There are only two games left in the Pakistan Super League 2022, and the tournament is in a perfect state of balance. All remaining league matches have already been eliminated, leaving only Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators to face each other. Regardless of whether a team has qualified or not, no team wants to lose in the final stages of the competition.
Multan Sultans will take on Islamabad United in the tournament’s next match, which will have little impact on the next round. Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, will host the match between the two teams on February 20th, 2022.
MS vs IU Team Previews
Multan Sultans have only lost once in the tournament so far, making them the tournament’s best team. In terms of points, no team has even come close to matching their performance. They clinched the top spot a couple of matches ago and will try to maintain their lead before moving on to the knockout stages.
At the moment, Multan Sultans are on top of the standings after eight victories out of nine games. A net run rate of 1.226 shows just how dominant they have been, with a total of 16 points.
A couple of weeks ago, they were defeated by the Qalandars when they couldn’t come back from a massive deficit. The Sultans have been ruthless and just beat Quetta Gladiators in a record-breaking victory.
They don’t have to worry about a lot of things on paper. Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood have been outstanding as the Sultans’ opening pair, and they are largely responsible for their team’s success. The Sultans, on the other hand, don’t stop at the top of the food chain. Following them will be Tim David, Rilee Rossouw, and Khushdil Shah, which means the Sultans’ bowlers will have little respite. The Sultans have a wealth of experience and talent in the bowling department.
Multan Sultans have performed admirably thus far in the series and will be a difficult opponent to overcome. A win would give them confidence going into their first qualifier against the Qalandars, even though they don’t stand to gain much from this one. Islamabad United will have their work cut out for them if the Sultans continue to play as well as they have in the tournament thus far.

Islamabad United had a great start to the tournament, but they began to falter as they approached the top of the standings. Their net run rate is higher than that of the Quetta Gladiators, and that’s largely what got them through to the next round.
Islamabad United are currently in fourth place in the standings, with eight points. Their net run rate is 0.101, which is still a very respectable number, but they will be dissatisfied with their performance at this point of league play. Only one win in their last four matches has certainly scuppered their hopes of finishing in the top two at the halfway point.
Lahore Qalandars thrashed Islamabad United 4-0 in the Pakistan Super League on Saturday, and the result was a crushing one for the home team. To begin with, their batsmen were out for just 131, but they couldn’t even muster an effort as their bowlers gave up an impressive total of 197.
However, Islamabad United’s team is a talented one, but lacks experience. At the top, Rahmanullah Gurbaz has blown hot and cold, and no one in the middle order has been particularly reliable either. There have been many examples of their individual brilliance, but those have been far too few. Islamabad United must play as a cohesive unit if they are to have a chance of winning the tournament. In this upcoming match, if they can do that, it will be a huge boost to their chances of winning the championship.
Islamabad United Playing 11
Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mubasir Khan, Danish Aziz, Liam Dawson, Azam Khan (wk), Asif Ali (c), Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Waqas Maqsood, Zahir Khan, Marchant de Lange.
