What’s My prediction (no Calculations Whatsoever Just my 6th Sense Lets see) ?

These Teams last met in the Final of PSL 8, where the Lahore Qalandars, under the captaincy of Shaheen Shah Afridi, won the match against the Multan Sultans with the barest of margins. Both teams are strong again this time. Lahore Qalandars have a 4-match winning streak, but the Sultans team has a strong batting lineup and is the best team of the tournament so far. After Lahore Qalandars, the openers like Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood start the batting for the Sultans.

My prediction is that the Multan Sultans will win.

The Result ?

Lahore Qalandars Won by 21 runs.

The Sultans got off to a good start thanks to Shan Masood and Rizwan, but that was the only time they seemed to be in contention. Usama Mir was moved up the order in front of batters like Rossouw and Miller after Masood was struck out in the seventh over of the match. That decision plainly backfired because the visitors kept losing wickets at vital times in the game because they were unable to maintain the steadily rising necessary rate.

Rashid Khan took three of the first five wickets and only gave up 15 runs in his four overs. The remaining bowlers made sure his efforts weren’t in vain, and Pollard’s late appearance only served to lessen the Sultans’ loss margin.
