The Multan Cricket Stadium will host the fifth match of the PSL 2023 season on February 17, as Multan Sultans will face Peshawar Zalmi. Both teams will aim to earn two vital points from the upcoming clash.
Multan started their PSL 2023 campaign with a loss but made a comeback in the second game against Quetta Gladiators. Ihsanullah's five-wicket haul helped them restrict the Gladiators to just 110 runs, which Multan chased down with ease. The team will look to continue their momentum from the previous match and register another win.
Probable Playing XI: Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), Shan Masood, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Kieron Pollard, Khushdil Shah, Akeal Hosein, Usama Mir, Sameen Gul, Abbas Afridi, Ihsanullah
Probable Best Performer: Mohammad Rizwan. Rizwan is in fine form, having scored runs consistently in the previous league, the Bangladesh Premier League, and the first PSL 2023 game.
Peshawar Zalmi kicked off their PSL 2023 campaign with a closely contested win over Karachi Kings. The team will look to continue their winning momentum and secure another win in the upcoming clash against Multan Sultans.
Probable Playing XI: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Haris (wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Saim Ayub, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, James Neesham, Shakib Al Hasan, Wahab Riaz, Sufiyan Muqeem, Salman Irshad, Khurram Shahzad
Probable Best Performer: Wahab Riaz. Despite the surface in Multan favouring batters, Wahab's experience and skill could come in handy to get crucial wickets and restrict the opponent's score.
The pitch in Multan is expected to favour the batters, offering full rewards for shot-playing. The ball is likely to come onto the bat fairly well in the contest. Either skipper winning the toss may elect to bat first.
Today's Match Prediction: Multan Sultans to win the match.
