Cricket Free Tips | PSL 2021, Match 20: Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars

Islamabad United will play Lahore Qalandars for the second time in this league. On Friday, Islamabad United beat Quetta Gladiators by 10 wickets because of some outstanding batting performances from openers Usman Khawaja and Colin Munro. United climbed to second place in the standings with 8 points after this victory.

Lahore Qalandars had won their previous three matches in a row coming into this match. In the second leg, they defeated Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi. With ten points, they have risen to the top of the standings.

 

Weather

The temperature will be 35 degrees Celsius, and the humidity level for the Islamabad United versus Lahore Qalandars match will be at 57-60%, with a wind speed of 20~24 km/h.

 

Pitch

Despite the fact that the pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium is a little slower, teams have recently surpassed the 160-run milestone. The pacers should get some swing early on, while the batsmen will most likely wait until the middle of the innings to switch gears. Despite the lack of turn, the spinners should get the ball to skid and drift, making it difficult for the batters. Since the pitch is unlikely to shift considerably, both teams should opt to chase after winning the toss.
