The teams have arrived and have been met with light showers. The MET office said that intermittent light showers will continue throughout the day in the city.
According to Accuweather, there is a 51 per cent chance of rain at 7pm which is when the match will start.
The match marks the return of Pakistan Super League (PSL) action to Lahore, after the historic city successfully hosted last year's final in front of a roaring crowd of thousands.
Today's encounter is a do-or-die for both: the losing team will get eliminated from the competition, while the winning team will play the qualifier's losing team in Lahore tomorrow (March 21).
In case the match is rained out, Peshawar Zalmi will face Karachi Kings in the second eliminator match with the winner facing Karachi Kings in the final in Karachi on March 25.
