Islamabad win toss, opt to field against Lahore in PSL 2019 opener

Islamabad United skipper Muhammad Sami-led won the toss and elected to field in the opening match of the much-awaited fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Dubai.
Mohammad Hafeez, the new captain of Lahore Qalandars, said that he will try his level best to turn the team’s fortunes in the tournament this time around.
Out of six matches, Islamabad won three matches while Lahore manages to win two and one resulted in a tie.
Qalandars will look on AB de Villiers, who is playing his debut PSL after retiring from international cricket for South Africa last year and Mohammad Hafeez, replacing former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum.
On the other side, Islamabad United, the winners of the 2016 and 2018 editions, also have a new captain in Mohammad Sami after they let go of Misbah-ul-Haq. Luke Ronchi, the most destructive batsman from last year’s PSL, will be back in action, as will a fit-again Rumman Raees.
Teams:
Islamabad United: Rizwan Hussain, Luke Ronchi (wk), Philip Salt, Hussain Talat, Cameron Delport, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Samit Patel, Mohammed Sami (capt.), Waqas Maqsood
Lahore Qalandars: Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez (capt.), AB de Villiers, Anton Devcich, Brendan Taylor (wk), Sohail Akhtar, Carlos Brathwaite, Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Rahat Ali
