Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi : THE FINAL TALE || Pakistan Super League 2021 Final
Pakistan Super League 2021 Final
Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi – June 24th
THE FINAL TALE:
Peshawar Zalmi have had to take the farsighted path to the PSL 2021 final. They had to get the nicer of Islamabad United and ruling champions Karachi Kings, with Hazratullah Zazai exceling on both instances.
Much like Multan, Zalmi’s bowlers have been crucial to their accomplishment, with Wahab Riaz recording for 18 wickets, just two after Shahnawaz Dhani. Although they might enter into the final as underdogs, they are more than adept of running Multan close and asserting another PSL title.
Possible playing XI: Kamran Akmal (wk), Amad Butt, Shoaib Malik, Jono Wells, Sherfane Rutherford, Umaid Asif, Mohammad Imran, Hazratullah Zazai, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan/Sameen Gul and Rovman Powell.
The Multan Sultans have been the bombshell package in the second part of the PSL. With five victories from six matches, the Sultans are contained by touching space of the PSL crown and will begin the final as the favourites.
While Mohammad Rizwan has excelled with the bat at the top of the order, Multan’s achievement has circled around their bowling line-up. Shahnawaz Dhani has been the absconding star of the PSL this edition, with the speedster even exceeding the wicket-taking tables at the time of writing. With some experience in Rilee Rossouw and Imran Tahir to fall back on, Multan will lavish their prospects in the summit battle.
Possible playing XI: Mohd Rizwan (c&wk), Khushdil Shah, Shahnawaz Dhani, Johnson Charles, Sohail Tanvir, Imran Tahir, Shan Masood, Rilee Rossouw, Sohaib Maqsood, Blessing Muzarabani and Imran Khan.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
The PSL 2021 final will witness Multan Sultans locking horns with Peshawar Zalmi at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
As seen in preceding PSL 2021 knockout matches, the wicket is a great one to bat on, with the fast bowlers anticipated to get some movement, swing and bounce off the pitch. Although the pace bowlers should get the ball to speak early on, the batters will look to take the strike to the bowlers. The spin bowlers will come into action in the middle overs, with the batters aiming the straighter boundaries. Both sides will look to bat first, with 170 being a viable total at this ground.
With the whole shebang to play for at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, we are in for an exhilarating finish to what has been a spectacular PSL 2021 season. Multan Sultans are at the odds of 1.76, while Peshawari Zalmi trail at the odds of 2.10.
It’s a massive final, so it would be all about doing well on the day. Peshawar Zalmi come in with back-to-back victories in the eliminators, so they would have a slight advantage. The two sides shared the accolades when the teams met in the league stages, winning one match apiece.
