The match is to be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore and it is expected that this match will be as thrilling as the previous match.
Multan Sultans Team Preview
Having experienced only one defeat in the tournament so far, Multan Sultans have undoubtedly been the best side of the tournament so far. At one point, they looked invincible and their conquest was halted by the Lahore Qalandars. However, in his last match, he made a comeback by defeating Karachi Kings.
In-form Shan Masood and Mohammad Rizwan, have a formidable opening pair that has consistently performed well so far. To add to his strength, he has explosive batsmen in Tim David, Riley Rossouw, and Khushdil Shah, who can all be match-winners on their day. Overall, Multan Sultans have the pace and match winners. If they are able to play to the best of their ability, overcoming them will prove to be a very steady climb.
Karachi Kings got off to a good start, heading towards a high score, but were restricted to 174 by Multan bowlers. Chasing a total of 174 runs against the Kings, with seven wickets in hand and three balls to spare, won the match. Multan bowlers will be expected to repeat their old performance in this match as well.
The dominance of Multan Sultans in the tournament so far is also evident from their position in the points table. With 14 points to their name from eight matches, Sultans are sitting on top and it will be very difficult to displace them from the top. A win here will, in fact, seal their top of the table in the league stage and that is what they have to get from this competition.
Multan Sultans Probable 11
Shaan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan (C&W), Amir Azmat, Riley Rossou, Tim David, Khushdil Shah, Asif Afridi, Ruman Raees, Imran Tahir, Blessing Mujarbani, Shahnawaz Dahani
Quetta Gladiators Match Preview
Under the leadership of Sarfaraz Ahmed, one of the most experienced captains of PSL 2022, Quetta Gladiators really tried to survive in the tournament and hope to win all their remaining matches and qualify for the playoffs. They have shown glimpses of the best performance so far and they will need them all in this upcoming match against Sultans.
Their excessive reliance on Jason Roy is well and truly evident and will require other players to step up in this upcoming match. If that doesn’t happen and Roy and Vince also aren’t able to do their best, the Gladiators are likely to have a very tough time against the high-flying Sultans.
It’s been three matches since the Gladiators last won the tournament, and back-to-back losses have pushed them from a commanding position to a possible no-return position. In his last match, he failed in both departments of the game as he not only scored low batting first but also struggled to fight any off the ball as Lahore Qalandars chased down a target of 172 with eight wickets in hand.
As it is at present, Quetta Gladiators are hanging by a thin thread in the competition and nothing less than victory will work for them. They are fifth on six points with three wins from eight matches. The fact that he has a very poor net run rate of -0.285 doesn’t help his cause either. Even a win or two won’t ensure qualification for them, but the outcome of this upcoming match will clear things up in terms of qualification.
Quetta Gladiators Probable 11
Jason Roy, Will Smeed, James Vince, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Umar Akmal, Noor Ahmed, Sohail Tanvir, Naseem Shah, Ghulam Mudassar, Khurram Shahzad
