Multan Sultans Team Squad 2020

Multan Sultans Team Squad for PSL 2020

Multan Sultan team 2020 roster is placed here. The Multan Sultans were added to five existing teams at the end of the second edition of the tournament, but the news that came in before the start of the fourth was their contract had been terminated. Going into the fifth season of the PSL,  Multan Sultans have retained Platinum player Mohammad Irfan who had recently played for Pakistan again and Boom Boom Shahid Afridi as a Diamond Player and Player Mentor.

The Gold Category retainees are James Vince and Junaid Khan, while Shan Masood (silver) and Mohammad Illyas are the other players retained.

Andre Russell has opted not to play in the competition and had to be released, while the others who have not been picked by the team include Chris Green, Mohammad Abbas, Nicholas Pooran and Numan Ali.

It’s surprising that the Multan Sultans haven’t really gone for the hard-hitting batsmen especially for their home games where the pitches will be flat. Moeen Ali was their first Draft pick, while South African Rilee Rossouw has also made it to the side.

Ravi Bopara, who looked to be on his way out from cricket, had a brilliant season at the T20 Blast in 2019 and is back into the reckoning. He will be their key player with the bat and the ball. Watch out for Pakistani seamer Sohail Tanvir who will look to make most of his chances too.

Key Players on Multan Sultans Team 2020

Shahid Afridi: Afridi is a legend of the game and for all one knows, might not play too much longer. So watch him while he’s still around as he continues to deliver with the bat and ball respectively and at times reverse those roles too.

Ravi Bopara: An all-rounder who has had a taste of the PSL in the past and done well too. He had a good season with the T20 Blast which should boost his confidence and it will be interesting to see how his bowling goes on the flatter pitches of Pakistan.

Moeen Ali: Another all-rounder, the third in this list and it shows the value of such players. Moeen can offer a lot in terms of his off-spin but it will be interesting to see how he goes with the bat given he has been dropped from the England Test team.

Wasim Akram joined the squad as the cricket operations director of the side and Tom Moody joins the team as their head coach and they can be expected to remain a part of the set-up even for the new team.

The Schon Group had won the rights to own the Multan Sultans team, and the team was based in Multan, joining the Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators, Lahore Qalandars, Karachi Kings and Islamabad United. However, they were unable to keep pace with paying the PSL money for the fourth season too and were suspended from the competition.

One of the reasons why a sixth team was included in the PSL is to cash in on the ever-increasing popularity of the cricket league. Last season, Pakistan cricket fans had taken to the PSL like fish to water, surpassing most expectations as far as TV ratings are concerned. The Multan Sultan squad is placed above.
