Match Prediction & Tips
This looks like a good match up to us despite how the first 2 games have gone.
Match Result: Multan Sultans to win 1/1*.
The Sultans have actually performed okay despite losing twice. We’ve watched both games and thought they did okay. In the first match, they lost with an over to spare and had taken 7 wickets. The 150 they scored did always look 15 runs short on that wicket.
In the next match, they managed an excellent score of 193/4. That looked like it would be good enough to win the match but they just failed to take enough wickets later on in the match to get over the line.
They had them at 154/3 then 160/4 and it looked like the match was swinging in their favour. Unfortunately for them they didn’t take any more wickets and lost with an over to spare again.
Multan Sultans 180/4
Lahore Qalandars 170/7
An extra tip that caught our eye –
- Tip 1: Chris Lynn to hit a 6 4/7*
Big hitter Lynn is usually a safe bet in the PSL and is always looking to go over the ropes.
- Tip 2: Shaheen Afridi over 1.5 wickets 11/10
Currently averaging 2 wickets per match and the tournaments top wicket taker.
