Multan Sultans captain, Mohammad Rizwan revealed that he wants to play every match for his franchise at perform at his best level in order to make up for the lost time during the initial seasons of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Rizwan was part of Karachi Kings for the first few seasons of the PSL but his role in the side was minimal and did not feature as much for the franchise as he would have liked. Rizwan stated that he does not regret their decision and holds no grudges against anyone.

Rizwan said that Multan is ready to win their second title in the upcoming eighth edition of the tournament and the team is fully focused to achieve its goal.
The philosophy of Multan Sultans is simple: play as champions irrespective of the opposition or the outcome. Consequently, we are not afraid of the results.
