IU vs LQ Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 15th match of PSL 2021.
The 15th match of the imminent second phase of the sixth season of the Pakistan Super League will be played between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars in Abu Dhabi today.
The match will kick-start the resumption of PSL 2021 after multiple delays due to logistical challenges. While the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) has managed to get things together to resume the tournament, they will now be working sincerely towards completing the tournament without any COVID-19 case emerging like what had happened earlier this year.
As far as the points table is concerned, Islamabad are at the third position on the back of three victories in four matches. Lahore, on the other hand, are a position lower at fourth due to a slight different in the net run rate. Otherwise, Qalandars have also won three and lost just one out of their four PSL 2021 matches.

The last time that Islamabad and Lahore had faced each other in the PSL was during a league match of the last season. After Lahore captain Sohail Akhtar won the toss and invited the visitors in to bat, Islamabad had posted a formidable 198/3 in 20 overs primarily because of a brisk 103-run opening partnership between Luke Ronchi (48) and Colin Munro (87*).
