The opening match of HBL Pakistan Super League 2017 has been scheduled to play between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi on 9th February at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, UAE. Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi live cricket will begin at 20:00 local time, 16:00 GMT, 21:30 IST and 21:00 Pakistan timings.
Fresh season of PSLT20 is set to begin with a big match between two super hit sides Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United on Thursday 9th February. Shahid Afridi is not leading Zalmis this year and he is having less responsibilities. So he can be dangerous and play aggressive cricket without any burden. It will be great if skipper Dareen Sammy can promote Afridi at the top order and maybe at the opening slot with Hafeez or Dilshan.
It is going to be an important championship for some players like Kamran Akmal, Junaid Khan, Hasan Ali, Haris Sohail, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Irfan, Asif Ali, Saeed Ajmal and Amad Butt. These players will be key in the match too as both teams will be depending on these cricketers if they want to win.
Islamabad United is also having a good side. Shane Watson, Misbah Ul Haq, Sharjeel Khan, Sam Billings, Brad Haddin are the key batsmen in the Islamabad side. It will be crucial to check out how these players perform.
Misbah-Ul-Haq (Captain), Shane Watson, Steven Finn, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Samuel Badree, Mohammad Sami, Khalid Latif, Brad Haddin, Rumman Raees, Imran Khalid, Asif Ali, Sam Billings, Saeed Ajmal, Amad Butt, Hussain Talat, Shadab Khan, Zohaib Khan, Dwayne Smith.
