Islamabad United (IU), who recently defeated Multan Sultans in an exciting triumph, will now play Lahore Qalandars (LQ) on March 9 at Rawalpindi’s Pindi Club Field. Importantly, the Qalandars are in incredible form right now, having won five of their past six league games. Shaheen Shah Afridi’s team won’t be very concerned after losing to Peshawar Zalmi in their last game and will be hoping to rebound against Islamabad.
The hosts, meanwhile, have won five of their most recent six games with an intriguing one-loss streak against the Qalandars in the midst. They are now on a three-match winning streak as their batting has been excellent in the middle. They now need to improve their bowling a little more before the qualifiers since the Shadab Khan-led team has been leaking a lot of runs in these games.

Probable Best Performers
Probable best batter:
Azam Khan, a stutter-batter, has been fantastic thus far in the current Pakistan Super League (PSL). The 24-year-old has played in eight games and has 280 runs scored at a 162.7 strike rate. He presently ranks third in the competition in terms of runs scored, and if he gets to get going, the Qalandars will struggle on the field.
Probable best bowler:
Shaheen Afridi, the captain of the Qalandars, has been a formidable opponent. The bowler is the second-leading wicket-taker in the competition with 14 wickets taken in eight games. In the last game, he also made a significant contribution with the bat, making him one of the players to keep an eye on when the team plays Islamabad United.
