Here are three players you can pick as the captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 team for the PSL 2021 match between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars.
#3 Colin Munro
In the first game following the PSL's resumption, Colin Munro opened the innings for Islamabad United and was dismissed for 11 off seven balls by James Faulkner.
However, he roared back to form with a sizzling knock against Quetta Gladiators. The hard-hitting New Zealander amassed 90 runs off 36 balls that included a dozen boundaries and five sixes.
#2 James Faulkner
Australian all-rounder James Faulkner picked up 3/32 from four overs in Lahore's first game of the UAE leg against Islamabad. His spell helped restrict Islamabad to 143/9, which Lahore successfully chased.
In the next game against Peshawar Zalmi, Faulkner picked up two wickets within the span of three balls. He dismissed openers Haider Ali & Kamran Akmal early during the chase.
Faulkner is a wicket-taking machine and has the ability to score some quickfire runs with the bat.
#1 Rashid Khan
Rashid Khan picked up a wicket and conceded just nine runs from four overs during his side's first match of the UAE leg. He even contributed 15 runs from just five balls with the bat.
In the next game, Rashid dismantled Peshawar Zalmi's batting lineup with five wickets. He dismissed David Miller, Rovman Powell, Fabian Allen, Sherfane Rutherford and Wahab Riaz to set his team up for a comfortable victory.
Rashid's fine form in the PSL makes him the most suitable candidate to lead your Dream11 team for the match between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars.
