LAHORE: Lahore Qalandars gave up the match in final overs after dominating for  long as Islamabad United  successfully chased  a big total to secure  their second successive victory in three matches  in the fifth edition of  the Pakistan Super League here at the Gaddafi Stadium on Sunday night.

As happened in  previous editions, Lahore Qalandars again are proving to be unfortunate  losing both their matches  they so far played  in this tournament.

Chasing 183, the United completed their most sensational one-wicket victory with just one ball remaining.

However, their experienced cricketer Mohammad Hafeez failed to complete his maiden hundred in PSL and remained not out on 98.

He smashed seven sixes and hit as many fours during his 57-ball innings.

Earlier, Islamabad United captain Shadab Khan won the toss and decided to bowl first in the seventh match of the Pakistan Super League – 2020. 

Lahore Qalandars, the hosts, are playing their second match of the fifth edition in the tournament after they lost their first encounter to Multan Sultans by five wickets at their home ground on Friday.

On the other hand, Islamabad United have already played two matches – losing the first by three wickets to Quetta Gladiators on the opening day at Karachi and winning the second by a big margin of eight wickets against Multan Sultans at Lahore on Saturday. They have earned two points while Lahore Qalandars could not get any point so far.
