Lahore Qalandars will be gutted with their luck in the game against Quetta Gladiators when they lost the match even after scoring 200 runs.
Lahore had the match in their hand for almost the very part of it. The last five overs of the Quetta inning took the game away.
When a player of Kevin Pietersen’s calibre is in such good form, no one in the world can deny him victory. He hit 8 humongous sixes in his well-crafted 88-run inning of just 42 balls to sail Gladiators across.
Learning from the mistakes, Lahore should look forward, as they have a different task this time. They face, defending champions Islamabad.
Islamabad should be confident and relaxed as they have held their nerves in most of the games. Winning or losing comes second, but fighting till the end is the true spirit of cricket. They have shown it in last season and even in the PSL 2017.
Tonight’s game will be another tester of their patience and moral.
Islamabad United Squad (expected)
Misbah-ul-Haq*, Amad Butt, S Badree, BJ Haddin, Imran Khalid, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Sami, Rumman Raees, DR Smith, SR Watson.
Lahore Qalandars Squad (expected)
BB McCullum*, Bilawal Bhatti, CS Delport, Fakhar Zaman, JEC Franklin, Mohammad Rizwan, SP Narine, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Akmal, Usman Qadir, Yasir Shah.
