Multan Sultans lost their last match against Peshawar Zalmi despite scoring 172 runs. Jonathan Charles and Shoaib Malik have been their most consistent batsmen in the tournament.

They have enviable fast bowling attack with the likes of Mohammed Irfan, Junaid Khan and Mohammed Ilyas. Experienced All-rounders Shahid afridi and Shoiab Malik share the spin bowling duties.
