PSL 2021: MS vs LQ – Match 28 – Dream 11, Team, Predictions, & Tips

This article will talk about the probable XIs for both teams and continue with the Dream11 predictions and the winning fantasy team for Match 28 of the PSL 2021 between the Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars that is scheduled to take place on the 18th of June 2021.

Two teams, Multan Sultan and Lahore Qalandars that have never won a PSL title before will face-off on the penultimate night of the league stage this season. Multan Sultan led by Mohmmad Rizwan has been on a roll ever since this leg of PSL 2021 started. They won 2 games on the trot and have climbed up to the 4th in the points table after winning 3 of their 7 games. Lahore has 5 from their completed games but is on the wrong side of the result in their last 2 games.

Multan Sultans beat the Sohail Akthar-led Lahore Qalandars by 6 wickets in the first leg of the PSL held at Karachi earlier this year. It is to be noted that the latter will have played a game against the Karachi Kings before this particular contest.

Match Details

VenueSheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Pitch and Weather– The pitches here in Abu Dhabi so far have been a mixed bag. Few of the games have been relatively high-scoring games while in another few games, the batsman has found it difficult. The temperature will be close to 33 C despite the game starting at 8 PM local time and the levels will be uncomfortable.

Date and time: June 18, 2021, 8 PM Local, 9 PM PKT, 9.30 PM IST

The Probable Playing XIs

Multan Sultans had to let go of Shimron Hetmyer owing to his national duties. Johnson Charles replaced him and might remain till the end. So they will most likely go with the same side that played Quetta.

Lahore, despite the results not going their way would not makes any significant changes to the side.

Multan Sultans– Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Maqsood, Johnson Charles, Sohaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Khushdil Shah, Blessing Muzarbani, Shahnawaz Dhani, Sohail Tanvir, Imran Tahir, Imran Khan

Lahore Qalandars– Fakhar Zaman, Sohail Akhtar(C), Ben Dunk, Zeeshan Ashraf, Mohammad Hafeez, Tim David, James Faulkner, Rashid Khan, Ahmed Daniyal, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf

Match Prediction

Multan Sultans have been resurgent in this 2nd leg of the tournament and I don’t see why they can’t continue their winning run. On the other hand, Lahore has had a disappointing couple of games and this would be their final league game of the season which could be an added pressure for them.

Fantasy Tips

Batsman-Tim David has been the best batsman for Lahore Qalandars in this 2nd leg of the PSL. He has bailed them out from precarious positions several times. Johnson Charles made an impact straight away after his inclusion in the side for Multan and his innings gave them a big total to defend. Shoaib Maqsood also had a good tournament which is why he can be picked along with teammate Shan Masood who played a remarkable knock in the last game at the top of the order.

All-rounder– James Faulkner may become the MVP of the tournament if he continues his wicket-taking spree and he is a good batsman down the order. Mohammad Hafeez is another player one can depend on in the Fantasy and he is due for a big knock.

Wicket-Keeper– Multan skipper Mohammad Rizwan can be the sole keeper of the Fantasy team as well.

Bowlers– 2 of the best leg-spinners in the T20 format, Rashid Khan and Imran can be picked in your team for this game. Along with them, the fast-bowling duo of Shaheen and Haris Rauf of Lahore Qalandars can be stacked as the other 2 bowlers.

Captaincy choices

Team for fantasy:  Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Shoaib Maqsood, Tim David, Johnson Charles, Mohammad Hafeez, James Faulkner, Shaheen Afridi, Rashid Khan, Haris Rauf, Imran Tahir

Captain-Mohammad Rizwan

Mohammad Rizwan is a class act at the top of the order in the T20s and is also the leading run-getter of this season’s PSL. So he can be made the skipper of your fantasy side.

Vice-Captain– James Faulkner

The all-rounder has had a dream run in this PSL and can be made the Vice-Captain of your fantasy side.
