PSL 9: Can Lahore Qalandars still qualify for playoffs?

PSL 9: Can Lahore Qalandars still qualify for playoffs?

Lahore: Defending champions Lahore Qalandars have had a torrid run during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine after losing all of their five matches so far.

The two-time champions are currently at the bottom of the points table with their next match set to take place tomorrow in Lahore against league leaders Multan Sultans.

In order to stay in the hunt for the playoffs, Lahore need to win all of their remaining five matches and reach 10 points.

Over the recent years in PSL, 10 has generally been the minimum number of points needed to qualify for the playoffs.

Peshawar Zalmi in 2023, Karachi Kings in 2021 and 2019 and Quetta Gladiators in 2018 all qualified for the playoffs with 10 points — which was the least among the four teams which made it through to the next round.

Islamabad United qualified for the playoffs in 2022 with eight points and Peshawar Zalmi in 2020 with nine points.

So, all hope is not lost, yet, for Lahore Qalandars if we look at the PSL results from the previous years.
