Zami's batting stands strongly loaded with Tamim Iqbal, Dwayne Smith, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Fletcher and Mohammad Hafeez, while Islamabad United has damaging batsman Alex Hales, Sam Billings, Luke Ronchi, Andre Russell and Misbah-ul-Haq.

Defeat against Sultans scattered the Peshawar Zalmi. Darren Sammy's Peshawar Zalmi will be looking to become the first side to defend their crown. Wahab Riaz, Chris Jordan and Hasan Ali are leading the pace attack of Peshawar Zalmi.

On Saturday, Islamabad United will play Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai in the first match of the day; in the second Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalandars will take the field.

Pacer Asif was awarded the player of the match award for his lethal bowling performance. Both the teams are loaded with quality players.

"As partners of the upcoming edition of PSL, we believe it is our duty to fully support this wonderful initiative as it ignites the love for the game amongst Pakistanis". Sammy's 29 off 11 balls helped them get past 150, but in the end, it was the early sluggishness that he and his team were left to bemoan. "I was the top scorer in last season's edition and I aim to retain that title this year as well". They are our guests and we will make sure that they have a wonderful trip. "In Karachi Kings, we look up to Shahid Afridi", he said.

Both Sangakkara and Malik once again came to the party with game-impacting contributions, repeating quite the same story they scripted in the first match.

Kings were in need of 45 runs on 45 deliveries at a point.

All in all, a feast of runs, and if the last PSL is any guide, a plethora of wickets awaits the fans of Pakistan's top T20 tournament. So let's hope to see PSL coming home next year and a much bigger and better season, full of cricket, thrill and excitement, this year.
