Defending champions Multan Sultans, who kicked off their campaign with a resounding victory in the season opener, are now set to lock horns with Lahore Qalandars (playing their first match this year). With Shaheen Afridi as captain and players like Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hafeez in the side, Qalandars will hope to pose a tough challenge to the Sultans, who are looking an extremely solid outfit this year as well, under the leadership of Mohammad Rizwan.
Among the wicketkeepers, Mohammad Rizwan is an obvious pick who started the season with a brilliant half-century. Shan Masood and Sohaib Maqsood also looked impressive in the first match and they could be interesting picks in batters, alongside Fakhar Zaman. While David Wiese and Willey will be the all-rounders to watch out for, there will be some star bowlers in action with the likes of Shaheen Afridi, Rashid Khan and Haris Rauf. Imran Tahir, who took a 3-fer in the last game, should be a certain addition in your fantasy side.
