MS vs LQ Match Prediction
This match is against the best bowling team vs the good batting unit. Qalandars have an advantage of winning the Final last time but Sultans will enjoy the home advantage. Toss can play a very crucial role tonight as we expect the team to bat 1st whoever wins the toss and put up a good enough score on board. Our cricket odds suggest Multan Sultans win tonight as they possess many of the fantastic players who are in brilliant batting form along with Qalandars missing some of their key players like Rashid Khan who will join them in coming matches.
Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Rizwan, and David Miller are the key players who you should have in your fantasy teams or bet on for winning exciting cash rewards.
