Lahore Qalandars (LAH) will open their Pakistan Super League 2022 account with a difficult game against defending champions Multan Sultans (MUL) at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday, January 29. The match will start at 3:00 PM IST.

MUL vs LAH Dream11 prediction

Multan Sultans taking on Lahore Qalandars is never a dull affair as the two teams have always managed to mesmerise fans with brilliant performances. Their last meeting, in PSL 2021, saw MUL registering a whopping 80-run win after bowling out LAH for a mere 89 runs. MUL, in fact, won both the games against LAH in the previous campaign and have a 5-4 lead in the head-to-head between the two teams.

Judging by their first match of the season which they won by seven wickets against Karachi Kings, the Sultans are looking even better this time around and are expected to emerge with maximum points come Saturday.

MUL vs LAH Dream11 team tips for Pakistan Super League 2022

Top tip: Best batter

LAH’s 31-year-old batter Fakhar Zaman is the most picked player in the batting category for this encounter. Selected by 82.8 per cent of fantasy players, the top order batter scored 287 runs last season and will look to better his tally this time around.

Top tip: Best bowler

MUL’s Imran Tahir is an outright pick for a bowler. The veteran South African spinner picked three wickets in his previous outing, resulting in a tally of 105 fantasy points. Despite being available at 9.0 credits, the 42-year-old is selected by 91.63 per cent of fantasy players for this contest and makes for a worthy asset in your team.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Samit Patel of LAH is a risky proposition but judging by his recent returns in the Lanka Premier League, the Englishman could return with a decent tally of points as an all-rounder. At 9.0 credits, he is certainly not a cheap investment but is capable of having an impact with bat and ball.

As far as a wicket-keeper is concerned, MUL’s Mohammad Rizwan is a must-have player for this encounter. The world’s second ranked T20I batter accrued 71 fantasy points from the previous game after scoring 52 runs against Karachi Kings. Hence, it comes as no surprise that he is the most picked player for this match.
