A confident Multan Sultans will face Lahore Qalandars in Match 28 of PSL 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Multan Sultans are full of conviction having registered a hat-trick of wins. Lahore Qalandars, on the other hand, have lost their way, having gone down to Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators.
If one glances at the points table, Multan Sultans have registered four wins and as many losses from eight games. They have been absolutely brilliant in the Abu Dhabi leg. Lahore Qalandars are still above Multan Sultans in the points table, having won five of their eight matches. However, Sohail Akhtar's men will be keen to get their rhythm back.
In their previous game, Multan Sultans hammered Quetta Gladiators by 110 runs to give their net run rate a major fillip. A brilliant knock of 73 by Shan Masood and Johnson Charles’ fiery 47 took them to 183 for 5, batting first. Imran Tahir (3/7) and Imran Khan (2/13) then ran through the Quetta Gladiators’ batting.
Lahore Qalandars did well to restrict Quetta Gladiators to 158, but their batting faltered rather badly. James Faulkner (3/25) has continued to impress with the ball but, apart from Tim David (46), no one could stand up with the bat.
