The Pakistan Super League (PSL) fixture between Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday was called off due to rain.

The Kings won the toss and opted to bat first before rain foiled their plans. The match officials waited for almost two and a half hours before taking a decision.

The sharing of points ends the Kings' 100 per cent record in the tournament. They now have seven points from four matches.

The Sultans, meanwhile, have five points to show from a quartet of games.
