LAH Key Players
- Fakhar Zaman - The fact that Zaman could not get the Qalandars to a good start showcased their vulnerabilities against the Multan Sultans in the first postseason encounter. Given that the left-arm bastman will be expected to lead the batting troop, it will be interesting to witness how he builds his innings against the most attacking bowling unit.
- Shaeen Afridi - Possessing an economy rate of under 8.7 in PSL 2023, Afridi has taken 14 wickets and has caused immense trouble with the new ball.
- Rashid Khan - Arguably being the best spinner to have ever featured in the shortest format, Rashid’s performance could be the x-factor for LQ.
LAH Team Form
After topping the points table, the Qalandars have had struggles in their recent string of games as they have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
