PSL 5 Match 22th: Islamabad United seems pretty much on a course from the fifth version of Pakistan Super League. They’ve won three matches from the seven and are presently on the next place in the league table. They’ve all their bases covered together with each of their players doing in their elite form.
The existence of players such as Luke Ronchi, Colin Munro and Shoaib Malik makes them the preferred to win against some other group. In the upcoming match, they will lock horns with a solid side of Multan Sultans, who are leading the graphs with nine points.
Before this year if these two teams came face to face at the point, United won that game with utter dominance. They conquered Sultans with a margin of eight wickets. In that match, Luke Ronchi and Colin Munro scored brilliant fifties that assisted their aspect in registering a fantastic win.
Sultans was able to evaluate 164 runs for a loss of eight wickets. However, it was readily chased by United at 16.4 overs.
Now, it is going to be a fascinating issue to see of Sultans, who suffered their only defeat in this year against Sultans, will avenge the loss of the previous failure. Right now, Multan Sultans have enrolled three successive wins with one becoming left from the past four matches. They seem well-rested also it will be an uphill task for Islamabad United to outclass Shadab Khan and Co…
The odds are extremely slim that Multan Sultans will seem to gratify their winning team mix. For these, Zeeshan Ashraf and James Vince will start the innings followed closely by Rilee Rossouw, Shan Masood and Moeen Ali at the middle sequence. Even Khushdil Shah and Sohail Tanvir may go for large strikes when needed from the match. On the flip side, they have a short bowling unit which includes Mohammad Ilyas, Mohammad Irfan and Imran Tahir, that will confine the competition out of posting a big total on the scoreboard.
Probable XI: Zeeshan Ashraf (wk), Mohammad Irfan, James Vince, Imran Tahir, Shan Masood (c), Sohail Tanvir, Moeen Ali, Khushdil Shah, Bilawal Bhatti, Mohammad Ilyas, Rilee Rossouw.
In the middle, they’ve Shadab Khan, Colin Ingram, that have listed at least fifty-plus score in 50 and rating in PSL 2020. In bowling, they’ve undergone Dale Steyn, Rumman Raees, Zafar Gohar and Akif Javed. Who’ll be having the duty to limit the competition on a diminished score?
Probable XI: Luke Ronchi (wk), Dale Steyn, Colin Munro, Rizwan Hussain, Faheem Ashraf, Colin Ingram, Asif Ali, Zafar Gohar, Shadab Khan (c), Akif Javed, Rumman Raees
The focus will be on
Luke Ronchi (Islamabad United)
Luke Ronchi is enjoying perfect shape with the bat. So far he’s completed his job quite horribly because of which his negative has been able to reap some fantastic effects in this year of this T20 tournament. He’s now the leading runscorer in PSL 2020 with 248 runs in seven matches in a hit rate of 155. If he was able to click on a great knock together with the bat. Then the odds of Islamabad United winning the match will probably be rather significant.
Rilee Rossouw (Multan Sultans)
Rilee Rossouw, the left-hander is in red hot form with the bat. He scored blistering 44-ball ton which aided his side winning that experience with utter dominance. He’s an alone warrior out of his group, who’s always scoring package of runs together with his willow.
Rossouw has mustered 189 runs in six matches with the support of a singleton with a beautiful attack rate of 154.91. One big knock out of his bat could complete the game in favour of his group Multan Sultans, and it’s going to be interesting to see if he could do this or not from Islamabad United.
