Karachi Kings vs Multan Sultans, match 16
Match day: Thursday
Match Time: 6:00 PM PST, 5:00 PM GMT
Venue: Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium
Pitch & Weather report:
- 36 Degrees Celsius when the game initiates and will probably remain the same with no major changes with the progression
- No chances of rain
- Equally beneficial for both; batters and bowlers
- Batters might have an edge just like in any T20 tournament
- Spinners and Fast bowlers will equally be favored; however, if it is dew in the darkness, spinners might struggle more as compare to the pacers
Analyzing the results from the Karachi leg, the Kings have an edge as they stayed at the top of the table until the match 15th that took place in Abu Dhabi after extravaganza’s resumption between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars was winded up. Kings, who won the last session of the PSL, have played five games out of which they strived in two.
On the other hand, Mohammad Rizwan’s Sultans struggled in the first phase of PSL as the co won only a single game out of five players. Therefore, they will need to regain the momentum, or alarming bells ring for them as the men in red-blue are confident to take an edge this time. Notably, other than Rizwan, the rest of the Sultan’s batters are yet to show their potent.
