Multan Sultans opted to field against Islamabad United
Multan Sultans won the toss in a rain-reduced game, and have opted to field first. After rains lashed Islamabad for much of the past few days, the groundstaff had a huge challenge getting the outfield dry enough to get a game on. The ground was finally ready for play, but the time lost meant only a nine-overs-a-side contest was possible.
Multan will qualify with a win, and made a pair of changes in a bid to do just that. James Vince and Junaid Khan come into the XI, replacing Muhammad Irfan and Ravi Bopara.
Islamabad, who fell victim to the weather yesterday, succumbing to a nine-run defeat on the DLS method to Peshawar Zalmi, made two changes too, Mohammad Musa and Amad Butt coming in for Faheem Ashraf and Zafar Gohar.
