Islamabad United Vs Multan Sultans Prediction and Betting Tips
The bookmakers have this match down as a close call, and in the outright winner betting, neither of these sides are expected to win the competition.
The reason why I’m going to go with the Sultans is down to their overseas contingent.
Choosing which four play from Rilee Rossouw, Imran Tahir, James Vince, Chris Lynn, Adam Lyth, and Carlos Brathwaite, will be a difficult task. I can’t see Lyth playing, but take your pick who else misses out.
Compare that to Islamabad, who have just lost Colin Munro, Reece Topley and Chris Jordan (replaced by Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan, and Paul Stirling), and there is a clear gulf in class.
The fly in the ointment though is Islamabad’s new signing Alex Hales. Like James Vince, Hales has just had an outstanding Big Bash season, and his confidence must be sky high.
Whoever wins the battle of the shunned English men (both have been overlooked for the English T20 squad to tour India), could decide the outcome of the match.
How the two men adapt to the different wickets (from Australia) will be interesting to see though.
When summing all this up though, the stronger overseas contingent combined with the form of newly appointed captain Mohammad Rizwan, makes the Sultans a good value pick.
