Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars Betting Tips 05/02/2022

The 12th fixture of the Pakistan Super League 2022 sees Islamabad United take on Lahore Qalandars at National Stadium Karachi on Feb 5 (Saturday). The match is to begin at 3 pm IST.

Teams Status

Islamabad United

After copping their first loss of the season in the game against Multan Sultans, Islamabad United bounced back against Quetta Gladiators in a high-scoring encounter.

The two-time former champions amassed the tournament’s highest score (229-4), thanks to half-centuries by Paul Stirling (58), Colin Munro (72*), and Azam Khan (65).

The Gladiators had a decent start but once the first wicket fell, Islamabad United bowlers took over, and then there was only going to be one winner. Shadab Khan, fresh from a 91 the other day, had a five-for this time.

On current form and what we’ve seen so far, Islamabad are part of a trio that seems to be genuine contenders, with Multan and Lahore being the other two. This much is evident from the points table but also the eye test.

Lahore Qalandars

Like Islamabad United, Lahore Qalandars too have won two of their three matches and lost only to Multan Sultans.

They opened the tournament with a slim defeat to the defending champions but then notched impressive wins over Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi.

That second win over Zalmi came despite the Qalandars dropping as many as six catches in what was easily the worst display of fielding by any team in the tournament so far.

Lahore are benefitting from the rich vein of form of Fakhar Zaman, who now has a century and two half-centuries in three outings. His reputation of being a slow start has now started to diminish.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Lahore Qalandars to win @ 1.99

There is very little to choose between these two sides. Both have powerhouse batters on their roster, although Islamabad might have a slight edge. On the other hand, we’d take Lahore bowling over Islamabad as they boast names such as Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Rashid Khan. The balance is almost the same and when that’s the case, it makes sense to pick the side with higher odds, which is Lahore. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Fakhar Zaman to score more than 25.5 runs @ 1.87

We’re not going to stop betting on Fakhar Zaman if he is not going to stop scoring big runs. The man is on a roll and finds batting very easy, which is very unlike him. Islamabad do have quality bowling but we think making the 25.5-run spread won’t be too difficult for someone in his kind of form. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Islamabad United have dominated this fixture in recent years but Lahore are now one of the better sides in the competition and nothing like the punching bags they used to be. They can use a few more wins over Islamabad starting from this game.
