Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction PSL 2020 7th match - Lahore Qalandars v Islamabad United
The 7th match of the Pakistan Super League 2020 will be played between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Lahore Qalandars lost their first match of the Pakistan Super League 2020 against Multan Sultans by 5 wickets. The team batted first and did not have a great outing at their home ground at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore.
They had a decent partnership of 59 between openers Fakhar Zaman and Chris Lynn with both going great guns. But, once Lynn was dismissed for a well-made 19-ball 39, their innings slowed down a bit.
Despite a 34-run contribution from skipper Sohail Akhtar, their innings could not get going and the team managed only 138 from their 20 overs. In reply, Shaheen Afridi was excellent with the ball and ended with figures of 4-18-1. But, he did not get enough support from his fellow bowlers as the team lost by 5 wickets.
Islamabad United did not get off to a great start either, losing their first match against Quetta Gladiators by three wickets.
After opener Colin Munro was dismissed for a golden duck, it was Dawid Malan who ensured that the team was on the right track. However, in a bid to up the ante, they kept losing wickets on regular intervals and could not last their full quota of 20 overs, putting 168 runs on the board.
This was a defendable total but skipper Shadab Khan and all-rounder Amad Butt had an off day. Despite good figures of 4-30-3 from Mohammad Musa, the United lost the game quite comfortably.
