lahore to just 5 runs – a total Shoaib Malik surpassed in just two balls.

Word is that Zalmi’s Usman Qadir and Ben Cutting have tested positive ahead of this fixture. If true, it could be a huge blow for Zalmi but will probably make the game more even considering Islamabad’s own depletion in numbers.

Islamabad United

Islamabad’s injury troubles are known to everyone. Several of their top overseas batters have left them while some of their local stars are out injured.

Zeeshan Zameer is certain to miss out on this game, while there are still question marks on Colin Munro, Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf’s fitness. One massive boost for Islamabad, however, is that their talismanic captain Shadab Khan is fit and ready to lead his team.

Shadab last played in the Valentine’s Day affair against Karachi and in his absence his side has lost all three matches.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Peshawar Zalmi to win @ 1.67

If both these teams were at their full strength, we’d have leaned toward Islamabad. But the fact remains that one is far more depleted than the other. Therefore, we’d side with Peshawar, who have been in great form heading into this game. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Shoaib Malik to score more than 23.5 runs @ 1.87

Shoaib Malik is arguably the most experienced T20 player in PSL right now alongside Mohammad Hafeez. He has seen many such tournaments, many playoffs and been in many eliminators. We think he’d put to use his far superior experience in this make or break game. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Barring a Shadab Khan or an Azam Khan solo act, we do not have much hope for Islamabad. Peshawar have a clear edge and they should make it count.
