Lahore Qalandars v Islamabad United Betting Predictions

Time for today’s cricket match prediction tips for the Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United game based on our knowledge and insight.

The two sides have had a pretty similar start to their PSL campaign back when the tournament was hosted in Pakistan. With three wins in four matches, not a lot separates the two teams in the points table.

I’m backing a win for Lahore Qalandars owing to their overall form and a slightly superior squad.

Lahore Qalandars Team News

Lahore Qalandars have had a pretty solid start to their PSL campaign as they look to win their first trophy in the tournament.

There have been a couple of players responsible for this brilliant run – Fakhar Zaman has scored two half-centuries in his four appearances while Shaheen Afridi has taken 9 wickets in the same number of matches.

Mohammad Hafeez was also in a decent form when the PSL was in play; however, he was a bit underwhelming in Zimbabwe and South Africa series for Pakistan.

Plus, the presence of Rashid Khan in the team only makes them far more dangerous as the Afghan spinner is considered one of the best bowlers in the T20 format.

All in all, the Qalandars have a few brilliant players in their team who can make life difficult for the opposition. It is just a matter of how quickly they acclimatize to the conditions in the UAE.

Likely XI: Zaman, Akhtar, Hafeez, Faulkner, Hussain, Rashid Khan, Afridi, Rauf, Daniyal, Mirza, Ashraf

Islamabad United Team News

Two-time Pakistan Super League champions Islamabad United have arrived in Abu Dhabi without the bulk of their international contingent.

Owing to ongoing international games, scheduling difficulties, and travel restrictions, the likes of Alex Hales, Lewis Gregory, and Reece Topley won’t be joining the side this time around.

However, it may not necessarily be a problem for ISLU seeing that they do have several talented players in their ranks in the form of Usman Khawaja, Rohail Nazir, Iftikar Ahmed, Hussain Talat, among others.

It has been a team effort from Islamabad United rather than relying on the individual brilliance of a few skilled players. This may be attributed to Johan Botha’s brilliant coaching, shaped by his previous similar experiences in the league.

In batting and bowling, the boys have come together to put up a good fight and pick up the three wins in their opening four matches.

Likely XI: Khawaja, Nazir, Khan, Ali, Talat, Ahmed, Ashraf, Wasim, Ali, Musa, Zameer

Venue & conditions

The game will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi – a venue known for hosting several T20 matches and tournaments over the last couple of seasons, including the Indian Premier League.

This being a day-night match, dew may play a part right from the beginning and will likely make things difficult for the bowling side in the second innings. Interestingly, so far this campaign, both sides have won their three games batting second.

Any target upwards of 150 runs would be competitive on this pitch.

Lahore Qalandars v Islamabad United Head-to-Head

The two sides have met 10 times in the Pakistan Super League – Islamabad United have won 8 of those matches. They have not lost a game to the Qalandars since the 2017 season.

Toss Winner

Unlike the stats in the head-to-head tally, the numbers when it comes to the coin toss are more evenly matched. In the 10 times the sides have clashed, both of them have won the toss on five occasions. I’m backing Islamabad to win the toss.

Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Match Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Qalandars to win @ 1.6 with Pure Win

Lahore Qalandars are looking comparatively better than their Islamabad counterparts, especially after signing Rashid Khan. If anything, that has made their bowling department one of the strongest in the competition and should give them a huge edge on the flat pitch in Abu Dhabi.

Batting-wise, Zaman, Tim David, and Hafeez bring in a lot of form and momentum. Meanwhile, Islamabad United have been undoubtedly weakened by the departure of their key international players, namely Alex Hales and Lewis Gregory.

Add to this the fact that Qalandars have not beaten ISLU in over four years, their motivation to win this one will be higher and in all fairness, they have the talent and skill on their side too.
