As two-time Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 champions Islamabad United registered an emphatic eight-wicket win over Karachi Kings on June 14, the winning team eyes another victory against Peshawar Zalmi today (June 17).

Colin Munro and Iftikhar Ahmed smashed runs together to help Islamabad United beat Karachi Kings in the 22nd match of PSL 2021.

The duo thumped 17 boundaries and seven sixes altogether in United’s successful run-chase in 18.4 overs.

In a major blowout for Zalmis, emerging pacer Mohammad Amir Khan has been ruled out of the tournament due to a six wrist fracture.
