Multan Sultans face an uphill task to topple Karachi Kings - get fantasy tips, predictions
Table-toppers Karachi Kings (KAR) take on Multan Sultans (MUL), who are languishing near the bottom of the table, in match 16 of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday, June 10.
MUL had lost four of their first five matches before the tournament was halted. The break might work in their favour as they will expect their revamped unit to turn things around. They currently have two points with a lone win to their name.
KAR are placed at the top of the table with three wins and two losses. This is going to be their first match in the second half of the PSL and they will be looking to start off on a winning note. They earlier defeated MUL by seven wickets in their previous meeting and that should stand them in good stead.
MUL vs KAR Dream11 prediction
It’s a fight between the teams who are at the top and bottom of the table and it appears to be a one-sided contest on offer. KAR defeated MUL earlier by seven wickets and in a fresh encounter this time after a brief break, they are expected to dominate the opposition just like in the previous occasion.
MUL vs KAR best players for PSL 2021 fantasy team
Top tip: Best batsmen
MUL batsman Sohaib Maqsood is the batsman to watch out for. He scored an unbeaten 27-ball 34 in his previous innings against the same opposition and is due for a big score anytime soon. Having him in your fantasy squad could prove to be a smart option.
Babar Azam is the batsman to watch out for KAR. He scored an unbeaten 60-ball 90 at a strike rate of 150 against MUL and will be looking to repeat his heroics once again. He leads from the front and is a definite pick for any fantasy side.
Top tip: Best bowlers
Fast bowler Shahnawaz Dhani is the bowler who can turn the match in favour of MUL. He took 2/28 the last time these sides met, although in a losing cause. He will be raring to go and hope to end up on the winning side this time around.
For KAR, Arshad Iqbal is the bowler to be wary of. He took 2/36 in his last outing against MUL and can prove to be a roadblock for their plans once again. He could be a smart choice in your fantasy side.
Top tip: All-rounder and wicket-keeper
MUL wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan is the best pick in this category. He is an attacking batsman at the top of the order and extremely quick behind the stumps too. He scored a 32-ball 43 in his last match versus KAR besides also affecting a dismissal.
Thisara Perera could prove to be a brilliant all-round option for KAR. He is a good finisher and chips in with useful overs and that could give some valuable points to fantasy team owners.
MUL vs KAR probable playing XI
Multan Sultans playing XI (probable): Mohd Rizwan (captain & wicket-keeper), Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Shan Masood, Shimron Hetmyer, Sohaib Maqsood, Khushdil Shah, Shahnawaz Dhani, Imran Tahir, Usman Qadir, Sohail Khan, Imran Khan
