Peshawar Zalmi had completed at the highest point of the focuses table in the gathering stage, yet passed up a great opportunity for a billet in the last.
Then again, Lahore Qalandars (LQ) and Karachi Kings (KK) were mulling at simply 2 wins from 8 coordinates each. This is particularly astounding given that any semblance of Zafar Gohar, Ehsan Adil, Kevon Cooper, and Ajantha Mendis of LQ and Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Aamer, Usamia Mir, Sohail Khan, and Imad Wasim of KK were all among the wickets.
In like manner, LQ’s Umar Akmal was the main run-scorer of PSL 2016, while Cameron Delport, Azhar Ali, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Gayle, and Mohammad Rizwan contributed with the bat. For KK Bopara was outstanding with the bat, missing the mark regarding Akmal’s run count, while Shoaib Malik and Lendl Simmons too did sensibly well.

The last is hard to call, yet QG have all the force going into the last. It has been a children’s story travel for them, yet they will be careful about a solid IU side that have some accomplished names in the line-up. The last ought to be an arresting challenge.
