Cricket Free Tips | PSL 2021, Match 16: Multan Sultans vs Karachi Kings

The table-topping Karachi Kings will face Multan Sultans in the first match of the doubleheader on Thursday. Multan Sultans have only won one of their five matches despite Mohammad Rizwan’s excellence with the bat. They are currently in fifth place in the standings with two points.

The Karachi Kings have an excellent batting line-up, with Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, and Martin Guptill, and the addition of Thisara Perera to the roster strengthens it even more. They now hold the lead in the rankings with 6 points after 3 victories and 2 losses.

 

Weather

Temperatures will be around the mid-thirties Celsius. As the game progresses, the conditions are unlikely to change significantly. The wind will be blowing at roughly 28 km/h.

 

Pitch

While the Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch in Abu Dhabi has enough to offer batters and bowlers, the batters hold the advantage like any other T20 competition. In the PSL 2020, big scores were recorded, and teams decided to chase. It will be interesting to watch if the current trend continues.

The Karachi Kings appear to be the clear favourites; although they are losing a few key players, they still have solid replacements and in-form players in the squad. If Multan Sultans want to challenge the defending champions, they will need their new signings to play at the top level. Rizwan, however, may not have a reliable bowling attack to keep his team in the game even then. Let’s bet with baji.live now to win BIG!
