Rain delay after Karachi win toss, opt to bat against Multan


SHARJAH: High-flying Karachi Kings, who have won all three of their matches so far in the third edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL), won the toss and opted to bat against Multan Sultans as light rain delayed start of the match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Mohammad Amir has returned to the Karachi Kings’ playing XI, while Shahid Afridi has been rested today.

Karachi, who revamped their squad in the PSL drafts and appointed Imad Wasim as captain, have been rewarded for the overhaul: the younger lineup, starring power hitters as well as more steady players and pacers, has overcome Quetta Gladiators, defending champions Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars so far.

Multan Sultans started their debut PSL campaign on a winning note, beating Peshawar Zalmi in the tournament opener and Lahore Qalandars in their second match. But the side lost to Islamabad United by 5 wickets.
