Three times they met against each other in the season, two times in the league stages and one time in the Eliminator 1. The Multan Sultans won two times and Lahore Qalandars got one victory. Both teams’ last matches were amazing and also breathtaking. The captain of the Lahore Qalandars team Shaheen Shah Afridi is the second most wickets taker of the season with 17 wickets and Zaman Khan took sixteen. From the Multan Sultans team, Khushdil Shah, Imran Tahir, and Shahnawaz Dahani all of them took 16 wickets each.
Fakhar Zaman is the leading runs scorer of the PSL 2022 season with 585 runs he scored in 12 innings. After Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan is the second-highest runs scorer with 532 runs, Shan Masood 459. So both teams are good but the Multan Sultans team is much stronger than any other team of the season. And they also have proved it with their victories.
