Zalmi is arguably the most popular franchise in PSL with a strong fan following. The fanfare around Zalmi this time around has reached new heights as they acquired the services of Pakistan’s all-format captain, Babar Azam.

The Yellow Storm will be hoping that Babar will lead them to their second title as they have assembled a strong squad for the upcoming 2023 PSL.
Peshawar Zalmi team players include a wealth of talent, and have a great mix of youth and experience as they look potential favorites to qualify for the playoffs. The team possesses star quality playerrs that can lead the team to glory come the final of PSL 8..
Peshawar Zalmi’s team is filled with a great combination of young and experienced players. Zalmi management has decided to add numerous young exciting cricketers including Mohammad Haris, Saim Ayub, Haseebullah, Danish Aziz, and Aamer Jamal. The team will be led by Babar Azam while Wahab Riaz, Rovman Powell and Sherfane Rutherford will be crucial with their vast PSL experience. The likes of Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jimmy Neesham, and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, will add further quality to the squad. Peshawar Zalmi’s strategy in PSL 2023 draft added a lot of freshness with quality to an otherwise aging and stale squad.
