The PSL Cricket Win Tips provided by Premium Cricket, the Best for Cricket Betting Tips look what the two teams have done so far in the tournament and the possible outcome of this encounter. We would analyze whether Lahore Qalandars could produce a repeat performance and beat their rivals for the second time in the tournament or whether Multan Sultans will bounce back with improved performances.

 

Lahore Qalandars – key players

English wicket-keeper batsman Riki Wessels has joined the Lahore Qalandars Squad to replace the injured Ryan ten-Doeschate who did not travel to Pakistan due to an injury. Riki, the son of former South Africa and Australia Captain Kepler Wessels has emerged as one of the most successful T20 cricketers in the England county scene. The 33-year-old right-hand wicket-keeper batsman is a veteran of 204 T20s and has an average of 29.21 and a strike-rate of 137.55.

Lahore Qalandars have also confirmed the inclusion of Sri Lankan all-rounder Asela Gunaratne in the squad for the Pakistan-leg of the tournament. The 33-year-old right-hand middle-order batsman last played in a T20I in 2017 but has come back strongly with a series of good scores in the recent SLC Premier T20 Tournament while representing Army Sports Club. The other foreign players who have joined the Lahore Qalandars Squad includes Sandeep Lamichhane, David Wiese, Hardus Viljoen, and Anton Devcich.

In fact, 18-year-old Nepalese leg-spin sensation Lamichhane has turned out to be a revelation for Lahore Qalandars having captured a total of 11 wickets from his six matches so far. Meanwhile, uncapped right-arm fast bowler Haris Rauf also has claimed a total of 11 wickets from nine matches while the left-arm paceman Rahat Ali has 10 wickets to his name from seven games.

 

Multan Sultans – key players

After being knocked out from the playoffs earlier in the tournament, Multan Sultans will look to redeem their lost pride by recording a morale-boosting victory in their final outing of the league stage. The newest entrant to the PSL could not make an impact as they fell to the bottom of the points table despite a couple of superb individual contributions.

But the side lacked in teamwork and their bowling attack looked pretty ordinary which was one of the prime reasons for their downfall in the tournament. Incidentally, no bowler from the side was able to pick up more than 10 wickets this season with Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Ilyas, and Junaid Khan all claiming eight wickets each.

In contrast, their batting line-up was quite exceptional with Shoaib Malik and James Vince both scoring well over 200 runs in the tournament. Malik, the 37-year-old right-hander has emerged as their highest run-getter with an aggregate of 266
runs from nine matches at an average of 44.33 and a strike-rate of 116.15. In addition, Vince has an aggregate of 206 runs from seven outings at an average of 29.42 and a strike-rate of 141.09. Left-hand opener Umar Siddiq (156 runs) and West Indies’ wicket-keeper batsman Johnson Charles (167 runs) are the other leading run-getters in the Multan Sultans team.

 

The PSL Cricket Betting Tips

The PSL Betting Prediction on the possible outcome of the match is as follows.

This clash between the fifth and sixth-placed teams should turn out to be an exciting contest even though the final result will make no impact for the top four teams of the tournament. Even then, both Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans would love to finish off things on a high note as they look to at least salvage some of their lost prestige.
