Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars Preview

  • Lahore Qalandars have one of the most threatening bowling lines in the Pakistan Super League 2023.
  • The Multan Sultans are a talented, evenly-matched team that has had great success in recent years.
  • Over the last few seasons, Lahore Qalandars have had a slight advantage in their rivalry with Multan Sultans.


In the first game of the Pakistan Super League 2023, Multan Sultans will face the defending champions, Lahore Qalandars. The Multan Sultans will try to avenge their final-season loss to the Qalandars, who denied them a well-deserved crown. Both teams have kept significant players from last season, and we anticipate a close game between two of the top teams.

Multan Sultans have won four of the last six encounters between the two teams. It will boost their self-esteem. They had only lost twice in their previous 12 games, and the players worked well together. The Qalandars will not make it easy for themselves as they defend their title. It will be a close race, with some of the tournament’s greatest players disputing in the middle.

The 2023 PSL season will begin on the same note as the previous one, with the Multan Sultans facing the Lahore Qalandars in a rematch of last year’s final. The festival is scheduled to take place on February 13th at the Multan International Cricket Stadium.

Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

The match will not be hampered by rain because the sky will be clear, and the temperature will range between 28 and 26 degrees. During the game, the humidity will range from 20 to 26%.

Because this pitch is sluggish and has historically made it difficult for the team batting second to chase the target, both captains will look to bowl first.

This pitch is sluggish and provides no advantage to pacers. The spinners, on the other hand, benefit from the uncertainty of turn and bounce.

Multan Sultans Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The availability of Rilee Rossouw and Josh Little for the first game of the PSL 2023 will be questionable because both players will be with the Pretoria Capital until February 12th. With Shan Masood batting at No. 3, Usman Khan might lead the batting attack.
