MOHAMMAD RIZWAN- MULTAN SULTANS

Not many batters would be back to score most runs nowadays when Babar Azam is in option. However, such has been the form of Mohammad Rizwan. The right-handed batter enjoyed a dream run last year and piled up a plethora of runs across formats. He was also exceptional in PSL 2021 and should be expected to replicate his heroics again.

SHAHNAWAZ DAHANI – MULTAN SULTANS

With 20 wickets in 11 matches, Shahnawaz Dahani finished as the highest wicket-taker of PSL 2021. The right-arm pacer can set the speed gun on fire and the bucket of variations in his arsenal makes him even more effective. Dahani is also a capped player now and many eyes will be on him.

Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan will square off against each other in this game, making it a fascinating contest. Both sides will come out all guns blazing in their opening game of the competition.
