PSL 2020: 3 reasons why Lahore Qalandars will be the favourites to win
In-form bowling attack
 
Qalandars’ bowling department has been in great form, especially in the playoffs. In their previous match against Sultans in the qualifier 2, David Wiesse and Haris Rauf both chipped three wickets each, while Shaheed Afreen and Dilbar Hussian shared two-wickets between them. This could be a big difference between the two sides. If the four bowlers can repeat their heroics, Kings batsmen will be in big trouble.
Mohammed Hafeez — The X Factor
 
With a 74 off 46 balls in Eliminator against Peshwar Zalmi, and an important 19 runs knock in the Qualifiers 2, Hafeez will be the man to watch. He has been the anchor to Qalandars batting, and would once again be crucial for them.
Qalandars have a better win-loss record in last 5 encounters
 
Although close, Lahore are on a better win-loss record. In their last five meetings, the stats stand at 3-2 in their favour. They will take inspiration from it as they gear up to take on Kings.
