MS vs LQ Match Prediction - Feb 13, 2023

PSL 2023 is back and we will have a repeat of last season's final to set us off. Lahore Qalandars, the defending champions will be taking on the Multan Sultans to start the season. Both these teams have been very consistent in the last couple of years in the Pakistan Super League but some team changes, injuries, and player unavailabilities could make this a tougher season for both of them. 

The Multan Sultans are being billed as the favorites by the leading cricket betting sites right now and have shorter odds but the Lahore Qalandars are certainly no pushovers. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars PSL 2023. The match will be played at the Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan on the 13th of February 2023. 

MS vs LQ Team Previews

Multan Sultans

The Multan Sultans have managed to keep the core of their team which has seen so much success in the previous few years. Not only did Multan win all but two of its matches in PSL 2022, but it has also managed to finish in the top-2 for the previous three seasons. 

Mohammad Rizwan is perhaps one of the most consistent batters in T20 cricket and will lead the batting once more. He has a lot of support in the batting department with players like Shan Masood, David Miller, Rilee Rossouw, and Tim David in the squad. 

They also have a good core of bowlers with Shahnawaz Dahani, Josh Little, Usama Mir, and Ammad Butt all available for selection. The template for the Multan Sultans is quite predictable. They expect Mohammad Rizwan to bat through and back their middle order to get the extra 15 runs needed in the end overs. This is then backed up by a pretty dependable set of bowlers. 

Multan Sultans Playing 11

Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Usman Khan, David Miller, Kieron Pollard, Khushdil Shah, Akeal Hosein, Usama Mir, Sameen Gul, Shahnawaz Dahani, Ihsanullah.

Lahore Qalandars

The Lahore Qalandars are the defending champions of the PSL and one of the best-run franchises in the competition. Their Player Development Program has been quite active and they have included a number of players from their program for PSL 2023 as well. 

When we speak of bowling quality, no team comes close to the Lahore Qalandars. They will be led by a fit-again Shaheen Afridi with support from Haris Rauf, Rashid Khan, David Wiese, Sikandar Raza, and Dilbar Hussain. There are no easy overs and the experience in this bowling lineup is immense. 

The batting has to revolve around Fakhar Zaman. He is easily the best T20 batter in the Qalandars lineup who also have Abdullah Shafique, Kamran Ghulam, Sam Billings, and the overseas all-rounders in their lineup. The loss of Harry Brook (international duty) is massive and could affect the balance of the squad. 

Lahore Qalandars Playing 11

Fakhar Zaman, Tahir Baig, Shai Hope, Kamran Ghulam, Hussain Talat, Sikandar Raza, Liam Dawson, David Wiese, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain forecast in Multan on match day. The temperatures will be quite comfortable to play in although dew might be a bit of a factor. The pitch in Multan is flat and good for batting. The average score at this venue is close to 170 but the PSL will be played in Multan after a gap of two years. 

We think the batters will enjoy the flat surface and the quick outfield. 

MS vs LQ Betting Tips

The Lahore Qalandars have a very strong bowling lineup and while they are missing a bit of batting strength, we still think they should be able to start with a win against the Multan Sultans. 

Bet on the Lahore Qalandars to win.
