MUL vs PES Today Match Prediction – Who Will Win Today's PSL Match? PSL 2024, Qualifier


The PSL 2024 Qualifier will be played on March 14 between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi in Karachi. The match starts at 9.30 am IST. Peshawar won both the league matches against Multan earlier this season.

30 league matches have already been completed in PSL 2024. Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi finished as the top two teams. Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators finished as the third and fourth teams in the table. Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars were eliminated and the defending champions Qalandars won only one game this season under Shaheen Afridi.

The season was played in four venues. Lahore hosted nine matches, Multan hosted five, Rawalpindi hosted nine matches and Karachi will host 11 matches including playoffs.

Team analysis

Peshawar Zalmi

Babar leads the Peshawar Zalmi team. He joined the team last year and led them to the playoffs. He now strives to lead the team to the final. He had a brilliant season with the bat with 498 runs in nine games. He will look to score more than 500 and make this season a memorable one in a bid to retain the captaincy as the Pakistan national cricket team has not won too many matches in recent times.

Sultans of Multan

Multan, led by Mohammad Rizwan, relies a lot on him to give a good outing. Usama Mir and David Willey have been the main wicket-keepers for the Sultans in this edition of the tournament. Mohammad Ali also took 17 wickets and came out as a surprise package. It is this same group of players that Multan will bet with in the Qualifier.

Key factors

Field conditions

The Karachi pitch has been batting friendly so far and has enough for the bowlers. Multa won their previous game after posting over 180 and Peshawar also defended 147 on this track. The field remains lively throughout the match and a high-scoring match should be on the cards.

Form and fitness

There are no injury concerns on either field. The players are fit and eager to participate in this crucial game. Otherwise, all eyes will be on Babar and Rizwan, who are the first two to get runs. Babar is two away from scoring 500 runs in the tournament, while Rizwan himself is in great form.

Tactical insight

Both players are great teammates and open together for Pakistan in international T20I cricket. Having played with each other a lot, both players know each other very well. They should also be able to understand each other tactically in terms of the opposing captain.
