Islamabad United go in having won eight out of their 10 matches and the last five in a row. In contrast, after struggling in the Karachi leg, Multan Sultans won four out of their last five matches in Abu Dhabi to secure a top-two finish.
Islamabad United and Multan Sultans, in fact, faced each other in their last league match. Islamabad United brought an end to Multan Sultans’ four-match winning streak, clinching victory by four wickets.
Mohammad Wasim Jr’s brilliant bowling effort of 4 for 31 restricted Multan Sultans to 149, despite Shan Masood’s 59.
Even though Islamabad United had rested a number of their key players for the match, they still managed to get home. Skipper Shadab Khan top-scored with 35, while Hussain Talat contributed 34.
Islamabad United will thus take a lot of confidence going into the Qualifier against Multan Sultans.
