Islamabad has finished their last tournament as Winners of the competition and Qalandars has finished at last will take on against each other in the first match of the PSL4.

Strangely Islamabad is the most successful team and Lahore is the worst team of the League so far and finished all the seasons as last team in the tournament.

As history there is easy to predict the winner but history itself suggest that records are meant to be broken, we don’t know when it will turn off and against which, this time they have arrange well balanced squad in the shape of Ab De Villiers , Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Afridi as their main pillars.

On the other hand United will miss the leadership of Misbah this time but still they have a well balanced team in the shape of Luke Ronchi, Shadab, Fahim and Asif Ali who are their main players.

Islamabad: Luke Ronchi and Farhan Sahabzada will open the innings following by Hussain Talat, Delport and Asif ali in middle order, Salt will be as middle order and after that they might bring three all-rounders in the team as Shadab Fahim and Samit Patel  along Muhammad Sami and Rumman Raees and Parnell as their fasters

Lahore: Fakhar Zaman and Sohail Akhtar/Ashton  may open the innings along Muhammad Hafeez and Ab De Villiers following by Haris Sohail in the middle order, Bairthwaite or Wiese will be seen as an all_rounder, one wicket keeper to be followed by Rahat Ali, Aizaz Cheema and Villjoen as fasters by followed Sandeep as spinner.

Predictions

If we see the teams on the paper, Lahore has dangerous squad this time and have capability of beating any team in this league but not sure about the United as their middle order looks very weak as we have been suggested by the squad chosen by the team management.

Islamabad United wins the toss will chose field first and will restrict Qalandars aound 170 and will lose the match by 20_30 runs.

Qalandars wins the toss will chose field first and will restrict Islambad under 160 runs and will chase it down by 6 wickets.
