Lahore Qalandars (LAH) are gearing up to take on Peshawar Zalmi (PES) at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Saturday, March 2 in the 17th clash of PSL 2024. 

Led by Shaheen Afridi, Lahore Qalandars are facing a dismal season, having lost all their matches so far. Despite being two-time PSL champions, they are struggling to find their footing this season.

The absence of key players like Rashid Khan and Haris Rauf due to injury has significantly impacted their performance. Afridi, lacking strong support, faces an uphill battle to turn around the team's fortunes.

In contrast, Peshawar Zalmi sit comfortably in third place on the points table, with three wins in five matches. Babar Azam and Saim Ayub have been instrumental with stellar performances. However, wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Haris has underperformed, raising concerns about his contribution to the team's success.

Pindi Cricket Stadium: Pitch Report
The Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is renowned for its well-balanced pitch, catering to both batsmen and spin bowlers effectively throughout a match. 

At the start of the game, the new ball provides assistance to batsmen, particularly during the powerplay overs, allowing them to score freely. However, as the match progresses, the pitch tends to slow down, offering spinners favourable conditions to exploit with their variations and turn. Nonetheless, the dew factor might come into play which might help the chasing side.
