PSL 2018: Match 11 - Multan Sultans v Karachi Kings
Multan Sultans will be hoping to return back to winning ways when they face Karachi Kings in the 11th match of the Pakistan Super League in Sharjah.
The new franchise of the tournament started the campaign with back to back wins but their batting let them down in the game against Islamabad United. Only Shoaib Malik and Kieron Pollard showed some resilience in the middle while the rest of the batting capitulated to pace of Rumman Raees and Mohammad Sami. Eight out of the 11 batsmen could manage only single-digit scores and in the end, they could manage just 113 and despite Imran Tahir, who continued to impress with another three-wicket haul. Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan and Sohail Tanvir will once again be the key component in their bowling attack.
Karachi Kings, on the other hand, have been the best team of the tournament with three straight wins. Even though the batting unit has never clicked collectively, the likes of Ravi Bopara and Colin Ingram are helping them recover from the top order failure. They will be expecting more from Shahid Afridi, though he continued to impress with the ball. Usman Khan and Tymal Mills have been impressive with the new ball and another win on Friday can separate them from the rest of the sides.
