WEB DESK: After seventeenth matches of Pakistan Super League (PSL) three teams still fighting for the third and fourth position to qualify for the play-offs.

Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators

Both teams have already qualified for the play-offs with 10 points each and one match is still left for them. Both teams will play the first qualifying final on February 19.

Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad

Both Karachi Kings and Islamabad United have played 7 matches each and they are on 3rd and 4th position with 6 and 4 points respectively. Whereas, Lahore Qalandars have played 6 matches and they have still two matches to go through but they have 4 points like Karachi Kings.

The results in coming matches might be in favour of teams but they cannot neglect the net run rate (NRR) scenario. The NRR will decide the future if all three teams end up with 6 points each.

February 16: Tonight in the 18th match of PSL, Lahore Qalandars will take on Quetta Gladiators at Dubai Cricket Stadium. Quetta do not have to worry about the results but it is a battle of survival for Lahore Qalandars.

On February 17: Karachi will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the 19th match tomorrow and it both. This match might be the last match for Karachi Kings.

The most-awaited and the decider match between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars will also be played tomorrow night. This match will decide the future of Karachi Kings, Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars. Among them, one team will be disqualified.

No matter which two teams will progress but PSL and cricket fans will love the competition and excitement in last three matches of the league stage.
