Having shocked Lahore Qalandars by 18 runs, Quetta Gladiators will be keen to pull off another upset when they face Multan Sultans in match 25 of PSL 2021, at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Despite their victory over Lahore Qalandars on Tuesday, Quetta Gladiators remain at the last position in the PSL 2021 points table. They have won only two of their eight matches so far. Before their victory against Lahore Qalandars, they were comprehensively beaten by Islamabad United (tenwickets) and Peshawar Zalmi (61 runs).
Meanwhile, Multan Sultans have done slightly better, winning three of their seven matches they have played so far. They are just above Quetta Gladiators in the PSL 2021 points table. Multan Sultans have won both the matches they have played in Abu Dhabi so far, defeating Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi.
Usman Shinwari (3/32), Khurram Shahzad (3/14) and Mohammad Nawaz (2/16) were the star performers for Quetta Gladiators as they defended a total of 158 against Lahore Qalandars. While their bowling was impressive, they still need to work on their batting. Apart from Jake Weatherald (48), Sarfaraz Ahmed (34 not out) and Azam Khan (33), all their other batters struggled again.
Multan Sultans will go into the clash against Quetta Gladiators on a high, having trounced Peshawar Zalmi by eight wickets in their previous encounter. Shahnawaz Dhani (4/31) was the standout performer with the ball, while Mohammad Rizwan (82 not out) and Sohaib Maqsood (61) eased Multan Sultans to victory.
