Multan Sultans are placed fifth in the points table with their solitary win coming against the Lahore Qalandars in February.

They have bolstered their batting lineup with the addition of overseas players such as Johnson Charles, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Rilee Rossouw and Shimron Hetmyer.

The Sultans' pace department will be led by Obed McCoy, Sohail Tanvir and Usman Qadir, while South African legend Imran Tahir will lead the spin duties in the UAE leg.

Karachi Kings, on the other hand, are the most successful team in the history of the PSL. They currently find themselves atop the PSL points table with three wins and two losses from five games.

The Kings are the strongest and most consistent team in the PSL and are the favorites to win the 2021 edition of the league.

Babar Azam, Chadwick Walton, Martin Guptill, Najibullah Zadran and Sharjeel Khan will form the team's top-order. They will have to score runs in bulk for their side to ensure the team gets to a challenging total.

The Kings' pace attack consists of Mohammad Amir and Aamer Yamin, while Danish Aziz, Waqas Maqsood and Noor Ahmad will be the spinners in action. The Kings will also rely on the experience of Thisara Perera, who can contribute with the bat and the ball.
