Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans – Team News
The Lahore Qalandars have a great success story in seamer Haris Rauf, who made a name for himself with some star performances for the Melbourne Stars in Australia’s Big Bash League recently. He’s back with Lahore now – and ready to continue that success. They have also recruited Australian big-hitter Chris Lynn and have West Indian batsman Lendl Simmons among a wealth of homegrown talent. Former national captain Salman Butt and young left-arm seamer Shaheen Afridi are key to Lahore’s local contingent.
The Multan Sultans will be captained by batsman Shan Masood this year. He will be accompanied by South Africa’s Rilee Rossouw and England trio James Vince, Ravi Bopara and Moeen Ali in a power-packed batting order. The presence of world-renowned leg-spinner Imran Tahir really sets their bowling resources apart from the rest, while left-arm seamer Junaid Khan will be looking to reignite his international career with a solid showing in the Pakistan Super League 2020.

Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans – Betting Tips and Prediction
Despite the Qalandars’ poor record in the PSL and the fact that the Multan Sultans are the newest to the tournament and therefore have the briefest history, they are both big features in PSL betting tips and predictions about the results of cricket matches.
David Wiese to put in an all-round showing for Lahore
All-rounder Wiese has been lost to South African international cricket for several years now, but remains a global T20 asset in England and other parts of the world – currently Pakistan. He bats, he bowls and he is a good fielder. Most recently, the Cumilla Warriors benefitted from his all-round aspirations – and now it’s the Lahore Qalandars’ turn. He has a cheeky knack for performing abroad. Backing Wiese to be Lahore’s top batsman at 11.00 with bet365 is not necessarily a long shot, especially if they deploy him up the order. Wiese is also offered at 6.50 to be the franchise’s top bowler in this match with that effective seam of his.
Mooen Ali to be named Man of the Match
England’s Ali was recently named captain of the Birmingham Phoenix for The Hundred later this year. He has just come off a superb T20I series against South Africa and is primed to keep playing well for the Multan Sultans. Moeen is tipped to be the Sultans’ top bowler at 6.00, top batsman at 4.50 and Man of the Match at 10.00 by bet365. Betting on Moeen Ali in one, two or all three of these markets could work really well.
Best Bet: Moeen Ali to be Man of the Match with bet365 at 10.00
