Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions & Betting Tips: PSL 2020 1st Semi-Final - Multan Sultans v Peshawar Zalmi
The 1st Semi-Final of the Pakistan Super League 2020 will be played between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Both teams have been hit due to the Novel coronavirus outbreak with them losing a couple of crucial players. While Multan Sultans will be without Rilee Rossouw and James Vince in the knockouts, Peshawar Zalmi's Lewis Gregory and Liam Livingstone have gone back home.
While Multan Sultans ensured semi-final qualification by dint of climbing to the top of the points table well in advance, Peshawar Zalmi also sneaked through with just four wins at the fourth spot.
The two teams met recently in one of the last league games of the tournament where Sultans were able to eke out a victory by just 3 runs. Zeeshan Ashraf was the top scorer for Multan Sultans in that game with Khushdil Shah also contributed with a nice cameo.
Sohail Tanvir and Ali Shafiq then shared five wickets between them.
For Peshawar, Rahat Ali was the most impressive bowler and ended with figures of 4-24-3. With the bat, Imam-ul-Haq, Umar Amin and Shoaib Malik contributed well.
While this was the last game for Peshawar Zalmi, Multan Sultans played one more game in the league stage against Lahore Qalandars which they lost by 9 wickets.
