MS vs PZ Match Preview

The Multan Sultans have excelled in all aspects of the game. Their batting lineup is particularly strong, with key players such as Mohammad Rizwan, Usman Khan, and Johnson Charles leading the charge. Rizwan has been outstanding, scoring 366 runs and achieving 4 half-centuries this season, including one in the recent match.

Johnson Charles, despite playing only 2 matches, has contributed 95 runs to the team. However, some other batsmen like Yasir Shah, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Tayyab Tahir have struggled to maintain consistency. Moving on to the bowling department, Usama Mir and Mohammad Ali have been impressive with 21 and 17 wickets respectively.

Their efforts have been well-supported by David Willey and Abbas Afridi, solidifying Multan's position as one of the most formidable bowling units in the league.

Babar Azam, who has been in exceptional form, has been at the forefront of Peshawar Zalmi's success this season, accumulating an impressive total of 498 runs at an average of 62.25. His remarkable performances include 5 half-centuries and a century. Saim Ayub, his opening partner, has also provided valuable support, and together they aim to provide Peshawar with a strong start.

However, despite the presence of experienced batsmen like Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Mohammad Haris, and Rovman Powell in the middle order, the team has struggled with consistency. This inconsistency raises concerns for the team's performance.

Similarly, the bowling department has also faced its fair share of inconsistency. Luke Wood and Naveen Ul-Haq, who lead the attack with the new ball, have managed to secure only 20 wickets collectively. Additionally, Aamer Jamal, Mehran Mumtaz, and Saim Ayub have often struggled to maintain pressure during the middle overs.

The pitch in Karachi is well-balanced. The seamers will get some help early on in the match as there is a good amount of pace and bounce on offer. The batsmen will need to be a bit careful when they select their shots. Things will improve for them once the ball gets older.
