LAH vs KAR Prediction: Teams representing two of the most iconic cities of Pakistan- Lahore, and Karachi will lock horns with each other in the final of the PSL 2020. Lahore is a well-balanced side than Karachi, and they have fought their way into the finals. A win would mean a lot to them, as they are one of the most under-achieved teams in the history of the tournament. On the other hand, Karachi has something big to play for. They would be hoping to finish their 2020 season on a high by lifting the trophy as a tribute to their late coach Dean Jones.
Lahore Qalandars vs Karachi Kings
Pakistan Super League 2020, Final
Date & Time: 17th November 2020 at 8:30 PM IST
National Stadium, Karachi, Pakistan
Bet365: KAR- 1.72, LAH- 2.10
Betway: KAR- 1.72, LAH- 2.00
Team batting second to win this match
Qalandars are a better-balanced team than the Karachi Kings. The only chance by which the Kings can topple the Qalandars is by chasing down the total set by them, on the back of Babar Azam and co. But that too seems less likely to happen considering the bowling lineup of the Qalandars. But if they are to bat second, then the dew might help them on the way to their maiden title. So team batting second is expected to win this match as per LAH vs KAR today match prediction.
So if you are in for online cricket betting for PSL, place your money on team batting second.
Head to Head (overall)
Head to Head (In Pakistan)
Both teams haven’t faced any defeat since the restart of the tournament on November 14th. Hence they are not expected to make any changes to their eleven. Expect the same players who played the playoffs to step onto the field in the finals as well.
LAH Playing XI: Fakhar Zaman, Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Hafeez, Sohail Akhtar, Ben Dunk, Samit Patel, David Wiese, Muhammad Faizan, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Dilbar Hussain
KAR Playing XI: Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam, Alex Hales, Chadwick Walton, Iftikhar Ahmed, Sherfane Rutherford, Imad Wasim, Wayne Parnell, Mohammad Amir, Arshad Iqbal, Waqas Maqsood
The pitch in Karachi has proven to be good for batting. With the pitch offering something to the pace bowlers, an even contest between bat and ball is expected. That being said, there are chances of dew in the second half of the match and hence chasing is preferred to take advantage of the conditions at stake. So captain who wins the toss should ideally opt to field first.
If Karachi Kings bat first: 150-160
If Lahore Qalandars bat first: 170- 180
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction
KAR- Babar Azam
Nobody is as consistent as Babar when it comes to T20 cricket. With 1179 runs he leads the chart of the highest run-getters in T20 cricket in 2020. To add to that he is also the leading run-scorer in this edition of the PSL by a mile. As for cricket betting tips, he is the sure-shot man to invest your money in.
LAH- Mohammad Hafeez
The Pakistan veteran is a trustable option when it comes to T20 cricket. Ever since being pushed to the top of the batting order, he has been racking up tons of runs. Expect him to play his best game in the finals.
Other suitable options: Alex Hales, Fakhar Zaman, Tamim Iqbal
KAR- Mohammad Amir
Amir is currently out of the national set up. But he showed his class in the super over against Multan Sultans a few days back, where he nailed Yorkers consistently. He is the Karachi bowler worth investing your money in.
LAH- Shaheen Afridi
He is the most dangerous of the strong pace attack that the Qalandars have got. He is also amongst the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. Expect him to turn the match in favour of his side by taking some early breakthroughs.
