MUL vs KAR Prediction: The 23rd match of the Pakistan Super League 2022 pits Multan Sultans against the Karachi Kings at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on February 16. Defending champions’ six-match winning streak came to an end in their last outing against the Lahore Qalandars, as they suffered a 52-run drubbing while failing to chase a target of 183. Regardless of the defeat, the Mohammad Rizwan-led side sits atop the points table with an NRR of +0.688. Karachi Kings, meanwhile, are out from the playoffs contention and all they can do at this stage is to wind up the season with a few wins in their remaining matches. The Babar Azam-captained side lay at the bottom with 7 defeats in as many games, with 3 more to go before their season comes to an end.
Multan Sultans vs Karachi Kings PSL 2022 Match 23 Details
Multan Sultans would faceoff the Karachi Kings for the second and final time in PSL 2022. The earlier encounter witnessed the Kings being contained to a mere 124, courtesy of spin maestro Imran Tahir, who finished with figures of 3/16. Heading into this game, Sultans would expect the in-form duo of Sohaib Maqsood and skipper Mohammad Rizwan to rack up the runs and set the foundation, followed by Tim David, who has been nothing but carnage with the willow. Spinners Imran Tahir and Khushdil Shah have outplayed the batters on a number of occasions and along with pacer Shahnawaz Dahani the trio has picked up 28 wickets in total, and there’s a good chance they could grab a few more in this matchup.
Karachi Kings’ mainstay – Babar Azam – would be backing himself to extend his consistency. Joe Clarke continues to be struggling with form, while Sharjeel Khan, Qasim Akram and later Imad Wasim showed plenty of intent as they scored 40+ each in the last outing. Pacers Chris Jordan, Umaid Asif and Mir Hamza have had their share of economical and expensive outings, but they would still be optimistic for this fixture.

MUL vs KAR Head to Head: Multan Sultans have a 5-3 record in wins over the Karachi Kings.
For Karachi Kings, it’s been a completely abysmal run, with Babar Azam’s consistent flow of runs being the only positive in the ongoing season. Bowlers have gone for economies around 9-10 in the matches contested so far. Credits to Sharjeel Khan (44), Qasim Akram (51*) and Imad Wasim (2/30 and 55) for their outrageous shows in the last outing, however, it’s unlikely that they’d be able to tackle the attack offered by Mohammad Rizwan & Co. Batting never seemed to have an issue for the Multan Sultans, as they possess three of the highest run-getters in PSL 2022, who’ve literally toyed along with the bowlers. As per MUL vs KAR dream11 team prediction & the odds, Multan Sultans are favorites by a good margin for this fixture.

MUL vs KAR Playing XI
Unlikely that Multan Sultans will force any changes in spite of the rare failure in the last outing agianst the Lahore Qalandars. With three more matches to go and a chance a grab the top spot for the Qualifier-1, there’s a hunch that skipper Mohammad Rizwan would stick with the same line-up. Karachi Kings, meanwhile, have tried a few changes but none of them have worked in their favor. Even bringing in all-rounder Jordan Thompson in place of Ian Cockbain didn’t do much help, yet, they are probably going to opt for the same side for this game as well.
