Multan Sultans will take on Karachi Kings in the League Match of PSL 2021, aka Pakistan Super League which will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
MUL vs KAR Match Preview
The Kings have been severely hampered by the absence of their key players for the PSL’s Abu Dhabi leg. However, they have found sufficient replacements. Instead of Colin Ingram, Mohammad Nabi, Dan Christian, and Joe Clarke, the franchise will field Martin Guptill, Najibullah Zadran, and Thisara Perera in the upcoming matches in the tournament.
Multan Sultans, on the other hand, have just won one of their five games in the tournament. Mohammad Rizwan is on the top of his game, whereas they have lost the services of Vince, Lynn, Afridi, and Brathwaite with the West Indies-dominated contingent of Shimron Hetmyer, Johnson Charles, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Obed McCoy taking their place.
With three wins from five games and a net run rate of +0.697, the Kings are currently sitting at the top of the points table. The Sultans have had woefully different fortunes, and are placed at second last spot with only one win from five PSL 2021 games.
