Franchise history[edit] Few days after the conclusion of PSL 2 Chairman PSL Najam Sethi announced that there would be the sixth team in next season of PSL. Pakistan
Pakistan
Cricket Board (PCB) short-listed five names for sixth team. On 1 June 2017, from those five regions, Multan
Multan
was bought by Schön Properties after winning a bid of US$5.2 million per year, thus becoming the most expensive team of the PSL replacing Karachi Kings then.[9] 2018 season[edit] See also: Multan
Multan
Sultans in 2018 The Sultans began their inaugural campaign on a winning note as they defeated defending champions, Peshawar Zalmi, by 7 wickets in the chase of 152 runs.[10] In the following game, they beat Lahore Qalandars by 43 runs owing to a massive batting collapse induced by the Sultans' bowlers Junaid Khan and Imran Tahir. The former registered a hattrick as the duo reduced the Qalandars from 132-4 to 136 all-out.[11] However, the team's winning run came to an end in the next fixture as they lost to Islamabad United
Islamabad United
by 5 wickets in the defense of a below-par target of 114.[12] As the league progressed to Sharjah, Sultans' game against Karachi Kings was washed out due to persistent rain.[13] In the next game, the Sultans comfortable beat Quetta Gladiators
Quetta Gladiators
by 9 wickets in the chase of a low target of 103. The target was made possible by a batting collapse induced by the Sultans, as the Gladiators lost their last 5 wickets for just 1 run. This included a hat-trick from the legspinner, Imran Tahir.[14] With the tournament moving back to Dubai, the Sultans had two back-to-back games against Peshawar Zalmi
Peshawar Zalmi
and Quetta Gladiators, respectively. In the game against Peshawer, the team amassed the highest team total in this year's PSL, 183 runs, which was made possible by Sohaib Maqsood's belligerent innings of 85* (42). In reply, the Zalmis fell short by 19 runs.[15] Against the Gladiators, however, the team lost by 2 wickets in the defense of a 153-run target. The game was closely fought as Sultan's fast bowler, Umer Gul, secured 6 wickets for 24 runs, the best bowling figures this season, before the Gladiators prevailed off a penultimate-ball six. [16] Team identity[edit] On 1 August, it was announced that Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram
would switch his occupied position as the Director of Cricketing Operations from Islamabad United
Islamabad United
to the Multan
Multan
Sultans franchise for the 2018 PSL.[7] Earlier, it was rumoured that Waqar Younis
Waqar Younis
will unite with Akram to join the team Multan
Multan
Sultans,[17][18] though he replaced Akram's position at Islamabad United
Islamabad United
on 14 September.[19] Team's logo and kit was revealed in a ceremony, held on 22 September 2017. Owner Asher Schon said, "It is great to see everyone welcoming Multan
Multan
Sultans, the love and enthusiasm is surreal and makes us feel very proud on making the right choice of the team". Team director Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram
stated that the third season of PSL will be a treat for the crowd which will now get to see more home games.[20] It was also announced that former Australian cricketer Tom Moody
