ABU DHABI – Multan Sultans handed Quetta Gladiators a 110-run defeat in match 25 of the sixth edition at Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.

With an impressive batting by Shan Masood, Multan Sultans managed to build a solid target of 184 runs for Quetta Gladiators in the 25th match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL)’s sixth edition in Abu Dhabi.

Sultans took a good start as they lost the first wicket at 73 runs when Khurram Shahzad removed skipper Mohammad Rizwan for 21 runs in the ninth over.

The Multan team’s second player was dismissed by Zahir Khan in the tenth over when he sent Sohaib Maqsood to pavilion for five runs.
