Andre Russell broke Lahore Qalandars’ heart once again and guided Islamabad United to the victory in the 12th match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) third edition in Sharjah on Friday.

After being put into bat first, United managed to put 121 for the loss of nine wickets in tricky batting conditions.

All-rounder JP Duminy was the top scorer for United as he finished with 34 off 36 with the help of three fours and one six.

For Qalandars, leg-spinner Yasir Shah was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed three wickets.

In reply, once again Qalandars were on course for an easy victory, but another collapse where the team lost last eight wickets for just 44 runs took the match into the super over.

In super over, Qalandars post more than competitive total of 15 on the board. And in reply, United needed three off the final delivery. But then it was Russell’s show, as he stealth the show with a massive six to give his side second win of the tournament.
