Lahore Qalandars will take on Peshawar Zalmi in the Eliminator 2 match of the Pakistan Super League 2023. 

LAH vs PES: Match Preview:


Lahore Qalandars qualified for the playoffs as the top team in the league stages with 7 wins in 10 matches. However, they were handed a massive 84-run defeat in Qualifier 1 at the hands of Multan Sultans. Chasing 161 runs to win, Lahore's batting crumbled for just 76 runs in 14.3 overs. Sam Billings was the top scorer with 19 runs while David Wiese and Haris Rauf were the only other batters to score in double digits. 

Haris Rauf picked up 3 wickets with the ball while Zaman Khan and Rashid Khan managed 1 wicket. Rashid Khan was a pretty miser in conceding, maintaining an economy rate of 4.50 in 4 overs. Captain Shaheen Afridi had a forgettable outing as he was thrashed for 47 runs in 4 overs without a wicket. 

On the other hand, captain Babar Azam and the pace battery took Peshawar Zalmi to a win in Eliminator 1, giving them a chance at the finals. Babar Azam is top-scored for his team with 64 runs off 39 balls. Mohammad Haris contributed with 34 runs while youngster Saim Ayub scored 23 runs off 16 balls. 

The pacers led the comeback in bowling as the opponents were at 128/1 in 14 overs stage while chasing 184 to win, and the match looked decided. However, Aamer Jamal and Salman Irshad brought back Peshawar to the game as the opponents crumbled to 147/5 in 3 overs. Ultimately, Peshwar won by 12 runs.
