Preview:

In Match 14 of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), Multan Sultans face Quetta Gladiators  at the National Stadium, Karachi. This match is essentially a battle of two lower-rung teams as both the teams are struggling at the bottom half of the table. While the Gladiators have lost all their 3 games in this PSL, Multan have won only 1 game out of 4 matches. This is a battle of survival as a further slump in the table, would crash the team’s chances of making it to the playoffs.

All the matches in this tournament so far have been won by the chasing team and the toss-winning captain should essentially bowl first. Multan have had a solid, fiery top-order but their middle order has been susceptible. In their previous game against Karachi Kings, Multan openers and top-order amassed a powerful start. But the fag end of the innings was marred by a poor run rate and Multan could manage 195. The Kings then comfortably chased it down.

Led by Sarfraz Ahmed, Quetta Gladiators have not been in the best of form this season. They need to re-group and come back stronger if they are to be in the pecking order of qualifying. The skipper scored a fantastic 81 in their previous game and was aided by Azam Khan, who scored 47 runs. Bowling issues need to be resolved for Quetta.
