The fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League lights up as the tournament will get a new winner on Tuesday. Karachi Kings are taking on their biggest rival Lahore Qalandars in the big final of PSL 2020 in Karachi. Karachi Kings won a thrilling Super Over in the Qualifier against the table toppers, Multan Sultan, and reached the PSL Final.
Mohammad Amir and Babar Azam’s performance made them through to their first PSL Final. Karachi restricted Multan at 141 in 20 overs and was comfortably chasing the target till Babar was in the middle. However, after a minor collapse, it was Imad Wasim’s 27 runs which pushed the game into the Super Over. Overall, Karachi has a good combination of local players and is expected to maintain the same XI for the final. They have a good record against Lahore with six wins in ten games and are expected to continue their domination to win the title.
On the other side, Lahore Qalandars are in superb winning form as they reached the PSL Final after being qualified for their first playoffs. It was all about the David Wiese show which steered Lahore to a 25 run victory over Multan Sultans in Eliminator 2. They have a good batting depth with some serious quality in their pace attack. They have reached the final for the first time and are believed to win the tournament. With the advantage of playing an extra match, Qalandars will be very hard to defeat in the big final on Tuesday.
