Multan Sultans, the best bowling competition, may have faced the toughest and perhaps the best batting team in the form of Islamabad United.
The game started and there were some flashbacks of the previous PSL edition when Luke Ronchi sent bowlers over the floor. However, his partners, on the other hand, surrendered to Multan Sultans’ premier bowling attack.
Match 4: Multan’s World-class Bowling Display Limits Islamabad to 125/7
Luke Ronchi reached half a century, but Islamabad was still in trouble at 61/3 and reached 100 runs at 18 at a cost of 7 windows.
Ali Shafiq and Muhammad Irfan were perhaps the bowlers’ elect when they destroyed Islamabad’s batting list and kept their line very close.
Junaid Khan and Shahid Afridi also gathered two windows, but Muhammad Irfan’s economy was best among all after Shafiq.
Ali Shafiq only gave away 11 runs in his 4 overs and picked up 2 wickets.
Islamabad’s long batting match helped them to give lower-level resistance. Faheem Ashraf and Samit Patel scored 20 runs.
Multan Sultans must win 126 runs!
Shoaib Malik won the draw and chose to bat at first against Islamabad United. The Islamabad team has remained unchanged since their first victory over Lahore Qalanadars.
However, Fyn made some changes; Ali Shafiq and Johnson Charles are looking for Multan, Moores and Ilyas.
The play XI is as follows:
Multan Sultans:Shan Masood, Johnson Charles (week), Laurie Evans, Shoaib Malik (k), André Russell, Shahid Afridi, Hammad Azam, Chris Green, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Ali Shafiq
Islamabad State:Luke Ronchi (week), Rizwan Hussain, Cameron Delport, Philip Salt, Talat Hussain, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Samit Patel, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Sami (k), Waqas Maqsood.
