Multan Sultans won only one of their first five matches in the 2021 Pakistan Super League (PSL). However, the Mohammad Rizwan-led unit not only qualified for the playoffs but also made the final.
In their last game, they will be locking horns with the Peshawar Zalmi on Thursday, June 24. In their previous match, the Sultans rolled over Islamabad United and should be high on confidence.
In the meanwhile, the Zalmi should also have their spirits high after beating the United by eight wickets with as many as 19 balls to spare. The final is expected to be an absolute thriller.

The pitch in Abu Dhabi has been an excellent one for batting with bowlers finding it tough to maintain control. Since it’s a must-win encounter, teams should look to put runs on the board and then exert pressure on the opposition. Hitting boundaries should not be a problem and a high-scoring match seems to be on the cards.
