MS vs LQ Match Analysis and Review:
Although the batting line collapsed earlier for Sultans when they took of Karachi Kings in the qualifier round, it was probably due to the slow pitch of KK with naked patches across the ground.
The openers Adam Lyth and Zeeshan Ashraf can be destructive at times as Multan Sultan (MS) has been outstanding throughout the tournament for a reason. They choose the perfect playing XI to stay on the top.
Masood, to decide MS fate, would try every of his trick to drag the team and on the other hand, Bopara was already dominant. Khushdil’s batting was recently spotted in the lastly held matches. Their bowlers, Afridi being the leg-spinner, Sohail Tanvir who was a dominant and economical one, Imran Tahir enjoying bowling, However, Irfan gave 22 runs in 11 overs, he might be replaced with Junaid.
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 upon 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.
