ISL vs MUL, Match 24: Top Five Picks

  1. Alex Hales (ISL): England international Alex Hales scored 34 and 12 in the two matches he has played for Islamabad United this season. The right-handed opener is a quality and proven performer in this format and should be picked for this fixture.
  2. Azam Khan (ISL): United's wicketkeeper batter Azam Khan is in a destructive mood in PSL 8. He is their leading run-getter with an average of 55.40 and 2 half-centuries. He scored a quickfire 35 off 25 in the last game and is the man in form.
  3. Colin Munro (ISL): New Zealand's swashbuckling batter Colin Munro hammered 63 off just 29 with five fours and four maximums in the last match against Quetta Gladiators. He has struck the second-most runs after Azam for United, as he is a good pick for this contest.
  4. Mohammad Rizwan (MUL): Multan Sultans skipper Mohammad Rizwan has scored over 25 runs in each of the seven innings in this edition. He is the leading-run scorer overall, and it's a no-brainer to pick him up for this tie.
  5. Kieron Pollard (MUL): Explosive West Indian Kieron Pollard struck 39 off 28 in the last game against the Lahore Qalandars. He averages 54.00 in this edition and could be a worthy pick for this fixture.
