After their win over Peshawar Zalmi in Match 20, Islamabad United were unchanged ahead of their clash with bottom of the table Lahore Qalandars on Wednesday. We expect Tymal Mills to come into the team in place of the young Hunain Shah in this match.

ISL Key Players

  • Alex Hales – the 35 year old has bounced back from disappointing runs of scores before and he will be backing himself against the Kings who he hit 47 against earlier in the tournament.
  • Shadab Khan – The skipper has produced many strong all-round performances so far in this campaign and will be determined to contribute after the surprise defeat against Lahore.
  • Runman Raees – The pace bowler dismissed two of Lahore Qalandars’ top three in the last match including Rassie van der Dussen, the leading run scorer in the tournament.
  • Faheem Ashraf – The all-rounder got the wicket of Sikandar Raza in the last game and delivered an entertaining 41 not out with the bat.
