Match 14 of the Pakistan T20 League will see two struggling teams – Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators, lock horns against each other. Both the teams started the tournament on a really disappointing note as they are reeling at the bottom of the table. It will be an exciting watch as two teams, looking to find some form, square off in Karachi on Wednesday.
After securing their first win of the season against the Qalandars, Multan Sultans returned to losing ways after failing to defend a total of 195 against Karachi Kings. All their batsmen chipped in with vital contributions as Rizwan (43), Lynn (32), Vince (45) and Maqsood (34*) guided Sultans to a mammoth total. However, the bowling department failed miserably as Kings chased the target comfortably with 7 deliveries to spare.
Quetta Gladiators have been utterly shambolic in the first few matches of Pakistan T20 League this season. They completed a hat-trick of losses after their defeat at the hands of Peshawar Zalmi on Friday. Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed led from the front and played a brilliant 81-run knock to power Gladiators to 198/7. But the bowling department failed to defend the total as Steyn, Hasnain, Shinwari and Cutting went for more than 10 RPO.
While Gladiators have a slight edge in head-to-head (3-2), Sultans were the winners in the last meeting between the two sides.
