Team Analysis

Multan Sultans 

Multan Sultans will be led by Mohammad Rizwan. He has been leading the franchise for the last couple of seasons. Along with him, the team’s batting strength lies in Dawid Mala Reeza Hendricks, Johnson Charles, and Mohammad Shahzad. 

The bowling will be taken care of by Chris Jordan, Usama Mir, and David Willey. There are several all-rounders that add a lot of strength to the team. The team won the PSL title in 2021. From then on Mohmmad Rizwan has become an integral member of the Pakistan side. 

Karachi Kings 

Karachi Kings will be led by Shan Masood who is the Test skipper of the side. The franchise parted ways with Babar Azam last season and Mohammad Amir at the start of this season. While Azam was traded to Peshawar Zalmi last season, Amir joined the Quetta Gladiators ahead of PSL 2024. 

The Karachi side have plenty of experience with players like Kieron Pollard and Shoaib Malik in the side. Both have played across T20 leagues around the world and garnered a lot of experience in playing and leading various teams. Pollard is the most capped T20 player in the world. Thus there is no shortage of leadership experience in the side. 

Key Factors

Pitch Conditions 

PSL 2024 matches will be played across four venues in Pakistan namely, Lahore, Multan, Karachi, and Rawalpindi. Each of the four venues has betting-friendly wickets which is why the PSL league has seen the most high-scoring encounters. There has been no international T20 played at this venue. However, historically, teams batting first have had the most success here.

Form and fitness

For the hosts, skipper Mohammad Rizwan will be the most important batter for the Multan Sultans. Being the skipper, he is most likely to open the batting and is expected to score a lot of runs. With the ball, the likes of Chris Jordan and Usama Mir will be the key bowlers.

The Karachi Kings will bank of the likes of Shoaib Malik and Kieron Pollard to win them games. Both vastly experienced T20 players will need to help their skipper Shan Maoosn make key decisions. No injury concerns are there in both camps heading into this game.

Tactical Acumen

Both are very new captains in terms of their T20 league experience. Both have led Pakistan in the past but not with great success which is why their potential as captains is not yet fully known. Both sides have plenty of seasoned T20 cricketers and handling them will be a major concern for both captains.
