After a good win in their first game, tables turned upside down for the Islamabad United in the 4th match of the PSL 2019. They were overhauled by the Multan Sultans in a low-scoring encounter by 5 wickets. The side will be back in action on Sunday for the game against the Quetta Gladiators within a gap of 24 hours.

There will be a lot of pressure on the United heading into this game as playing back-to-back games won’t be easy. The Gladiators enter into this match on the back of a convincing win against Peshawar Zalmi. It will be interesting to see if the Islamabad United team can find the momentum back and get back to the winning ways.
