Peshawar Zalmi will face off against Multan Sultans in the fifth Pakistan Super League match. It will be a great live cricket match between two sides, who will be eager to win. The two sides will want to get off to a strong start in the current edition of the PSL.
The Zalmi – led by Wahab Riaz – come from a first match loss against the Lahore Qalandars. Their batsmen failed to click as Ravi Bopara’s tortoise half-century was the only highlight of the batting line-up with names like Shoaib Malik, Imam-ul-Haq and Kamran Akmal. However, the team seems to have the depth to reach the finals of the tournament. In Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Wahab and Mahmood, they find a solid bowling attack while the batting, boosted by Rutherford in the middle can be destructive. They will now want to put up a big cricket score and win this match.
Peshawar Zalmi Squad: Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Akmal(w), Shoaib Malik, Haider Ali, Ravi Bopara, Sherfane Rutherford, Amad Butt, Wahab Riaz(c), Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Saqib Mahmood, Mohammad Imran, David Miller, Mohammad Irfan, Umaid Asif, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Abrar Ahmed, Waqar Salamkheil, Mohammad Aamir Khan, Mohammad Imran
Like the Peshawar Zalmi, Multan Sultans also carry the weight of a loss in the game. Islamabad United defeated them by three wickets, making it a fourth straight loss for Rizwan and company in the PSL. The skipper did get a fine 73 in the match but the other seemed lost. Vince, Roussow, Lynn and Carlos Braithwaite to finish does make a dangerous combination, but consistency seems like a new popping issue for the side.
Multan Sultans Squad: Mohammad Rizwan(w/c), Chris Lynn, James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Sohaib Maqsood, Khushdil Shah, Carlos Brathwaite, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Umar, Sohaibullah, Sohail Khan, Adam Lyth, Imran Tahir, Usman Qadir, Imran Khan, Shan Masood, Shahnawaz Dhani
Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi have faced each other 6 times in PSL. Multan have won four matches and Peshwar have won two matches.
Karachi has offered a pleasant, sporting contest always. Win the toss and choose to ball for the stats loudly scream victory that way. The winner of the match depends on certain factors but one might want to assume that if Peshawar manage to contain Lynn and Rizwan early, they have a match to win.
