Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans will be head to head in the 29th match of PSL4 which is to be played at National Stadium Karachi, currently, both the teams are at the bottom most of the points table. Both the teams are already out of the playoffs after Karachi won a thriller against Quetta last night.
Multan Sultans have nothing to lose now, therefore it is their best chance to end their journey on a high note. They have barely managed to win any match in the league and have badly disappointed their fans. It will be crucial for them to give some amount of bliss and hope before they bid the tournament farewell.
Qalandars who were being pinned as the top contenders of the tournament once again failed and are also out of the tournament. Untimely injuries of Hafeez, Brendon Taylor, and AB hurt the team badly resulting in successive losses. Despite the presence of power hitter Fakhar Zaman and Sohail Akhtar, the Qalandar clan has not shown fireworks in any recent match. They even lost their previous match from Islamabad United where they failed to chase 239 runs. Winning their last league match would be vital for them.
Let’s have a look at the playing XI of both the teams for Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans clash:
- Fakhar Zaman (c)
- Sohail Akhtar
