Aaqib Javed uncovers the purpose for LQ’s adjustment of fortunes.
Qalandars completed at the lower part of the focus table.

Aaqib Javed, the head coach of Lahore Qalandars, has revealed the reason for his team’s shift in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The Qalandars completed at the lower part of the focuses table during the initial four times of the occasion yet the tide has changed in support of themselves throughout recent years.
Javed is of the opinion that the team’s transition from a bowling-friendly to a batting-friendly strategy has helped it establish itself in Pakistan’s premier T20 competition.
Javed told, “What do we produce the best? Bowlers, right? I acted with the kind of bowlers we produce, to use that as leverage. This wasn’t built overnight. We made it and I am extremely proud to form this attack,”
“In T20 thinking, you get wickets from the new ball and we have Shaheen, who is the best in the world and at the end, you have to defend the total. You need a death bowler and nobody is better than Haris Rauf. From two seasons, the way Zaman merged into this pack as a death bowler and even with the new ball, this composition is the best in the world. Then, in the middle overs, you have the privilege of Rashid Khan and the kind of impact he brings to any side. This season, a masterstroke gift we found from the draft was Sikandar Raza. You look at our journey from Hafeez to Sikandar – isn’t it one of the best moves? It is.
“David [Wiese] – people don’t rate him much, they think of him as a retired cricketer who used to play for South Africa and possibly a bowler they think they can use his overs as an opportunity. But it’s an illusion. He has the highest number of five-wicket hauls in T20 cricket in the world. People look at him as a soft target and want to attack him, but he is very smart and uses variations depending on the situation.
“So, we say, if you want to win, come compete with us; but then you have to hit six bowlers at ten an over. If you manage to hit 40 each off Shaheen, Rashid, Haris, David, Zaman and Sikandar then you deserve to win. If any two bowlers go under 30 and others over  then the maximum you can get is 160 or 170.”
It is important to note that the Qalandars, who finished at the top of the points table, will play Multan Sultans today in the qualifier for PSL 8, and the team that wins will advance to the event’s final.
