ISL vs MUL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for Today match.
Islamabad United and Multan Sultans will play in the Qualifier match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Islamabad United is in great form as they have won eight out of the ten matches and finished the league stage at the top of the points table. Moreover, they won the last five consecutive matches.
Both the openers Munro and Khawaja, have been in good form and have played exceptional knocks this season. Akhlaq batted decently in the last match and might get another chance at No.3. run.
Iftikhar Ahmed and Asif Ali have scored consistently and at a reasonable run rate in the last few matches in the middle-order. Brandon King is the new addition to the team and played brilliantly in one of the matches. Finally, after many games, Shadab Khan performed with the bat.
The bowling department, after a couple of disappointing performances, bowled well in the last match. Hasan Ali is the crucial wicket-taker of the team, and Wasim Jr has also performed well so far this season and picked up four wickets in the last match. In addition, Faheem Ashraf picked up two wickets, and Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed managed to pick up one wicket each.
Islamabad is the current favorite for the title winners, and it would be a challenge for the remaining teams to defeat them.
Sultans performed brilliantly towards the end of the tournament, finished the league stage at the 2nd position on the points table, and faced Islamabad United in the Qualifier.
Skipper Rizwan opened the innings for MUL and is also the wicketkeeper and has to lead his team ideally by scoring consistently from the top. His partner, Shan Masood, was also batting well and scored a fifty in the last match. At No.3, Sohaib Maqsood has continued the excellent start provides by the openers by batting aggressively.
The middle-order has not been able to deliver decent performances consistently. Johnson Charles played well in one of the innings; Rossouw scored decently in some matches but hasn’t played a big inning even once so far this season. Khushdil Shah was handy with the bat when he got the chance.
The bowling department is one of the best bowling attacks in the tournament. Shahnawaz and Tahir are the crucial wicket-takers. Imran Khan has also contributed well by picking up wickets in some games, and Muzarabani is also picking up wickets consistently from the last few matches.
If the middle-order of Multan Sultans performs well, then there is a high chance that they might win the Qualifier.
