- Karachi Kings will have home advantage for the first leg of the 2022 PSL and they’ll be looking to try and replicate their season back in 2020 when they won the competition, starting here against the reigning champions.
- The Kings are captained by Pakistan international skipper Babar Azam, the highest run scorer in last year’s PSL, whilst Imad Wasim and Lewis Gregory provide balance as all-rounders with left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir a huge wicket-taking threat.
- Multan Sultans secure their first ever PSL title last year and look well placed on paper to put up a strong defence of their title under the command of head coach Andy Flower and skipper Mohammad Rizwan, 2021’s highest T20 run scorer across the world.
- The firepower of the Sultans is particularly impressive with Tim David, Sohaib Maqsood and Rilee Rossouw all capable of hitting the ball a long way, but they also boast last season’s top PSL wicket taker among their ranks in Shahnawaz Dahani.
Playing on their own ground is a huge benefit for Karachi Kings, who will no doubt lean heavily on Babar to get them off to a good start with the bat whether they be setting or chasing a target. However, their middle-order perhaps do not pose the danger Multan Sultans’ do and should Babar be dismissed early on, a collapse is not out of the question. However, key to the outcome of this fixture is likely to be the toss with the team bowling first gaining an advantage. Playing in the evening with temperatures dropping as play goes on may well lead to dew becoming a factor, making batting easier as the ball becomes harder to control for the bowlers and skids on to the bat more freely. Last year saw the vast majority of PSL matches played in Pakistan won by the chasing team and it would be no surprise if we see a repeat scenario this year. Therefore, whilst Multan Sultans are to be narrowly favoured in this one, be sure not to make any moves until the outcome of the toss is revealed before play.
