ISL vs LAH Dream11 Prediction

Pakistan Super League, 2019 | Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars, 1st Match | ISL vs LAH Who Will Win

The epitome of franchise cricket in Pakistan, the Pakistan Super League or PSL is back with its fourth edition with the kick-off game to be played between the two-time and reigning champions Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. Just like the last year, the tournament will be contested in a double round-robin format where each team will collide with the other twice in the league stage.

Islamabad United

The two-time and reigning champions will put their title on the line this year under a new leader in the form of veteran Pakistan pacer Mohammad Sami.

The team has some quality players in their ranks with the likes of Luke Ronchi, Samit Patel, Cameron Delport along with some regular national names like Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf etc.

The team is a good amalgamation of both youths and experienced which can eventually work in their favour for the title defence.

Lahore Qalandars

After a dismal show last year where they finished on the bottom-most position, Lahore need to go through some transitions. They started off with naming Mohammad Hafeez as their skipper and then got probably the biggest fish in the auction in the form of Proteas great Ab de Villiers.

Apart from these two big names, the likes of Carlos Brathwaite, Sandeep Lamichhane, Corey Anderson, David Weise, Agha Salman and Fakhar Zaman are in their setup which certainly makes them a team to watch out.

In the bowling unit, skipper Mohammad Sami will be the leader while the likes of Z Gohar, Amad Butt and Rumman Raees will be the other safe bets.
