Islamabad United are in seventh heaven after losing to Peshawar by 5 wickets in the first match of the Eliminator. The same Lahore had to face a crushing defeat against Multan Sultans in the qualifier match. United are set to take on Lahore in the second match of the Eliminator of the PSL who had performed very well in the league stage, and this match is going to be a ‘do or die’ for both the teams as their defeat in this match will end here and the winning team will take on Multan Sultans in the final.
Islamabad’s strength is their batting. Perhaps this is the reason why the best PSL betting sites are still in favor of Islamabad United to win this match. At the same time, Lahore Qalandars’ defeat in the qualifiers must have been defeated, but taking Lahore lightly can be a heavy blow for Islamabad.
Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars Eliminator 2 match is going to be played on 25 February 2022 at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. If you also want to play betting online then join PSL betting telegram channel where you will be given more than one betting tips which will help you to win big amount.
Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars Prediction Eliminator
Islamabad United Team Preview
Islamabad United once seemed one of the better teams to qualify for the playoffs at the end of the first half, but were completely helpless in the second half of the group stage. After finishing second in the points table for a long time, Islamabad United was finally able to stay at the fourth position with just eight points to their name.
The main reason for United’s dismal performance in their last few matches was the absence of Shadab Khan, who has now recovered from a previous injury. Other than that, Islamabad United doesn’t have much to worry about, especially as Alex Hales is set to return to join the squad.
Overall, with the return of Shadab Khan, Islamabad United are looking much stronger than in their last few matches. They will need their star players to do well in this upcoming match and if they can do that, Islamabad United can win the match.
Islamabad United Probable 11
Will Jaques, Danish Aziz, Shadab Khan (c), Liam Dasson, Asif Ali, Azam Khan (wk), Faheem Ashraf, Waqas Maqsood, Zafar Gohar, Merchant de Lange, Zahir Khan
Lahore Qalandars Team Preview
Lahore Qalandars is the only team that has defeated Multan Sultans this season. Now the question is whether they will be able to beat Islamabad, the winning team of the first eliminator. There are a few things that go against Lahore Qalandars. The first is that Lahore Qalandars have lost two of their most recent three matches and the second is their reliance on Fakhar Zaman with the bat.
Fakhar Zaman is head and shoulders above all and is the top run-scorer of PSL 2022. However, if he gets out, then the team can be in a lot of trouble. Harry Brooke has done exceptionally well in a few matches and we know what Phil Salt is capable of, however, the conditions are not to his liking. We believe that if Fakhar Zaman gets out cheaply, then Lahore Qalandars will have to fight to match.
Rashid Khan has left the PSL to join the Afghanistan national team and this is another big loss in terms of the team’s strength. Qalandar has brought in Fawad Ahmed, but he is nowhere near the same kind of threat. Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf can never be counted and they will take a big responsibility with the ball. The risk that Lahore Qalandars pose is unbelievable, but we don’t think the odds justify the risk you would have to bet on them.
Lahore Qalandars Probable 11
Fakhar Zaman, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohail Akhtar, Phil Salt (wk), Harry Brooke, Fawad Ahmed, David Wije, Shaheen Shah Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan
