The world will finally witness a new PSL champion with Karachi Kings taking on Lahore Qalandars for the title. The match will be played on the National Stadium Karachi and is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM local time
So we’re down to the final match of Pakistan Super League and what a tournament it turned out to be. Whether it’s Karachi Kings or Lahore Qalandars, both teams thoroughly deserve to win the title. But who’s the favourites to win the match ? – I would say both teams have an equal chance of winning the title. Yes, look at their team, both Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars are laced with some of the best players in this format. Whether it’s their batting or bowling, there is quality all around. Karachi Kings defeated Multan Sultan in the first qualifier but looked a little rusty. Apart from Babar Azam, none looked comfortable with the bat. Their bowling did well but against Lahore, they need to bring out their A game.
Lahore Qalandars on the other hand delivered a completed performance against Multan Sultan in the eliminator to march into the PSL final. All of their batsmen looked in decent touch in the match. Tamin Iqbal and Fakhar Zaman got runs at the top, Mohammed Hafez looked good in the brief innings of 19, runs from Samit Patel and David Wiese shows the depth of their batting.With Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, David Weise and Mohammed Hafeez, they’ve a quality bowling line up that will pose a stern challenge for Karachi Kings. If Lahore can pick up Babar Azam early, they’ll have a big chance of winning the match.
