What’s My prediction (no Calculations Whatsoever Just my 6th Sense Lets see) ?

The last 5 Matches between these teams, Lahore Qalandars won 4 matches over Islamabad United, while Islamabad United only able to win one match over Lahore Qalandars in the last five Matches between these teams. The teams are evenly matched, therefore there will be a tough competition.

Nonetheless, Islamabad United has triumphed in its last two contests. They triumphed over Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators in their previous two games. The Shadab Khan-led club would be thrilled to win three straight games.

Last night, the reigning champions defeated Peshawar Zalmi in a thrilling victory to start their home leg. They’ll be eager to keep up their winning streak.Here’s a look from the two teams’ past encounters before the match between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars begins. After seeing the results of last five matches between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United my prediciton goes in favour of Lahore Qalandars.

My Prediction for the match is : Lahore Qalandars to Win

The Result ?

Lahore Qalandars won by 110 runs.

Now, Lahore Qalandars improved upon their already impressive work. Their spinners made life difficult for the batters after reaching 200 for the second time in a row and kept impeding Islamabad United’s pursuit with wickets at regular intervals. The foreign Qalandar, David Wiese, liked his bowling tonight and took three wickets, while Rashid Khan, who had a bad performance yesterday night, returned to his regular duties tonight and outwitted Asif Ali and Tom Curran.

The victory for Lahore over Islamabad by 110 runs is a stunning one. They contributed throughout the batting order and were excellent with the bat. After then, their all-star bowling attack took care of the remaining issues. In the powerplay, Islamabad had actually started off on a bit of a high note, but Lahore responded by taking a tonne of wickets. Rashid wasn’t far behind Wiese in terms of the pick with a 3-fer.

As the middle order collapsed under the weight of the scoreboard, nobody took the time to settle in, and there were several soft dismissals, Shadab Khan would want to shrug this thrashing off and possibly change their batting strategy. Lahore’s winning streak continues as they continue to suffocate the opposition with their powerful bowling assault.

Player of the Match ?

David Weise Player of the Match (POTM)

David Weise is the Player of the Match (POTM) 3/17 in his 4 overs spell, he is awarded POTM for his performance edged Rashid Khan.
