Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Preview

  • One of Pakistan’s most reliable batters, Fakhar Zaman, scored 96 runs with a 213 strike rate to record his best PSL 2023 total.
  • In their previous match against Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United saw Azam Khan’s star grow as the wicketkeeper/batsman slammed 97 runs at a strike rate of 230.
  • With Fakhar Zaman’s background and current form, we anticipate him to score above 40 runs in Match 16.


As the third week of the Pakistan Super League 2023 draws to a close, Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United are poised to square off at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore for the second time this season.

Lahore Qalandars, who have participated in just 3 PSL 2023 games to date, are currently third in the standings after winning two of those games. With 4 points, they might theoretically overtake Multan Sultans for the second position with a victory.

Moving into Match 16, Islamabad United is coming off two victories in a row. They have played in 4 games so far and are 6 points up thanks to 3 victories. They are included in the points chart, and another convincing victory might just push them to the top.

Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

For a day of cricket, this evening is going to be ideal. The humidity may reach its height of roughly 42% during the match hours when the temperature is predicted to range from 29 to 17 degrees.

Both captains would probably choose to bat first after winning the toss because this batting-friendly pitch enables the top-order batter to face the new ball without any additional surprise.

Based on what we have seen so far, fast bowlers will struggle to locate the proper lengths to bowl.
