ISL vs QUE Dream11 Team Prediction: 18th Match, PSL 2021
Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators will play in the 18th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. We will cover ISL vs QUE Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Islamabad United has performed well as they have won three out of the five matches and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 6 points. However, they performed poorly in the last game and lost by five wickets.
The new opening pair Khawaja and Munro gave a decent start but couldn’t continue the momentum and got out early. Rohail Nazir, who is used to play aggressively, also went quite early. Shadab Khan is struggling to score the runs.
Iftikhar Ahmed and Talat tried to stabilize the inning in the middle-order, but they were scoring very slow. Asif Ali went early, but Faheem Ashraf batted well and scored some crucial runs. In the end, Hasan Ali and Wasim Jr scored some quick runs and helped the team to reach a decent total.
In the bowling department, Hasan Ali continues to be the critical wicket-taker of the team, and Faheem Ashraf has also picked up wickets at crucial times. In addition, Shadab Khan and Fawad Ahmed managed to pick up a wicket each in the last match.
They would want to win the next match against Quetta Gladiators and climb up few spots in the points table.
Gladiators wouldn’t be happy with how they have performed so far in this season as they have won only one out of the five matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table. They had their first win in the last game by 22 runs.
They have tried various opening pairs, but none seemed to work unless in the last match where Usman Khan batted brilliantly in his first match of the season along with Saim Ayyub, who batted decently and gave a terrific start to the team. At No.3, du Plessis has been batting decently, but he is yet to play a big inning.
Skipper Sarfaraz has batted well so far in this season and scored runs consistently. Azam Khan has performed decently, but Mohammad Nawaz has been doing the finisher’s job perfectly by scoring quick runs. With Andre Russell, Jake Weatherald, Jack Wildermuth, and Zahir Khan, the team look stronger.
The bowlers had struggled to lot to pick up wickets in the initial games but have appeared to be improving in the last few games. Zahid Mahmood and Mohammad Hasnain have been the consistent wicket-takers of the team. Nawaz managed to pick up a wicket in the previous match.
Quetta Gladiators need to win most of their remaining matches to stay in the race for the playoffs.
