Once again, it was contributions with the bat by their veterans Kumar Sangakkara and Shoaib Malik, capped off by a hat-trick by Junaid Khan, that ensured an easy win over Lahore Qalandars at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday. They've got practically every base covered.

Zalmi, on the other hand, boasts of Hasan Ali, Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal and Dwayne Bravo.

They have struck the right combination - a good mixture of experienced worldwide players with young domestic talent - in every facet of the game. Then they have Shahid Afridi too who will command respect from the opposition as well as huge crowds when he comes out to play. "The coaches are motivating him and we will all be looking to work on our mistakes for the next game". So get ready for the live action between Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United.

Faheem Ashraf pulled back things for Islamabad, scoring a fighting 54 not out off 30 balls. "I was the top scorer in last season's edition and I aim to retain that title this year as well". The Final will be held on March 25, 2018.

Notley, who had also scuttled talks to buy B.C. electricity, had been threatening further retaliatory action. And we will expect our federal partners to do the same. "To investors, it makes us look like a risky bet".

The Champions Trophy also saw the confirmation, if it was needed, of the enormous talent and courage of Hasan Ali, another player who had benefited greatly from exposure at the top level during Peshawar Zalmi's victorious 2017 campaign. Apart from the name, there is nothing new or untested about the players that are part of the Sultans. The former Windies captain, Sammy, will be leading the side.

Not far behind in terms of talent, and the man who played a pivotal role in Pakistan's fantastic victory in the Champions Trophy, is the left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman.

Kings were in need of 45 runs on 45 deliveries at a point. "We have to gear up for the next match and come up with a better combination to win".
