Today Match Prediction
Lahore Qalandars Preview:
Qalandars are still at the bottom-most position in the points table. As expected, LQ lost all of their matches. Lahore Qalandars is titled as the worst-performing team. As far as the earlier track record of Lahore Qalandars is concerned, they couldn’t be able to qualify for playoffs.
LQ lost their all matches in the current season. But in their last match, they turn things around in the batting after scoring 209 despite making only 60 in 1st 10 overs.
Check PSL Points Table
Lahore was kicked out of the trophy-race in previous seasons. They couldn’t play well in the previous season as well. They managed to win only 3 matches out of 10 in the 4th PSL addition.
Now in this season, Sohail Akhtar will be leading LQ from the front. Chris Lynn, Fakhar Zaman, Jaahid Ali and Salman Butt will also help to sustain the team. These changes may prove beneficial for Qalandars. They have to do a lot of work on their playing combinations.

12 overs each due to rain. Lewis Gregory was awarded by Man of the Match title.
Islamabad United Preview:
The first two matches of Islamabad wasn’t good as they faced defeat. Their position to date is at number three in the points table. The performance of United was satisfactory throughout the PSL seasons. They performed well in all seasons of the Pakistan Super League. But this time they seem a bit unbalanced.
Check PSL Schedule 2020
Some key and game-changer players for Islamabad United are Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Colin Munro, and Luke Ronchi. These will be the match-winning players for Islamabad United. But their start of the PSL 2020 is not good as they lost the opening match despite getting control of the match in both innings.
PSL 2020 Performance
Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans 5th T20 was won by Islamabad. Luke Ronchi was player of the match.
Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United 7th T20 was won by United just by a single wicket. Shadab Khan was awarded by Man of the Match title.
Islamabad United vs Quetta Gladiators 9th T20 was won by Quetta. Ben Cutting was awarded by the man of match award due to his fabulous performance.
Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi 13th T20 was abandoned without a ball bowled to poor weather conditions.
Islamabad United vs Karachi Kings 14th T20 was won by Kings. Alex Hales was the man of the match for his 52 on just 30 balls.
Who Will Win Today’s Match:
According to our prediction, IU will beat LQ in this round because Islamabad seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of Colin Munro and Luke Ronchi.
Colin Munro is in great form these days. Both are known as excellent openers of the T20 innings. Both of them have the ability to create a huge total. But the team can not depend on only two players. They can only win if the whole team performs its best.
Shadab Khan is a world-class spin bowler. The IU bowlers have the ability to defend the totals. So IU will win this match from Lahore with a negligible margin.
Almost all of the athletes from Islamabad United are performing consistently and giving their best for their team. We can easily expect their victory in this match. Lahore also seems good in batting as they made 202 runs last night. This match will be worth watching.
Today Match Toss Predictions
Toss will play a vital role in today’s contest. According to trendeetalk.com, the team who will win the toss today will choose to bowl first because, its not a batting-friendly pitch in Lahore. So bowling first will increase the winning chances for the bowling team. Toss will surely decide the winning team.
There will be a little number of clouds during the match time in Lahore. These days the weather is great for cricket in Lahore. While the temperature will be between 14 and 28-degree celsius. So the weather will not interfere in the normal routine and doesn’t affect the gameplay. No interruptions will be seen hopefully.
