KK vs LQ Match Analysis and Review:
Lahore Qalandars Fakhar Zaman, who has been out of form, can cost them the match. Whereas, Tamim Iqbal was going pretty fine until he faced the bad of his luck. Dunk – upon him the game relies on and Hafeez is in exceptional form for the last many games. Sohail Akhtar has to play his part whereas, David Weise has earlier won the matches for LQ with his match-winning sixes. They have the destructive Shaheen as their bowler who picks up the wickets at earliest. Samit Patel can deliver brilliancy too. Also, the youngster Haris Rauf can be prolific along with Weise and Dilbar Hussain.
Karachi Kings Pakistan’s new Captain Babar Azam looks in excellent form as we watched him play against Zimbabwe. Muhammad Rizwan, Imad Wasim, and Iftikhar Ahmed are also in their form they will be a huge support for the team. Karachi Kings are looking extraordinary and it will not be easy to beat a team with such extraordinary players by their side.to reach the final. However, a few of their players such as Sherfane Rutherford would have to look to a big score being a mid-over batsman.
