Lahore Qalandars are yet to lose in the tournament but getting past Multan Sultan won’t be easy. Yes, Multan have lost both their match but that doesn’t take away the quality from the side. Also, they haven’t been that bad. The matches they lost could have gone either way. Their batting looks scary. Mohammed Rizwan is in middle or a dream run. Chris Lynn, James Vince, Riley Rossouw, Shahid Afridi, Carlos Brathwaite are good enough to give a nightmare to any opposition. Lynn was in fine form in the Big Bash League and will eager to set the stage on fire. James Vince was also in red hot form against the Peshawar Zalmi and stroked a brutal 84. They look a complete team with Sohail Tanvir, Usman Qadir, Shahid Afridi, Shanawaz Dhani to complement the batting.


Lahore Qalandars were at the top of their game against Quetta Gladiators and thrashed them by 9 wickets. Fakhar Zaman looked flawless and stroked a magnificent 82. Mohammed Hafeez too continued his golden run and mauled the Quetta bowlers in a fiery knock of 73. Sohail Akhtar, Ben Dunk, David Wiese Samit Patel adds a lot of quality in the team. Though Rashid Khan won’t be available, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf and the all rounders make them a quality bowling side.To be fair, there is not a lot to choose between the two teams and the match promises to be an enthralling encounter.

Key Players:

Mohammed Rizwan – Mohammed Rizwan has been in prime form of late.  Match after match, he delivered consistent performances. He started his campaign with a solid 71 against Islamabad and then backed it up with another decent knock of 41 against Peshawar. 

Chris Lynn – Chris Lynn is one of the greats in this version of the game. On his day, he's a nightmare for any bowling lineup. He was in fine form in the Big Bash League and can be expected to perform well in the PSL as well.
