Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction PSL- Lahore Qalandars v Multan Sultans
Multan Sultans ended the last season of the Pakistan Super League on a dismal note and looks like they have started similarly this year as well.
They have now lost six PSL games in a row. The last time Lahore Qalandars faced Multan Sultans, they won the match by six wickets.
Lahore Qalandars received disappointing news as their skipper Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out of the entire tournament due to a thumb injury. However, the good part for them is that they have somebody like AB de Villiers who will take over the captaincy reins and lead the team for the rest of the tournament.
In place of Hafeez, Agha Salman was drafted in the playing XI in the last match. The team has some class batters in Fakhar Zaman, AB de Villiers and Sohail Akhtar. Among the bowlers, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Rahat Ali will lead the way.
Multan Sultans dropped Johnson Charles, Hammad Azam, Chris Green and Junaid Khan for James Vince, Daniel Christian, Shakeel Ansar and Nauman Ali. They would be expecting skipper Shoaib Malik to go big once again. Malik has already smashed two half-centuries in three matches.
The other leading batters are Shan Masood, Laurie Evans and James Vince. The team has a good mix of players with Daniel Christian and Andre Russell in all-round slots. Among the bowlers, Mohammad Irfan and Shahid Afridi will be the major threats.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Lahore Qalandars- Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar, Anton Devcich, AB de Villiers (c), Brendan Taylor (wk), Agha Salman, Hardus Viljoen, Hassan Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Rahat Ali
Multan Sultans- Shan Masood, James Vince, Laurie Evans, Shoaib Malik (c), Daniel Christian, Andre Russell, Shahid Afridi, Shakeel Ansar (wk), Nauman Ali, Ali Shafiq, Mohammad Irfan
