Lahore Qalandars, the incumbent PSL winners, will play Babar Azam’s Peshawar Zalmi in Eliminator 2 of the PSL 2023 on Friday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, giving them a second chance to advance to the final (March 17). Multan Sultans destroyed Shaheen Shah Afridi’s Qalandars in the PSL 2023 Qualification earlier this week, but because they finished first after the league stages, they will have another chance to advance to back-to-back finals.
