Pakistan Super League 2021 Match 9
Karachi Kings vs Multan Sultans United Match Prediction – Sat, 27th February
The Karachi Kings have triumphed in one of their two PSL 2021 matches so far, with their batting squad faring well on both outings. Although Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan are essential to the defending champions’ destinies, the Karachi Kings’ exceptional squad depth takes them in a good position.
Karachi Kings will look to vault back from an upset Pakistan Super League loss when they take on Multan Sultans. They started in a resounding fashion, but everyone who believed they would find it comfortable was given a reality check on how T20 games can stun.
Possible playing XI: Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Imad Wasim (C), Mohammad Nabi, Daniel Christian, Arshad Iqbal, Mohd Amir, Colin Ingram, Joe Clarke (WK), Waqas Maqsood, and Aamer Yamin.
The Multan Sultans have finally recorded one win in the current edition of PSL, squandering both their initial games; they managed to make a comeback. Despite getting the likes of Shahid Afridi, James Vince, and Chris Lynn in their roster, they have adulated to deceive so far. Despite their apathetic start, captain Mohammed Rizwan looks in terrific touch, and even Sohaib Maqsood entered the bash in their last game.
The Multan Sultans’ bowling appears to be a concern, with Sohail Tanvir yielding 11.14 runs an over deprived of a wicket. And the other bowlers, too, have lacked stability, failing to step up at critical times.
Possible playing XI: Mohd Rizwan (C&WK), Chris Lynn, Shahid Afridi/Sohail Khan, Rilee Rossouw, Khushdil Shah, Sohail Tanvir, Usman Qadir, James Vince, Sohaib Maqsood Shahnawaz Dhani, and Imran Tahir.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
A high-scoring match is anticipated at the National Stadium in Karachi on Saturday with a new pitch in place. Though the speedsters could get some early movement, the batters should enjoy the ball going onto the bat. As the game develops, the spin bowlers should also come into work. Batting first would be the perfect choice upon winning the toss, with 165-175 being a modest total at the ground.
On current form, the Kings are the favourites for Saturday’s clash. But the Mohammad Rizwan-led Sultans are a strength to reckon with in this setup. With two precious points up for steals, another banging game summons in PSL 2021.
Karachi Kings enter this game as the favourites at the odds of 1.74, whereas Multan Sultans are at 2.10. Multan Sultans’ victory against Lahore Qalandars yesterday has made a bold statement. Mohammad Rizwan has led the team from the front and is the man to watch out for. His form, and the likes of Chris Lynn, along with James Vince, hold the ability to upset any odds rated by the sportsbook.
Also, with the tendency of chasers winning games, it will be wise to place bets after the toss, as we reckon the trend may continue.
