Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans, PSL 2021

Islamabad United and Multan Sultans, after completely contrasting campaigns last season, are the last two teams to get their 2021 Pakistan Super League challenges underway. The match, between the teams who finished sixth and first in the league table last season, takes place at the National Stadium, Karachi, on February 21 and the live action starts at 19:00 local time.

Islamabad United were bottom of the pile last season, and though they have added Alex Hales to their ranks this season, they have seen Colin Munro, Chris Jordan and Reece Topley all have to withdraw – Paul Stirling and Ali Khan link up with the squad instead.

For Multan Sultans, they could not back their table-topping form up in the play-offs, but their best campaign yet could stand them in good stead for this year. BBL-winning star James Vince is looking for back-to-back T20 titles, in what looks a very strong batting line-up.

With Colin Munro, Reece Topley and Chris Jordan having to withdraw from the IPL, Ali Khan and Paul Stirling are likely to start this game. Alex Hales will open the batting after his arrival for the 2021 season too.

ISU Key Players

  • Alex Hales: In fine form at the Big Bash League, including smashing a century for Sydney Thunder against Sydney Sixers, the big-hitting opener will be key again up the order.
  • Paul Stirling: A late arrival to join Hales up the order, but the Irishman has repeatedly proved his importance in T20 cricket.
  • Ali Khan: Another late addition, but the American paceman arrives in fine form after starring the the Abu Dhabi T10 League.

ISU Team Form

Islamabad United were in dismal form last season, finishing bottom of the table with just three wins from their nine completed games.

MS Team News

Mohammad Rizwan has replaced Shan Masood as captain of a team that should have Chris Lynn and James Vince together at the top of the batting order.

  • Mohammad Rizwan: Hammered 104*, 51 and 42 in the three T20i matches for Pakistan against South Africa and will hope to transfer his fine international form to PSL level.

Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Top Team Batsmen

Islamabad United’s batting is undoubtedly stronger for having Alex Hales leading it, and he is the big favourite to be their top team batsman.

Multan Sultans, meanwhile, have James Vince – second only to Hales in the Big Bash run-scoring charts this season – and Chris Lynn, who was also in good form. Mohammad Rizwan is also in fine form and all three are top options with the bat.

Alex Hales is big favourite to be Islamabad United’s top team batsman with Betway and Bet365 and that is no surprise given the fine batting form he was in at the Big Bash League. Likely opening partner Paul Stirling is next on the list.

For Multan Sultans, meanwhile, Chris Lynn, James Vince and Mohammad Rizwan all arrive in top form. Vince and Rizwan in particular have been at their absolute best in the last couple of weeks and could be top choices for top team batsman.

Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Top Team Bowlers

Islamabad United’s Hasan Ali is favourite to be their top team bowler, while Shadab Khan – the captain – is next on the list.

Multan Sultans’ veterans are their top two picks, with Imran Tahir leading the spin-bowling department and Sohail Tanvir the top paceman.

Hasan Ali is favourite to be Islamabad United’s top team bowler, while their spin pairing – Shadab Khan and Fawad Ahmed – are also good options.

Imran Tahir’s T20 bowling consistency, all over the globe, makes him favourite for Multan Sultans but if the pacemen shine then it will be Sohail Tanvir instead.

Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Prediction

Multan Sultans have firepower up the order and experience with the ball, and they can start this tournament with a win

Final Verdict

Multan Sultans are favorites to win against Islamabad United. Back Multan Sultans to beat Islamabad United at 1.90.

ISU vs MS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Mohammad Rizwan is in outstanding form with the bat and he is definitely the top pick of the three wicket-keepers. He is 9.5 credits but an absolute must-pick.

  • Batsmen

    Also in fine batting form are Islamabad United opener Alex Hales and Multan Sultans’ James Vince – both of whom starred in the Big Bash League. Neither was selected by England to face India, and England’s loss ins their respective teams’ gain. Paul Stirling and Rilee Rossouw are popular T20 guns to hire, meanwhile

  • All rounder

    Shadab Khan leads Islamabad United and he and Shahid Afridi, with their experience, batting firepower and economical spin bowling, are hard to ignore.

  • Bowlers

    Imran Tahir and Sohail Tanvir lend their experience to the Multan Sultans’ bowling line-up and both are key picks. Hasan Ali, meanwhile, is Islamabad United’s top bowler on paper. That leaves enough for one more 8.5-credit pick, and Sohail Khan fits the billing.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Alex Hales, Mohammad Rizwan and James Vince are all hard to ignore given their fine form. Rizwan is the top pick for captain, given his wicket-keeping too, while Vince’s stunning ending to the Big Bash League makes him a top vice-captain choice.

ISU vs MS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales, James Vince (vc), Paul Stirling, Rilee Rossouw

  • All Rounder:Shadab Khan, Shahid Afridi

  • Wicket Keeper:Mohammad Rizwan (c)

  • Bowler:Imran Tahir, Sohail Tanvir, Hasan Ali, Sohail Tanvir
