LQ vs IU Prediction - Feb 25, 2022

Islamabad United won Eliminator 1 against Peshawar Zalmi, quite comfortably in the end, and will now be playing against the Lahore Qalandars as it tries to make it to the PSL 2022 Final. This is going to be the third time that Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars are going to be playing against each other. Both previous matches were won by the Lahore Qalandars.

The Qalandars are the favorites at all the cricket betting sites to win this match as well.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Lahore Qalandars vs Islamabad United Eliminator 2 PSL 2022. The match is going to be played at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on the 25th of February 2022.

LQ vs IU Team Previews

Lahore Qalandars

The Lahore Qalandars have been very dependent on Fakhar Zaman for their runs in PSL 2022 and that proved to be the case once more. Fakhar Zaman scored 63 in the previous match but none of the other batsmen were able to get past 20.

The Qalandars failed to chase down 163 which seemed to be below-par after the first inning. This same batting weakness is not going to go away immediately. Maybe the Qalandars could send up Philip Salt and use him in the powerplay alongside Fakhar to try and make use of the hard new ball but that is impossible to predict right now.

Abdullah Shafique, Kamran Ghulam, Harry Brook, Samit Patel, Phil Salt, and David Wiese form a pretty good batting lineup on paper but it has not been performing as expected.

Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf did not pick up a single wicket in Eliminator 1 and without Rashid Khan or even Fawad Ahmed in the team, the rest of the bowlers struggled to keep the runs down. Mohammad Hafeez and Samit Patel bowled their full quota of overs but were not really threatening in terms of taking wickets.

With three losses in its previous four matches, the Lahore Qalandars are not in the best form coming into this must-win match.

Lahore Qalandars Playing 11

Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafiq, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Harry Brook, Philip Salt, D Wiese, SR Patel, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan.

Islamabad United

Islamabad United welcomed back Alex Hales at the top of the order and that made an immediate difference to their lineup. He top-scored with 62 and has decent support from Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, and the all-rounders down the order.

If you just compare man to man, Islamabad United's batting seems to be a bit weaker but we think they have got players in their right places. That can play a big role in how productive they end up being. Will Jacks and Alex Hales are excellent options to take advantage of the new ball while the middle-order is almost exclusively made up of players that can attack during the middle and death overs.

In terms of the batting strength, we don't think there is much difference between the two teams.

The bowling attack for Islamabad United is going to be led by Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali. Shadab is the leading wicket-taker of PSL 2022 and Hasan Ali also picked up three wickets in Eliminator 1. Waqas Maqsood, Liam Dawson, and Faheem Ashraf will all need to play their part in this match as well.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for Lahore predicted clear skies and so we have no interruptions to worry about. The pitch has been slow and low for the last couple of matches and that will likely be the case once more. There is no dew either and this is why there is no real advantage to chasing at this ground.

We think a score of around 165-175 is going to be par for the venue in this match.

LQ vs IU Betting Tips

We are going to bet on Islamabad United to win. From a betting point of view, the odds on offer do not quite correlate to the performances of the two teams recently. We think having more power in the middle order is going to pay dividends for Islamabad United and the extreme dependence of Lahore Qalandars on Fakhar Zaman could prove costly.

Bet on Islamabad United to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. 4rabet


    Azam Khan Total Runs

    Over 18.5 (1.85)


We think this is a very favorable Over/Under line being offered for Azam Khan. He is going to play a major role in the middle-order and is in quite good form. Worth a punt.

  1. BetBarter


    Total Wickets in the Match

    Over 12.5 (2.20)


This bet is a bit risky but with the wicket slowing down and not really allowing free stroke play, the batsmen may be forced to take more risks and throw away their wickets. The odds on offer make the risk worth it in our opinion.

  1. Club Riches

    Club Riches

    A Fifty in the Match

    No (5.00)


Use this bet to just hedge your bets a bit in the match. On a slowing wicket, it is not at all uncommon for a match to go by without any batsman getting past fifty. With 5x returns on the table, a small bet would also fetch you some pretty good returns. It is a very high-risk bet by nature, of course.
