Lahore Qalandars’ performance has been outstanding at their home ground. They have not lost a single match at the Lahore Qaddafi Stadium. But now they are traveling to Rawalpindi which has the home ground of Islamabad United. We could expect from Qalandars given their amazing performance that they will not lose any upcoming match.
However, one might wonder that Lahore Qalandars may be performing superbly in their backyard. But they might not perform at other venues. On this question, David Wiese said ” We will have a four-day break including a day when we’ll travel for Pindi. After arriving there, we’ll set up training sessions and test ourselves at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. There’s time to take a break and we believe that we will not break the momentum.”
Furthermore, Eoin Holland asked Wiese about the chance of Shaheen being the captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team. In reply, he said, “Shaheen Afridi will 100% be captain of the Pakistan cricket team. He has shown his leadership skills, he stays calm and I can definitely see him captaining Pakistan in the next couple of years.”

His strategic prowess and the team’s unwavering determination have illuminated their path.
