Today Match Prediction
Lahore Qalandars Preview:
Qalandars are still at the bottom-most position in the points table. As expected, LQ lost all of their matches except two. Lahore Qalandars is titled as the worst-performing team. As far as the earlier track record of Lahore Qalandars is concerned, they couldn’t be able to qualify for playoffs.
LQ lost their all matches in the current season. But in their last match, they turn things around in the batting after scoring 209 despite making only 60 in 1st 10 overs. They won a single match just because of Ben Dunk. He played exceptionally well and help his team to score 200+.
Check PSL Points Table
Lahore was kicked out of the trophy-race in previous seasons. They couldn’t play well in the previous season as well. They managed to win only 3 matches out of 10 in the 4th PSL addition.
Now in this season, Sohail Akhtar will be leading LQ from the front. Chris Lynn, Fakhar Zaman, Jaahid Ali and Salman Butt will also help to sustain the team. These changes may prove beneficial for Qalandars. They have to do a lot of work on their playing combinations.

Karachi Kings Preview:
The position of Karachi Kings is not improved. They are on the 4th position in the points table of PSL T20 2020. They have a net run rate of -0.196.
As far as the earlier track record of Karachi Kings is concerned, they couldn’t be able to win the PSL trophy in any of the previous seasons. They were kicked out of the trophy-race in eliminator rounds in previous seasons. Maybe this is the main reason that they have to make big changes in their squad and in the management team as well.
