Dubai: Quetta Gladiators won the toss and elected to bowl first against Multan Sultans
Multan Sultans have won four of their six matches with one rained off. If they win again against Sarfraz Ahmed’s led team, then they will be almost through to the playoffs considering Lahore can only go to ten points if they win all their remaining five matches and cannot catch the Sultans sitting pretty at the top with nine points.
