The Pakistan Super League has just gone to a whole different level in the past few matches as the batsmen have come to terms with the conditions and are playing attacking cricket. The matches have got closer and it has been very exciting to watch.
The two teams that are playing this match are at opposite ends of the PSL 2021 League table. The Lahore Qalandars have won both their matches pretty convincingly while the Multan Sultans have lost both of theirs.
Multan Sultans had a real chance to win both of their matches but they cracked under the pressure. This match is very important for them as recovering from three losses in a row is going to be very difficult.
Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans PSL 2021 is going to be played at the National Stadium, Karachi on the 26th of February 2021.
We called the Lahore Qalandars the best bowling attack in PSL 2021 before the tournament began and they have lived up to that reputation so far. From this match, though, they are going to be without Rashid Khan who not only bowled very well but also played a crucial role in the lower order.
Joe Denly may be a like-for-like replacement for Rashid Khan. While he is not the same class as Rashid Khan, Samit Patel also bowls spin and can bat usefully down the order.
Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Samit Patel, and Ahmed Daniyal were a part of the bowling attack in the previous match with David Wiese chipping in as well. There does not seem to be any need ot change that for this match.
The Lahore Qalandars would be a little concerned with their batting. Mohammad Hafeez and Fakhar Zaman played brilliantly in the previous match and covered up some of the weaknesses.
With Sohail Akhtar out of form and Fakhar Zaman, not the most consistent, it appears just the wicket of Mohammad Hafeez is holding the Lahore Qalandars together. Agha Salman, Ben Dunk, Samit Patel, David Wiese, and possibly Joe Denly don’t inspire a lot of confidence.
They can bat, sure, but they are not in their choice of conditions and could struggle under pressure.
Ben Dunk, Fakhar Zaman, Joe Denly, Sohail Akhtar, Mohammad Hafeez, D Wiese, SR Patel, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Salman Mirza, Ahmed Daniel.
The Multan Sultans scored 193 in their previous match thanks to a brilliant inning from James Vince but could not get over the line. Surely the poor form of Sohail Tanvir is becoming a problem for the team now. He gave away 40 runs in his three overs and just could not be trusted to execute his plans with any sort of consistency.
Shahnawaz Dhani may have gone for runs in his last over but there is no doubt this man is built for international cricket. He fires in fast yorkers at will and has a great change-up as well. Shahid Afridi bowled well and we were very happy to see Usman Qadir in the lineup as well.
Carlos Brathwaite had an off night and is another weak spot in the bowling attack.
Expect a couple of changes in the bowling attack.
The batting lineup is very strong for the Multan Sultans. Mohammad Rizwan is in great form, James Vince is scoring runs, and Rilee Rossow is a clean hitter of the ball as well. Even Sohaib Maqsood struck the ball cleanly in the previous match and will be full of confidence coming into this match.
The only disappointment so far has been Chris Lynn. His ability to strike the ball is well-known but he has not been able to get a hang of the conditions so far. He should be able to continue to get some more leeway on the basis of his reputation, though.
The Multan Sultans are struggling for balance in their bowling lineup and could be forced to make changes coming into this match. Not the best position to be in and makes them all the more unstable.
Mohammad Rizwan, Chris Lynn, James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Sohaib Maqsood, Khushdil Shah, SMSK Afridi, Carlos Brathwaite, Usman Qadir, Sohail Khan, Shahnawaz Dhani.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Every single match of PSL 2021 so far has been won by the team that has chased. No question about it, winning the toss is a huge advantage and must be taken into account while placing your bets.

The pitch in Karachi seems to have become better to bat on in the previous few games. Scores have gone past 190 and almost 400 runs have been scored in the previous two matches. Hopefully, this trend will continue and we get to see more exciting batting.
The bowlers have something to work with in the first inning but it is clear that the dew makes it harder for the team that is bowling second.
A score of around 180 should be seen as par batting first but it is by no means a winning total as we have seen already.

The toss plays a huge role in the outcome of the matches but that is not something we know about right now. Considering the strength of the batting in the Multan Sultans lineup, the absence of Rashid Khan from the Lahore Qalandars, and the shift of the pitch towards one that favors the batsmen, we are going to back the Multan Sultans in this match.
Bet on the Multan Sultans to win.
Our Favorite Bets
There is no doubt that the top-3 of the Lahore Qalandars is very strong. The Multan Sultans have an out of form Chris Lynn at the top who has been getting out quite early. Also, The Lahore Qalandars have Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf to lead the attack, both of whom are very capable of picking up early wickets.
We rate Sohaib Maqsod pretty highly and think he is unlucky not to be a part of the Pakistani team right now. He has a very good ability to strike the ball cleanly and can clear the boundaries pretty regularly as well.
He played very well in the previous match and we have a feeling he is only going to go from strength to strength now. Get behind him and get paid!
