MS vs PZ Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for PSL 2021 Final match.
The final match of the ongoing sixth season of the Pakistan Super League will be played between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi in Abu Dhabi tonight.
Multan, who have won an incredible five out of their six matches of the UAE leg, have a better overall record against Peshawar on paper. Having said that, the same shouldn’t mean that they should be taking their opponents lightly in the night of the final at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium.
While Zalmi’s net run rate in the league phase wasn’t as good as Multan, they upped their game when it mattered the most by defeating Karachi Kings and Islamabad United in the first and second eliminator respectively.

Having entered the final for the first time, Sultans wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity of lifting PSL 2021 title. Zalmi, on the other hand, had lifted the trophy in 2017 under Daren Sammy in addition to finishing as the runners-up in 2018 and 2019.
