PSL 2020: Quetta, Multan match abandoned
Umpires called off the game at Gaddafi Stadium and both teams were awarded a point
Heavy rain forced a crucial Pakistan Super League cricket match between defending champion Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans to be abandoned on Wednesday without a ball being bowled.
Umpires called off the game at Gaddafi Stadium and both teams were awarded a point.
Multan, which have already qualified for the playoffs, lead the standings with 12 points. They have won five of their eight games and lost only one match early in the tournament against Islamabad United. Two of their matches ended in no result because of rain.
Multan still have two games in hand - against Peshawar Zalmi in Karachi on Friday and at Lahore Qalandars on Sunday. They has a good chance to finish among the top two in the playoffs.
Quetta, Karachi and Islamabad all have seven points but the defending champions are at the bottom of the standings in the six-team event on net run-rate. Karachi still have three matches to go, including games against Quetta and Islamabad.
