Quetta Gladiators will get their final shot at making the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 playoffs when they face Multan Sultans in their final game tonight.

Gladiators, currently sitting 5th in the league table, need to beat the already qualified Sultans by a healthy margin to stand a chance of making the last 4 ahead of Peshawar Zalmi who have a better net run rate.

But they have shown tremendous spirit in the last few games to keep the hope of a miracle.

Here is all you need to know ahead of their final match.

Multan Sultans vs Quetta Gladiators PSL head-to-head record:

The Sultans have a slight edge in this category with 6 wins to the Gladiators’ 4 courtesy of a 4-match win streak which began on June 16th 2021.

Sultans also got the better of Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men the last time these two met this season.

Where and when will the game take place?

Pindi Cricket Stadium will host the contest at 7:00 PM (PKT) in what will be the second-last game to be played at the venue before action shifts to Lahore once again.

Team Forms:

Both teams have won two of their last five matches but Sultans’ earlier run has already taken them through to the playoffs.

Mohammad Rizwan’s men ended a string of three straight defeats in style in their previous match against Peshawar Zalmi which would boost their confidence for this game.

They have also won four-straight games against tonight’s opposition which should also give them a psychological edge.

Gladiators, meanwhile, are on a two-game win streak which has kept their hopes alive of reaching the last four. A loss or a narrow win will eliminate them from the competition which should serve as a motivating factor.

Players to watch:

Rawalpindi has been a blessing for batters so each team’s hitters will likely have another field day tonight.

For Multan, Mohammad Rizwan is due some runs after a few lean outings while Rilee Rossouw is red-hot right now. Tim David and Kieron Pollard also give them plenty of batting firepower.

In the bowling department, Abbas Afridi has done well for them in recent games despite the wickets not being friendly while Usama Mir and Ihsanullah remain their biggest threats at any moment.

Gladiators, meanwhile, will depend on the in-form Jason Roy to repeat his heroics from the last game. In Martin Guptill, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez and Umar Akmal they also have great batting depth at their disposal.

Their bowling has been lacking throughout the tournament but Naseem Shah, Mohammad Hasnain and Mohammad Nawaz are capable wicket-taking bowlers.
