On paper both LQ and KK look strong. LQ’s lower-order batting and their fast bowlers are a handful to manage while KK’s bowlers too are world-class and of course their upper-order batsmen have it in them to win the important game single-handedly. 

So, there is no doubt that the final of PSL 5 promises to be a very very exciting affair and one that should add another chapter to the Lahore Karachi rivalry on the cricket field!
