Here are the latest updates about your favorite team of HBL PSL 2020. The team is owned by Qatar Lubricants Company Limited. Sohail Akhtar is the new captain of Lahore Qalandars. The team is owned by Mr. Fawad Rana. It is one of the few teams sold to an International company and second-most expensive franchise.
Lahore Qalandars is one of the most talented team of PSL leading their squad with retained Muhammad Hafeez And Fakhar Zaman in the highest category. Salman Butt is the eighth retained player along with David Wiese and Shaheen Shah Afridi in the Diamond category with Haris Rauf and Sohail Akhar among the Gold Picks.
Adding to their distress when AB de Villiers decided to rest this season but new updates are surfacing he may catch up. Brendan Taylor, Carlos Brathwaite, and Corey Anderson are among those released by the team.
The biggest Gamble is the selection of Chris Lynn who in recent times could not live up to the expectations. But he has been spectacular with the bat in the T10 competition which Lahore Qalandars definitely want on their side.
Sohail Akhtar is the captain of LQ. Samit Patel, Sri Lankan leggie Sekkugge Prasanna and hard-hitting batsman Ben Dunk while Farzan Raja, Mujahid Ali and Mohammad Faizan are local lads who made it to the squad.
