The defending champions Quetta Gladiators are leading the points table with six points in their four outings. They have registered back to back two significant victories in PSL 2020. Now, they will aim to extend their winning streak to three against Multan Sultans.
In batting, they have Jason Roy, Shane Watson, who can dismantle any bowling unit on their day. In the previous game, Roy scored a match-winning fifty for his team. He is one of the positives for Gladiators, who has scored two fifties in his four outings. Also, their bowling line-up looks pretty on a track that has given decent performances in the past couple of games.
Multan Sultans are giving a tough fight to other teams in PSL 2020 as their main aim is to lift PSL trophy for the first time. They are just behind Gladiators with four points in three games. They are one of the balanced sides in this season of PSL that consists of some experience and young players in their side.
