Fighting for the remaining spot in the final, the Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi will lock horns in the Eliminator 2 of the PSL 2023. After having an incredible season both these teams will battle it out one more time to stay alive and face Multan Sultans in the summit clash. Entering this game, Zalmi pulled off a 12-run win over Islamabad United, whereas the Qalandars were demolished in an 84-run win by Multan.
The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore has always presented great batting tracks. The average 1st innings score is 175 in domestic T20 games.
Despite their abysmal performance in the previous game, the Lahore Qalandars still have one of the top teams in the PSL. Their bowling attack which is considered the best in the tournament had a great performance against Multan Sultans. But their batters were a major disappointment as they were bundled out for just 76.

Similarly, like the Qalandars, Peshawar Zalmi had a tough game against Islamabad United in Eliminator 1 where they managed to pull off a win. The fixture saw the Peshawar bowling attack step up after some poor performances in previous matches. On the other hand, the Zalmi batters have been on song throughout the season, especially Babar Azam, who would want to continue his dream run against Lahore.
