Despite suffering a loss in their last league match against Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars (LAH) would not be as worried since they were devoid of the services of many of their key players in their last match. Courtesy of their brilliant performances throughout the course of the season, Qalandars finished the tournament as league leaders and will now take on Multan Sultans (MUL) in the first qualifier of the ongoing PSL 2023 on March 15 at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium.

Skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi is in phenomenal form at the moment and will be a key player for the side in the big match. He was rested in the last match and thus, will be fresh to take on Multan Sultans, who are yet to defeat Qalandars in the ongoing season. Meanwhile, with the bat, opener Fakhar Zaman is in tremendous form as the 32-year-old recently smashed a cracking century against Islamabad United. They have some veteran match-winners in the form of Sikandar Raza and David Wiese in the mix as well and thus, look ready to take on the Sultans.

Coming to the Mohammad Rizwan-led side, the team started the season well but won only two of their last five games. Their form against Qalandars this season is also a matter of concern but the good thing for the side is that they have enough quality to win the game and qualify for the finals.

Notably, opener Usman Khan is in sensational form at the moment, as the 27-year-old smashed 120 off 43 deliveries in the last match. Skipper Rizwan supported him well in the middle, scoring 55 off 29 deliveries. However, it is important to note that the surface in Gaddafi will not be as batting-friendly as it was in Rawalpindi. Thus, Sultans need to plan accordingly and put a decent score on the board to make it to the finals.

LAH vs MUL Probable Best Performers

Probable best batter

Mohammad Rizwan:

Stumper-batter Mohammad Rizwan is one of the most consistent players in world cricket right now. In the ongoing season, the opener has smashed 483 runs in ten matches courtesy of which, he currently is the leading run-scorer of the tournament. However, the qualifiers are a different ball game and thus, he might be under a lot of pressure but the 30-year-old has the ability to overcome those and once again reign supreme.

Probable best bowler

Rashid Khan:

The top-ranked Afghan spinner has taken 15 wickets from eight matches so far in the season and with that, he is currently the third-leading wicket-taker in the tournament. The 24-year-old has a lot of experience in playing these kind of big games and will be very crucial for the side against Multan Sultans.
