Zalmi Win Toss: Opt To Bat First Against Kings

Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and elected to bat first against Karachi Kings at the Dubai International Stadium tonight.
Karachi Kings, who had a lacklustre campaign in the previous two editions of the Pakistan Super League, went for a new look this season and it worked: they defeated Quetta Gladiators on Friday to claim a 19-run victory.
Captained by Imad Wasim, the team benefitted from Colin Ingram who hit a blistering 41 off 21 balls, and from the skipper’s economical bowling against Quetta.
Peshawar Zalmi, who lost their opening match to debutants Multan Sultan, made a comeback driven by the brilliant pacer Umaid Asif, who tore through Islamabad United’s top order to help his side to a 34-run victory.
