PSL 5: Lahore Qalandar Schedule & Players List 2020

Lahore Qalandar is the one side who is looking to turn their fortunes upside down in PSL 2020. A change in their strategy and new captain with a spring in his step may help in getting the title.

Captain of Lahore Qalandars

Sohail Akhtar has been appointed as a new captain for Lahore Qalandar and he is the only captain in this edition of PSL 5 who did not have any international experience.

With a change in strategy Lahore Qalandar this time appointed a captain who surprisingly does not have any international experience but have shown great leadership skills in Lahore Qalandar’s different development forums.

  • Chris Lynn
  • Ben Dunk
  • Lendl Simmons
  • Fakhar Zaman
  • Mohammad Hafeez
  • Salman Butt
  • Jahid Ali
  • M Faizan

Without any doubt you can assume that Lahore Qalandar this year has put together one of the most explosive top order batting talent to boost their chances. Australian duo of Chris Lynn and Ben Dunk are known for their belligerent hitting at top of the order followed by Lendl Simmons and Fakhar Zaman who both can win match single headedly on their day.

Mohammad Hafeez & Salman Butt needs to be accommodated in middle order because opening slot is already having fierce competition.

Youngster like Jahid Ali & Mohammad Faizan both have to wait for their chance and prove their worth if they get one.

  • Samit Patel
  • Seekkuge Prasanna
  • Mohammad Hafeez

Qalandars this year have three dimensional all-rounders to their line up. South Africa David Wiese will support the team plan with his medium fast bowling and late order hitting. Slow left arm spinner from England Samit Patel and Leg spinner from Sri Lanka Seekkuge Parsanna will be fulfilling the role of spin bowling all-rounder to maintain the perfect balance of team. Experience & effectiveness of Mohammad Hafeez as an all-rounder will also be handful because of his bowling skills especially in T20 format.
