Zalmi to field, Sammy returns


DUBAI: Peshawar Zalmi face Islamabad United in today’s second clash at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium tonight.

Peshawar, currently languishing at fifth position on the points table, need to win to boost their rankings. Out of their six matches so far, they have won three and lost three.

Islamabad sit at third spot, with four wins and two losses to their name.

With uncertainty surrounding Darren Sammy’s injury, Peshawar have looked wobbly under Mohammad Hafeez’s captaincy. However, they may enjoy a psychological edge over Islamabad: the title defenders beat Islamabad by 34 runs during their clash earlier this season.
