Multan Sultans Vs Lahore Qalandars


The Qualifier 1 of PSL 8 is between Multan Sultans Vs Lahore Qalandars, The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is a professional Twenty20 cricket league in Pakistan. The 8th edition of the PSL will run from February 13th to March 19th, 2023.

Multan Sultans narrowly defeated Islamabad United to finish second and offer themselves the greatest chance of reaching the final. David Miller isn’t accessible tonight since he’s on foreign duty, but he did tell Danyal Rasool what made his time with Multan unique before he departed.

Qualifier 1 includes the two most consistent teams, Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans. The former is the squad to defeat, with a strong batting lineup and possibly the greatest bowling attack. The Sultans, on the other hand, have punched above their weight in multiple games and discovered new heroes across the board, none more so than Ihsanullah and Abbas Afridi, who has lit up the tournament with his blistering pace.

The victor of tonight’s game advances directly to the finals, while the loser will be given another shot when the winner of tomorrow’s game is determined. So there’s a lot to play for.

These Teams last met in the 20th match of PSL 8, where the Lahore Qalandars, under the captaincy of Shaheen Shah Afridi, won the match against the Multan Sultans with 21 runs. Both teams are strong, Lahore Qalandars have a won 2-matches this season against Multan Sultans winning streak of 2 matches this season, but the Sultans team has a strong batting lineup and is the 2nd best team of the tournament.

It will be a great competition between these two teams, lets see which team will qualify for the final of the tournament, will be a great fight tonight.

My prediction is that the Multan Sultans will win.

The Result ?

Multan Sultans Won by 84 runs.

In the Last match between these two teams Lahore Qalandars won by 21 runs.

That is a thrashing. Multan appeared to be destined for a low score when they bounced the ball around after opting to bat first, but Pollard’s half-century propelled them to 160. They performed an excellent performance with the ball, spearheaded by Sheldon Cottrell but supported by the rest of the assault as well. Lahore will have another chance to reach the final on Friday when they face the winner of tomorrow’s encounter between Islamabad and Peshawar.

Multan delivered an outstanding performance. They have reached their third PSL final in a row. It’s all hugs and handshakes now, even between Haris Rauf and Ihsanullah, who have reconciled. Yet it was far from that as tempers rose. It was a no-contest in terms of the competition.
