LAHORE: Islamabad United skipper Shadab Khan is likely to play for United against Peshawar Zalmi in the first eliminator of the ongoing seventh edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

According to sources, Shadab has recovered and will be available for the two-time champions for the first eliminator of the PSL.

United were without Shadab Khan in the last two matches of the league stage against Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans, which his team lost.

The 23-year-old had sustained a groin injury in the game against Karachi Kings on February 14.

Meanwhile, sources said that Hasan Ali's MRI report is also clear; however, he along with Faheem Ashraf will undergo a fitness test before the match. Their availability for selection will depend on the fitness test.

Sources further added that Alex Hales, who returned to the PSL after withdrawal from the tournament, will be available for selection tonight.

Wills Jack — replacement for Rahmanullah Gurbaz — will also be available for selection against Peshawar Zalmi.

Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United, who finished at the third and fourth spot on the points table, respectively, will be up against each other in eliminator 1 at the Gaddafi Stadium tonight.

If Islamabad loses the match against Zalmi today, they will be out of the tournament; however, if they defeat Yellow Storm, they will then take on the losing side from the Qualifier — Lahore Qalandars.
