PSL 2016 T20, Match 9: Islamabad United vs Lahore Qalandars – Key players

New Delhi: Islamabad United will battle it out against Lahore Qalandars in Match 9 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

Both teams have an identical record so far with two points from three matches played.

With plenty of match winners on either side, here are a few who could have a definitive say in this blockbuster clash.

Umar Akmal (Lahore Qalandars): The Pakistan batsman scored a blistering 93-run knock off just 40 balls in his last outing. The 25-year-old's ability to clear the ropes at will makes him one of the most dangerous batsmen in the tournament.

Andre Russel (Islamabad United): The West Indian all-rounder has already showed why he is so highly rated in this format. Russel has picked up four wickets and registered a 20-ball 35 in three games so far.

Star attractions

Chris Gayle: With scores of 6 and 0, the world's most destructive T20 batsman has been a disappointment so far. Yet he will remain the prized wicket for the Islamabad bowlers.

Shane Watson: IPL auction's most expensive buy is yet to make a mark for Lahore. However, all that the 34-year-old needs is one game to turn things around as he did in the 3rd T20I against India in the recent series.
