KARACHI: Multan Sultans captain Shan Masood on Friday said Pakistan Super League (PSL) should have a new champion this time.
While talking to media in a virtual press conference, Masood said the teams have gathered once again after a break and everyone wants to maintain the winning momentum.
Multan Sultans will take on Karachi Kings on November 14 in the first playoff at the National Stadium Karachi.
Vowing to keep the momentum going, the Multan Sultans skipper said that they will miss Mahmudullah and James Vince who were ruled out of the league after testing positive for the coronavirus.
They have been replaced by Joe Denly and Brendan Taylor for the knockout stage.
“It would be good if there’s a new champion for the PSL this time,” Masood said.
Islamabad United have won the tournament twice while Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators have won one each. Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars have qualified for the first time for the second stage and are eying the top position this time.
He said that they will definitely feel the absence of spectators in the stadium.
“Although our first match is in the daytime, we had to practice in floodlights due to the engagements of other teams in the stadium,” Masood said.
The stadium was not available in the day for Multan Sultans for practice, he lamented.
