ISL vs PES, Match 29 : Top Five Picks

  1. Colin Munro (ISL): New Zealand's Colin Munro has struck the second-most runs for Islamabad United so far in PSL 8. The left-handed batter would be looking to get some more runs under his belt before the Playoffs.
  2. Alex Hales (ISL): England's destructive opener Alex Hales is yet to live up to the expectations in this edition of PSL. The right-handed batter is averaging only 16.25 in 4 innings with the best score of 34. He would hope to hit form before the knockout stage begins.
  3. Babar Azam (PES): There is no stopping Peshawar Zalmi's skipper Babar Azam in the last few matches. He scored 50, 115 and 73 in his last outings and is now the second-highest run-getter after Mohammad Rizwan in this PSL.
  4. Tom Kohler-Cadmore (PES): England's Tom Kohler-Cadmore has hit the third-most runs in this competition. The right-handed batter is averaging 42.42 in 9 innings with three fifties and is a worthy pick for this must-win clash for the Zalmi.
  5. Mohammad Haris (PES): Exciting young talent Mohammad Haris slammed 35 off just 11 with one four and four maximums in the last game against Multan Sultans. He has yet to hit a half-century in this campaign and may do it in this crucial fixture.
