Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans, PSL 2021

Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi are both looking to bounce back to winning ways in the Pakistan Super League after their respective opening defeats. The two teams meet in their second game of the group stage at Karachi’s National Stadium on February 23. The match starts at 19:00 local time.

Multan Sultans are looking to go one better than last season when, despite topping the table for the first time, they missed out on reaching the final after two play-off defeats. Mohammad Rizwan continued his fine form with 71 from 53 balls in the opening game against Islamabad United but the Sultans could not defend 150/8 – slipping to a three-wicket loss with an over to spare.

Peshawar Zalmi, meanwhile, could not make Ravi Bopara’s half-century and Saqib Mahmood’s 2-22 count for points in their first game. They posted 140/6, and lost to Lahore Qalandars by four wickets with nine balls still to bowl.

Peshawar Zalmi Team News & Playing 11

PSZ Team News

With no Liam Livingstone, replacement Tom Kohler-Cadmore did not make the cut last time out as Zalmi instead turned to Sherfane Rutherford. Mohammad Imran made his T20 debut and could be handed a second opportunity.

PSZ Key Players

  • Shoaib Malik: A steady 26 from 24 balls did not set the world alight last time out but it is at least a platform from which the 39-year-old can build.
  • Mujeeb Ur Rahman: The Afghan teenager is third in the ICC T20i world bowling rankings, and started this tournament with a tidy 1-25 from his four overs.
  • Ravi Bopara: Started the tournament with a half-century to remind everybody why he is still revered as a big asset in T20 cricket.

PSZ Team Form

Peshawar Zalmi have, like Multan Sultans, lost their last four matches in T20 cricket including last season’s play-off defeat. They scored too slowly last time out, despite Ravi Bopara’s half-century lifting them to 140/6. In reply, Wahab Riaz and Saqib Mahmood each took two wickets but Lahore Qalandars only needed 18.3 overs, in spite of a sticky start, to claim a four-wicket win.

Multan Sultans Team News & Playing 11

MS Team News

Mohammad Umar made his T20 debut last time out in PSL 2021, while James Vince came in at number three. Vince and Chris Lynn could swap places this time, but the team may otherwise be unchanged despite their loss.

MS Key Players

  • James Vince: Batted Sydney Sixers to Big Bash League victory with two magnificent innings in the play-off and final. He will be keen to continue impressing the England selectors. 
  • Mohammad Rizwan: Arrived at this tournament in fine batting form, having starred for Pakistan against South Africa, and promptly hammered 71 from 53 balls in the opening match too.
  • Shahid Afridi: The veteran T20 icon claimed 2-24 with his leg-spin and brilliantly ran out Iftikhar Ahmed to prove he is still a dangerous player.

MS Team Form

Multan Sultans have now lost their last four consecutive T20 matches following defeat to Islamabad United at the start of this tournament. They hit 150/8, thanks to Mohammad Rizwan’s 71, but lost by three wickets with an over to spare after Lewis Gregory’’s late onslaught.

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans Top Team Batsmen

Mohammad Rizwan arrived at this tournament in fine form and started it by being Multan Sultans top team batsman in the first game too. He is now favourite to be Multan Sultans top team batsman in this game too, ahead of Chris Lynn and James Vince. Peshawar Zalmi's top team batsman in their opening game was Ravi Bopara, but he bats down the order so the shorter-priced options are the likes of openers Kamran Akmal and Imam-ul-Haq.

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans Top Team Bowlers

Sohail Tanvir is favourite to be Multan Sultans’ top team bowler, having twice starred against Zalmi last season. For Zalmi, Wahab Riaz is favourite but Saqib Mahmood was their top team bowler last time out and Mujeeb Ur Rahman looks another good bet.

Sohail Tanvir has starred in this fixture before, but Shahid Afridi and Carlos Brathwaite should not be discounted having been in the wickets last time out. All three could be good bets for Multan Sultans’ top team bowler. Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Saqib Mahmood are good outside bets for Peshawar Zalmi considering they outperformed Wahab Riaz last time out.

PSZ vs MS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Already in fine batting form, Mohammad Rizwan hit the ground running in the opening game and looks a very smart investment – even if he is slightly more expensive than Kamran Akmal.

  • Batsmen

    Also arriving in fine form is James Vince, and he will hope to build on his start from the last game. Chris Lynn is a top option too but, to save credits, Rilee Rossouw and Sherfane Rutherford are good middle-order big hitters for their respective teams.

  • All rounder

    Saving spaces for the all-rounders could be key, with Ravi Bopara and Shoaib Malik with the bat and Shahid Afridi and Carlos Brathwaite with the ball already showing whey they are so popular in T20 cricket. All four have huge experience and all four look good picks, which means no place for Amad Butt.

  • Bowlers

    Saqib Mahmood was in good bowling form last time out and he and Mujeeb Ur Rahman could represent better options than captain Wahab Riaz from the Zalmi bowling attack. Sohail Tanvir could not find the same form, but his record in this fixture is a reminder of his T20 bowling talents.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    With so many all-rounders to choose from, it could be tempting to opt for them as captain and vice-captain but Mohammad Rizwan’s form is worth gambling on with the bat. He could be the captain pick, leaving space for Saqib Mahmood as a vice-captain pick in light of his two wickets last time out.

PSZ vs MS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:James Vince, Rilee Rossouw, Sherfane Rutherford

  • All Rounder:Ravi Bopara, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Carlos Brathwaite

  • Wicket Keeper:Mohammad Rizwan (c)

  • Bowler:Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Saqib Mahmood (vc), Sohail Tanvir
