Cricket Free Tips | PSL 2021, Match 21: Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi

Multan Sultans will take on Peshawar Zalmi in Match 21 of the Pakistan Super League 2021. Multan Sultans are still in contention for a top-four finish, got off to a terrific start in the UAE leg with a win over Karachi Kings. Their batting team is their strength, with players like Rilee Rossouw and Mohammad Rizwan having impressed earlier in the week. The Multan Sultans will enjoy their chances of winning again on Sunday, with Imran Tahir leading the bowling assault impeccably.

Peshawar Zalmi has been hot and cold so far. Ben Dunk and Tim David took Peshawar to the cleaners, although they had Lahore down for the count in the previous encounter. As the PSL 2021 points table takes shape, they’ll be anxious to get back into form as quickly as possible.

 

Weather

In comparison to the first game of the doubleheader, the temperature will be slightly cooler. The weather will be 33 degrees Celsius when the contest begins, and the humidity will be at 66%.

 

Pitch

Although it would be the second PSL 2021 game of the day, the Sheikh Zayed Stadium expects a high-scoring affair. The pacers should keep the batsmen on their toes by moving the ball around. Both teams will want to keep wickets, with the middle overs considered vital for the spinners. Given the dew effect, chasing should be the favoured choice, with 160 being the par score at the site.
