The high on confidence Multan Sultans acquired the top spot in PSL 2018 points table after beating Peshawar Zalmi yesterday in their second encounter. Although the skipper is confused to enter the ground with 4 or 5 bowlers, Multan Sultans are unlikely to make changes in their yesterday’s winning squad.
Quetta Gladiators, on the other hand, might make a few changes when they face Multan Sultans for the second time. Jofra Archer has been ruled out of PSL due to a side strain. Kevin Pietersen is still doubtful while Mahmudullah has flown back for his national duty.

Almost everyone is contributing in Multan Sultans. From openers- Kumar Sangakkara and Ahmed Shehzad and middle order batsmen Shoaib Maqsood, Shoaib Malik and Kieron Pollard, everyone is playing his part. The bowling department has been wonderfully managed by Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Irfan, and Kieron Pollard.
Quetta Gladiators will rely upon Shane Watson, skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and Rilee Rossouw.
In their first encounter, Multan Sultans thrashed Gladiators by 9 wickets. Gladiators were bundled out for 102 in 15.4 over. Multan Sultans were ahead of Quetta Gladiators in all departments be it – batting bowling or fielding. Something similar can happen today also when both the teams reload. With injuries and unavailability of players, Quetta Gladiators is already on the back foot. On contrary, the table topper – Sultans will leave no chance to defeat Gladiators once again.
