Today Match Prediction
Multan Sultans Preview:
The story of Sultans is completely different from other teams. 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 in their debut season.
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.
PSL 2020 Performance
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.

Peshawar Zalmi is a good team and they won the trophy once back in 2017 and their performances in previous Pak Super League were exceptional as well. They also reached the final round but they couldn’t win the trophy.
PZ was eliminated by Quetta in the finals. Like other teams, PZ also did some minor changes to their lineup. But Darren Sammy – like the previous season, will lead Zalmi. Key Players for Peshawar are Imam-ul-Haq, Haider Ali, Adil Amin, and Kamran Akmal.

Who Will Win Today’s Match:
According to our prediction, Peshawar Zalmi seems to be a more balanced side due to the presence of Kamran Akmal, Carlos Braithwaite and the skipper Darren Sammy. Kamran Akmal played an exceptional inning. He made a fabulous century. Both are known as legendary openers of the best innings. Both of them have the ability to create a huge total.
