The pulsating action of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 will continue tonight with Lahore Qalandars taking on Islamabad United for a second time this season.

Not only have both teams qualified for the playoffs this season and they are likely to face each other in the first qualifier as well, as they currently occupy the first two spots in PSL 8 table.

Each side will be hoping to get the upper hand for some psychological edge which should give this contest some spice.

Here is all you need to know ahead of their match.

Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United PSL head-to-head record:

United lead this rivalry 9 games to 7 but the recent results have all gone Qalandars’ way who have won 4 of the last 5 games played between the two.

When and Where will the match be played?

The action will take place at Pindi Cricket Stadium at 7:00 PM (PKT)

Players to watch:

Lahore’s vaunted bowling lineup was walloped by Zalmi in their last match so the eyes will be on Rashid Khan, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf for how they respond.

Fakhar Zaman and Abdullah Shafique need to do well with the bat for Qalandars to put on runs while Sikandar Raza and David Weise remain crucial in both departments.

For Islamabad, Faheem Ashraf has emerged in a dual role for his side while Alex Hales, Colin Munro, Azam Khan and Rahmanullah Gurbaz remain capable of setting or chasing big scores on any given day.

Form:

Both teams have lost just once in their previous five games but Lahore’s loss was in their previous fixture.

United are on a three-game win streak and will look to continue their purple patch going with another win.

However, Lahore Qalandars has gotten the better of Islamabad United in four straight PSL matches which should give them confidence heading into the game.
