DUBAI: Lahore Qalandars, still searching for their first win of this season, meet Karachi Kings in an epic rivalry tonight in Dubai.
After finishing at the bottom of the table in both the previous editions of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Lahore kicked off this season determined to end their losing streak. However, the nightmare continued as Multan Sultans beat them by 43 runs and Quetta Gladiators outclassed them by 9 wickets.
Karachi Kings, who revamped their squad this year, had a flying start to their PSL campaign with a 19-run win over Quetta Gladiators and a 5-wicket win over Peshawar Zalmi.
