The 2nd Eliminator of the HBL PSL 7 season will be played between Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore; the match will start at 07:30 PM IST, 02:00 GMT, 07:00 PM Local Time.
Islamabad United defeated Peshawar Zalmi in Eliminator 1 and will now face the Lahore Qalandars in the PSL 2nd Eliminator before heading towards the final. This will be the third meeting between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars. The Lahore Qalandars had won both prior matches.
Lahore Qalandars Overview
The Lahore Qalandars have been quite reliant on Fakhar Zaman throughout their PSL 2022 campaigns, and this proved to be the case once again. Fakhar Zaman struck 63 in the last encounter but none of the other batters were able to go above 20.
The Qalandars failed to chase down 163 which appeared to be below-par after the first inning. This same batting weakness is not going to go gone suddenly. Perhaps the Qalandars will bring up Philip Salt and pair him with Fakhar on the powerplay to make the most of the new ball, but that is impossible to anticipate at the moment.
Abdullah Shafique, Kamran Ghulam, Harry Brook, Samit Patel, Phil Salt, and David Wiese make a reasonably solid batting order on paper but it has not been performing as expected.
Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf failed to take a wicket in Eliminator 1, and without Rashid Khan or even Fawad Ahmed, the rest of the bowlers struggled to restrict the runs. Mohammad Hafeez and Samit Patel bowled their allotted overs but were not particularly dangerous in terms of wicket-taking.
Islamabad United Overview
Islamabad United reintroduced Alex Hales at the top of the order, which immediately improved their lineup. He top-scored with 62 and is supported well by Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, and the all-rounders further down the order.
When comparing man to man, Islamabad United’s batting appears to be slightly inferior, but we believe they have the right players in the appropriate positions. This can have a significant impact on how productive they become. Will Jacks and Alex Hales are great possibilities for exploiting the new ball, while the middle order is nearly entirely composed of players capable of attacking in the middle and death overs.
In terms of batting strength, we believe there is little separation between the two sides. Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali will spearhead Islamabad United’s bowling assault. Shadab is the PSL 2022’s highest wicket-taker, while Hasan Ali also took three wickets in Eliminator 1. Waqas Maqsood, Liam Dawson, and Faheem Ashraf will also be required to contribute to this encounter.
