PSL 8 - Karachi Kings - Lahore Qalandars
It’s not the first time that the team at the top of the table meets the team at the bottom. It is also not unusual to see the favourites of the season aka defending champions get defeated by a team that is making its debut in the tournament. It’s cricket. Anything can happen.
Today’s match is between Karachi Kings - top of the table with two wins from two matches - and Lahore Qalandars - bottom of the table with two losses from two matches. Having said that, anything can happen.
Please note that Karachi Kings also defeated the defending Champions Peshawar Zalmi. But then so did debutant Multan Sultans.
Karachi Kings - many popular players. And most importantly, many inform players. That plays a key role. Colin Ingram. Ravi Bopara. Imad Wasim. T Mills.
And you have the reliable players. Shahid Afridi. Babar Azam. M Irfan.
Lahore Qalandars might have had a poor start to this tournament. But there are a few players that are bound to deserve a place in your Fantain Fantasy Lineup. Captain Brendon McCullum. Sunil Narine. Mustafizur Rahman. Fakhar Zaman. Umar Akmal.
Karachi Kings will not change their winning combination.
