Future PSL Match Predictions
Who Will Win the PSL 2023?
We are so excited that the Pakistan Super League is back – starting on 13th February at the Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan. The season kicked off with a nail-biting cracker between the top two teams last season, the Lahore Qalandars versus the Multan Sultans.
But who will do it this year? Well, there’s a lot to consider, but it seems that the Multan Sultans have a lot going for them in 2023. They are being led by their wicket-keeper batsman, Mohammad Rizwan, who will want to build on last year’s performance. They were the top team coming out of the league stage, with 9 wins from 10 matches.
However, the squad looks even better this year, having added Josh Little, David Miller, Kieron Pollard, Wayne Parnell and Akeal Hosein to the lineup. As such, you can expect them to be named as one of the favourites in the top PSL online cricket betting sites.
The PSL 2023 Underdogs
You never know, sometimes it’s worth a punt on the underdogs – and this season we have the underdogs down as being Peshawar Zalmi, led by Babar Azam. There’s not much Babar doesn’t know about T20 cricket – and he has a top-quality team behind him… so he could potentially create something good with the help of newcomers Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Rovman Powell.
We also have Mohammad Haris who played 5 games last season, scoring 166 runs with an impressive 186.51 strike rate. He will no doubt prove to be a vital addition to the Zalmi side. Last season, the leading wicket-taker was Salman Irshad, who took 15 wickets – and hopefully, he will give a repeat performance this year.
PSL Prediction – The Teams
This season, there will be 6 teams taking part, teams which have been part of the tournament since its inception back in 2016. The only exception being the Multan Sultans that joined later on in 2017. These are the six teams taking part in this season’s action:
- Islamabad United
- Karachi Kings
- Lahore Qalandars
- Multan Sultans
- Peshawar Zalmi
- Quetta Gladiators
The PSL League Format
As is common with T20 leagues, the Pakistan Super League is played in a double round robin followed by playoffs format. Each of the teams will face the other teams twice during the round-robin league stage, meaning there are 30 matches in this part of the tournament.
When this comes to an end, the top 4 teams will reach the playoffs. This will consist of four matches:
- 2 eliminators
- 1 qualifier
- The Final
The two top-ranking teams will face off in the qualifier match and the winner will get a place in the finals automatically. The teams that ranked 3rd and 4th will compete in the first eliminator. Whichever team wins this will take on the team that lost the qualifier for the 2nd eliminator.
The winner of that match will take on the winner of the qualifier in the grand finale. The winner will be crowned the PSL Champion.
Pakistani Super League Venues
The PSL will consist of 34 matches in total, which will be played across 4 venues in:
However, this can change from season to season, with the 2022 tournament only being played in 2 different venues.
|National Stadium, Karachi||1955||34,000|
|Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore||1959||27,000|
|Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan||2001||30,000|
|Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi||1992||15,000|

PSL Team Prediction
Let’s look at what to expect from the teams this season:
Islamabad United (ISU)
- Captained By: Shadab Khan
- Star Players: Abrar Ahmed, Alex Hales, Asif Ali and Moeen Ali
- Last Season Result: 4th
This team is one of the most successful in the history of the league, having won 2 titles to date out of the 7 seasons. They didn’t have the strongest season last year, finishing in the 4th spot with just 4 wins from 10 matches followed by a drubbing in the 2nd eliminator by the Lahore Qalandars.
The leading run scorer was Alex Hales – who remains in the team. Meanwhile, Shadab Khan, Paul Stirling and Azam Khan all scored over 200 runs last season and will certainly add some strength to the squad.
In terms of bowling, their captain, Shadab Khan, was the top wicket-taker, with 19 wickets to his name. He will be joined by Fazalhaq Farooqi and Hasan Ali at pace attack along with the spin bowler sensation, Abrar Ahmen also part of the team.

- Last Season Result: 6th
They didn’t have a great time last season. However, their captain, Babar Azam transferred over to the Peshawar Zalmi for this season. Last year, they only managed 1 win from 10 matches, putting them right at the bottom of the table.
This season, Sharjeel Khan will be a big part of the team again. He managed an impressive 231 runs in the previous season. He will be joined by Qasim Akram, who played 5 matches and hit a 154.68 strike rate. They will be joined by Matthew Wade, the Australian power hitter and English player James Vince, who will add some strength and power to the batting squad.
This season the team boasts a stronger bowling lineup as well, with players such as Andrew Tye, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir, Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi. They also have some strong all-rounders such as Ben Cutting and Shoaib Malik who can have a big impact and add some balance to the team.

Lahore Qalandars (LHQ)
- Captained By: Shaheed Afridi
- Star Players: Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Rashid Khan and Sikandar Raza
- Last Season Result: Winner
It couldn’t have gone any better for the squad last year, who walked away with their very first PSL title. They are in with a pretty strong chance this season as well, as the team is very strong. In the last season, they qualified for the playoffs in 2nd spot, with 6 wins from 10 matches, but smashed the playoffs.
Their leading run scorer last year was Fakhar Zaman, with the captain, Shaheen Afridi, coming in as the highest wicket-taker. They will be joined this year by the English batsman, Harry Brook and the Zimbabwean all-rounder Sikandar Raza. Both had excellent T20 form in 2022, so will look to have an impact this year. Abdullah Shafique and Kamran Ghulam also batted well and will also take their place in the squad this year.
In terms of the bowling lineup, it’s pretty impressive. They boast Haris Rauf, Rashid Khan, Shaheen Afridi and Zaman Khan. Last season, Rashid Khan took an impressive 13 wickets from 9 matches.
- Rashid Khan,
- Haris Rauf,
- Shaheen Shah Afridi,
- David Wiese,

Multan Sultans (MS)
- Captained By: Mohammad Rizwan
- Star Players: Akeal Hosein, David Miller, Shahnawaz Dahani and Shan Masood
- Last Season Result: 2nd
Although they didn’t win last year, they were undeniably the strongest team, finishing the league stage with 9 wins from their 10 matches. Everyone thought they would be walking away with the title but Lahore Qalandars had other ideas.
In terms of the batting team, Shan Masood and captain Mohammad Rizwan will be joining forces again. Last season Rizwan managed to hit 546 runs with an impressive 68.25 average. Tim David was also pretty wild with his 278 runs at a 194.40 strike rate. He also smashed 21 sixes, the most in the season. This year, their batting lineup will be levelled up even more with the addition of the Proteas power hitter David Miller and Kieron Pollard, the West Indies all-rounder.
In terms of bowling, the Sultans will certainly feel the loss of Imran Tahir. Shahnawaz Dahani will have the support of overseas bowlers such as Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell and Josh Little. Then we have the great all-rounder, Khushdil Shah, who took 16 wickets last season and is also pretty mean with the bat as well.

- Khushdil Shah,
- Rilee Rossouw,
- Shan Masood,

Peshawar Zalmi (PSZ)

- Last Season Result: 3rd place
Last season, Peshawar Zalmi finished in 3rd place and was eliminated in the playoffs in the first eliminator by Islamabad United.
During the previous season, Babar Azam hit 343 runs and this year he will be playing for the Zalmi. He will be joined by overseas batters including Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Rovman Powell, Sherfane Rutheford and Tom Kohler-Cadmore. The batting lineup will also be strengthened by the presence of Mohammad Haris.
In terms of bowling, the Peshawar team looks strong, with names such as Mujeeb ur Rahman, Jimmy Neesham, Richard Gleeson and Salman Irshad who was the top wicket-taker with 15 wickets out of 8 matches.

Quetta Gladiators (QTG)
- Captained By: Sarfaraz Ahmed
- Star Players: Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Wanindu Hasaranga and Will Jacks
- Last Season Result: 5th
The Gladiators managed to take 2nd spot in the first two seasons of the PSL, then won the title in 2019. However, last season they managed just 4 wins from 10 matches, leaving them in 5th position.
Will Smeed and Jason Roy played very well last year and will be a big part of the team this year as well. Jason Roy managed 303 runs and a 170.22 strike rate. Sarfaraz Ahmed hit a century in Tests and will come into the new season with renewed confidence. The batting team will be joined by power hitter, Iftikhar Ahmed, which will do them a great favour given his current form.
In terms of the bowling team, they have signed Naseem Shah, the new Pakistan superstar, who earned international recognition during the Asia Cup 2022. He was the top wicket-taker last season, taking 14 wickets from 10 matches. Meanwhile, they have Odean Smith, Naveen ul Haq and Dwaine Pretorius as overseas pacers, all high-quality T20 cricketers.

About the PSL
The PSL is the Pakistan Super League, the top T20 league in Pakistan. This year it is back for its 8th instalment, which was all set to start on 13the February 2023 with a battle between last year’s two top teams, the Multan Sultans and Lahore Qalandars.
Last season, led by skipper Shaheen Afridi, the Qalandars took home their first-ever PSL championship… which means that now, all teams have lifted the PSL trophy at least once.
The PSL 8 draft was held in December 2022 – and it brought many changes to the teams. One of the biggest changes was the move from Karachi Kings to Peshawar Zalmi by the Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Kings suffered last season, with only 1 win from their 10 league games – but are hoping for better this season with the help from new signings Shoaib Malik and Haider Ali.
