KARACHI: Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi will look to bounce back in Pakistan Super League (PSL), when the two face each other in match number 5, after facing defeats in their respective opening games.
Led by Wahab Riaz, the Zalmi side lost to Lahore Qalandars by four wickets in their opening match. They struggled with the bat as three of their top four went back to the pavilion with single-figure scores. Although Ravi Bopara scored 50 off 44 balls, the rest of Zalmi’s batting line up could not put up much of a fight.
The Sultans, on the other hand, lost to the Islamabad United by three wickets on Sunday night. Mohammad Rizwan continued his good run but his runs were not enough for his side to edge past Islamabad as late firepower by Lewis Gregory took United ahead of Sultans. It was the Sultans’ fourth loss in a row in the PSL.
