The pitch of Abu Dhabi has equally been benefitting the bowlers and batsmen. Let it be the chasing team or the batting first team, either of them has gained an advantage in case of playing the best.
The weather is expected to be extremely hot. At the time of initiation at 8:00 PM Local, the temperature will be across 35 degrees celsius with winds blowing around 14-17 km/h. Humidity will be 67-70%.
Zalmi and Sultans, both did not have an appealing season when it comes to the league stage. But the terminal stages for Sultans became inspiring as they became the second team to qualify for the playoffs.
It seems like they were prepared to play their maiden final as Rizwan and co beat Islamabad United in the Qualifier round to get qualified for the final straightaway. Then, they waited for their opponent not knowing it could be certainly Zalmi with aggressive approaches.
Reaching to the playoffs being placed third on the points table, Zalmi faced Karachi Kings in the Eliminator 1. They sent the red-blue team home following United’s defeat in the Eliminator 2 to be in the final.
Both Zalmi and Sultans are like parallel forces from each end. Where we cannot doubt Rizwan’s leadership, Zalmi’s dynamic appearance witnessed in the playoffs is not worth denying.
