Table-toppers Islamabad United will take on Multan Sultans at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi in their final league game of PSL 2021.

Islamabad United have secured their qualification for the next round, having won seven of their nine matches. On the other hand, Multan Sultans have four wins and four losses from eight games.
In their previous encounter, Islamabad United got the better of Peshawar Zalmi in a high-scoring game.

Peshawar Zalmi came hard in the chase, but could only get as far as 232. The win was Islamabad United’s fourth in a row.
Multan Sultans were absolutely brilliant against Quetta Gladiators as they registered a massive 110-run win to boost their net run rate. Shan Masood starred with 73 while Johnson Charles contributed a swift 47. Imran Tahir (3/7) and Imran Khan (2/13) then rolled over Quetta Gladiators for a mere 73 runs.
