The national domestic champions started their campaign in a solid fashion by defeating India’s Mumbai Indians by six wickets but slumped to a 72 runs defeat at the hands of Northern District Knights from New Zealand.
It should be noted that Southern Express T20 has already been knocked out of the stage after they lost their two matches. They lost their match against Mumbai Indians by nine wickets whereas the Sri Lankan domestic champions suffered seven wicket defeat at the hands of Northern Districts.
A nail biting encounter is expected between the two teams. Lahore Lions have to win the match by a huge margin for qualifying in the main draw of the competition.
