The Multan Sultans are being led by Mohammad Rizwan and the game will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium located in Lahore on Saturday. Let's take a close look at the weather report, betting tips, pitch report, and match prediction for this match. The Lahore outfit has been successful in justifying the hype surrounding them with four back-to-back victories to their credit. Their latest victory was against the team Quetta Gladiators in the 18th game of the PSL. They won this match by 17 runs and have accumulated 10 points so far in the competition and are occupying the top position in the points tally.

The supremacy established by Multan Sultans in the initial part of the competition was brought to an unexpected halt by the little-heralded Karachi Kings in the 14th game of the competition. They lost this game to Karachi by a big margin of 66 runs. The Multan batting order collapsed pretty badly however, the Sultans are a good team and they can still recover from this terrible beating to claim a position at the top of the points tally. But first, they will be looking to beat the in-form Lahore Qalandars team and reach the top position in the points table. They have managed to gather 8 points so far from 6 games in the competition.

LQ vs MS Team Previews

Lahore Qalandars

No injuries or absenteeism are affecting the Lahore Qalandars outfit at the moment. It is quite likely that the Lahore management will field the same side that won the 18th game of the competition. One of the key players for Lahore is Sikandar Raza. This all-rounder established how valuable he was to the side with both bat and ball in the 18th game of the tournament. He is going into this match on the back of a superb 71-run effort but he will face a lot stiffer opposition in this game against Multan.

The Afghan international star Rashid Khan has already established his credentials as a leading bowler for his team, especially in the middle overs. In the last game, he played he picked up a couple of wickets and gave away just 14 runs in the process from his quota of 4 overs. Haris Rauf is an experienced bowler from the Lahore line-up. He has already picked up seven wickets in the competition and is likely to pick up more while handling the new ball. the top batters for Lahore in this game are Fakhar Zaman, Sikandar Raza, and Tahir Baig.

The Lahore Qalandars openers have established how valuable they are by setting the tone for the remaining players from the team, Fakhar Zaman is the second-leading run-getter in the competition. Raza is another crucial member of the team giving them a good end to their inning. In their last game, the Lahore all-rounder Sikandar Raza single-handedly took the Lahore score to a respectable one. They ended up getting 148 runs from their 20 overs. The Lahore bowlers led by Haris Rauf and Rashid Khan did an excellent restriction job on Quetta to ensure that the team crossed the line with plenty to spare.

Lahore Qalandars Playing 11

Fakhar Zaman, Tahir Baig, Sam Billings, Abdullah Shafiq, Hussain Talat, Sikandar Raza, Rashid Khan, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan.

Multan Sultans

After having lost their last match, the Multan Sultans will be keen to make some significant changes to their side. There is every chance that they might bring in Kieron Pollard in place of Carlos Brathwaite in the playing eleven. The Multan Sultans is led by Mohammad Rizwan who is the leading run-scorer in this year’s version of the Pakistan Super League. The Sultans' team management will be hoping that the skipper will be all geared up for a big performance in this game against Lahore.

Rilee Rossouw is without a doubt one of the more destructive T20 batters in the world. He has established this fact over some time. However, Rilee Rossouw was not able to contribute too much to his team's cause in the last match as he was dismissed cheaply for 7 runs. A fast bowler from the Multan team Insanullah is the find of the 2023 PSL season. He is not just a young and coming fast bowler but has a lot of variations that can make him an awkward customer in the modern 20-overs-a-side format. In the 14th game of the competition, he picked up a couple of wickets.

After winning 4 games in a row, the Multan Sultans crashed to a hefty defeat in their last encounter against Karachi Kings. This meant that they had to relinquish their top position in the points tally and make way for Lahore Qalandars, their opposition in this match. The top and most significant batters for Multan going into this game are Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, and Rilee Rossouw. Out of these three, Rizwan and Rossouw are the leading run-getters for the Multan side while Masood has already displayed some glimpses of how dangerous he can be while opening the innings. 

Multan Sultans Playing 11

Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Kieron Pollard, Khushdil Shah, Anwar Ali, Usama Mir, Abbas Afridi, Sameen Gul, Ihsanullah.

If you look at the head-to-head between these two sides you will find that these two teams have a 50-50 record. Out of the 14 games played between the two teams, both teams have won 7 matches each.

They have also defeated the Multan side in the last couple of encounters. The Lahore Qalandars are entering this match with a better frame of mind having recorded a win in their last fixture.
