The entertainment in cricket never stops and now it is time for the T20 cricket league in Pakistan. Pakistan Super League is already underway and the fifth game of the tournament will see Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalimi facing each other on 17th February at Multan International Stadium.
MS started their PSL campaign with a loss against Lahore Qalandars but immediately made a comeback in the tournament by winning the second fixture against Quetta Gladiators. The online bookies have odds in their favour to win this tie.
On the other hand, PSZ started their PSL campaign with a win against Karachi Kings. The team will be confident and will look to register their second win in the tournament.
Multan Sultans will register a win and it could be a nail-biter.
The betting tip is...
Babar Azam to score under 25.
Multan Sultans registered a dominating win in their second fixture against Quetta Gladiators. The bowlers played their part well and restricted the opposition to a below-par score. Ishanullah picked up five wickets at an economy of 3.00.
Meanwhile, Sameen Gul and Abbas Afridi picked up two wickets each. It was a comfortable score to chase for the batters as Mohammad Rizwan and Rilee Russouw won the game in the 14th over itself.
Multan Sultans won’t be making any changes in their playing XI for the next game as they are coming into the match after a convincing win.
Predicted Lineup: Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Shan Masood, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Kieron Pollard, Khushdil Shah, Akeal Hosein, Usama Mir, Sameen Gul, Abbas Afridi, Ihsanullah
Peshawar Zalimi are coming to play the second fixture after registering a win in a high-scoring fixture against Karachi Kings. Babar Azam and Tom Kohler-Cadmore are men in form and PSZ fans will be hoping that duo continues their fine form in this match as well.
However, the major concern for the team management will be the average form of the bowlers as they leaked runs at will during the previous encounter.
Peshawar Zalimi's lineup will be unchanged because it is too soon to make changes in the squad as of now.
Predicted Lineup: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Haris (wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Saim Ayub, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, James Neesham, Shakib Al Hasan, Wahab Riaz, Sufiyan Muqeem, Salman Irshad, Khurram Shahzad
Multan Sultans made a brilliant comeback in the second fixture. On the other hand, Peshawar struggled with their bowling segment and hence we predict a win for Multan Sultans.
