LQ vs IU Team Previews
Once again, the Lahore Qalandars relied heavily on Fakhar Zaman for their runs in the PSL 2022 competition. In the previous match, Fakhar Zaman had a score of 63, but no other batsmen were able to surpass a score of 20.
After the first inning, the Qalandars appeared to be below-par with 163. It’s unlikely that the same batting inconsistency will vanish overnight. Qalandars may use Philip Salt and Fakhar in the powerplay to exploit the new ball, but it’s impossible to know for sure right now.
If you look at it, the batting line-up of David Wiese and Abdullah Shafique is a solid one. However, it hasn’t been performing as well as expected.
Without Rashid Khan or even Fawad Ahmed in the team, the rest of the bowlers had a difficult time keeping the runs in check in Eliminator 1. After bowling their full allotment of overs, Mohammad Hafeez and Samit Patel failed to make an impact with the ball.
The Lahore Qalandars, who have dropped three of their previous four games, are not in their best shape going into this game they must win.
Lahore Qalandars Playing 11
Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafique, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Phil Salt (wk), Harry Brook, Samit Patel, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan.
Islamabad United’s line-up improved immediately after Alex Hales returned to the starting lineup. Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, and the all-rounders at the bottom of the order all contributed to his 62-run tonne.
Islamabad United’s batting appears to be weaker when compared man to man, but we believe they have the right players in the right positions. This can have a significant impact on how effective they are in the long run. During the middle and death overs, players like Will Jacks and Alex Hales can attack with the new ball. The middle order, on the other hand, almost exclusively consists of defensive players.
We don’t see much of a disparity in the two teams’ batting averages.
Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali will spearhead Islamabad United’s bowling attack. Hasan Ali took three wickets in Eliminator 1 to join Shadab as the leading wicket-taker in PSL 2022. As well as Faheem Ashraf, Waqas Maqsood, and Liam Dawson, they will all have a role to play in this match.

There is a tendency for the team that wins the coin toss to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions
Because the Lahore weather forecast called for clear skies, we won’t have to worry about any disruptions. Last two games were played on a slow, low pitch; this one should be no different. Because of the lack of dew, this ground offers no real advantages for chasing.
We expect a score of around 165-175 to be the norm for this match at the venue.

LQ vs IU Betting Tips
Islamabad United is the team we’re backing to win. The odds on offer don’t seem to match up with the recent performances of the two teams. With more power in the middle order, Islamabad United will benefit, while Lahore Qalandars’ extreme dependence on Fakhar Zaman could prove costly.
Islamabad United is the team to back.
