Predicted Semi-finalists Of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023
Islamabad United will start as one of the favorites to win the PSL 2023. They are the only team to win PSL twice. The team lifted the trophy in 2016 and 2018. They have the most wins among all other teams in the league stage to date.
The team under the leadership of Shadab Khan has power-packed players such as Moeen Ali, Alex Hales, Mohammad Wasim Jr, and Hasan Ali, to name a few. The side is strong enough to defeat any team on any given day.
Another team who will be among the favorites is Lahore Qalanders. The defending champions have framed a star-studded team. Led by Shaheen Shah Afridi, the squad comprises proven match winners such as Rashid Khan, Harry Brook, Liam Dawson, Fakhar Zaman, etc, who can win matches for the team single-handedly. They will hope to repeat the PSL 2022 performance and bring home the trophy for the second time.
Peshwar Zalmi is due for a big performance in the PSL. After their victory in the second season on PSL, they have been unlucky not to advance to the top 2 teams. This time, the team led by Babar Azam will be itching to get going from match 1.
They have the firepower in their tank with proven match-winners such as Mohammad Haris, Mujeeb, Jimmy Nesham, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, etc. All they need is a collective effort and we believe it will come this PSL season.
Multan Sultans were included in the PSL frame in the year 2018. The first 2 seasons did not go well for them. But, they bounced back and have performed consistently in the last 3 seasons. They were also the winners of 2021 and lost in the finals against Lahore Qalandars in 2022.
Consistent teams are always tough to handle. They will be led by Mohammad Rizwan who will be assisted by some quality players such as Tim David, Adil Rashid, David Miller, Khushdil Sha, etc. Overall, they have one of the best squads going forward in PSL 2023.
Who Will Win PSL 2023?
Among these four teams, two teams will be facing each other in the finals of the PSL 2023. According to the past record and the current team squad, we feel it will be Islamabad United and Multan Sultans who will lock horns against each other in the finals of the PSL 2023.
Regarding who will win PSL 2023, it is going to be a tough choice between Islamabad United and Multan Sultans. Both teams are equally dominating. If we are to choose one team who will win PSL 2023, our prediction says it will be Multan Sultans. We believe they will be able to cross the final hurdle this time and lift their second PSL trophy.
