Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United, PSL 2021

Winless Quetta Gladiators take on Multan Sultans, who are faring only slightly better, in the Pakistan Super League. The two bottom teams in the PSL 2021 table after four matches meet at Karachi’s National Stadium on March 3 and the live action starts at 19:00 local time.

Quetta Gladiators, who also missed out on the play-offs last season, have lost all four matches so far. Most recently, they hit 156/7 against Islamabad United and fell to a six-wicket defeat in just 17 overs. The one positive is the fact Sarfaraz Ahmed has now scored 135 runs in his last two innings.

Multan Sultans, meanwhile, have just one win to their name and could not back it up despite hitting 195/6 against Karachi Kings last time out. Mohammad Rizwan and James Vince are in good batting form overall, but the Sultans are just two points above Quetta after four games.

Lahore Qalandars Team News & Playing 11

LHQ Team News

Despite Joe Denly’s first-baller last time out, Lahore Qalandars could stick once again with an unchanged team, with the English all-rounder continuing in place of Rashid Khan who is now on international duty.

LHQ Key Players

  • Shaheen Afridi: Claimed another three wickets last time out to move to nine wickets in four games so far and underline his importance to this bowling attack.
  • Mohammad Hafeez: A rare low score last time out, but his good batting form at the start of the tournament underlined what he still has to offer. He is also a useful bowling option.
  • Fakhar Zaman: Top-scored for the second time in four games when he hit 83 from 54 balls last time out, having previously hit 82* in the win against Quetta Gladiators.

LHQ Team Form

Lahore Qalandars have won three of their four matches so far, most recently bouncing back from a heavy seven-wicket defeat to Multan Sultans by chasing 187 to beat Karachi Kings. Shaheen Afridi took 3-27 with the ball and Fakhar Zaman – who also top-scored in their previous win – smashed 83 from 54 balls to lead them to 189/4 in 19.2 overs.

Lahore Qalandars Predicted Playing 11

Islamabad United Team News & Playing 11

ISU Team News

Islamabad United, as expected, responded to their poor batting display in PSL 2021 against Peshawar Zalmi by bringing in Rohail Nazir. His batting should see him retain his place and also means, if fit, Lewis Gregory is free to replace Muhammad Musa without needing to shuffle the other overseas picks. Gregory is still a doubt after missing the last two matches injured.

ISU Key Players

  • Alex Hales: Yet to go big with the bat, but his useful contributions at the top of the order continued last time out, as the in-form Englishman shared a 76-run opening partnership in just 5.5 overs with Paul Stirling.
  • Hasan Ali: Not only has he taken two wickets in each of the last two matches, but he has also bowled economically too – conceding just 37 runs from his last eight overs in this tournament.
  • Faheem Ashraf: Reminded everyone of his talents when he claimed 3-11 last time out, to ensure Lewis Gregory was not missed with the ball.

ISU Team Form

Islamabad United has won three from four, getting back on track last time out after a heavy defeat to Peshawar Zalmi. Islamabad slumped to 118 all out against Zalmi and lost by six wickets, but they bowled and batted well against Quetta Gladiators last time out. Hasan Ali (2-23) and Faheem Ashraf (3-11) led the bowling effort to limit Quetta to 156/7 and Paul Stirling’s 56 from 33 balls at the top of the order ensured victory was never in doubt. Islamabad reached 157/4 in just 17 overs to win by six wickets.

Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Team Form in Last Five Matches



LHQ vs ISU Head to Head

Lahore Qalandars have only won two of their ten previous meetings with Islamabad United, with Islamabad beating them twice season despite their overall dreadful campaign. They chased 183 to win the first match by one wicket with one ball to spare. Mohammad Hafeez had earlier hit 98* and Shaheen Afridi took 4-18, but number 11 Muhammad Musa proved to be their unlikely hero when he hit 17* from 11 balls. Islamabad United’s more recent win was more convincing. They smashed 198/3 and then bowled the Qalandars out for just 127 in reply.

Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Prediction

Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United are both in identical situations. The toss is likely to be key, regarding who fields first, but Islamabad United are the more generously-priced pre-match.

Final Verdict

Islamabad United are favorites to win against Lahore Qalandars. Back Islamabad United to beat Lahore Qalandars at 1.90.

LHQ vs ISU Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Ben Dunk found some batting form last time out and looks good value at 8.5 credits, while Rohail Nazir made an immediate impact with the bat after coming into the Islamabad United team. He is excellent value at eight credits.

  • Batsmen

    Alex Hales and Fakhar Zaman are key men at the top of the order for their respective teams. Hales has been consistent for Islamabad United, while Zaman has brought the fireworks for Lahore Qalandars. Paul Stirling top-scored for Islamabad last time out, meanwhile, meaning all three justify their costs.

  • All rounder

    Mohammad Hafeez is key with the bat and generally in good form too, albeit he has not bowled prominently so far. Still, he looks worth the outlay at ten credits. Faheem Ashraf was back in wicket-taking form last time out, meanwhile, to justify selecting him ahead of team-mate Shadab Khan.

  • Bowlers

    That leaves four bowling spaces. Rashid Khan is on international duty, so Shaheen Afridi is the stand-out bowling pick for Lahore Qalandars. He is a must-pick given his wicket-taking form and Hasan Ali is a key man with the ball for Islamabad United and also consistent. Both are key picks. Haris Rauf is 8.5 credits but has showed his importance with his bowling in game two, while Mohammad Wasim’s wicket-taking makes him good value at just eight credits.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Shaheen Afridi’s wicket-taking form makes him a top wicket-taking bowling option and a fair choice for captain. Team-mates Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez are in good batting form, meanwhile. Given he is more consistent and bowls too, Hafeez could be the better vice-captain pick.

LHQ vs ISU Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Fakhar Zaman, Alex Hales, Paul Stirling

  • All Rounder:Mohammad Hafeez (vc), Faheem Ashraf

  • Wicket Keeper:Rohail Nazir, Ben Dunk

  • Bowler:Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Wasim
