They keep winning and winning big. After thrashing Peshawar Zalmi in a replay of last season's final by 42 runs on Thursday, they take the field on Friday to face Lahore Qalandars in Lahore.
Unbeaten in six matches so far, leaders Multan Sultans (with 12 points) will start favourites against third-placed Lahore Qalandars, who have won three of their five matches in PSL 2022 for six points.
For Sultans, it's all about continuing the momentum. And a win tonight will complete a league double against Qalandars. In the first leg, Sultans chased down a target of 207 runs to beat Qalandars by five wickets.
The Shaheen Afridi-led Lahore Qalandars lost their last match against Quetta Gladiators by seven wickets. But a win will reinvigorate a very strong team, which has the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Rashid Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, etc.
Multan Sultans lead Lahore Qalandars 6-4 in the head-to-head record. Sultans won both the matches last season.
