Lahore Qalanders have started the season in superb fashion with 2 win in as many matches while Multan Sultans are not having a good time as they have lost both their matches they played so far. Lahore Qalanders will look to continue their winning streak and register a hat-trick of wins. Multan Sultans must stop their slide and resurrect their campaign with a win in this match. Both teams will look to get the better of the opposition and make early inroads in the points table.

Teams Preview

Lahore Qalandars Preview

Lahore Qalanders made short work of the massive 179-run chase with Fakhar Zaman (82* runs) and Mohammed Hafeez (72* runs) sharing an unbeaten 115-run partnership.  Earlier Sohail Akhter (21 runs) shared a 64-run partnership for the first wicket to set the platform for the team.

Pacers Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf took a combined tally of 4 wickets but gave runs at over 10 RPO in their 8 overs. Rashid Khan and Ahmed Daniyal controlled the run flow in the middle overs giving runs at less than 7.5 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Hafeez – Hafeez has scores of 73* & 33* in the two matches and he guided his team in the chase till the end. He is also effective with the ball with figures of 2-0-11-0 in a high scoring contest.

Rashid Khan – Rashid is their trump card with the ball in hand and he will look to get wickets in crucial moments and trouble the opposition batting line-up. He has just 1 wicket in 2 matches but is giving runs at less than 6 RPO so far.

Lahore Qalandars Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Chris Lynn, James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Sohaib Maqsood, Khushdil Shah, Shahid Afridi, Carlos Brathwaite, Sohail Tanvir, Usman Qadir, Shahnawaz Dhani

Multan Sultans Preview

James Vince stepped up his game in his second PSL game scoring 84 runs off 55 balls with 9 boundaries and 3 sixes. Mohammed Rizwan (41 runs) and Maqsood (36 runs) played good cameos to share 50+ partnership with Vince to take their team`s total to a massive 193 runs in 20 overs.

Their bowling unit failed to restrict the opposition despite a big score on board. Pacers Sohail Tanvir, Dhani, and Brathwaite gave away 40+ runs in the match and never troubled the opposition batsmen. Usman Qadir was the only bowler to have decent spell of 4-0-29-1 while Shahid Afridi too went for runs at nearly 10 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Mohammed Rizwan – Rizwan has scores of 41 & 71 in the two matches and is giving excellent tart to the team. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat in this match too.

Usman Qadir – Leggie Qadir has been impressive with the ball with his googlies and variations for the past 12 months. We expect him to continue his good form with the ball in this match too.

Multan Sultans Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Chris Lynn, James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Sohaib Maqsood, Khushdil Shah, Shahid Afridi, Carlos Brathwaite, Sohail Khan, Usman Qadir, Shahnawaz Dhani

Weather Conditions

Karachi will have bright and sunny weather on the match day and no rain or interruptions is expected as per the weather forecasters.

Venue Details

Karachi is becoming a high scoring venue as batsmen are getting used to it. Spinners might enjoy the slowness due to the used nature of the track. We expect the scores to be in the range of 170-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

All 5 matches in PSL has been won by the chasing teams so far. Bowling first after winning the toss is a no brainer in the upcoming matches.

LHQ vs MLS Winning Prediction

Lahore Qalanders will be high on confidence after chasing a big total in dominating fashion last night while Multan Sultans failed to defend a massive total last game.  Both teams have star players from both Pakistan and international teams in the fray. Lahore Qalanders have a slight edge in bowling department with experienced players like Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf and Shaheen Afridi who has performed well in different leagues. We expect Lahore Qalanders to win their third match on a trot.

Lahore Qalanders will win the match
