Karachi: Islamabad United qualified for the play-off stage of the Pakistan Super League 2019 with a dominant 49-run victory over Lahore Qalandars on Saturday at the National Stadium in Karachi.

The defending champions rode an unbeaten century from Cameron Delport and a six-for by Faheem Ashraf to outclass the Qalandars, whose own play-off hopes now rest on how Karachi fares in their remaining two fixtures.

The defending champions posted record 238 runs total courtesy Delport’s 117 runs off 60 balls with 13 boundaries and six sixes. Meanwhile, Asif Ali equaled Peshawar Zalmi’s Kamran Akmal’s record of the fastest half-century on 17 balls.
