PSL 2018, sixth match: Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United Today

PSL 2018, sixth match: Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United Today

A half-century from Mohammad Hafeez kept the innings together, while supporting roles from Dwayne Smith and Haris Sohail helped Zalmi regroup, but run rate was always a concern.

Peshawar Zlami chairman Javed Afridi has taken this initiative to strengthen the moto of Peshawar Zalmi Foundation - Bring Back Smiles.

The third edition of the PSL will kick-off with Zalmi taking on the newcomers Multan Sultans in the opening game of the tournament at Dubai Cricket Stadium on Thursday. This year, we are told, is that special year when the Qalandars will take the PSL by storm.

The first match of the T20 league will be played on February 22.

Their opening options include Luke Ronchi and Sahibzada Farhan, both of whom have been in top form in limited-overs cricket, with Alex Hales available on the bench as a supplementary player.

But now they have the chance to make amends against Islamabad United.

Karachi Kings were not short on names past year, but they were short on results. Apart from the name, there is nothing new or untested about the players that are part of the Sultans. Multan had thrashed the defending champions in the tournament opener.

Batting first, it was once against Kumar Sangakkara and Shoaib Malik, who stood tall.

Kings were in need of 45 runs on 45 deliveries at a point.

"We cant be overconfident after winning few early matches". However the bigger prize for the PCB and one they are eyeing is to see that the PSL creates the path for the return of worldwide cricket to Pakistan.
