After thrilling encounters in Karachi, the action moves to Lahore for the final phase of the tournament. Much like Karachi, Gaddafi also offers good balance between the bat and ball. An even contest is expected with the average score being 161 in the first innings and 143 in the second Innings.
The young wicketkeeper-batsman has been doing well for Multan Sultans in this tournament and will look to continue his glorious form against Lahore as well. He has got PPM of 41.14 in the tour.
The England all-rounder is doing a fantastic job for Multan Sultans with his brilliant all-round skills. With both the bat or ball, he is coming good on a regular basis for Multan. Thus, he is our must-have player in the side.
Samit Patel has become a key player for Lahore with his consistent performances. He has got a good PPM of 69.17 at this venue.
His form might have dipped in the recent past but he can be the x-factor of the team with his ability to deliver match-winning performances for his side. He will look to make a strong comeback against Multan Sultans.
