MUL vs PES - Fantasy Cricket Tips

If Multan Sultans Fields First

Usama Mir and Mohammad Ali are the leading wicket-takers so far in PSL 9. The former has picked up 21 wickets while Ali has 17 scalps to his name. The Multan team will again be relying on the duo to get the wickets and restrict the Zalmi to a low total. Skipper Mohammad Rizwan and 28-year old Usman Khan have been consistent for the Sultans and the batting will again depend on them in a run-chase.

If Peshawar Zalmi Fields First

Luke Wood has been the top two-wicket taker for the Zalmi in the ongoing campaign. Wood has picked up 11 wickets.  Skipper Babar is leading the batting charts of PSL 9 and will once again be a vital cog while chasing.

MUL vs PES - Winner Predictions

Both teams finished at the top of the points table after the completion of the league stage. There is hardly anything to choose between these evenly-matched sides but the Sultans may just edge past the Zalmi.

Mohammad Rizwan (MUL)

Wicketkeeper batter and Skipper Mohammad Rizwan has smashed the most runs for his Multan side in this campaign. The right-handed opening batter has hit 366 runs at an average of 37 with four half-centuries. Rizwan is a clear no-brainer pick for this category.

Babar Azam (PES)

As mentioned above, Babar Azam is the leading run-scorer of the ongoing PSL season. The classy right-handed opening player has struck 498 runs at a solid average of 62.25 which includes one hundred and five fifties. Like Rizwan, Babar is also a definite and worthy pick for this fixture.

Saim Ayub (PES)

Youngster Saim Ayub has scored the second-most runs after Babar for the Zalmi. The left-handed opening player has mustered 271 runs and is averaging 30.11 with one half-century to his name. The 21-year old is a promising talent and should be picked for this category.

MUL vs PES - Differential Picks

Johnson Charles (MUL)

Johnson Charles has played two games this season and has contributed in both of them. The right-handed West Indian has scores of 42 and 53 thus far. The 35-year old middle-order batter looks in good touch and could be the differntial pick for this contest.

Rovman Powell (PES)

West Indies T20 captain Rovman Powell has amassed the third-most runs after Babar and Ayub for the Zalmi. The destructive right-hander has scored 214 runs at an average of 31 which inclues one half-century. Powell is a perfect and worthy pick for this category.
