Fakhar Zaman hit 66 runs in the first group stage game against Multan Sultans earlier in the tournament and the opener is well worth backing as Lahore Qalandars’ highest run scorer in this play-off match. Shaheen Shah Afridi has 14 wickets in the 2023 PSL and the left-arm quick is our tip for Lahore Qalandars’ top wicket taker on Wednesday.
Mohammad Rizwan is the leading run scorer in the competition and the keeper-batter is our pick for Multan Sultans’ highest run scorer in this match. Abbas Afridi has a strike rate of 8.9 with two four-wicket hauls and a five-wicket haul in this PSL. He is a strong choice for Multan Sultans’ top wicket taker against Lahore Qalandars.
Shaheen Shah Afridi took a five-wicket haul at this venue earlier in the tournament and we recommend backing him to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

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.

There will be at least one change to Lahore Qalandars’ XI ahead of this play-off match as skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi will come back into the team after being rested for the final group stage. It is likely that he will take the place of spinner Rashid Khan who had to retire with concussion in Sunday’s game.
LAH Key Players
Fakhar Zaman- the 32 year old opener has had an excellent PSL 2023. He has hit one hundred and two half-centuries across the tournament.
Haris Rauf- the right-arm fast bowler picked up another two wickets in the final group stage game. He comes into the play-offs with a strike-rate of 15.0 in the competition.
Shaheen Shah Afridi- the left-arm pace bowler will be fresh after missing the last match. His best figures this season are 5-40 and he will bowl with pace and accuracy on this pitch.
LAH Team Form
Lahore Qalandars finished top of the group stage with only three defeats. However, two of those defeats came in their last three matches.
With the Sultans looking to register their third successive victory, it would be a big surprise if there were any changes to their team for this game. The batting line-up is delivering and in Abbas Afridi, they have the most in-form bowler in the tournament.
MUL Key Players
Mohammad Rizwan- the skipper contributed another half-century in the last match. His strike rate of 189.65 in that fixture was up on his tournament strike-rate of 145.04.
Usman Khan- the 27 year old opener was at his best in Saturday’s game when he hit 12 fours and nine sixes on his way to 120 runs from 43 balls.
Abbas Afridi- the 21 year old medium fast bowler has been one of the stars of the competition. He comes into this game after taking 5-47 against Quetta Gladiators.
MUL Team Form
Multan Sultans lost three games in a row from the end of February to early March but have now won successive matches ahead of this fixture.
Who will win Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans T20 Match?
There is a huge amount of talent with bat and ball across both sides and this match could well be a rehearsal for the final. Overall, we think the Lahore Qalandars XI has more match-winners.
LAH vs MUL Top Team Batsmen
For Lahore Qalandars, we recommend Fakhar Zaman, Abdullah Shafique and Sam Billings as our batting tips. Shafique hit 48 runs in his only game against Multan Sultans in Match 20 earlier this month. Billings has scored over 5000 T20 runs across his career.
For Multan Sultans, Usman Khan, Mohammad Rizwan and Rilee Rossouw are our batting choices. Rossouw struck 121 runs from only 51 balls on March 10th. Rizwan has been in excellent T20 form for his country and for the Sultans for many years.
Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Zaman Khan are our picks with the ball for Lahore Qalandars. Khan bowls with real pace and has taken six wickets from his last three appearances in the PSL. Rauf has been one of the most consistent pace bowlers in T20 cricket over the last 12 months.
We are backing Abbas Afridi, Ihsanullah and Usama Mir as our bowling selections for Multan Sultans. Ihsanullah has picked up 20 wickets from 10 games so far across this tournament. Mir will get turn and bounce from this wicket and took 2-25 against Lahore Qalandars earlier in this PSL.
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.
