The Multan Sultans take on the Islamabad United in the sixth game of the third season of the Pakistan Super League 2018. This match will be played on February 25 at Dubai. The match will begin at 4:30 pm PST (11.30 am GMT).
It has been a contrasting start for the two teams involved in this game. The Multan Sultans, who are playing in their first ever season of the PSL have begun the season with two wins from two matches while the Islamabad United didn’t just lose but they lost big.
The margin of defeat for the United might not been as huge as the loss actually was – to give you a perspective at the halfway stage of the Islamabad chase against Peshawar they needed to score the second highest ever runs in the final 10 overs made in PSL history.
It was only Fahim Ashraf’s late heroics with the bat when the game was already lost that helped the side get closer to a respectable defeat.
The Islamabad United coaching staff will need to come up with a better performing team than was on offer obviously but the good news for them is that both, their batting and their bowling came better in the second of the innings. When they were bowling they conceded 100 in the first 10 but managed to pull things back with just 76 from the next 10.
Then, when they came out to bat, they lost four wickets early but later in the innings, they managed to pull some runs back through Ashraf as mentioned above.
On the other hand, Multan have surprised everyone. They began with a win over the defending champions Peshawar Zalmi and then brushed aside the Lahore Qalandars in the second.
What makes it interesting is that the Multan Sultans’ wins were both big ones; one by seven wickets and the other 43 runs. Kumar Sangakkara chased the target down against the Zalmis while Imran Tahir grabbed three wickets against the Lahore Qalandars.
Can they make it three wins in a row? Should be an interesting match up. Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United 6th match prediction, betting tips & preview are placed below.
