MS vs KK Match Preview

The Multan Sultans will once again be under the leadership of wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan, a versatile player who can bat at any position. The team boasts a strong lineup of local talent, including Yasir Shah, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Khushdil Shah.

In addition to the local players, the team also has quality international batsmen like Dawid Malan and Reeza Hendricks. However, the middle order lacks a quality all-rounder, with David Willey being the only international option available. Unfortunately, the team will be missing two of their top seamers, Ihsanullah and Reece Topley, due to injuries.

Chris Jordan and Shahnawaz Dahani are expected to lead the new-ball attack, while Usama Mir and Faisal Akram will be key players in the spin department.

The Karachi Kings have bolstered their middle order by acquiring the services of Kieron Pollard and Daniel Sams, two quality all-rounders. Apart from their finishing abilities, they can also make significant contributions with the ball.

Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Nawaz, seasoned players in the PSL, will also be part of the team. Shan Masood and James Vince are expected to open the batting and aim to score quickly in the Powerplay overs. Unfortunately, the pace attack has suffered a setback with Jamie Overton's withdrawal due to injury.

This will increase the pressure on Hasan Ali and Mir Hamza to deliver with the new ball. However, the team can rely on a strong spin attack led by Tabraiz Shamsi and Arafat Minhas.
