The Surprise Show ft. Multan Sultans

Nothing has gone wrong for the men in green and blue since the inception of Rizwan as their skipper in 2020, having won a trophy once and being a runner-up in the previous season, the Multan Sultans are becoming a real threat to handle this season as well. It’s a fact that their team coached by Andy Flower on paper looks to be a batting powerhouse but in the case of bowling it’s that “surprise show” working for them. They began the tournament with a loss and to add more salt to their opening loss wound, they lost their ace pacer Shanawaz Dahani for the whole PSL as he fractured his “pinky finger”.

Multan Sultans and their injury scare:

As the tournament started, the news of injuries spread all over the internet, and the most affected team that stood out was the Multan Sultans as they lost their platinum star Josh Little who got injured while playing a warm-up game in Ireland. However, an official update is still awaited for his availability in the tournament. The second injury scare came in as Wayne Parnell who was supposed to be the leader of Multan’s Pace attack but also got injured and ruled out of the tournament and Multan replaced him with West Indian star Carlos Brathwaite.

Multan was written off as many believed that this team would succumb to the pressure of maintaining their team balance.

The Rilee Rossouw’s Run-fest

When the team needed a booster, the lad from the land of Africa came as their savior. Rossouw loves batting at Multan’s home ground i.e. The Multan Cricket Stadium and many fans believe his team to hit is always Quetta, which hilariously was his previous home as well. 

The Left-handed batter has managed to score a century against his ex-team in their trophy-winning campaign and has also taken them to the cleaners in the present season at the same venue.

The “Real Suprise Show”.

Multan Sultans pace battery was as dead as presumed by many but to some sort of surprise, they unearthed a local 20-year-old lad, Ihsanullah, who within a span of just 3 games is a talking point in the global media headlines and the facts suggest that he’s currently leading the wounded Multan’s pace attack and his pace is a real fire to handle.

The pacer tore apart the Quetta’s batting line-up with astonishing match figures of 5-12 in his allotted quota of 4 overs.

The experts believe that he is now the breakout star of PSL season 8.

Multan’s Position, as it stands

PSL 6 champions and PSL 7 runners-up Multan Sultans are again set to aim for the glittering “supernova” launched by the Pakistan Cricket Board this year.

The team started brilliantly after their narrow loss to Lahore Qalandars in the opening encounter of the tournament.

Nevertheless, Multan is going to get spicier to handle as the tournament moves forward and it’s a team to beat this season as well.
