KAR vs MUL Dream11 Prediction: Karachi Kings and Multan Sultans will meet each other in the first match of PSL 2022. The teams will be pumped up as the Pakistan Super League has come back to Pakistan after playing the second half of the last season in UAE.
The champions of PSL 2020 will be starting the tournament with a lot of hope this time. Their skipper Babar Azam has been in great touch last year and they would want him to take it a step forward and bring glory to Karachi this time. With the likes of Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim in their squad, their bowling looks lethal. On the other hand, their batting will be led by Azam himself and Sharjeel Khan.
Probable Playing XI: Sharjeel Khan, Babar Azam (c), Joe Clarke (wk), Shahibzada Farhan, Tom Lammonby, Jordan Thompson, Lewis Gregory, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Ilyas, Umaid Asif, Mohammad Amir
The defending champions Multan Sultans will be eyeing to bring another title home. Their skipper Mohammad Rizwan has made a lot of noise in international cricket in the last 12 months and was awarded T20I player of the year as well. David Willey and Imran Tahir are expected to shoulder the bowling responsibility. The tussle is between two of the most celebrated sides of PSL and we have two fellow openers from Pakistan leading their flags.

KAR vs MUL Grand League Tips
Keep Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in the team but don’t make them the skippers are all the players would be doing the same.
Selecting pacers in the line-up is a better option than spinners as dew will be a factor. Mohammad Amir or Dahani can be your choice.
