Islamabad United opt to bowl in Lahore

Islamabad United chose to bowl v Multan Sultans

Islamabad United won the toss, and, as has been the pattern all tournament, elected to field first. Shadab Khan said the Islamabad bowlers had been slightly hampered by the dew factor when bowling second last ball, and admitted there needed to be significant improvements in all departments if Islamabad wanted to get their first win on the board.

Shan Masood acknowledged Sultans wished to bowl first, too. They were top of the table following a thumping win over Lahore Qalandars last game, and Masood said he hoped they would carry on where they left off on Friday. Sultans made no changes to that winning side.
