Match 27 Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi | PSL 8 | 2023

Match 27 Multan Sultans vs Peshawar Zalmi , The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is a professional Twenty20 cricket league in Pakistan. The 8th edition of the PSL started from 13th February till 19th March of 2023.

Peshawar Zalmi take on Multan Sultans in today’s Pakistan Super League match. Because of Islamabad United’s humiliating defeat to Lahore Qalandars yesterday, the winner of today’s match has a good chance to catch Islamabad for second place on the standings, while the loser can only finish third.

The competition for the top four spots in the 2023 PSL is heating up. While Lahore and Islamabad have some breathing room, Quetta has a mathematical possibility of still qualifying if Peshawar or Multan falter. Both these teams are tied on 8 points, and a win tonight would almost certainly guarantee a place in the playoffs.

Peshawar, on the other hand, is coming off a morale-deflating loss to Quetta in which they were unable to defend 240. Despite Babar’s century, their bowlers failed to stop a furious Jason Roy, allowing 241 with 10 balls to spare. Multan, on the other side, lost a tight game against Islamabad in their previous meeting.

The equation is exceptionally straightforward for Zalmi, who play Islamabad in their last league phase encounter on Sunday. If they win both today and Sunday, they will pass Islamabad for second place since their net run rate is higher than Islamabad’s and will not worsen with two victories if both teams finish with 12 points. The Sultans will compete against the Quetta Gladiators.


Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and choose to bat first, Babar Azam, who represents Peshawar Zalmi, chooses to bowl after winning the toss.

What’s My prediction (no Calculations Whatsoever Just my 6th Sense Lets see) ?

The last 5 Matches between these teams, Multan Sultans won all 5 matches over Peshawar Zalmi, while Peshawar Zalmi only won 1 Match in the last six Matches between these teams. Both teams are looking to qualify to the next round today.

Sultans play Quetta Gladiators in their last match after today, therefore even if they win today, they will need aid from Zalmi to ensure that they beat Islamabad in order for Sultans to finish second While today’s win moves Zalmi closer to the top two, the reason is that Zalmi will play their last group stage encounter against Islamabad United.

My Prediction for the match is : Multan Sultans to Win

The Result ?

In the last game Multan Sultans defeated Peshawar Zalmi. by 56 runs after thier team bowled out at 154 runs. The bat stars for the Sultans were Rossouw and Rizwan.

Multan Sultans won the last match by 56 runs . Lets see what the result will be tonight.

Multan Sultans Won by 4 wickets.

Multan qualified for the playoffs with the highest-ever PSL run-chase. Peshawar has failed to defend 240 or higher for the second time in two games. It was chased down with 10 balls to spare in the last game, but just 5 tonight. Rossouw and Pollard put on a batting display before Anwar Ali and Usama Mir finished it off. Multan dropped two early wickets, but Pollard was pushed to the top of the order and, together with Rossouw, just unleashed their power-hitting on the unfortunate bowlers.

Pollard ran down the spinners and smashed Mujeeb for a hat-trick of sixes, while the left-hander proved lethal with his leg-side dominant strokes. Both hitters reached their fifties, and when Pollard collapsed, Rossouw went on to complete his century off 41 balls. His removal opened the door for Peshawar briefly, but it was immediately closed. Even if the bowlers disagree, one must commend the curator for crafting such pitches.
