    Same old story for Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings

    The two most expensive franchises in the PSL, one can't make the playoff's to save their lives and the other two always falters in making it to the final.

    LQ can't be accussed of not investing enough in talent camps and scouting camps as they probably invest the most at the grass roots compared to all the other franchises. However the owner Fawad Rana needs to do a Vijay Malya and fire his team management and coaching staff now.

    However KK, i have to question whether they are even managing the franchise seriously. I don't believe Salman Iqbal undertakes any talent or coaching camps to find youngsters. In fact, his instagram is always full of pics and videos of the A list celebrities partying at his place.

    If LQ could play full team most of the matches it would have been interesting.

    PSL will rise to its potential only when these two teams play well and win a title.

    Two cities with gigantic populations and fan bases.

    LQ would be happy to be in Karachi's position. They haven't even made the playoffs.

    They have a huge following in and out of PAK. Next year new round and new chances. The jazba will be there AGAIN.

    Imagine the scenes when LAHORE actually will play a game in Lahore, that will be amazing.

    Don't know when will the owners realize that Mickey Arthur and Aaqib Javed are useless coaches.

    Islamabad has the most professional management and that's why they have been the most successful side.

    Islamabad has indeed a very good base. They also launched the likes of Faheem, Shadab, Asif, Musa... young local talent.

    Hmm gigantic population but fan base is not as much considering their population.

    Even on twitter Quetta Gladitors have 200k+ more followers than these franchises.

    True. But it is the lack of planning that makes it frustrating. This team could easily have won the thing with better planning. Shinwari gets thrashed every match still got selected. Sohail, despite also being an ordinary bowler and on his last legs, had bowled some decent slower balls in the past few games which did trouble the batsmen on these tracks and could've batted as well.

    Karachi needs a strong Pakistani player as captain. Imad, Amir, and Babar are not the answer.

    price of the franchise has no correlation with performance. Both those franchises are happy parading Pakistani celebrities around their stadiums

    Once they start focusing on cricket, they'll start winning

    Quetta really is the best run franchise in terms of on field performance. Nadeem Omar is exceptional

    These franchises have argued that the revenue should be distributed according to the Franchise fee they are paying to the PCB annually rather than equally.

    you've knocked out Babar, Amir, Imad out of consideration. I assume Malik and Hafeez aren't qualified either. That doesn't leave very many strong Pakistani cricketers... Sarfraz, Fakhar, Shadab are pretty much the only ones left, and I wouldn't call Fakhar or Shadab a very strong captaincy option

    Its not like we have Pakistani Root and Kohli available to captain

    Accept it or not but Amir and Babar are Pakistanís biggest stars

    Afridi should have stayed longer in the franchise.

    It would have been great for him to play his last game in karachi for karachi

    Non of the franchise gave chance to young talent.

    Lack of innovation.. Sohail Akhtar LQ was doing good as an opener 37 (24) next game he is moved down in the order.
    Shadab as an opener as Narine play as an opener in IPL …
    Defensive mindset
