The first game of the 2024 Pakistan Super League play-offs gets underway on Thursday evening with Peshawar Zalmi taking on Multan Sultans at the National Stadium Karachi.

The game gets underway in Karachi at 21:00 local time.

Multan Sultans qualified for the knockout stage after their win in Match 19 and then suffered two narrow defeats against Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi. However, they were back to their best with a comprehensive win to end the group stage and to take top of the table.

Peshawar Zalmi come into this Qualifier after wins over Multan Sultans, Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings from their last three matches. They have built up a good amount of momentum and they will be confident of advancing straight to the final after this game.

Multan Sultans Team News & Playing 11

MUL Team News

In a clear sign that they were looking to regain some form ahead of the knockout stage, Multan Sultans selected the same team for Tuesday’s final group stage game against Quetta Gladiators. The side not only produced a brilliant performance but emerged with no injuries.

MUL Key Players

  • Mohammad Rizwan – Only Babar Azam has hit more runs so far in this year’s tournament with the keeper-batter hitting 366 runs in total in the group stage.
  • Usman Khan – After three previous scores of 96, 106 not out and 100 not out, the 28 year old made only 21 against Quetta Gladiators but he is a very dangerous batter.
  • David Willey – The former England bowling all-rounder got the big wickets of Jason Roy and Rilee Rossouw inside five overs in the last game before returning to dismiss Abrar Ahmed in the 15th over.
  • Usama Mir – It has been an exceptional performance from the spinner in the competition and he comes into this game after taking 3/22 against the Gladiators.

MUL Team Form

Multan Sultans had lost two in a row before their 79 run victory over Quetta Gladiators in Match 30.

PES Team News

There was one change to the Peshawar Zalmi line up ahead of their final group stage game with Khurram Shahzad removed and Aimal Khan coming into the side. However, with plenty at stake in this match, we expect to see Shahzad back into the XI for this game.

PES Key Players

  • Babar Azam – The right-handed opener hit yet another half-century in the last game, scoring 51 runs from 46 balls with six boundaries in total.
  • Rovman Powell – The West Indian middle-order batter hits the ball very hard and is capable of quick runs in this game just as we saw against Karachi Kings when he made 30 runs from 18 balls.
  • Luke Wood – The England international is Peshawar Zalmi’s top wicket taker in the tournament and got the big wicket of Kieron Pollard in the last match.
  • Naveen-ul-Haq – The Afghan pace bowler produced a brilliant exhibition of quick bowling in Match 29. He bowled a maiden as well as dismissing James Vince and Shoaib Malik.

Who will win Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi T20 Match?

These are the two top sides from the group stage and we certainly are not expecting one side to dominate the other. However, overall, Multan Sultans appear to have the side with the greater depth with bat and ball.

🏆 Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi Prediction

This looks set to be a brilliant contest between two top level sides in this Qualifier and we could well see the two teams meet again in the final. However, for this game, in spite of Peshawar Zalmi’s excellent recent form, Multan Sultans were unstoppable in their last match and we are backing them to come out on top in this game on Thursday evening.
