Strengths

Multan Sultans’ spin trio of Imran Tahir, Shahid Afridi, and Usman Qadir has the potential to wreak havoc on the opposition batting lineup.

Judging by the spin-friendly tracks within the Pakistan and South Africa collection, the trio would be the key for Multan Sultans. Tahir and Afridi have been within the sport for a very long time and are thought of two of the best leg-spinners in limited-overs cricket, whereas Usman Qadir has made a powerful begin to his worldwide profession.

The opposite key space for Multan Sultans is their abroad batting contingent. Chris Lynn, James Vince, and Rilee Rossouw kind a fearsome top-order and might take away the sport from the opposition throughout the first ten overs.

T20 requires gamers that may fulfill a number of roles, and Multan definitely lacks that. Afridi, pretty much as good as he’s, has not carried out with the bat just lately and has shifted his focus in direction of his bowling. This leaves an enormous hole for Multan to cowl within the center and decrease order.

Famous person

Multan’s platinum decide, Chris Lynn, will present the impetus on the prime of the order, and on his day, he can single-handedly win the match for his workforce. Lynn is a damaging opener, and if he manages to remain match, he can present the fireworks for Multan Sultans.

Multan was distinctive final season, however they lacked the firepower on the prime of the order. Zeeshan Ashraf and Shan Masood have been good for them however didn’t present explosive begins. Therefore Lynn’s contributions on the prime of the order can be essential for Multan Sultans.

Hidden Gem

Leg-spinner, Usman Qadir, has been in a terrific wicket-taking kind on Pakistan pitches. He has been with the nationwide workforce for the previous yr or so, and the nationwide workforce administration has invested numerous effort and time within the younger leggie.
