LAH vs ISL Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: PSL 2023 Match 16 | LQ vs IU Dream11 Prediction Today | Lahore Pitch Report

Match 16 of PSL 2023 promises to be a blockbuster. Two in-form sides – especially with the bat – do battle in what could be a high-scoring classic for the chance to move to the top of the table.

Islamabad United’s net run rate of 1.049 is reflective of their dominance at times. In their three wins so far this season, they have scored at a rate of 10.49, with Azam Khan’s incredible 42-ball 97 the highlight of their thumping win against Quetta in their last match.

However, today is a different test. Shaheen Shah Afridi is displaying some of his best form once again, with the delivery to dismiss Babar Azam yesterday a thing of beauty. Also, Lahore’s batting will be a test of Islamabad’s attack, with Fakhar Zaman (96 off 45 balls) also coming into this match in imperious form.

Match Details

  • Location: Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
