MUL vs KAR Dream11 Team Prediction: 16th Match, PSL 2021
Hello and welcome to our MUL vs KAR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings will be played in the 16th match of the Pakistan Super League 2021 at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Sultans are having a tough time as they have lost four out of the five matches and are currently at the 5th position on the points table. In the last game, they had to face disappointment as they lost by 22 runs.
Skipper Rizwan is the team’s opener and has scored more than 40 runs in every match so far in this season. But his partners haven’t been up to the mark. As Chris Lynn is not available, Johnson Charles might open alongside Rizwan.
Jame Vince has done a brilliant job at No.3, but he won’t be playing the rest of the season, so Hetmyer is most probably going to take his place. Maqsood has put up some excellent performances in the middle-order, and Rossouw has also played well in a couple of innings. The main disadvantage is that they don’t have a proper finisher in the team.
The bowling department has performed decently so far, but they haven’t put up match-winning performances. Shahnawaz Dhani has been the consistent wicket-taker for the team. Sohail Khan appeared to be in good form in the last couple of matches, and Tahir bowled well in the one game he played this season.
Multan Sultans need to start winning most of the matches from here on, or else they would be very soon out of the tournament. The batsmen are performing well, but the bowlers need to step up their game.
Karachi Kings have been in brilliant form as they have won three out of the five matches and are currently at the top of the points table with six points. In the last game, they performed brilliantly and won the game by six wickets.
The openers Sharjeel Khan and Babar Azam have performed well so far in this season. If one has failed, then the other has held the innings from one end. But with Martin Guptill in the team, there might be some change in the opening pair.
In the middle-order, Najibullah Zadran and Chadwick Walton might get to play more matches as Joe Clarke, Nabi, and Daniel Christian will not be playing the rest of the season. Imad Wasim might also bat up the order, and Thisara Perera can also get a chance in the team.
The bowling department has been struggling so far this season. There has not been any player who has picked up wickets consistently. Mohammad Ilyas and Abbas Afridi picked up two wickets each in the last match.
Karachi Kings would want to keep the momentum going and stay on the top of the points table.
