The Qualifier Match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 is being played between Multan Sultans and Islamabad United at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Expansion franchise Multan Sultans were the team to beat last year in the round-robin stage but weren’t the same side when the league resumed after the lockdown, losing both their play-offs matches and getting eliminated.

Islamabad United are the most decorated PSL side, winning the tournament twice – in 2016 and 2018. No other side has won it more than once. They are, however, coming off a horror campaign that saw them finish last and miss out on the play-offs.
