Qalandars will be taking on Islamabad United at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on June 9. They are currently placed fourth on the points table with three wins from four games.

Out of four games Dunk played before PSL was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, he scored 90 runs from three innings including an unbeaten 57 against Karachi Kings. His half-century helped Qalandars chase down a total of 187 and register a convincing win against Karachi Kings.
