PSL 7 champions Lahore Qalandars lifting the winners trophy

The complete PSL 2023 schedule has been announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Lahore Qalandars, the reigning champions, will face Multan Sultans, the last season’s finalists, to start the eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League.

Every season has seen growth for PSL without a doubt. Both domestic and international players have the opportunity to showcase their abilities as new talents emerge. 

For instance, players like Saim Ayub, Mubasir Khan, Aimal Khan, Shahwaiz Irfan, and others will be in the spotlight this season.

Lahore Qalandars will certainly have their eyes on becoming back-to-back champions. Thereafter, they’ll be the first team to win consecutive PSLs. 

On the other hand, Islamabad United will look to become the only team with three PSL titles. And unquestionably, they have all the talent in the world to pull this off.

Here’s what the PCB chairman, Mr. Najam Sethi, had to say: “We aim to make the HBL PSL bigger, better, and stronger than ever before with the overarching ambition to make it the first-choice event for leading T20 cricketers.”

PSL 8 Venues

As for the PSL 8 venues, we have matches in four different stadiums this year. Multan, Karachi, Lahore, and Rawalpindi will all host matches.

Here’s the venue list for PSL 2023.

  • Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan
