Pakistan T20 League 2024

Match 21: MUL vs PES

 

Preview

The 21st match of the ongoing Pakistan T20 League will be played between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi. The game will be hosted at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, March 5. 

MUL are presently holding the first position on the points table with six wins and only one loss in seven matches. They won their previous fixture by a margin of 20 runs. In the game, Multan batted first and drafted a total of 189 runs for a loss of 3 wickets. Usman Khan smashed 106 runs in just 59 balls to take his side to a defending total. He hit 10 fours and 5 sixes during his power-packed innings. 

Karachi lost frequent wickets which made their winning an unachievable dream as the game progressed.  With a few 20-plus knocks from the middle-order batters, they fell short of 20 runs at the end to lose the match against the Sultans. 

Peshawar are sitting in fourth place in the league table with 3 wins from 7 matches. The Babar Azam-led side lost their last game against Islamabad United by 29 runs. While batting first, ISL posted a huge total of 196 runs losing 4 wickets. PES lost their swiftness right from the beginning and lost 5 wickets for just 18 runs. A few positives from the game was their fighting mentality which was shown by Aamir Jamal and Paul Walter who scored 87 and 33 runs respectively.

Match Prediction

Previously in this season, PES have beaten Rizwan’s side by 5 runs but looking at their current form we don’t expect them to repeat the same. The Sultans have powerful batters and an explosive bowling arsenal which is tough to compete against but we are not ruling out the possibility of Peshawar getting away with the game, as they are the only side to defeat MUL, this season. Considering all prospects we fancy the table-toppers Multan Sultans to win this encounter.
