Multan Sultans wins the maiden title of PSL 6
Multan Sultans bags the PSL season 6 trophy of 2021, winning the maiden title. The team scored a 47-run victory over Peshawar Zalmi, on Thursday.
The top-tiered winning partnership
Two rankling half-centuries from Sohaib Maqsood and Rilee Rossouw made them the top choices in the midway, after which customary wickets at key intervals saw off the Zalmi challenge. However Shahnawaz Dahani the rising star and the emerging talented bowler of the entire tournament completed wicket-less, the others stepped up and saved the day. Muzarabani and Imran took two wickets each and Imran Tahir took three wickets in the end.
Given how improbable it looked at different stages throughout these past months, just to be at this stage now, the last of the 6th season of the PSL between the Multan Sultans and the Peshawar Zalmi, is somewhat of a victory for the whole franchise itself.
The sudden announcement of PSL 6 in Abu Dhabi
There was anything but a distinct beginning and end date until June 3 when the PCB announced a timetable declaring June 9 as the beginning. Limited player-accessibility and the way that this would be played in peak summer in what is, basically, a hyper-created that the matches will be played in Abu-Dhabi.

Moreover, the Sultans have been the most preferred group in this Abu Dhabi leg, winning five of six games. Mohammad Rizwan’s leadership has never really dampen the interest of that minority which puzzles over whether he ought to be Pakistan captain; a competition that-isn’t with Babar Azam which got upgraded by the two opening together for Pakistan and being one and two on the run charts this season.
But for the Zalmis, it is the third time in the previous four seasons that they lost in the final. They failed to keep Sultan on the low for the first half of the first innings. And Hazratullah Zazai faced only five balls that cause the big partnership of Maqsood and Rossouw, resulting in an almost half-century and a victory for Sultans.
Furthermore, team Pakistan leaves for England tour where after reaching Birmingham, the team will leave for Derby where they will spend three days in Isolation.
Despite all the challenges and backlash PSL 6 has faced in the first part of the tournament, we do have the most deserving team taking the victory, cheers to Multan Sultans!
