Last year’s runners up Peshawar are placed 3rd with 3 ins in their 5 games. Multan are placed 5th with 2 wins out of 6 games. Since Andre Russell has left for international duty, Multan are underdogs with the bookmakers.
If we look into the stats, there were few streaks broken during the past two games. In matches involving Multan, if the team batting first scores 180+ it has never been chased. This is the case of the 6 instances it happened on Multan’s matches. First time this has been broken as Islamabad United chased down Multan’s score of 200. In PSL 2018, Multan met Peshawar twice and they managed to win both the encounters. But this year has seen a role reversal as Peshawar has won the 1st leg.
Peshwar’s performance this year has been totally dependent on Imam Ul Haq till now. He has scored 50+ in two out of the 3 matches they have won (In the match that he failed the target was only 81). While considering the losses though Imam scored 18 in one and didn’t feature in the other match.
Multan’s middle order is very much playing around Shoaib Malik. Except Dan Christian with the limited opportunities he has got lower down the order, no other middle order batsman seems to be on form. So Multan should consider promoting Christian a little higher.
With Multan gaining slight momentum with their recent win and as they will be looking to take revenge for the 1st leg loss, the Sultans have a slight edge in this game. But one worrying factor is, they haven’t defended any total they have posted in 3 attempts this year. But they have managed to chase down scores in 2 matches and lost only by 7 runs in a big chase.
Match Winner: Multan Sultans @ 2.04 – Best Odds on this match with 12Bet – Take this bet only if they bat 2nd. Else no bet
