Islamabad united collapsed against Peshawar Zalmi by using 34 runs however rallied to defeat Multan sultans by way of 5 wickets of their subsequent match.

Presently, Islamabad united is at 5th area within the scores whilst Quetta gladiators are on the 1/3 spot. Islamabad United is a team which lifted the cup in the inaugural edition. Misbah and his men played some brilliant cricket in the later half. There is no doubt that no one was expecting them to win. They had an average team but them after they made into the play offs they started playing good solid cricket. Peshawar Zalmi was the favorite team in the opening edition but they could not make it into the finals. The second favorites Quetta Gladiators made into the final with Islamabad United and lost to the men in red. Misbah lifted the cup and glory. But since then the Islamabad United has not fired.

In the second edition they were knocked out in the playoffs and here in the third edition so far they are looking an average side. Misbah has not played the last two games and in his absence Rumman Raees has taken the role of the skipper of this team. Peshawar has done well but they too are lacking the same spirit and performance in the ground. They have players like Kamran Akmal, Mohammad Hafeez and Chris Jordan but the main attraction in this team in the young leg spinner Ibtesam Shaikh. The leggy is really making a huge name for himself as he is bowling really well. He takes the former Indian leg spinner Anil Kumble as his role model in cricket. Today it is going to be a tough fight between the two side and by the looks of the two teams Peshawar Zalmi is the favorite one at this very moment.
