If any further news we shall update it shortly. Check Important News section 30 minutes before the deadline.
- In wicket keeper section Sangakkara should be a direct choice. Sarfraz is not at his best and even he bats at middle order. Sangakkara played well in first two matches and he is in good form.
- In batting from Multan Sultans Shehzad Ahmed is only looking safe. Darren Bravo is a good batsman but he is not at his best. He can play good innings at any time. Maqsood played good innings in his first match and then failed in next two matches. It is being very tough to get runs on this wicket so Shehzad and Bravo are good. From Quetta Gladiators Shafiq, Umar Amin, Pietersen and Rossouw are the options available. Take any two from them. Otherwise if you are choosing only Shehzad from Multan Sultans then take any three from Quetta Gladiators.
- In all rounder section from Multan Sultans Shoaid Malik should be mandatory. Pollard is a very dangerous person but Multan Sultans are not using him properly. From Quetta Gladiators Watson is a direct pick. Don’t stop him at any cost. Nawaz is another good all rounder and he is showing consistency.
- In bowling section from Multan Sultans Tanvir, Tahir, Junaid and Irfan all are good. Tahir is in good form and this wicket is a slow one. Once again he can be crucial here. From Quetta Gladiators Rahat and Anwar are only looking safe. Try Laughlin is grand leagues.
Prediction : Both teams are looking strong on paper. Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators both teams are strong teams. We can expect a tough fight so this can be a 50 / 50 game.
