Who will win? – Islamabad United

ISL vs LAH Preview:

Islamabad United: Islamabad United have managed to overcome three successive defeats by securing victories in two of their last three matches. Their only non-winning result was a washout shared with the Quetta Gladiators. With hopes still alive for a spot in the PSL playoffs, another win in this fixture would significantly boost their ambitions.

Agha Salman and Shadab Khan continue to lead Islamabad’s batting charts this season. Salman has amassed 225 runs in six innings, while Khan follows closely with 183 runs in six outings. Khan enters this match fresh off a match-winning knock of 80 runs and a haul of three wickets for 41 runs against Peshawar Zalmi.

Khan also tops the wicket-taking charts for Islamabad this season, having claimed nine scalps in six innings. Renowned for his leg-spin prowess, Khan forms a formidable partnership with United’s fast bowler Naseem Shah, who has notched up eight wickets in six matches. The duo is expected to play a crucial role in the upcoming match.

Lahore Qalandars: In contrast, Lahore Qalandars are yet to register a win in this PSL season, having suffered six defeats and shared one washout. Their chances of progressing to the next stage are slim, but mathematically possible if they start winning matches promptly.

Rassie van der Dussen has been a standout performer with the bat for Lahore, accumulating 300 runs in six innings, including a memorable century against Zalmi. The overseas recruit has received valuable support from local talent Sahibzada Farhan.

Despite his role as a bowling captain, Shaheen Afridi’s performance with the ball remains impressive. Afridi has taken nine wickets in six matches in this year’s Pakistan Super League, establishing himself as one of the tournament’s premier left-arm fast bowlers.

ISL vs LAH Possible Playing XI:

Islamabad United(ISL): Shadab Khan (c), Colin Munro, Alex Hales, Agha Salman, Azam Khan (wk), Jordan Cox, Imad Wasim, Faheem Ashraf, Hunain Shah, Rumman Raees, Naseem Shah.

ISL vs LAH Toss Prediction:

In the previous PSL fixture held at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Peshawar Zalmi won the toss, elected to bowl first, and ultimately suffered a defeat.

Considering this recent statistic, the team winning the toss in the upcoming match may opt to bat first instead, potentially learning from the outcome of the previous encounter.

ISL vs LAH Pitch Report:

The Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium has witnessed high-scoring encounters in the past, with Islamabad posting a formidable total of 196 when they faced Zalmi earlier in the tournament. This suggests that a score of 170 or more in the first innings can be deemed competitive at this venue.

Both teams are expected to include at least two specialist slow bowlers in their lineups, indicating a strategy to exploit the conditions favoring spin.

Fortunately, there is no forecast of wet weather in Rawalpindi on matchday, ensuring the likelihood of a full fixture amid the typically hot and humid conditions characteristic of the region.
