The Eliminator 2 match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 sees Lahore Qalandars take on Islamabad United at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore on Feb 25 (Friday). The match is to begin at 8pm IST.

Teams Status

Lahore Qalandars

Lahore Qalandars failed to grab the opportunity to seal a final berth on their first try, losing to Multan Sultans in Qualifier 1 and now they get their second and final chance to do so.

The reason they lost was their batting failure. Apart from Fakhar Zaman (63 off 45), no Lahore batter did anything of note as they surrendered to a Shahnawaz Dahani-inspired Multan.

The Qalandars will find comfort in the fact that they beat United in both of their round robin fixtures. Their first win was a slim one and came against a full strength Islamabad side but the second one was a lopsided victory but by then Islamabad were depleted and a shell of their former self.

Islamabad

Islamabad got a timely boost for their Eliminator 1 match against Peshawar on Thursday and they made full use of that, with the Englishman playing a massive role in keep his team alive in the competition while knocking out Peshawar.

Hales’ 62 were crucial in a successful run chase of 170 as Islamabad’s rejuvenated batting spine got the job done after a Hasan Ali three-for had restricted Peshawar to 169.

Islamabad are the only PSL side that has won the tournament twice. Multan Sultans are firm favourites to match Islamabad’s feat this year. To stop that from happening, this will be Islamabad’s last chance.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Lahore Qalandars to win @ 1.89

We’ll be honest here. There is little to choose between these two sides. However, a bulk of Islamabad’s batting power still resides in their trio of Hales, Azam Khan and Shadab Khan. It’s not to say that Lahore do not rely heavily on Fakhar Zaman because they do as well. But on paper they have reliable options that can bail them out in lower order. For Islamabad, if Hales departs early, which he can against Shaheen Afridi, then it could be a long night for them. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Fakhar Zaman to score more than 26.5 runs @ 1.87

Fakhar Zaman has been a paragon of consistency all through this PSL with failures very few and far in between. We keep on backing him and he keeps on producing the goods. He has worked almost always for us so this is no time to ditch him. The odds for this bet have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

It’s a tossup but as we said Lahore have the edge in small margins. Therefore, we think Lahore could be set for a trip to their second PSL final.
