The Pakistan Super League 2022 kicks off on Thursday at Karachi’s National Stadium with a match between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans. The Karachi Kings’ new captain will be Babar Azam.
Multan Sultans Vs Karachi Kings Pitch Report:
The pitch at Karachi’s National Stadium is known as a batting paradise. The ball lands nicely on the bat. There won’t be much assistance for the bowlers. To take wickets, fast bowlers must use more cutters and slower balls.
Given the previous record at this venue, the first match is likely to be a high-scoring affair. Teams that bat first have a higher win percentage than teams that bowl first. As a result, whoever wins the toss should expect both teams to bat first.
PSL 2022- Multan Sultans Vs Karachi Kings
Karachi Kings will face Multan Sultans in the first match of the PSL 2022 on Thursday, January 27th at the National Stadium in Karachi. Multan Sultans had a difficult first half of the PSL 2021 season.
However, they made a remarkable comeback in the second half of the tournament. Multan Sultans not only made the playoffs, but also won the PSL championship. Mohammad Rizwan and Team. are preparing to defend their title ahead of the start of a new season.
Shan Masood, Sohaib Maqbool, and M Rizwan remain in command in the battle for supremacy. Last year, the team’s offensive output was impressive as a result of their contributions. Khushdil Shah and Rilee Rossouw are examples of people in the middle of the pecking order.
Tim David and David Willey of the Multan Sultans have been called up to help the team’s depth. It’s not impossible that one of them will play a critical role in the final round. Willey can be offensive as well, and he should be taken seriously. He thrives in two situations: power struggles and death overthrows.
Multan Sultans have one of the league’s best fast bowling teams, and this is not an exaggeration. They include this year’s leading wicket-taker, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Zimbabwe’s Blessing Muzarabani. Imran Tahir, their best hope, is a spinner.
Karachi Kings, on the other hand, advanced to the playoffs, where they faced Peshawar Zalmi in the Eliminator 1 match. Babar Azam has relieved Imad Wasim of his duties as team captain. Sharjeel Khan would bat first for him. It will once again be up to both of them to get things moving quickly at the top of the list.
Among the franchise’s many all-rounders are M Nabi, Tom Abell, and Lewis. The trio should be able to keep the squad in good shape with the bat and the ball. Joe Clarke has had a fantastic year. Throughout the competition, he’ll be a player to keep an eye on.
Their bowling is a little lacking.
If the Kings are to finish in the top four, Mohammad Amir must have a stellar season. M Imran and Lewis Gregory are two of the players who will assist him. Jordan has also been hired by the Karachi Kings, and he is expected to help them overcome their current difficulties. The Englishman, on the other hand, would not compete until much later in the competition.
