The Pakistan Super League continues on Friday with a battle between Peshawar Zalmi and Multan Sultans, with plenty to play for at the Pindi Club Ground, Rawalpindi.
Both teams have won four out of the eight games they have played so far in this year’s PSL, and victory here will secure one of them a place in the playoff stages.
Peshawar Zalmi goes into the clash with a point to prove. A scintillating performance from England batter Jason Roy punished them in their previous game, as Quetta Gladiators chased down 241 runs to claim the win.

Babar Azam’s team will need to come up with a better bowling performance on Friday if they are to get back to winning ways.
Meanwhile, last year’s PSL runners-up Multan Sultans — led by Mohammad Rizwan — are on a three-match losing streak, having previously won four games on the bounce.
When these two teams met earlier in the season, Multan Sultans won comprehensively by 56 runs.
