Multan Sultans, the newbie of PSL is right on top of the table with two wins from two matches. The other teams are stunned. Both the teams who have played against the Sultans and the ones who have not. With four points to their credit and a run rate of +1.2760, Multan Sultans are the current champs of PSL 2018.
They meet Islamabad United today. They have lost the only match that they have played. But we are still at the beginning of the tournament. There is no telling how things could go. What we can do is keep a track of the players who are playing consistently and add them to our fantain fantasy lineup.
Multan Sultans are not likely to change their playing eleven.

The high wind here will make a good swing. That is not good for the batsmen. Win the toss and bowl first might be the call for the team winning the toss. Restrict the team to a low total and then try to get it.
