Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars 20th T20 Results

Islamabad United won by 5 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

Islamabad United Vs Lahore Qalandars (IU VS LQ) preview is placed here. The final match of the group stage of the Pakistan Super League will be played between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United, in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on February 17th, Wednesday. The match will be start at 21:00 hrs local time.

Islamabad United to win​

Islamabad United have already booked a place in the final four, owing to their three wins in seven matches. In the Eliminator, they will either face Lahore Qalandars or Karachi Kings. If they move on to face Kings, then they have a distinct advantage of defeating them twice.

The two sides last met Sharjah Cricket Stadium, where Kings were made to bat first and they set a low target of 128 runs. Needless to mention, Islamabad United achieved this by the 19th over and sealed their place in the stage.

However, now considering that Shane Watson will not be available to play any more matches, it will be quite interesting to see who Wasim Akram brings in the playing XI. Brad Haddin and Andre Russell appear to be good substitutes.

As for Lahore Qalandars, this is a must win match for them. They are sitting at the bottom place with four points, and a win here will give them a good chance to see through to final four. However, their bowling attack is something which they need to be concerned about.

Their previous match was against Quetta Gladiators, where despite setting a target of 201 runs, they lost the match by two wickets. Moreover, it was this second time that they lost despite having 150+ runs on the board, with the first time being against none other than Islamabad United.

Islamabad United have nothing to lose here, which gives them a good chance to experiment with the playing XI. On the other hand, we can expect Lahore Qalandars to bring their A-game into this fixture. This is surely going to be a exciting match to see.
