Lahore Qalandars eliminated Islamabad United to play the final of PSL-7

 Lahore defeated Islamabad United by 6 runs to face Multan Sultans in the final on Sunday

Lahore Qalandars defeated Islamabad United by 6 runs in the 2nd eliminator to qualify for the final of PSL-7. David Wiese was the hero with both bowling and batting. His last-over heroics against Islamabad United take Lahore Qalandars to PSL 7 final.
It was a match full of twists and turns that thrills the capacity crowd at the Qaddafi stadium. Islamabad United was looking in driving seat till the 15th over of the match. Islamabad was needed  8 runs on 8 balls but it lost quick wickets and lost the match. 

David Wiese's three sixes and one four in the last over have helped Lahore Qalandars post a fighting 168-run total.  Lahore after deciding to bat first got off to the bad start as the in-form Fakhar Zaman was removed by Liam Dawson who bowled a brilliant new-ball spell.

After that, Abdullah with Kamran Ghulam forged a crucial 73-run stand for the third wicket to steer the inning against a good bowling attack of United. Ghulam rotated the strike to keep the scoreboard ticking, while Abdullah took the attack against the opponent bowlers as he notched three sixes and four fours in a 28 ball knock.

After Abdullah's dismissal by Waqas Maqsood, United got the dominant hand over Lahore as they made it difficult for their battles to carve out quick runs.

It was in the last over when Wiese went rampant against Waqas as he hit three sixes and one four to take Lahore to a fighting total against a power-packed United batting line-up

In terms of bowling, Dawson was brilliant with figures of 2-24 in four overs; Wasim also picked two, while Shadab and Waqas also picked one. Azam Khan scored 40 runs and Alex Hales 38 runs in the Islamabad United innings.
