For Karachi Kings, Imad Wasim will look to cap off a personally exquisite PSL 8 campaign with another strong showing.
Matthew Wade, Tayyab Tahir and Qasim Akram will look to make a case to be back next year as well while Mohammad Amir can make his case for an international return one final time with the ball.
Lahore, meanwhile, may choose to rest their key players but if not then their usual suspects will be the ones to keep an eye on.
Abdullah Shafique is due some runs with the bat while Fakahar Zaman has looked great on his day.
Their strength remains their bowling with Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf and Rashid Khan the most lethal trio in PSL.

Karachi has lost 4 of its last five games while Lahore has won 4 in that same span.
But the Kings happen to be one of just two teams who have beaten the Qalandars this season which should give them the confidence to finish things on a high and build for next year.
