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

These Teams last met in the Final of PSL 7, where Lahore Qalandars Under the Captaincy of Shaheen Shah Afridi won the Match and the PSL 7 Title. Both teams are strong for this year PSL again, but much will obviously depend on the fitness level of Shaeen Afridi for the Qalandars is he fully fit for the whole tournament? The Sultans team has strong batting lineup where the openers likes of Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood starting the batting for the Sultans.

If we talk about Player of the Match, there are several match winners in both teams and the pitch may behave better for the batsman , so I think the POTM winner should be a batsman, and my prediction for POTM is from the chasing team , if Multan Sultans chasing then David Miller is my Pick , and if Lahore than Sikandar Raza .
