ABU DHABI – Defending champions Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans will face each other in the 16th T20 game at Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 on Thursday (today) at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.
Kings, under left-handed batsman Imad Wasim, are eyeing the top spot in the table, with six points from five matches they have played so far whereas Sultans have managed to win just two points out of the five matches. The Karachi Kings had a good run in the first phase of the tournament, winning three out of their five games while struggling Sultans had managed to win just one of the five games it played in the first leg.

Meanwhile, New Zealand cricketer Martin Guptill will surely add some value to team Karachi as they will be without Joe Clarke. Mohammad Nabi, Daniel Christian, and Colin Ingram are also Kings’s squad. Mohammad Amir will be among the key bowlers for the franchise.
On the other side, Shahid Afridi, Vince, Lynn, and Brathwaite will not play for Sultans but Mohammad Rizwan along with Shimron Hetmyer and Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be the key players for the team’s batting line.
Chances for Sultans are also not vast in today’s game as Karachi Kings won seven out of the eight games so far.
