On Wednesday, February 16, the Multan Sultans will play the Karachi Kings in Match 23 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022. This match will take place in Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium.
The Sultans are currently in the first place. So far, they've played seven games and won six of them, totaling 12 points. The team captained by Mohammad Rizwan won their first six games before losing to the Lahore Qalandars in their final match.
The Sultans' bowlers struggled a bit as they bowled first, only able to pick up four wickets as the Qalandars produced a score. The Sultans were bowled out for 130 runs and lost the game by 52 runs after failing to adapt to the conditions. They will hope to get back to winning ways in this fixture.
The Kings, on the other hand, have had a very different experience thus far. They've played seven games and have lost each one. They are the only team in the competition that has not yet won a match. They came close to winning their first game but were defeated by Islamabad United in the previous match.
The Kings picked up seven wickets after electing to bowl first, but United scored 191 runs. The batters then stepped up, with Imad Wasim and Qasim Akram forming a strong partnership that enabled them to move near to the mark.
However, they were unable to maintain their cool, in the end, losing the game by one run. They'll keep looking for their first win of the season against the Sultans.
The pitch at Gaddafi Stadium is one of the best in the world. Batsmen prefer batting on this surface because the ball is easy to control. We've already seen several high-scoring games at this venue, and another one is expected on Wednesday.
