Lahore have qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 5 years and Patel has played a key part in this journey. He scored 137 runs and took nine wickets in the tournament before it was postponed and he will look to build on that in the play-offs.
The tournament was postponed due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and is set to restart in mid-November.
