PSL3: Multan Sultans to clash with Quetta Gladiators tonight
Dubai (Web Desk): Table-toppers Multan Sultans go up against Quetta Gladiators at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium tonight.
Multan Sultans, the newest PSL’s franchise, top the points table with four wins from six games. Shoaib Malik’s Sultans have lost only one match so far in PSL and shared one point with Karachi Kings after their game was called off due to rain.
Quetta Gladiators, are lacking the spark which they carried with them last season, this season Gladiators secured only four points with their five games. They will have to beat Sultans in today’s game to stay in contention for the top two slots
A 19-run victory over Peshawar Zalmi last night consolidated Multan’s top spot on the points table, powered by Sohaib Maqsood’s knock of 85 not out off 42 balls.
They have lost 3 and won 2 matches out of 5 matches, and sit at fifth position.
