Lahore: Peshawar Zalmi will face first-time finalist Multan Sultan in the sixth Pakistan Premier League (PSL) final at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
‘‘It was a difficult route we took to the final but it’s a great feeling,’’ Peshawar Zalmi skipper Wahab Riaz said after a surprisingly easy eight-wicket win over Islamabad United in the 2nd Qualifier on Tuesday.
On the other hand, Sultan Murtan defeated Islamabad United by 31 points in the first qualifier on Monday to make their maiden final. “I hope you have good luck in the final!” Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan captain who skipped PSL this year, wrote on Twitter.
Tomorrow, both teams will lock up the competition to win the PSL 2021 championship.
