Islamabad United’s strength is their batting line up of Alex Hales, Paul Stirling as these two are destructive openers then they have Phil Salt, Shadab Khan, Hussain Talat in middle order to give stability and for finisher’s job they have all rounders Lewis Gregory, Faheem Ashraf and Asif Ali. In bowling they have Hasan Ali who will lead their pace attack, young Musa Khan and Faheem Ashraf for his support and in spin Shadab Khan and Zafar Gohar will take the responsibility.
On the other side, Multan Sultans have Mohammad Rizwan who is in fine form, James Vince, Chris Lynn, Rilee Rossouw, Shoaib Maqsood who all are doing well in this format and all rounders Shahid Afridi and Carlos Brathwaite for finisher’s job.

Here we are going to discuss about a few players from both sides who can be very good picks for ISL vs MUL Dream 11 Prediction teams
Mohammad Rizwan : The wicket keeper batsman is in fine form, captaining Multan Sultans and his recent T20 scores are 104*, 51, 42 and 89 so he has good form with him.
Alex Hales : He just had an excellent season of Big Bash League where he scored close to 600 runs and did well in PSL’s last season as well and he will be the key batsman for Islamabad United in this season.
Shadab Khan : The all rounder is captain of Islamabad United and like last year he is expected to bat at number 4 and given his ability he can change the game with bat and also a fine spinner.
James Vince : He might open or bat at number 3 for Multan Sultans. He is also in fine form as he did well in Big Bash League and played a good knock of 90 odd runs in the final of that league two weeks ago and will look to carry that form in this league.
