Karachi Kings on Thursday set a 177-run target for Multan Sultans in the 16th match of Pakistan Super League's (PSL) sixth edition at Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.
The Sultans have put up a competitive score on the board, courtesy 68-run partnership between the team's captain, Mohammad Rizwan, and Riley Rossouw.
Rossouw scored 44, Sohaib Maqsood 31, and Rizwan hit 29 runs before being sent back to the pavilion.
The Kings' skipper Imad Wasim saw his side off to a good start as he got Rahmanullah Gurba's wicket for just three runs in the first over, while Waqas Maqsood bowled Shoaib Maqsood for 31 runs in the third over.
The Karachi Kings had a good run in the first phase of the PSL in Karachi, winning three out of their five matches. The Sultans, on the other hand, had managed to win just one of the five games it played in first leg of the tournament.
This is the second match between the two sides, with the first having been played in Karachi in the first leg of the tournament. It was a one-sided affair even after the Sultans posed a mammoth total on the board, only to be comfortably chased by the Kings, who won the game with seven wickets in hand and in less than 19 overs.
