Key Players

Babar Azam

Babar Azam has been in the form of his life and is one of the star batters in the World. His side didn’t do as well as expected last season, and Babar Azam will want to fight back making use of his batting powers, to help win a title for Karachi. He will be up against a good friend of his and will want to get the better of him early in the tournament.

Mohammad Rizwan

Multan’s captain will be just as eager as his opposite number in a bid to get the better of his long-time opening partner in white-ball Cricket. Rizwan has seen some strong success in recent times but has faced his own set of struggles to get to where he is. He started with a lot of confusion around his batting performance, but has now made the opening spot his own, and will look to set games up solidly for his sides.

Team News

Both sides have a set of players on international duty due to the ongoing West Indies Vs England series. In their absence, the two sides will get to test their depth as they bring in some of their uncapped players. Both teams have some strong all-rounders, and the Karachi Kings Vs Multan Sultans fixture will see a match-up between two sides that have some new faces in a bid to build their squad depth.

Karachi Kings Vs Multan Sultans Match Tips

The two captains are safe picks as they can be expected to score well along with Mohammad Amir and his ability to pick up wickets. With dew a factor, the side bowling first stands the greatest chance of winning. Looking at form and bowling attack, Karachi has a slight edge, and the odds favor them a touch.
