Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars Betting Tips 29/01/2022

The third fixture of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 sees Multan Sultans take on Lahore Qalandars at National Stadium Karachi on Jan 29 (Saturday). The match is to begin at 3pm IST.

Teams Status

Multan Sultans

Multan Sultans began their title defence in style, brushing aside Karachi Kings in the tournament opener on Thursday night. They took their time in getting to the 125-run target but the match was effectively over ever since their veteran leggie Imran Tahir had demolished Karachi batting in the first innings of the day.

The only time Multan’s victory was in doubt was when Karachi’s Babar Azam (23) and Sharjeel Khan (43) were batting and had given their side a 66-run stand for the opening wicket. Tahir dismissed Sharjeel and then took care of Mohammad Nabi and Tom Lammonby to leave Karachi innings in tatters.

In the run chase, Multan top three all found runs, but their skipper extraordinaire Mohammad Rizwan again stood out with an unbeaten 52.

A warning has been fired at the rest of the league. Tahir, at nearly 43, is still a force, and Sultans, even with the added pressure of being defending champions, are unperturbed.

Lahore Qalandars

Last year, Lahore Qalandars were expected to build upon their 2020 campaign when they made the finals opposite Karachi Kings but they failed to live up to expectations and missed the playoffs.

There is a change in leadership as superstar pacer Shaheen Afridi has replaced Sohail Akhtar. They’ve recruited England’s Phil Salt and Harry Brook, while a bunch of their overseas players have re-signed, including Rashid Khan, Samit Patel and Ben Dunk.

Tim David has left for Multan and that could be a major setback. And so would be the departure of James Faulkner, who now plays for Quetta Gladiators.

Lahore lost both their matches to Multan last year and must now be keen to correct that record.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Multan to win @ 1.73

These are two as evenly matches teams as any. Lahore’s pace unit is superior but then Multan’s batting unit is more powerful. Both the teams boast tricksters in Imran Tahir (Multan) and Rashid Khan (Lahore). It’s just that Multan have a far more reliable anchor in Mohammad Rizwan, which is why we like them to win this game as well. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Fakhar Zaman to score less than 21.5 runs @ 1.85

Fakhar Zaman is not someone who takes to things like a duck to water. This being the first match of the tournament, we think he would struggle, especially against someone as tricky as Imran Tahir – if he is introduced early. We expect him to not cover the 18.5-run spread in this game. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.


This will primarily be a contest between Multan’s batting and Lahore’s bowling. Both possess enough quality to make the other a non-factor. Let’s see who wins. We think Multan would.
