WATCH PSL LIVE: Lahore Qalandars vs Karachi Kings
Lahore Qalandars will be desperately hoping to get their campaign back on track when they face Karachi Kings in the eighth game of the Pakistan Super League at Dubai International Stadium on today.
The game is the last before the PSL moves to Sharjah and its importance will not be lost on either side, especially with Lahore having lost their opening two games. Meanwhile, history is not on Lahore’s side though, with Karachi having won three of the four matches that have been played between the two sides.
Lahore Qalandars have struggled to prevent the leakage of runs and that has been their biggest downfall. Teenage sensation Shaheen Afridi, however, hopes to address that issue in the upcoming games.
Karachi, on the other hand, were superb in the first game as they defeated two-time finalists Quetta Gladiators in emphatic manner and are now eyeing a second win on the trot.

Brendon McCullum (captain), Sunil Narine, Fakhar Zaman, Cameron Delport, Gulraiz Sadaf (wk), Umar Akmal, Raza Hasan, Sohail Akhtar, Yasir Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Mustafizur Rahman, Sohail Khan, Mitchell McClenaghan, Bilawal Bhatti, Ghulam Mudassar, Bilal Asif, Aamer Yamin
