Team line-ups


Dubai: Islamabad United have won the toss and opted to bowl first against Lahore Qalandars

Lahore have lost all their five matches with a number of flaws in their approach, collapsing at least four of the five times they batted. Their campaign started with a huge collapse against Multan Sultans losing their seven wickets for just four runs after being well set at 132-3 for victory in their chase of the 180-run target.

Islamabad then clinched the Super Over much to the disappointment of their huge fans.

Islamabad will be without their key players Andre Russell — ruled out of the event with a hamstring injury — and Rumman Raees through a leg injury.
