Peshawar Zalmi does look to have a better batting depth than the Sultans entering Match 5. However, the latter side has been more impressive despite losing their first game. Given that the Multan Cricket Stadium has shown to be a fortress for the batsmen, the outcome is likely to depend upon the performance of the top-order batsman of both sides. Moreover, with the game being played in their backyard, with the head-to-head also favoring them, we predict that the Multan Sultan would beat the Peshawar Zalmi in this upcoming match. Considering the team combination, Peshawar Zalmi is expected to win this match.
