With only 6 days left in PSL to start, Lahore Qalandars are training hard on the field to make their mark in the Pakistan Super League this year.
It has been a disappointing few seasons for the Lahore Qalandars eversince PSL started. They have had no glory in any of the seasons whatsoever, but have had some extremely exciting matches. They’re fixture against their city rivals Karachi Kings is one of the many exciting games that had us on the tip of our feet.
The team has some major super stars like Fakhar Zaman, Muhammad Hafeez and Chris Lynn. Three of the most spontaneous game changing players of the game. Along with other outrageously brilliant talents like Shaheen Shah Afridi, David Wiese and Usman Shinwari.
This season Lahore also has the likes of Haris Rauf and Samit Patel which can play a crucial role in establishing their presence in the league.
Ever since the league has started, Lahore Qalandars have struggled in establishing themselves as competition for any of the other teams. They are considered the underdogs of the championship which perhaps is not true.
With such a dangerous line up, Lahore Qalandars are a very dangerous team to go up against. And maybe this is the time Lahore makes a statement.
Here’s Lahore Qalandars Squad for PSL 2020
- Fakhar Zaman
- Mohammad Hafeez
- Shaheen Shah Afridi
- David Wiese
- Usman Shinwari
- Haris Rauf
- Sohail Akhtar
- Salman Butt
- Chris Lynn
- Samit Patel

- Jaahid Ali
- Farzan Raja
- Ben Dunk

With a squad with such talent and emerging stars like Farzan Raja, Lahore Qalandars is a team no one wants to mess with this season.
Aaqib Javed, former Pakistani Cricketer, and head coach of the Lahore Qalandars is very excited about this year and says that Lahore has great potential to become champions.
Fawad Rana also mentioned that he is hoping that this time Lahore lives up to it’s cities reputation. And brings gold home.
Let’s hope that Fawad Rana screams in joy till the end of the tournament this time.
