After plenty of drama last night in Rawalpindi, it’s a double-header Friday, with today’s first match scheduled between Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings at Multan Cricket Stadium whereas Rawalpindi will host the night match between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi.
Things are getting pretty interesting in terms of the points table as Quetta Gladiators have climbed to the top with their nervy win against Islamabad United on Thursday.
Here’s all you need to know about today’s match:
There is a slight change in timings on Friday due to the prayers which is why both the matches are scheduled an hour later than the usual timings.

Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings have faced each other 4 times in PSL. Sultans are yet to defeat Kings, which makes the contest even more thrilling as there will be plenty on the line for the home team.
Having won the previous match, Multan Sultans are unlikely to change their winning combination. The same cannot be said about Karachi Kings which lost its previous match.

Players to Lookout For
Mohammad Irfan played a crucial role in pinning down the opposition in their last match right from the start. His ability to provide good starts with the ball will be the key for Sultans.
Alex Hales is a pure match-winner and he can win games for any side he plays even from impossible situations. His presence in the team is a huge plus for the Kings.
