Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Match Tips

Each of these two teams has a formidable top order that can not only take advantage of the powerplay but also bat through the innings, mixing power and finesse. Taking this into mind, regardless matter how good the surface at the National Stadium looks from a batting perspective, the team that wins the toss is expected to bowl first.

As was the case last year in the Pakistan leg of the 2021 PSL, the chasing team has benefited from the presence of dew in these night fixtures, making it very difficult for bowlers and fielders to handle a consistently wet ball and making it easier for the batting side to play their shots and manipulate a run chase. As a result, despite the fact that Islamabad United and Multan Sultan are evenly matched on paper, back the team that wins the toss to win this match.
