Pakistan Super League (PSL 2018) is moving to the business end of the competition with teams battling it out to finish in the semi-final spots. 18th match of the competitions sees Islamabad United take on the Lahore Qalandars and we take a look at the preview, live scores, live stream details, and TV Channel info ahead of the game. Islamabad United have suffered a major blow after Andre Russell has been ruled out of the PSL 2018 meanwhile Lahore Qalandars will have a fitter squad to choose from as they look to get their first win of the tournament. PSL 2018 is being telecasted LIVE on channel DSport with offering live stream options for the users.

PSL 2018: Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars Preview

Islamabad United can still pull off a surprise by qualifying for the semi-final of the PSL 2018 as they are level on points with Peshawar Zalmi having played a game less. Islamabad United have a plethora of all-around talent to chose from despite Russell’s unfortunate injury. In Samit Patel and Shadab Khan, Islamabad have genuine wicket takers who can contribute with the bat when being called upon. Luke Ronchi’s form has been the biggest positive for them as he is capable of winning games on his own during powerplay overs.

Sadly for Lahore Qalandars, they are yet to win a single game and it is not hard to figure out why. Brendon McCullum and Fakhar Zaman have seen little support from their middle order and it was a similar story in their crushing 10-wkt defeat last time around against Peshawar Zalmi. Spinners Sunil Narine and Yasir Shah look formidable on paper but the duo have failed to spin the wen around their opposing batsmen and have seen their team falter match after match.
