Fantasy Cricket Tips: Top Picks

The likes of Mohammad Hafeez and Shahid Afridi will carry in a lot of experience for both the teams. Multan Sultans fancy quite a few T20 specialists in Moeen Ali and Ravi Bopara. Chris Lynn will be a major boost for the Qalandars at the top of the order.

Fantasy Cricket Tips: Expert Advice

While both the teams had a below-par season in the PSL 4, they would consider the first match as an opportunity to set the tone for the rest of the season. Based on the arsenal in their ranks, Lahore Qalandars might have an upper hand before the start of the clash but an otherwise result in a T20 encounter would also be no surprise.
