PSL 2023 Playoffs: Qualified Teams, Schedule, How To Watch In India

PSL 2023 Playoffs

When the league stage action concludes on March 12, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2023 Playoffs are slated to take place at the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore the next week.

The top four teams advance to the playoffs and will play their respective matches based on where they place in the PSL 2023 points standings, as is customary. In the playoff rounds, four games will be played: Qualification, Eliminator 1, Eliminator 2, and the crucial final.

The top two teams will play in the Qualifier, giving them a second chance to advance to the final round even if they lose because they will face the winner of Eliminator 1 in Eliminator 2. The third-place team will compete against the fourth-place squad in Eliminator 1.

The PSL 2023 is a six-team competition, and to determine which teams advance to the playoff rounds, each team will play the other five teams twice in round-robin fashion.

In the league stage, each club will play a total of 10 matches, with the Net Run Rate (NRR) also being a key factor in determining the final four if teams are tied on points. Check complete details on PSL 2023 playoff, qualified teams, schedule, and others.
