Pitch Report

Only one game has taken place at the Multan Cricket Stadium in PSL 2024 so far. It was the aforementioned game between Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings. Reeza Hendricks, who won the Player of the Match award for his knock of 79* off 54 balls in the first innings, said in the post-match presentation ceremony that the ball was holding for the spinners. The Powerplay is going to be crucial as the teams would want to capitalise on the field restrictions and get as many runs as possible before scoring gets tougher with the old ball. There isn’t any real possibility for rain and the fans are expected to witness an uninterrupted encounter.
