Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars Team Previews

Multan Sultans (Match Odds – 1.65)

Multan Sultans have won nine of the ten PSL 2022 matches they have played so far. So far, they’ve been outstanding with both the bat and the ball. Two of their batsmen (Shan Masood and Mohammad Rizwan) are among the top three run-scorers in the PSL 2022, while Tim David is the top six-hitter.

They also have Rilee Rossouw and Khushdil Shah in their lineups, both of whom have excelled at accelerating during the death overs and ensuring that the Multan Sultans are never short of runs.

If you take one match as an example, anything can happen, but there is no doubt that the Multan Sultans have more depth and power in their batting lineup than the Lahore Qalandars.

The Multan Sultans’ bowling attack isn’t bad, but it’s not the best we’ve seen in PSL 2022. Imran Tahir and David Willey have had some outstanding performances, but Shahnawaz Dahani and Rumman Raees have had a forgettable PSL season.

Interestingly, the slow wicket could work in favour of someone like Khushdil Shah, who has been picking wickets with ease all season!

Multan Sultans are the defending champions, with a winning percentage of 90% in PSL 2022. We believe they are currently available at a very reasonable price, which you should take advantage of.

Multan Sultans Squad

Shan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan (wk & c), Aamer Azmat, Khushdil Shah, Tim David, Rilee Rossouw, Asif Afridi, David Willey, Rumman Raees, Imran Tahir, Shahnawaz Dahani, Anwar Ali, Johnson Charles, Imran Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Blessing Muzarabani, Rizwan Hussain, Abbas Afridi, Ihsanullah

Predicted XI: Shan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Rilee Rossouw, Khushdil Shah, Tim David, Aamer Azmat, David Willey, Asif Afridi, Rumman Raees, Imran Tahir, Shahnawaz Dahani

Lahore Qalandars (Match Odds – 2.25)

This season, the Lahore Qalandars are the only team to defeat the Multan Sultans. The question now is whether they will be able to defeat them again. A couple of things work against the Lahore Qalandars. The first is that the Lahore Qalandars have lost two of their last three games, and the second is their reliance on Fakhar Zaman at the crease.

Fakhar Zaman stands head and shoulders above the rest as the PSL 2022’s leading run-scorer. However, if he escapes, the team could be in big trouble. We know what Harry Brook is capable of, and we know what Phil Salt is capable of, but the conditions are not to their liking.

We believe that if Fakhar Zaman leaves cheaply, the Lahore Qalandars will struggle to compete.

Rashid Khan has left the PSL to join Afghanistan’s national team, resulting in yet another significant loss of team strength. The Qalandars have brought in Fawad Ahmed, but he is nowhere near the same threat.

Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf can never be counted out, and they will end up carrying the majority of the burden with the ball.

The danger that the Lahore Qalandars pose is incredible, but the odds do not seem to justify the risk that you would have to take by betting on them.

Lahore Qalandars Squad

Fakhar Zaman, Philip Salt (wk), Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Harry Brook, Sohail Akhtar, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Fawad Ahmed, Zaman Khan, Samit Patel, Ben Dunk, Dean Foxcroft, Abdullah Shafique, Matty Potts, Mohammad Imran Randhawa, Maaz Khan, Akif Javed, Zeeshan Ashraf, Ahmed Daniyal, Syed Faridoun

Predicted XI: Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafique/Philip Salt, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohail Akhtar, Harry Brook, Fawad Ahmed, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi (c), Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan

To Win the Toss – Multan Sultans – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Lahore Qalandars – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

Lahore’s pitch has been high scoring, with batters consistently hitting 180+. The pitch has slightly better carry and pace, so batsmen may prefer it. We anticipate that the average score in this match will be around 170-180 runs.

Forecasters predict that Lahore will be bright and sunny, with only a 20% chance of rain. We don’t expect rain to appear in this game.

Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars Match Prediction

Multan Sultans’ openers have led their batting unit, and their middle order has the firepower to chase down or set up any total. They have a strong pace and spin attack with a wide range of options. The Lahore Qalanders have a strong batting lineup with experienced middle order players, but they lack the firepower of the Multan Sultans. Rashid Khan’s ability with the ball will be sorely missed. Multan Sultans are expected to win this match.

Multan Sultans is the favourite to beat Lahore Qalandars at the odds of 1.65.

  • Lahore Qalanders have 12 points in the league phase and are currently in second place.
  • Multan Sultans won the league with 18 points and finished first in the table.
  • This season, Lahore Qalanders are the only team to defeat Multan Sultan.
