MUL vs QUE Prediction: Multan Sultans will take on the Quetta Gladiators in the 25th match of PSL 2022. Multan Sultans, led by Mohammad Rizwan, have had a dream run so far, winning 7 games in 8 matches, with a lone defeat at the hands of Lahore Qalandars. They lastly beat the Karachi Kings by 7 wickets at the end of which the defending champions confirmed themselves a top-two spot in the points table. Meanwhile, the hustle continues for the Quetta Gladiators, who have lost their last two matches to Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars respectively. For the Gladiators, who are at the fifth spot with merely 3 wins and 5 losses, the next two games pose a must-win scenario to keep the hopes alive for the eliminators.
Multan Sultans have played like a champion side since the commencement of PSL 2022. The batting department never seemed to have bothered the defending champions. Even the bowling attack comprising the likes of Blessing Muzarabani, Shahnawaz Dahani, Imran Tahir and Khushdil Shah has managed to terrorize the batters into cheap dismissals.
For Quetta Gladiators, their bowling has been dreadful in PSL 2022, with the only positive being a young Naseem Shah, who has bagged 11 scalps while averaging 22.81. The likes of Ghulam Mudassar, Iftikhar Ahmed, Sohail Tanvir and Khurram Shahzad have been pretty expensive in each of the fixtures played so far. Even their batting line-up, which boasts an in-form Will Smeed and Jason Roy, hasn’t had much success in the last two outings, owing to their middle-order debacles. All in all, the situation looks a bit gloomy in the Gladiators’ tent and it could turn worse in case they fail to dominate at any stage over the Sultans.
MUL vs QUE Head to Head: Both Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators have won 4 games each against each other in faceoffs to date. Multan Sultans have little to no weakness in their side, which is visible in the results. For Quetta Gladiators, the mainstays would be Jason Roy, Will Smeed, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Naseem Shah, and in case the quartet ends up with a forgettable show, then it’s a lost cause for the former champions. As per MUL vs QUE dream11 team prediction, Multan Sultans have been backed as the favorite to win this match.
Bet 365: MUL 1.57, QUE 2.37
From Quetta Gladiators, English opener Will Smeed seems like an enticing option from a fantasy perspective. Meanwhile, the top picks from Multan Sultans would be their opening duo: Shan Masood and Mohammad Rizwan, for they could be expected to add crucial 30-40s to their individual tallies, to say the least.

Batter-friendly conditions have wreaked havoc on the scorecards in the Pakistan Super League 2022. In all likelihood, the high scoring pattern will extend to this match as well with very little assistance to the bowlers. As per MUL vs QUE today match prediction, anything less than 180 on this wicket could be a chase-able target for the opposition.
With the match commencing in the afternoon hours, it’s going to be a bit of hazy sunshine in the first half. Cloud covers are likely to take over at the latter stages. The temperature will hover between 18-23 degrees Celsius as per Accuweather, and humidity levels would rise from 52-66 percent as the game progresses.
Quetta needs to win in the next two matches to have a shot in the knockouts. Unlikely that the Sarfaraz Ahmed-captained side enforces any changes despite two consecutive losses from their last outings. Multan Sultans might make a change, with Abbas Afridi coming in place of left-armer Rumman Raees. Rest all looks set for the table-toppers for this fixture.
MUL Playing XI: Shan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan (wk & c), Rilee Rossouw, Tim David, Khushdil Shah, Asif Afridi, Abbas Afridi, Imran Tahir, Blessing Muzarabani, Shahnawaz Dahani
QUE Playing XI: Jason Roy, Will Smeed, James Vince, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk & c), Iftikhar Ahmed, Umar Akmal, Noor Ahmad, Sohail Tanvir, Naseem Shah, Ghulam Mudassar, Khurram Shahzad
