Today Match Prediction
Islamabad United Preview:
The performance of United was satisfactory throughout the PSL seasons. They performed well in all seasons of the Pakistan Super League. Islamabad United is considered as the favorite team for today’s clash.
Some key and game-changer players for Islamabad United are Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Colin Munro, and Luke Ronchi. These will be the match-winning players for Islamabad United. But their start of the PSL 2020 is not good as they lost opening match despite getting control of the match in both innings.

Multan Sultans Preview:
The story of Sultans is completely different as compared to Islamabad. Multan did their debut in Pakistan Super League in the last season. Their performance was nearly identical to LQ. They could win only three matches out of ten.
Multan Sultans had made some key changes in the team. They also had got the services of the best short-format cricket players from all around the globe. Shah Masood will be leading the team in PSL 2020. They started well as Sultans beat Qalandars in their 1st match easily.
Previous Match Details
Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans 3rd T20 was won by Sultans. Qalandars only made 138 despite an excellent start. Chriss Lynn was the top scorer with 39. Imran Tahir, Moin, and Ilyas all took 2 wickets each. Multan chased the target easily. Masood was the top scorer with 38. Imran Tahir was player of the match.
Who Will Win Today’s Match:
According to our prediction, Multan Sultans seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of world-class all-rounders like Moeen Ali and Ravi Bopara. Both are known as legendary all-rounders. Both of them have the ability to create a huge total.
While the presence of Moeen Ali and Imran Tahir in the bowling lineup of Multan will help them to defend that total. So Sultans will have to perform really well to win this match from Islamabad while United will try their best to open their account with a win.
Today Match & Toss Predictions
Toss will play a vital role in today’s contest. According to trendeetalk.com, the team who will win the toss today will choose to bat first because of its a batting pitch in Ghadaffi Stadium Lahore. So batting first will increase the winning chances for the batting team.
