Karachi Kings opt to bowl; fit-again Shahid Afridi returns

Toss Karachi Kings opt to bowl v Multan Sultans

Karachi Kings won the toss and opted to bowl against Multan Sultans in Lahore. This top-of-the table clash was in doubt because of the heavy rains that had lashed Lahore over much of the past 24 hours. Karachi made one change to the side that should alter the composition of the team, with batting allrounder Cameron Delport replaced by left arm fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan.

Multan, who maintained a perfect record in Multan, will look to extend their three-match winning streak and keep their place at the top of the table. They made one change as well: Bilawal Bhatti, who came into the side for Shahid Afridi, dropped out again, with the legspinner back fit.

Multan Sultans: Zeeshan Ashraf (wk), Moeen Ali, Shan Masood (capt), RIlee Rossouw, Ravi Bopara, Khushdil Shah, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Ilyas, Mohammad Irfan, Imran Tahir

Karachi Kings: Babar Azam, Sharjeel Khan, Alex Hales, Chadwick Walton, Imad Wasim, Iftikhar Ahmed, Aamer Yamin, Chris Jordan, Mohammad Amir, Mitchell McClenaghan, Umer Khan
