Babar Azam’s Peshawar Zalmi will need to upset defending champions Lahore Qalandars if they hope to reach the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023 final as the two sides face off in Eliminator 2 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Friday (March 17). Shaheen Shah Afridi’s Qalandars had lost the PSL Qualifier to last year’s runners-up Multan Sultans by a massive 84-run margin and will need to bounce back from that reverse quickly.
The Zalmi side, on the other hand, who finished fourth after the league stage are coming off an impressive 12-run win over Islamabad United in the Eliminator 1 on Thursday (March 17) night. Skipper Babar, who scored an impressive half-century, became the fastest batsman to score 9,000 runs in T20 cricket.
The Qalandars boast off an impressive bowling attack with their skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi and all-rounder Rashid Khan among the top five wicket-takers in PSL 2023. But battle of the contest will surely be Babar Azam vs Shaheen Shah Afridi.
