The Multan Sultans got off to a winning start in PSL 2022 as they crushed the Karachi Kings without any difficulty. They will now play their second match of PSL 7 against the Lahore Qalandars. The best cricket betting sites have given Multan Sultans the tag of favorites in this contest and we can see why they would do that.
The Lahore Qalandars, though, is a very strong bowling team and easily one of the most dangerous teams to come up against in the Pakistan Super League.
Let us see who these two teams match up against each other.
Match Prediction and cricket betting tips for Multan Sultans vs Lahore Qalandars PSL 2022. The match is going to be played at the National Stadium, Karachi on the 29th of January 2022.
The Multan Sultans are the defending champions of the PSL and they started with a convincing win over the Karachi Kings. Mohammad Rizwan seems to have picked up from where he left off and scored yet another fifty! It is hard to argue against him being the best T20 batsman in Pakistan right now.
Shan Masood, Sohaib Maqsoood, Tim David, and Rilee Rossow give the Multan Sultans one of the strongest batting lineups in PSL 2022. They hit five sixes in the previous match (quite a lot for a short chase) and could be a great pick to score the Most Sixes in this next match as well.
Imran Tahir was the bowler that made life difficult for everyone in the previous match as he took three wickets and gave away just 16 runs in his four overs. The Multan Sultans would still be expecting a lot more from Imran Khan, Shahnawz Dahani, and David Willey.
The Multan Sultans have put together a deep and powerful batting lineup for this edition of the PSL. We have seen in the past editions how strong batting teams tend to be far and few in the PSL so that could be a big advantage to have.

The Lahore Qalandars started their season very strong in the previous PSL but then completely lost their way at the end and finished fifth. The only team to have not won a PSL title so far, the Lahore Qalandars have picked Shaheen Afridi to captain them in PSL 7.
From a betting point of view, we would avoid placing a big bet on the Lahore Qalandars until we have seen them play. They are a form team and filled with match-winners. However, all of their match-winners seem to be bowlers.
Shaheen Afridi, Rashid Khan, and Haris Rauf can run through any batting lineup on its day but if the bowlers are having a bad day, the Lahore Qalandars could suffer. As deep as the bowling lineup is, the batting is a bit thin.
Ben Dunk and Fakhar Zaman appear to be the two batsmen that are going to have to do the bulk of the scoring. Sohail Akhtar and Mohammad Hafeez have both regressed a bit over the last year or so and this means that the Lahore Qalandars could be in trouble if they end up losing a few early wickets.
We have seen in past seasons that the Lahore Qalandars win big or lose big. You never get consistency from them and we have a feeling that this season will be similar. A tough first match where its bowling lineup is going to be tested against one of the strongest batting lineups will give us a great idea of what to expect from them further.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Chasing teams tend to have a massive advantage at the National Stadium in Karachi. If you would have just bet on the chasing team here in PSL 6, you would have won all but one of your matches!

There is no weather forecast for match day and there should be no interruptions. The pitch was surprisingly slow in the first match. It was difficult for the batsmen to get into their groove but that could change as the surface settles a bit and the players adjust to the pace. Still, indications are that the surface is one where scores around 150-160 will be far more common than 180-190.

We are going to bet on the Multan Sultans to win this match. They have a strong batting lineup led by the brilliant Mohammad Rizwan. The Lahore Qalandars are going to be a big threat with the ball but if they are not able to get the early breakthroughs, we fear they are going to be left far behind.
Bet on the Multan Sultans to win.
Ben Dunk has been in pretty good form and was the leading run-scorer for Lahore Qalandars in PSL 6. We think the Over/Under line available is quite reasonable. We are backing him to get more than 17.5 in this match.
There were just 8 sixes hit in the opening match of PSL 2022, however, that was when one team just did not get going. We think a more even contest with some more runs being scored could easily see over 10.5 sixes being hit.
