Pacer Imran Khan and leg-spinner Imran Tahir starred as Multan Sultans secured a much-needed win against Karachi Kings by 12 runs in the match 16 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.

While chasing a respectable total of 177, Kings went off to a slow start and ultimately paid the prize by falling 12 runs short of the target.

Opener Babar Azam was the pick of Karachi Kings batsmen and remained unbeaten on 85 of 63 balls.

For Sultans, Imran claimed three wickets and gave away 28 runs in his four overs while Tahir bowled an economical spell and bagged two wickets.

Earlier, after being asked to bat first, Sultans went off to a flying start courtesy of Rilee Rossouw’s 44-run knock. At one stage they were 108 for three in the 11th over.

However, three quick wickets bought Kings back in the game but Kushdil Shah’s 44-run cameo of 32 balls guided Sultans to a respectable total of 176 for the loss of five wickets.

For Kings, all-rounder Thisara Perera was the most successful bowler as he claimed two wickets and gave away 12 runs in his three overs.

And that’s it. Sultans secured a 12-run victory, courtesy brilliant spells from Imran Khan and Imran Tahir.
