The Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023) is down to its summit clash. Multan Sultans (MUL) will be taking on Lahore Qalandars (LAH) in the Grand Finale at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Before the all important clash goes live let us look at some of the important stats, facts, the prime player picks and the best-predicted XIs for the fantasy contests of the match. 

Lahore Qalandars played great cricket in the league stage. They managed to win seven of their 10 matches and finished at the top of the table. But they faced a hiccup in their journey to the final when they were defeated by Multan Sultans in the Qualifier. It was a heavy defeat, but Shaheen Afridi and company recovered quickly and came back strong in the Eliminator 2.

In Eliminator 2, Lahore Qalandars faced Peshawar Zalmi. It was the last chance for both teams to make it into the final and the defending champions held their nerves at the crunch situation. The Qalandars chased down 172 runs in 18.5 overs losing six wicket and booked their berth in the Grand Finale of the tournament. 

Meanwhile, Multan Sultans led by Mohammad Rizwan have also played to the best of their abilities throughout the tournament. They managed to win six of their 10 matches in the group stage and finished in the second spot. 

In Qualifier 1, they emerged victorious against the defending champions and straight away qualifier for the final. 

The match that matters the most will be a chance for the Qalandars to redeem themselves from the last clash against the Sultans. The Sultans on the other hand, will try and prove that the win in Qualifier 1 was not a fluke. An exciting and mouth watering contest is on the cards.

MUL vs LAH, Final: Top Five Picks

  1. Mohammad Rizwan (MUL): The skipper of the Multan Sultans have been in brilliant form with the bat throughout the tournament. Rizwan has provided the team with solid starts for the entirety of the contest and the same will be expected from him on the BIG night. 
  2. Fakhar Zaman (LAH): The left-handed opener has been in great touch throughout the tournament. The fact that Fakhar Zaman failed to deliver in the last two important matches, makes it evident that he will be rearing to go big on the night of the final. 
  3. Rilee Rossow (MUL): The South African southpaw has delivered under crunch situations in the tournament. Rilee Rossouw will provide the dynamism to the Sultans top-order and will play a vital role in the fate of the team in the match.
  4. Rashid Khan (LAH): The Afghan superstar has been amongst wickets throughout this edition of the tournament. Stats give us an idea that Rashid Khan loves bowling in this tournament. A lot will depend on how the ball comes out of his hands in the final. 
  5. Abbas Afridi (MUL): Coupled with Ihsanullah, Abbas Afridi has been lethal with the ball in PSL 2023. Rizwan will hope that the duo does another magic in the summit clash.
