Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars: Match Preview:

Multan Sultans skipper Mohammed Rizwan was in excellent form in PSL 7, scoring 546 runs in 11 innings and winning the Player of the Tournament award. Multan’s batting will be further enhanced by Shan Masood and Khushdil Shah, along with foreign players David Miller, Rilee Rossouw, and Tim David.

West Indian left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein is the top T20 wicket-taker among the Multan Sultans bowlers with 44 wickets and will lead the spin group. Adil Rashid will also join the team with his broken leg along with 19-year-old Afghan Izharulhaq Naveed. The fast bowling power of the Multan Sultans also looks formidable with the likes of Shahnawaz Dahani, Wayne Parnell, and Josh Little along with Kieron Pollard.

For Lahore Qalandars, Fakhar Zaman was the top scorer last season with 592 runs at an average of 45.5 and 153.4. Harry Brook is also a strike force for the Qalandars. However, the rest of the at-bat looks a bit weak in terms of experience. Abdullah Shafique and Kamran Ghulam along with Liam Dawson and David Wiese don’t have very impressive numbers at bat so far, apart from Wiese’s batting rate of 184.4.

On the other hand, the bowling will be led by Pakistan ace and Lahore captain Shaheen Afridi who has 53 wickets in PSL including 20 wickets in PSL 7 where he also led the team to the title. Haris Rauf will also further strengthen the bowling, with 36doorss to his name in PSL. Dilbar Hussain, Zaman Khan, and Ahmed Daniyal are the other pacemakers on the team, along with David Wiese and Hussain Talat.
