Inzamam backs ‘lucky’ Lahore Qalandars in PSL final
Statesman Report
KARACHI: Pakistan’s legendary former cricketer Inzamamul Haq, in a YouTube video, backed the ‘lucky’ Lahore Qalandars side as the favourites to win the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five final against Karachi Kings at the National Stadium in Karachi on Tuesday. The 50-year-old believed that luck had favoured Lahore Qalandars so far in the ongoing tournament and that is why they were the favourites to come out on top in their upcoming encounter against Karachi Kings. “If someone asks for my views about the final, it could be right or wrong, but I would say that Lahore Qalandars are the favourites to win it. I say this because luck had not favoured Lahore Qalandars in the last four PSL’s. I see luck favouring the Qalandars this time around,” said Inzamam. “In the recent match against Peshawar Zalmi, in which Hafeez scored 74 runs and finished the match, the all-rounder was caught behind and no one appealed for it. The Qalandars got through that patch because of that incident. These are the symptoms and there was another point at which his catch was dropped. This is a symptom that luck is on their side,” he added. ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������
