Multan Sultans are set to clash with Quetta Gladiators in the 28th match of the Pakistan Super League 8 at Pindi Cricket Stadium tonight, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
A confident Multan Sultans team led by Mohammad Rizwan will play the match with confidence as they had already qualified for the playoffs after outclasshing Peshawar Zalmi on Friday.
Multan Sultans are ranked at third place on the points table after winning five matches out of the nine they had played so far.
Peshawar Zalmi miserably failed to defend a massive 240-run total as the Sultans surpassed the target by four wickets and stormed into the PSL8 playoffs.
The thriller was watched by another full-house at the Pindi Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Rilee Rossouw hit the fastest PSL century off 41 balls, improving his own record by two balls, and Kieron Pollard blasted a 25-ball 52 as Multan Sultans achieved the 243-run target with five balls to spare. Multan Sultans needed 18 off two overs and three runs in the last over.
On the other hand, Quetta Gladiators seemed under pressure as they had won only three out of their nine matches. However, the Sarfaraz Ahmed’s team would attempt to make a comeback in today’s match in a bid to qualify for the next round.
