LAHORE: Multan Sultans set 164 runs target for Lahore Qalandars in first eliminator of the seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 at Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday.
Multan Sultans end with a par total. Muhammad Rizwan just could not get going today. He lost Shan Masood early but Aamer Azmat took the pressure off his skipper and kept the scoreboard ticking.
Rossouw too came in and did the same as he added over more than 1oo for third wicket with Rizwan. But the Sultans’ skipper was unable to get his timing right and struggled to get his score run over 100. He managed to do so only in the 19th over.
