Multan Sultans Preview

Bowlers put in an excellent performance to set up a comfortable win for Multan Sultans in the previous game against Islamabad United. With this result, Multan Sultans have managed to extend their lead at the top of the points table in PSL. A win against Quetta Gladiators would see them become the first side to qualify for the playoffs of the tournament this season. The inclusion of left-arm quick Junaid Khan and opener James Vince turned out to be a big positive for Multan in the game played against Islamabad.

Pacer Junaid Khan bowled well and dismissed in-form opener Luke Ronchi to provide an early breakthrough for the side against Islamabad United. In his second over, he dismissed pinch-hitter, Asif Ali, to maintain the pressure on Islamabad’s batting lineup.

Besides Junaid, Leg-spinner Imran Tahir bowled brilliantly and dismissed the likes of Colin Munro and Shadab Khan to put Multan in a strong position in the game. With 2 for 13 in his two overs, Tahir has been standout bowler for the franchise this season.

Chasing 92 runs in 9 overs, Zeeshan Ashraf and James Vince got the side off to a terrific start and added 68 runs for the opening wicket. Despite Zeeshan Ashraf perishing in the fifth over, Vince continued to be aggressive and hit boundaries at regular intervals. He smashed a blistering 61 not out off 24 balls with the help of 10 boundaries and one six. He was well supported by Moeen Ali, who struck 14 runs with the help of three boundaries.

Multan Sultans Predicted Playing XI:

Shan Masood (captain), Zeeshan Ashraf (wk), James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Moeen Ali, Khushdil Shah, Shahid Afridi, Imran Tahir, Mohammad Ilyas, Junaid Khan, Sohail Tanvir

Quetta Gladiators Preview

Sarfaraz Ahmed’s Quetta Gladiator lost their fourth game in a row this 2020 PSL season on Saturday when they went down by eight wickets to hosts Lahore Qalandars at Gaddafi Stadium. With this result, this is the franchise’s worst-ever run in the history of PSL. Quetta Gladiators were desperately searching for a victory against Lahore – who are placed at bottom of the league– but once again ended up on the losing side again. 

Put in to bat by Lahore Qalandars, Quetta Gladiators delivered their worst batting performance this season and scored a paltry 98 runs for the loss of nine wickets in their 20 overs. In reply, Mohammad Nawaz picked up crucial wickets with the new ball but it wasn’t enough as Lahore Qalandars canter to a comprehensive victory.

In the batting department, the team will be depending on in-form opener Jason Roy, who is the franchise’s leading run-getter with 233 runs in 8 matches at an average of 33.28. All-rounder Ben Cutting’s form with the bat has been really impressive this season.

The onus will be on the experienced players like Shane Watson, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Jason Roy to deliver notable contributions in this must win-game. There might be one change to the bowling unit as premier pacer Mohammad Hasnain might be rested for this game. Left-arm quick Tymal Mills will keen to make an impact with the new-ball.

Quetta Gladiators Predicted Playing XI:

Shane Watson, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Sohail Khan, Ahmed Shehzad, Jason Roy, Ben Cutting, Mohammad Nawaz, Fawad Ahmed, Mohammad Hasnain/Tymal Millls, Azam Khan, Zahid Mahmood
