Match 30 of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 will see Islamabad United take on the Multan Sultans at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on June 19 (Saturday).
Multan Sultans are yet to confirm a place in the top-four at the time of writing. Although they are unbeaten in the UAE leg so far, Multan have a tough task of beating Islamabad on Saturday. Although they will start the game as underdogs, their resourceful bowling attack will be key to their fortunes in their bid for a top-four finish in the final league game of PSL 2021.
Islamabad United are already in the PSL playoffs and will look to sustain their momentum ahead of the knockout clash. Although they missed the services of Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf, Islamabad were able to post the highest score in PSL history en route to beating Peshawar Zalmi.
With Usman Khawaja also striking form at the top of the order, Islamabad are the clear favourites heading into this game.
Match: Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United, Match 30
Date and Time: 19th June 2021, at 11:30 PM IST
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi
With this being the second PSL game of the day, the pitch could be on the slower side, with variations being key. Although both the pacers and spinners should get the ball to talk, the batsmen should be able to play their shots freely.
Dew could play a factor, with both teams likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss. Although 170-180 should be a good total at the venue, both teams are capable of breaching the par score with ease.
