Another news regarding PSL, as expected, is Peshawar Zalmi to be led by Babar Azam in PSL 2023. Among the best batsmen in the world and the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Babar Azam has been appointed as the new captain of Peshawar Zalmi for the 8th edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023).
Earlier this month, Babar Azam was named the new leader of Peshawar Zalmi, one of the most expensive players of the PSL. He said in a statement that he was excited about the new role.
“Peshawar Zalmi is one of the best teams of PSL and has performed consistently,” he added.
As the chairman of Peshawar Zalmi Javed Afridi said, Babar Azam is now the best batsman in the world. He plays all three formats, which is a source of pride for Pakistan cricket.
“Peshawar Zalmi will perform brilliantly in the PSL 8 under his captaincy”, he said.
He said Babar’s world-class batting and captaincy experience would help Peshawar Zalmi.
During the same announcement, Peshawar Zalmi management expressed gratitude to Wahab Riaz. Wahab was the former captain and the most successful bowler in PSL history.
