The betting tip is...
Islamabad United to beat Lahore Qalandars
Lahore Qalandars started their PSL 2023 campaign on a positive note by defeating Multan Sultans in the first game of the tournament. However, the team lost their second fixture but won the third. The Qalandars have shown a certain amount of inconsistency in the ongoing season of PSL.
The primary concern for the team will be its inconsistent performance from the middle order.
The Qalandars won’t be making any changes to their team for the upcoming fixture.
Predicted Lineup: Sikandar Raza, Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Zaman Khan, Tahir Baig, Hussain Talat, Shaheen Afridi, David Wiese, Haris Rauf, Shai Hope, Rashid Khan
Islamabad United have kept themselves in a good situation in PSL 2023. Their net run rate is higher and that is the only thing that differentiates them from Lahore Qalandars. Islamabad United tried a new opening pair in the last game but Colin Munro completely failed to score and that gave pressure on the middle order.
The primary concern for the team is the opening batting lineup which has failed to give momentum to the team.
Colin Munro will be given another chance to open the game with Rahmanullah Gurbaz.
Predicted Lineup: Colin Munro, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rassie van der Dussen, Shadab Khan (c), Azam Khan (wk), Asif Ali, Mubasir Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Tom Curran, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees
Islamabad United has a good depth in their batting and the middle order looks in good form. We predict a win for Islamabad United against Lahore Qalandars.
