On Thursday, Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United will cross swords against each other in the twelfth game of the ongoing Pakistan Super League. The match is scheduled at the National Bank Cricket Arena in Karachi. 

Team Preview: Peshawar Zalmi

Peshawar Zalmi have had a decent PSL campaign, placed third with two wins in three matches. 

They had a terrific start to the tournament, sealing a close two-run win against Karachi Kings in the second match of the league. 

However, they failed to sustain their winning run, succumbing to a crushing 56-run defeat to Multan Sultans in the next fixture. 

But riding on Rovman Powell and Jimmy Neesham's magnificent cameo, they steamrolled Quetta Gladiators by four wickets in the third game. 

So, moving on to this game, Babar Azam and co would like to secure their third win of the season. 

Team Preview: Islamabad United

On the other hand, Islamabad United had a poor start to their PSL 2023 campaign, incurring a four-wicket defeat to Karachi Kings in their first encounter. 

However, they made a remarkable comeback, defeating Multan Sultans by 52 runs in their subsequent fixture. 

While Colin Munro and Rassie van der Dussen have starred with the bat, Rumman Raees and Tom Curran have spearheaded their bowling attack to perfection. 

So, Shadab Khan and co will like to sustain their winning momentum when they enter the field on Thursday.

Pitch Report: The surface in Karachi traditionally remains flat with ample assistance for batters. However, it also helps the spinners to a decent extent. Additionally, as teams batting first have won four out of six matches here, the toss-winner will likely opt to bat first.
