Qalandars elect to bowl first against United; Salman Butt included in playing XI

Lahore Qalandars have decided to field first in their home fixture against Islamabad United on Wednesday.

The last time the two teams met, United prevailed in a nail-biter as they edged past the opposition by just one wicket in Rawalpindi.

Qalandars have made two changes to their line-up, roping in Salman Butt and Usman Shinwari ahead of Fakhar Zaman and the unwell Shaheen Afridi.

United have also made a host of changes to their playing XI, including Hussain Talat, Zafar Gohar and Akif Javed. Faheem Ashraf, Muhammad Musa and Ahmed Safi Abdullah are the players to have been left out tonight.

Islamabad United: Shadab Khan (c) Luke Ronchi (wk), Colin Munro, Rizwan Hussain, Colin Ingram, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Dale Steyn, Rumman Raees, Zafar Gohar, Akif Javed

Lahore Qalandars: Sohail Akhtar (c), Chris Lynn, Mohammad Hafeez, Ben Dunk (wk), Salman Butt, Mohammad Faizan, Samit Patel, Seekkuge Prasanna, Usman Shinwari, Salman Irshad, Dilbar Hussain
