Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans : THE CROSS SWORD || Pakistan Super League 2021 Match 3

Pakistan Super League 2021 Match 3

Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Match Prediction – Sun, 21st February

Fervent Sultans:

Multan Sultan will commence their PSL crusade amid high hopes. For beginners, they roped in Chris Lynn to join the roster with James Vince and newly assigned skipper Mohammad Rizwan. With the ranks of Shahid Afridi Shan Masood adding the local panache, the Sultans are picks to win the PSL this edition. Although they have Sohail Tanvir in their squad, their lack of bowling strength could be a concern.

Possible playing XI: Alex Hales, Phil Salt, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan (c), Asif Ali/Iftikhar Ahmed, Hasan Ali, Ali Khan, Hussain Talat, Rohail Nazir (wk), Mohammad Wasim Jr and Zafar Gohar.

Vivacious Islamabad:

Islamabad United is also one of the new desired sides in the PSL. Led by Shadab Khan, Islamabad perhaps has the most formidable batting squad in the contest, with Phil Salt Alex Hales set to open the batting. They have an exceptional blend of youth and experience and promising talent Rohail Nazir being one to look out for in PSL 2021. With Hasan Ali’s inclusion, Islamabad United will lavish their chances on Sunday. 

Possible playing XI: James Vince, Chris Lynn, Khushdil Shah, Rilee Rossouw, Imran Tahir, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Rizwan (c & wk), James Vince, Shahnawaz Dhani, and Usman Qadir.

The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

Match 3 of the 2021 Pakistan Super League (PSL) will see Multan Sultans take on Islamabad United. The match will be played at the National Stadium in Karachi on 21st February Sunday.

A tricky track with some aid on offer for both the batters and bowlers expects the two teams in Karachi. Although the batters will need to keep a watch out for early swing, the new ball would agreeably skid onto the bat. The spin bowlers might have a say in the PSL match results, with some turn obtainable off the wicket.

Batting second is the pattern in the evening fixtures, but the pitch’s temperament might suggest the opposite. 165-175 should be the par score, with the wicket marginally on the slower side, given it will be holding its second match of the day.

Tops Value:

Both franchises are well-matched, with nothing much to discrete them on paper. But Multan Sultans’ exceptional depth might just give them the advantage against a new-view Islamabad United team. With two crucial points up for grabs, one more exciting PSL game summons at the National Stadium on Sunday.

Multan Sultan, with the experience, filled team, enter this contest as the favourites with the odds of 1.76, while Islamabad United is at the odds of 2.00.

Multan Sultans are the only PSL team that is yet to appear in a PSL final. With their analytics-oriented methodology and a mish-mash of brilliant rookies and experienced troupers, they would be keen to make a dent in PSL 2021. The big-hitting Australian star, Chris Lynn, will be critical considering his exploits.
