Match 21 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 has the Multan Sultans taking on Peshawar Zalmi at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
Multan Sultans, who are still in contention for a top-four finish, had a great start to the UAE leg of their PSL 2021 campaign with a win over Karachi Kings. Their strength lies in their batting unit, with the likes of Rilee Rossouw and Mohammad Rizwan impressing earlier in the week. With Imran Tahir leading the bowling attack impeccably, the Multan Sultans will fancy their chances of yet another win on Sunday.
Their opponents, Peshawar Zalmi, have blown hot and cold in PSL 2021 so far. Although they had Lahore down for the count in the previous game, Peshawar were taken to the cleaners by Ben Dunk and Tim David. They will be itching to get back into form as soon as possible as the PSL 2021 points table slowly takes shape.

Match: Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi, Match 21
Date and Time: 13th June 2021, at 11:30 PM IST
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Jayed
Although it will be the second PSL 2021 game of the day, a relatively high-scoring match beckons at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. The pacers should get the ball to move around, keeping the batsmen on their toes. Both teams will look to keep wickets in hand, with the spinners expected to play a crucial role in the middle overs. Chasing should be the preferred option, given the dew factor, with 160 being a par score at the venue.
