Multan Sultans are set to go head-to-head with Islamabad United in the fifth match of the ninth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan on Tuesday, 20th February.

In their opening match of the tournament against the Karachi Kings, Multan Sultans showcased a strong performance. With a formidable batting display led by Dawid Malan and Reeza Hendricks, they set an impressive total of over 180 runs. Their bowling unit, spearheaded by Mohammad Ali, successfully restricted the Kings to just 130 runs. This decisive victory places the Sultans at the top of the points table, boosting their confidence as they gear up for future matches.

Islamabad United, led by all-rounder Shadab Khan, started their PSL journey with a significant victory over Lahore Qalandars, showcasing their determination. Despite Qalandars’ strong batting performance, United showed resilience and composure in their chase. The early dismissal of Colin Munro didn’t deter them as Shadab Khan and Agha Salman led a successful chase, resulting in an eight-wicket victory. This win places Islamabad United in the second position on the PSL 2024 points table, setting a positive tone for their upcoming campaign.

Pitch report

In PSL 9, the Multan Cricket Stadium has hosted a match between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans. Reeza Hendricks, who scored 79* off 54 balls, noted that the ball was holding for the spinners. Teams aim to maximize runs during the Powerplay before the old ball makes scoring tougher. An uninterrupted match is expected due to minimal rain chances.
