ECS T10 Vienna (21)

Pakistan Super League – 2021

LAH vs ISL, Match – 15, The match is all set to take place at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi


Preview – 

Both Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United have won three games each out of their four outings so far. Islamabad United is stationed at number 3, owing to a better run-rate while Lahore Qalandars finds themselves at number 4, just below their opponents. Interestingly, in head-to-head encounters, Islamabad United holds an edge over Lahore Qalandars. Islamabad United has not lost to Qalandars in the last five head-to-head meetings.

With a couple of foreign players missing out, especially the English players, it will be a real test for both sides in this Abu Dhabi leg. Also, needless to say, the pitches in UAE are comparatively slower than the pitches in Pakistan, where the first phase took place, and it will be interesting to watch how quickly the teams adapt to this change. And, with the due coming in the second innings, it is going to be a lot tougher to defend.


Pitch Report – 


It’s a balanced wicket with equal help for both batters and bowlers, batting will become much easier in the latter half of the match. Anything close to 180 is a good competitive score on this wicket.

Fakhar Zaman has been the consistent performer at the top of the order, who has scored huge runs in the recent overseas series. He has scored 189 runs in 4 matches so far in this year’s PSL at an average of 63.

Usman Khawaja will be the star attraction for Islamabad United and he is likely to play his 1st PSL game. He did really well in the BBL 2020-21, scoring 338 runs in 15 matches at an average of 24.14.


Top Picks ­– All-Rounders


Mohammad Hafeez cricketer is an inspiration to many youngsters. His pure timing and ability to hit the sixes are some of his pure strengths. So far in this tournament, he has scored 181 runs in 4 matches at an average of 90.5

Shadab Khan is a good young cricketer who had led the side quite well in this year’s PSL. Top performances are yet to come from his side in this tournament. He is a brilliant all-rounder player and you must include him in your fantasy teams.


Top Picks ­– Bowlers


Rashid Khan is the player you can’t afford to miss while making your fantasy teams. His variations are a nightmare for any batter in the world and he is a decent striker lower down the order as well.
