Not a do or die situation in this game for either teams BUT: A win guarantees no. 1 spot for Sultans on the points table / A confirmed berth in the playoffs for Zalmi. Sultans would most likely give chances to their bench and try out some experiments in this game. Zalmi's last game against LQ was a forgettable one for them where they struggled in the top order and then failed to defend a good total..... but their previous encounter with Sultans was also a forgettable one for them where they could only score 123 a.o when Sohail Tanvir wrecked them taking 4/13. Zalmi is struggling to get the right opening combination due to Banton's poor form. Kamran Akmal is also struggling to score big after getting little starts. Should they bring in Umar Amin or try Imam ul Haq again? Even the bowlers have struggle to contain the batsmen. Should they bring in Liam Dawson and Amir Khan again to have a decent 4th and 5th bowling option?
