LAH vs MUL, Qualifier 1: Top Five Picks

  1. Mohammad Rizwan (MUL): The skipper of the Multan Sultans' team has been in brilliant touch with the bat. Mohammad Rizwan has been consistent and has carried the team ahead on his shoulders. Rizwan will be a very important pick for this match. 
  2. Fakhar Zaman (LAH): The left-handed opening batter has been scoring runs consistently in this tournament. Zaman can hold the innings together and have a match-winning impact on the game. He will be a crucial pick for this match. 
  3. Rilee Rossouw (MUL): The South African batter started the tournament off with a blast. Rilee Rossouw failed to hold onto the momentum and make it into a massive season but has been decent enough throughout. 
  4. Rashid Khan (LAH): The Afghan superstar has been on song in his man trade in this tournament, i.e., bowling. But the fact that he can be a handy batter in the lower order makes him a very crucial pick for this match. 
  5. Abbas Afridi (MUL): Abbas Afridi has been one of the pillars of Multan's good show in PSL 2023. He has been amongst the wickets regularly and has helped his team to emerge with flying colours from crunch situations. Afridi might turn out to be game-changing pick for this match.
