MUL vs QUE 3rd Match Probable Winners:
Given that this wicket will ensure that the winning team will have to be led to the line by the batting lineup and spin bowling attack, the Multan Sultans contain a balanced mix of anchors and power hitters. Moreover, the likes of Usama Mir have already played on this track in the competition and will have an idea of how to use the pitch to their benefit. This is just why we predict Sultan to register their fourth consecutive win over Quetta Gladiators. That being said, the Gladiators do have the assets at their disposal to cause an upset early on. Considering the team combination, Quetta Gladiators is expected to win this match.
