FLUKE ALONG MIDAS TOUCH!
Ramiz Raja once said,
“It will be hard to beat Lahore Qalandars this season.”
He was criticized with the pitiful comments in an account of Lahore Qalandar’s amiss dispatched staging at all of the four prior seasons of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Ending up on the down spot every time dragged them to the height of being criticized. The coach along with the players received an evaluative assessment. They rebound with the consistency twice against Gladiators and once against Kings after being drabbed up in the few initial league matches giving a choked soft-pedal to masses which whipped up them to the third shaft.
Keeping it consistent, they have qualified for the semi-finals which have happened for the very first time in the history of the PSL beating Multan Sultans to compass the feat.
From Shinwari’s no-ball against United to Chris Lynn 52 ball magnificent ton against Sultans with Ben Dunk 40 balls 99* against Kings in between, everything have favored Qalandars positively lacking the sign of blunders and spanks.
This might be regarded as a stroke of luck or an outcome of enhanced confidence along with the hard work which has portside Qalandars since last seasons. The exceptional comeback has resulted in gearing up the franchise to semi-finals as Rameez Raja predicted at first, teams almost became unable to beat the side.
The thing that still is missing for the side is the appearance of Rana Fawad despite headed victories for Qalandars that the fans so far have missed up to an apex extent.
Fans believe Qalandars might challenge the PSL trophy this time as they have come till here with Sohail Akhtar as the skipper and the same, Aqib Javed as a coach. It would be so rare despite turmoils and blunders for Qalandars if they managed till the end so.
