LAH vs ISL Dream11 Team Prediction: 15th Match, PSL 2021
Hello and welcome to our LAH vs ISL Dream11 Team Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United will play against each other in the 15th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Qalandars have performed well so far as they have won three out of the four matches and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with 6 points. In the last game, they performed brilliantly and won the game by six wickets.
The opening batsman Fakhar Zaman has been batting well this season and played a brilliant knock in the last match. His partner Sohail Akthar is the team captain who has been struggling to score runs and was out for a duck in the previous game.
Mohammad Hafeez has been changing his batting order according to the requirement of the team and has been consistently scoring runs. Callum Ferguson is a good replacement for Joe Denly as he scores run consistently. Ben Dunk is an experienced player in the middle-order and plays a crucial role in the finishing duties of the innings.
The bowling department has also been doing a decent job so far this season. Shaheen Afridi has been the consistent wicket-taker but was expensive in the last match. Haris Rauf and Daniyal managed to pick up one wicket each in the previous game. The return of Rashid Khan and also the availability of James Faulkner make the team even stronger.
Lahore Qalandars would want to continue their winning momentum and try to get back on the top of the points table.
Islamabad United has also performed well so far as they have won three out of the four matches and are currently at the 3rd position on the points table with 6 points. In the last game, they performed well and won the game by six wickets.
With Alex Hales and Stirling not in the team, it is most likely that Usman Khawaja and Colin Munro would be the new openers. Skipper Shadab Khan played at No.3 but changed his batting position as he struggled to score runs and started playing in the middle-order.
The young wicket-keeper Rohail Nazir batted well in the last match at No.3. Asif Ali has been batting well and providing good finishes for the team in most of the games. Hussain Talat and Iftikhar Ahmed have also played a couple of good knocks in the middle-order.
In the bowling department, Hasan Ali has been the critical wicket-taker of the team, and Faheem Ashraf has bowled well, picking up wickets at crucial times. Shadab Khan managed to pick up a wicket in the last match.
Islamabad United would want to defeat the Qalandars and try to move up on the points table.
