Multan-Sultans

The Pakistan Super League PSL cricket league is home to the professional T20 cricket team Multan Sultans.

They have been participating in the competition since its third season in 2018 and won the PSL 6 championship. They play at Multan Cricket Stadium, which serves as their home field.

Ownership of the business changed frequently, going from Schon Properties to Alamgir Khan Tareen and Ali Khan Tareen, and finally to just Alamgir Khan Tareen.

Their management and coaching staff includes a number of former international cricket players. Their assistant and spin bowling coach is Mushtaq Ahmed, while their head coach is Andy Flower. Their first captain was Shoaib Malik, and their current captain is Muhammad Rizwan.

Ownership History

Schon Properties acquired this franchise at first and held it for 8 years before selling it after competing against 10 other bidders for the contract.

The contract between the owners and PCB was cancelled after the first season because they neglected to pay the yearly fee stipulated by the board. Control was taken up by PCB.

Following this, a tender for repurchasing the franchise was approved. The Multan Consortium’s Alamgir Khan Tareen and Ali Khan Tareen won the auction and acquired the squad. Alamgir Khan Tareen became the sole proprietor of the franchise in 2021, three years later.

Team Identity and Sponsors

The team’s uniform and emblem were unveiled at a ceremony in September 2017. A horse rider dressed traditionally for the Saraiki culture of Southern Punjab appears in their emblem. The official team colours are blue and marine green.
