Lahore registered a scintillating victory as they beat Islamabad United by runs in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7. Lahore Qalandars are now only two points behind Multan Sultans in the PSL points table while Islamabad remain third with two wins and two losses in their first four matches.
Lahore got off to a flyer at National Stadium Karachi as they took the Islamabad bowling attack to the cleaners in the early stage of their innings. Shadab Khan and Mubasir Khan choked the Lahore batting unit in the middle phase of the innings as Lahore crumbled under pressure. They did make a comeback of their own in the backend of the innings and managed to score a respectable 174/9.
Islamabad United were comfortable throughout their run-chase as Shadab and Colin Munro struck brilliant half-centuries. But Lahore made another comeback in the field at the latter part of the innings and restricted the explosive Islamabad batting unit to win the match by 8 runs.
