Islamabad United had defeated Lahore Qalandars in the opener of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 while they suffered defeat at the hands of Multan Sultans in their second match. Gladiators have only played one match thus far and they are on the top of the table after crushing Peshawar Zalmi.
Qalandars have played two matches thus far. With one win and one loss, they are on the second spot. On the other hand, Peshawar Zalmi will be looking to break the jinx to register their first win in the fourth installment of the flagship tournament.
Qalandars’ skipper Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out of the match against Zalmi as he sustained finger injury. AB de Villiers is likely to lead the team.
