The ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023 edition has reached its middle phase and the tournament is getting more and more excited day by day. We have already one team who have qualified for the PSL 2023 Playoffs.
The 21st match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023 was played on the 5th of March in Rawalpindi’s Pindi Club Ground between the bottom placed Quetta Gladiators and the Islamabad United.

Mohammad Nawaz and Najibullah were the star with the bat for Quetta who scored 52 and 59 runs respectively. Then Pakistan’s wicketkeeper batsman Umran Akmal displayed his carnage as he scored 43 runs in 14 balls.
Chasing the target, Islamabad United lost the wicket of Rahmanullah Gurbaz quickly.
