The 25th match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 7 will pit table-toppers Quetta Gladiators against table-toppers Multan Sultans. On Friday, February 18, at 2:30 p.m. PKT, the two teams will face off at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. This is how the modified points table looks:

Match Preview

Multan Sultans coach Muhammad Rizwan is under less pressure now that his team has won seven out of eight games and has already qualified for the playoffs. On the other hand, the Quetta Gladiators, led by Sarfaraz Ahmed, will enter the clash with a lot of burden on their shoulders, as they currently sit in fifth place on the points table. Even though Peshawar Zalmi defeated Islamabad United by 10 runs, Purple Force was forced to settle for fifth place. If Gladiators win today’s match, they will stay in the same position and await their last encounter on February 20 against Karachi Kings.

Head to Head

Would Smeed, who scored 99 runs off 60 balls against Peshawar Zalmi, will be expected to repeat the feat in another crucial encounter. Jason Roy, on the other hand, will have to step up against Multan Sultans at a key time of the tournament after failing against Zalmi.
