It’s the match you've been waiting for. No, we are not talking about the final of the Pakistan Super League, but the match between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings.

Meeting for the first time in this year’s tournament, Qalandars are sitting at their favourite spot — the bottom of the table with four points from six games while the Kings have the third spot with seven points from six games.

The Kings go into this match after their game against Multan Sultans was washed out, while Qalandars thumped Quetta Gladiators by eight wickets in their match last night.

For Qalandars, Mohammad Hafeez is the top scorer with 123 runs with a best of 98*. Samit Patel and Ben Dunk, the heroes of last night's games, have both scored 121 runs each.

In the bowling department, Dilbar Hussain and Shaheen Shah Afridi have both picked six wickets each for the Qalandars.

For the Kings, Babar Azam is leading the batting charts with 187 runs. Alex Hales is the other one pouring in the runs with 159 runs.

Among the bowlers, Mohammad Amir has been impressive with nine wickets and a best of 4-25.

The match between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings will begin at 7pm.
