Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans – Latest Odds
Islamabad United and the Multan Sultans are priced at 2.00 and 1.80, respectively, in the latest cricket match odds for this one. Their usual match handicap and player performance markets are available as well. And don’t forget to check out the interesting batsman matches (most runs) in particular.
Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans – Team News
Islamabad put up a big but insufficient score against Zalmi on the back of half-centuries from Shadab Khan and Colin Munro. Dawid Malan again sat out the XI as Colin Ingram’s stay continues, if Phil Salt doesn’t get a game. All these names should be in the team again, while it’s also likely Dale Steyn will continue to share the new ball with Rumman Raees.
The Sultans saw the Shahid Afridi of old before rain ahead the final say in their match with the Kings. They’re going to need a lot more from their top- and middle-order, who were poor versus Karachi. Perhaps James Vince will come into the XI for Ravi Bopara again. The bowling resources should be stacked with leg-spinner Imran Tahir to complement seamers Mohammad Irfan and Sohail Tanvir again.

Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans – Betting Tips and Prediction
This could be a cracker of a clash – one worth the best cricket betting tips and Pakistan Super League predictions that have preceded it. It could come down to the batting markets for Islamabad versus the bowling markets for the Sultans.
Ingram to go big
Ingram has been consistent if not spectacular for Islamabad in the 2020 PSL, so far. Soon enough, particularly if the franchise gets him right up the order, he should be due a big knock. He has plenty of support from the team’s other overseas stars, but is capable of being the top batsman for United on his own and is priced at 4.50 by bet365 to do so.
Tanvir to keep it tight
Sohail Tanvir has been playing domestic T20 cricket around the world for a long time and comes with plenty of experience – and an array of variations to flummox the batsman. His prowess is sometimes overshadowed by that of Tahir and Irfan. But he is offered at 4.50 to be the top bowler for Multan.
Best Bet: Colin Ingram to be top batsman for Islamabad United at 4.50 with bet365
