Multan Sultans vs Karachi Kings Match Preview – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 28/02/2020

Multan welcome Karachi looking to maintain their early lead at the top of the PSL table.

Sultans got off to a fine start when beating Lahore but couldn’t overcome Islamabad in the second fixture. However, they head into this one on the back of a thrilling win over Peshawar Zalmi and will be looking to land another win in front of their home support.

Karachi have won one and lost one so far. They started with victory over Peshawar but then failed to follow that up against Quetta Gladiators. They will be keen to quickly return to winning ways and start to build momentum.

Multan Sultans vs Karachi Kings – Team News

Multan have the option to change things up a little if they think it’s needed. They will have to decide if to go with the experience of Ravi Bopara and Wayne Madsen or hand more chances to those that started the first three fixtures.

Sultans will likely continue with Fakhar Zaman and James Vince at the top of the order and will also be hoping for some big showings from Shan Masood, Moeen Ali and Rilee Rossouw. West Indian Fabien Allen isn’t available until March 7.

All eyes will again be on Kings opener Babar Azam after his impressive start to the tournament. Mohammad Amir missed the previous game with a hand injury but could now return.

Multan Sultans vs Karachi Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction

Multan took the chance to register a win last time out when their home ground hosted the PSL for the first time. Opponents Peshawar collapsed to 123 all out as Sultans ran riot with the ball. That said, their batting line-up continues to look a little fragile t times and big partnerships seem hard to come by.

Their bowling attack is in form, though, and this one is likely to come down to how they are handled by Karachi duo Babar Azam and Alex Hales.

Babar to lead Karachi attack once more

Destructive Babar Azam has looked in the mood for runs already this PSL campaign and looks a decent bet to be his side’s top batsman.

He smashed a fine 78 in Karachi’s opening game and hit 26 last time up. He can continue his form in Multan as he tries to fire his side back to winning ways.

He can be backed at 3.25 (9/4) by bet365. His main danger will likely come from Alex Hales, who is priced at 4.33 (10/3).

Ilyas the value to be Multan’s top wicket-taker

Muhammad Ilyas has been in fine form this season and has five wickets to his name from the first three games. He took another two against Peshawar and has plenty more improvement still to come.

His price at 5.00 (4/1) with bet365 is far too big given how he has started this PSL season and how he bowled in the last game at this same venue.

Best Bet: Muhammad Ilyas to be Multan’s top bowler at 5.00 with bet365
