Zalmi Look to Break Sultans Perfect Streak

On Saturday, February 5, Peshawar Zalmi will face Multan Sultans in the 13th match of the PSL 7 2022. The match will begin at 7:30 p.m. PKT at Karachi’s National Stadium.

Match Preview

Peshawar Zalmi will be determined to win their second game in a row and become the first club this season to overcome Multan Sultans, the defending champions. Zalmi will move up to a third place with a win, while Multan will be able to extend their winning streak and their lead at the top of the PSL points table.

Peshawar produced a fantastic performance against Karachi Kings in their previous match in the league. They won their second game of the competition, leapfrogging Quetta Gladiators to take fourth place in the standings. They’ll be hoping for a similar performance against the Multan Sultans in their next match to lay a solid platform for the rest of the campaign.

With the impending arrival of top players Saqib Mahmood and Liam Livingstone, Zalmi can once again become a force to be reckoned with in PSL 7.

Multan appears to be miles ahead of the rest of the teams in the competition thus far. Multan has been near faultless in all aspects of the game under the guidance of Mohammad Rizwan, and they are the only team in the tournament to have a spotless record thus far. The team appears to be well-balanced, and they appear to be on their way to being the first club in the tournament to qualify for the PSL 7 playoffs. Shahnawaz Dahani and Imran Khan Snr. will be reintegrated into Multan’s think-already-firing tank’s line-up. Multan is anticipated to make one change to their line-up, with Shahnawaz Dahani replacing Anwar Ali. Peshawar is expected to pick an unchanged XI from their last night’s match against Karachi Kings.

Head to Head

In total, the two teams have met nine times in the competition. Sultans have the upper hand with six wins to Zalmi’s three. They last met in the final of the PSL 6 in Abu Dhabi on June 24, 2021. Multan won by 47 runs and became the first team from Pakistan to win the PSL.

X-Factor

Haider Ali’s performance has been below par so far, and Zalmi is concerned about his form. Zalmi has struggled to score massively in batting-friendly conditions due to Haider’s lack of form, and they will be hoping that Haider can swiftly return to form and assist the rest of the batting unit.

Multan has performed admirably in all three areas, but they do miss Shahnawaz Dahani, who was instrumental in their title-winning campaign the previous season. If Dahani returns to form, opposition hitters will have a hard time scoring big against this Multan bowling attack. Dahan, for one, will be determined to regain his form and reclaim a spot in Pakistan’s national T20 team.
