Lahore Qalandars elected to field against Islamabad United in the last group stage contest at Sharjah Cricket Ground.
After they were pushed down to the last spot on the points table, Lahore Qalandars will look to live over PSL2’s fourth contest, in which they beat Islamabad United to register their first win of the league.
Opting to chase, Qalandars’ pursuit of 159 was made successful by Jason Roy’s unbeaten 51-ball 60. However, they will be deprived of the English opener’s services for the rest of the season as he joins his national one-day international squad to tour West Indies.
Brendon McCullum-led Qalandars have had a roller coaster ride in the build up to this competition. They have been reduced to 59 all out by Peshawar Zalmi and have amassed first double-century of this season. On both occasions, however, they have been on the losing end.
In their most recent contest, they were annihilated by Kevin Pietersen that helped Quetta Gladiators chase down 201 with seven balls spare.
Misbah-ul-Haq’s United, on the other hand, stand at the second spot of the points table with three wins in two matches. Alike Qalandars, they lost their last contest. Weather-gods had a role to play in their defeat against Karachi Kings, unlike their opposition.
