Multan Sultans win toss, bowl first against Quetta Gladiators

Multan Sultans won the toss and opted to bowl against Quetta Gladiators in today’s first match at the Sharjah Cricket Ground.
Sarfraz-led Quetta have had a rollercoaster second week of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL). They beat Islamabad United easily by 6 wickets on Wednesday, but lost to Peshawar Zalmi in a low-scoring thriller the next day, courtesy of a heroic performance by the injured Darren Sammy.
Quetta, who have won two and lost two matches so far this season, have plenty of positives though. Shane Watson is in fiery form with the bat, averaging 31.75 with a fifty to his name already. All-rounder Mohammad Nawaz has proven to be the most economical bowler of this season, with an economy rate of 3.83 so far.
For Multan Sultans, PSL debutant Imran Tahir has proven to be their go-to man. The South African spin wizard has 7 wickets from 3 matches so far, at an economy of 7.32.
Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara is also in the form of his life, averaging 42 with the bat this season.
