Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction PSL- Multan Sultans v Peshawar Zalmi
Both times that Multan Sultans faced Peshawar Zalmi in the last season of the Pakistan Super League, they were successful in winning the matches.
However, the bowlers of Multan Sultans will be under a lot of pressure in this match after failing to defend 200 against Lahore Qalandars in the last match. They have only been able to win one out of their four matches till now.
On the other hand, Peshawar Zalmi have won two and lost two. They lost their last game against Islamabad United when they fell considerably short of the 159-run target.
That being said, Multan Sultans seem to have found their opening combination in English batsman James Vince and local wicketkeeper-batsman Umar Siddiq. Both of them stitched a 135-run partnership the last time out and notched up half-centuries.
Apart from them, Shoaib Malik has already scored two half-centuries in the tournament. The team also has the power of Andre Russell and Laurie Evans in the middle order. Among the bowlers, Junaid Khan and Mohammad Irfan would lead the pack.
Peshawar Zalmi would hope Kamran Akmal to pile up more runs after his 49-run knock in the first match. Keiron Pollard showed his class with a 22-ball 51 in the last game and would be expected to be a bit more consistent along with Imam-ul-Haq and Umar Amin,.
In the bowling department, Hasan Ali has already distinguished himself by picking up 11 wickets. Wahab Riaz also has seven scalps.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.
Multan Sultans- Umar Siddiq, James Vince, Shoaib Malik, Andre Russell, Laurie Evans, Dan Christian, Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan Khan, Mohammad Ilyas
