Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United are set to cross swords in Match No. 27 of the 2022 Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Saturday, February 19. The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore will host the contest.

United, led by Shadab Khan, are in a bit of strife, as they are fourth in the points table. Having lost Paul Stirling and Alex Hales for varying reasons, their batting strength has suffered.

They are coming off a ten-run loss against Wahab Riaz's Peshawar Zalmi. After batting first, Zalmi scored 206-8. After that, Azam Khan scored 85 off 45, but failed to take United over the line.

The Qalandars, led by Shaheen Afridi, meanwhile, are second in the points table with ten points from eight games. However, with two matches left, the Qalandars don't have much room for error. They are coming off a 22-run loss to Karachi Kings.

After batting first, the Kings were bowled out for 149 in 19.5 overs. Babar Azam top-scored for them with a 32-ball knock of 39, but didn't receive much support from the others. The Kings then restricted the Qalandars to 127-9.
