Peshawar Zalmi have taken the tough route to the final, and their captain now wants the players to just soak in the feeling of playing the big game

Wahab Riaz, captain of the Peshawar Zalmi, feels that after having soaked up all the pressure possible over the past 15 days to get to the PSL 2021 final, against the Multan Sultans on Thursday in Abu Dhabi, the team is now quite relaxed for that title clash.
“It’s an honour to play the final, as we have been the most consistent team, having played three finals and played all the playoffs,” Riaz said ahead of the final. “My journey [with the Zalmi] started in 2016, and the team is like a family; the sort of confidence we get here and the way we are treated is all reflected in our performances. We have come this far playing good cricket. Though we lost a couple of matches, it’s a part of the game; what matters is where and how you pick up the momentum. So beating Karachi [Kings] and Islamabad [United] was the best time to lift ourselves.
