mls vs qtg Match Prediction & Analysis

It is the 25th game of the Pakistan Super League 2021 and the Multan Sultans face the Quetta Gladiators. The Multan Sultans have looked in good form since the resumption of the tournament and have won both their games including the last game against the Peshawar Zalmi while the Gladiators also defeated the Lahore Qalandars in their previous game. 

It has been a bad season for the Quetta Gladiators where they have managed to win just two games and they are already out of the contention for the next round. The side has failed to deliver as a unit so far. Multan Sultans are in good form at the moment and they would want to win this game and open up their chances of making it to the next round. 

Teams Preview

Multan Sultans Preview

Mohammad Rizwan’s side has done well since the resumption of the tournament and won both their games. They come here after a massive 8-wicket win against the Peshawar Zalmi and this would have surely boosted their confidence. Their batting looks in good form and Rizwan would want to win this game and keep their hopes alive for a place in the playoffs.  

Mohammad Rizwan played brilliantly in the last game and shall look to offer a good start in company of Shan Masood. Sohaib Maqsood played a blinder in the last game and makes the middle order very strong with Rilee Rossouw and Shimron Hetmyer who are good hitters of the ball. With Khushdil Shah and Sohail Tanvir in the side they have good batting to follow. 

Imran Khan and Sohail Tanvir will have to come up with a good show in this game as they take on a top heavy batting line-up. Shahnawaz Dhani was impressive in the last game and so was Imran Tahir bowling tight spells on a very good batting surface. They would also expect Blessing Muzarabani to make good use of his experience in this game.

Multan Sultans Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Shan Masood, Sohaib Maqsood, Rilee Rossouw, Shimron Hetmyer, Khushdil Shah, Sohail Tanvir, Blessing Muzarabani, Shahnawaz Dhani, Imran Khan, Imran Tahir

Quetta Gladiators Preview

It was finally something to cheer about for Sarfaraz Ahmed’s side as they registered their second win of the season defeating the Lahore Qalandars by 18 runs in the game. The side is out of the contention for a berth in the playoffs and as they play their last game Sarfaraz would like to bow out of the tournament on a high. 

Jake Weatherald did well in the last game and shall look to offer a good start here with Usman Khan. The side has good firepower in the middle order and shall expect runs from the likes of Cameron Delport, Sarfaraz Khan and Azam Khan. In Hassan Khan and Mohammad Nawaz they have clean strikers of the ball and they would need to do the big hitting towards the end. 

They bowled well in the last game with Usman Shinwari and Mohammad Hasnain grabbing early wickets and the same would be expected here. In Mohammad Nawaz and Khurram Shahzad they have smart bowlers who can bowl tight spells and they would expect them to deliver against the strong batting line-up that Multan Sultans have. 

Quetta Gladiators Predicted Playing XI:

Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Cameron Delport, Usman Khan, Jake Weatherald, SAzam Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hassan Khan, Zahoor Khan, Mohammad Hasnain, Khurram Shahzad, Usman Shinwari

Weather Conditions

The skies would be clear over Abu Dhabi on June 16 and the conditions would be hot and humid. The wicket here has been flat with nothing for the fast bowlers. The side that bats first in this game would have to set a target in excess of 170 runs to feel safe.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi is one of the largest grounds in UAE but the quick outfield here does allow the batsmen to score quick runs. It isn’t the best wicket for the fast bowlers with little movement in the air but spinners do well as there is good turn on offer for them.

Toss: To Bowl

Lots of runs have been scored in the games that have been played since the resumption of the tournament. The wicket has been flat and setting up a target on the board is a big challenge. Hence, the side that wins the toss here is most likely to invite the opposition to bat first.

MLS vs QTG Winning Prediction

Quetta Gladiators are bowing out from another tournament without much glory. Their campaign this season has been poor and their batting line-up hasn’t looked great in most of the games. Multan Sultans on the other hand have shown good spirit in the last two games and have reignited their hopes. Based on the form of the two sides the Multan Sultans would start favorites here.
