The Karachi Kings will face off against the Multan Sultans in Pakistan Super League's (PSL) 11th fixture to be played in Sharjah on Friday.
Both the Kings and the Sultans have put on quite a show throughout the Dubai leg of the tournament, and have managed to keep their fans and critics engaged in the three matches they have each played apiece.
The Multan Sultans, a recent addition to the PSL roster, have had a fine start to the tournament under Shoaib Malik’s leadership.
The newcomers have won two of the three games they played. Coached and mentored by Tom Moody and Wasim Akram, the team have continued to impress everyone and look like they might be the dark horse this season.
The team's stars have been Imran Tahir and Junaid Khan, with the latter picking up a hat-trick against the Lahore Qalandars.
The Karachi Kings, in this PSL season, look to be in much better shape and have made a thunderous start to their PSL campaign under the captaincy of Imad Wasim.
Although their combination may not seem appealing to everyone, the Kings have managed to come out trumps in each of their three games.
