LAHORE – Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings will be training at the ICC Academy, Dubai Sports City today ahead of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 ‘semi-final’ in Dubai on Friday (March 3).

The match will start at 09:00 PM Pakistan time, which corresponds to 08:30 PM Indian time, 05:00 GMT and 08:00 PM according to UAE time.

Where to watch: All matches will air on PTV Sports, Ten Sports and Geo sports. Similarly, cricket enthusiasts of the world can catch live action on MENA – OSN, Africa – Startimes, Bangladesh – Gazi TV, UK – A plus, channel 44, Prime TV, Geo TV, Caribbean – Flow TV, USA – A Plus, Afghanistan – Moby.

The winner of this game will be through to the final of the tournament, scheduled to be held at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on March 5.

Zalmi regroup after an agonising one-run loss against Quetta Gladiators who secured a direct berth in the final of the 2017 PSL edition set to be played in Pakistan, said a press release issued
here on Thursday.

Chasing a target of 201, Peshawar produced a monumental batting performance before imploding in the final over in which they needed seven runs for a historic win in the first playoff on Tuesday.

However, they live to fight another day against Kings who sent defending champions Islamabad United packing from the tournament with a 44-run win as they defended what looked like a below par 126 run first innings score in the second playoff on Wednesday.

Kings will now take on Zalmi in the third and final playoff on Friday as the action returns to the Dubai International Stadium with the winner facing Quetta Gladiators in the grand final of the HBL PSL set to be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Sunday.
