The journey to the 2024 PSL final saw Multan Sultans secure a spot after a dominant 7-wicket win in the Qualifier, while Islamabad United fought their way through both Eliminators. Multan has shown exceptional form throughout the tournament, though they stumbled in their last match against Islamabad.

Islamabad, on the other hand, enters the final with confidence, having comfortably won their previous Eliminator matches. To secure a win, they will rely on key players like Martin Guptill and Imad Wasim to deliver their best performance. It promises to be a thrilling match between two very strong teams.

Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United Betting Tips – Analysis

MS vs IU Coin Toss

In the 10 matches played in Karachi so far, teams batting second have won 6 times and lost 4 times. Islamabad United has been particularly strong in chasing targets recently.

Considering that 2 out of 3 knockout matches were won by the chasing team, we anticipate both captains opting to field first if they win the toss in the upcoming final.

MS vs IU Who Will Win?

The Multan Sultans have only won one out of their three finals so far. They are facing a tough challenge against a strong United team who have won their last four matches in a row. However, the Sultans have a balanced team with both skill and experience, which is important in high-pressure finals.

Last time, they missed out on the trophy by just one run, but this time, we believe they will make it right. We predict that the Multan Sultans will win the final and lift the trophy.

MS vs IU Top Batters

For the Multan Sultans, Yasir Khan, Mohammad Rizwan, and Usman Khan are our top picks for batting. Usman Khan, batting at number three, has been outstanding with 373 runs in just six innings, including a crucial 36 not out in the Qualifier match. Rizwan has been consistently excellent in T20 cricket, scoring 43 against Islamabad United earlier in the 2024 PSL.

On the other hand, for Islamabad United, we recommend Imad Wasim, Martin Guptill, and Haider Ali. Ali’s recent unbeaten knock of 52 in the Eliminator 2 showcased his form, while Guptill, despite joining late in the tournament, has brought a new level of batting prowess, with an impressive record of 62 scores of 50+ in T20s.

Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United Top Bowler

For the Multan Sultans’ bowling lineup, keep an eye on Usama Mir, Mohammad Ali, and Chris Jordan. Ali might not have been as explosive lately, but he has still bagged 18 wickets. Jordan, a seasoned T20 campaigner, brings experience with 368 dismissals in 355 matches.

Meanwhile, for Islamabad United’s bowling attack, focus on Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, and Naseem Shah. Shah’s recent form has been stellar, boasting 15 wickets at an impressive rate. Wasim, known for his all-round skills, shone with both bat and ball in recent matches.
