Lahore Qalandars have set a 201-run target against Islamabad United in the 16th match of the ongoing eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Monday.

Tahir Baig and Fakhar Zaman gave Lahore Qalandars a good start against Islamabad United. The two batters stitched a 58-run target for the first wicket.

However, Shadab Khan gave Islamabad a much-needed breakthrough as he bowled out Tahir after he scored 20 runs off 17 balls.

In the next over, Fakhar was dismissed by Tom Curran. The left-handed batter was trying to go for a bid shot, but the ball toppled the stums after an inside edge.


Nevertheless, the onslaught continued as Abdullah Shafique, and Sam Billings continued to hit boundaries.

Abdullah and Sam put on a magnificent 71-run partnership off just 38 balls. But Curran struck again and broke the crucial partnership as he dismissed Abdullah, who was caught by Rahmanullah Gurbaz at midwicket.

The 23-year-old departed after scoring 45 runs off 24 balls, including four boundaries and two maximums.

Billings was the next batter to walk back as his compatriot got the better of him. The right-handed batter scored 33 runs off 23 balls.

Following Billings’ departure, David Weise (12) came to the crease but was sent packing by Abrar Ahmed.

Spinner Rashid Khan also played a crucial cameo of 18 runs, which included two boundaries and a six. But fell to Hasan Ali.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Sikandar Raza gathered 23 runs off 10 balls.

Earlier, Lahore had won the toss and opted to bat first against Islamabad.

Both sides will be pumped up as they won their last games convincingly. United beat Quetta Gladiators in Karachi whereas Qalandars defeated Peshawar Zalmi last night in Lahore.
