Editor’s Pick (PSL T20): Multan Sultans - Lahore Qalandars

Having won four out of seven matches, Multan Sultans are on top of the table with 9 points (one abandoned match too). They meet Lahore Qalandars today. Who has played and lost all six matches. Need I even say more about the two teams.

Multan Sultans
No big changes expected. And rightly so. If you have won good points in matches played by Multan Sultans, you might as well stick to the same players. Watch out for Tanvir and Irfan. They might be rested.
