Finally, Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars turned the tide in their favor and now require just one final push to be crowned as the Champions of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020. PTV Sports Live
Both sides were evidently well below the par in the first four PSL Seasons and ended up right at the bottom.
But it was Lahore Qalandars which took the biggest leap to the top and silenced its critics.
Lahore Qalandars had ended its PSL Campaigns in 2016 and 2017 with 5th spot while in 2018 and 2019, it finished at the very bottom.
However, with Sohail Akhtar as overall its 7th Captain, Qalandars in the PSL 5th Edition broke the shackles and reached the Final.
Even Karachi Kings somewhat also experienced the same journey in PSL and now both are set to wrestle at National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday.
For the first time, both Lahore and Karachi Kings have made it to the final of the Pakistan Super League but unfortunately, the biggest rivalry in PSL’s history will be witnessed by empty chairs at the Stadium.
Head to Head: Karachi Kings won 6, Lahore Qalandars 3
Yet the excitement is at its peak and millions of people are eagerly waiting to watch Kings and Qalandars locking horn in the HBL PSL Final on TV sets.
So far Karachi Kings has asserted its dominance over Lahore Qalandars with six victories against three in 10 T20s.
Big Day, Big Match Tonight ‼️
It’s 💙 #Kings 🆚 💚 #Qalandars at National Stadium Karachi 🏟️

For the Final, both teams are equally poised as if Kings’ Babar Azam is atop in the most runs getters list with 410 runs, Qalandars’ Shaheen Shah Afridi with 17 wickets is also occupying the top spot in the most wickets category.
Besides, both sides are well equipped with Overseas Players i.e. Alex Hales, Chadwick Walton, Wayne Parnell, and Sherfane Rutherford are representing Karachi Kings while Lahore Qalandars has been empowered with Tamim Iqbal, Ben Dunk, Samit Patel, and David Wiese.
BEST OF LUCK!😍 from KORT Educational Complex Mirpur.
