LAH vs MUL, Match Preview
Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans begin the 2023 Pakistan Super League play-offs as they play in Wednesday evening’s Qualifier in Lahore. The Qalandars finished top of the group stage with 14 points but the Sultans were only two points behind with six wins from 10 fixtures. Lahore Qalandars have plenty of depth in their squad but we expect them to select their best XI for this match. If they play at their best they will be very hard to beat. Multan Sultans were involved in a remarkable game on Saturday which saw them defend their score of 262-3 by nine runs. With their batting line-up in excellent form, it will take a very good performance to beat them.

LAH vs MUL Qualifier Probable Winners:
The winner of this match will advance straight to Sunday’s final back at the Gaddafi Stadium. As a result, we expect both teams to go all out looking to win this play-off. Form-wise, Multan Sultans have been in better form and Lahore Qalandars will not be as much of a threat with the ball if Rashid Khan is unable to play. However, even without Khan, we still rate the bowling attack. Combined with the strong batters throughout the order, we are backing Lahore Qalandars to win. Considering the team combination, Lahore Qalandars is expected to win this match.
