Lahore Qalandars has been one of the most consistent teams this season. They have the perfect team combination of experienced and young talent in their playing squad. This has been a successful season for Qalandars until now and they would want to continue this momentum to the end of the season.

The presence of quality batsmen such as Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez makes this team’s batting unit strong. Both the batsmen have been in excellent form and have regularly scored runs for their team. Captain Sohail Akhtar will have to step up and start scoring runs for his team to reduce the pressure of scoring runs on the other batsmen. Agha Salman, Ben Dunk and Samit Patel form the middle order of this batting unit.

The combination of Rashid Khan and Shaheen Afridi gives the required strength to Qalandars’s bowling unit. Shaheen Afridi has claimed 9 wickets in 4 matches with an economy of 7.06. He is also the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far. Haris Rauf, Ahmed Daniyal and David Wiese have been effective with the bowl and have supported the bowling unit for Qalandars.

Kamran Akmal will play an important role in this batting unit due to his ability to score runs with a high strike rate. Sherfane Rutherford and Imam-ul-Haq add to the strength of this batting unit.
