Islamabad United (ISL) and Lahore Qalandars (LAH) square off in match No. 23 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 on Wednesday, March 6, at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi.

Islamabad are on a roll after winning three games on the trot. So far in the tournament, Shadab Khan and Co. have won three matches and lost as many while one of their games was washed out. Islamabad will look to maintain their winning streak and solidify their chances of making it to the next stage.

Lahore, on the other hand, have had a forgettable campaign in the tournament so far. They lost six games in a row before their last encounter against Peshawar Zalmi was washed out. While Shaheen Afridi’s men are still mathematically in the hunt for a playoff berth, they have to address multiple issues in order to turn things around.

These two sides met last month in Lahore. Islamabad chased down a 196-run target with eight wickets and 10 balls to spare.

Pitch Report

Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium is known for producing some of the best batting pitches in the country. Last year, Multan Sultans chased down a mammoth 243-run target against Peshawar Zalmi with four wickets and five balls to spare. Also, in a match between Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans, a whopping 515 runs were scored. The first two games at this venue in PSL 2024 were washed out. In the third game, Islamabad scored 196/4 before restricting Peshawar to 167/9. Winning the toss and opting to bat first could be a good ploy. Putting on a massive first-innings score and applying scoreboard pressure could be a great strategy.
