The Pakistan Super League (PSL 2023) is well underway, with teams vying for the coveted title. The league stage is about to come to an end, with the final rivalry going on currently between arch-rivals Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars. After this match, the league will progress towards playoffs, including Qualifier 1, Eliminator 1, and Eliminator 2.
The top four teams of the league will participate in the playoffs. The teams that will play Qualifier 1 and Eliminator 1 were to be decided with table rankings. As of now, Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans are the top two ranked teams, and they will face off against each other in the first playoff, qualifier 1. The winner of this match will directly qualify for the final, while the loser will have another chance since they will proceed to Eliminator 2.
Eliminator 1 of the PSL 2023 will feature Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, who are currently ranked third and fourth, respectively. The stakes are high, as the losing team will be eliminated from the tournament, while the winner will advance to Eliminator 2, where they will face the loser of Qualifier 1. The ultimate goal for both teams is to make it to the final and compete against the winner of Qualifier 1.
Can Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars match result affect Who Will Play Eliminator 1 and Qualifier 1?
Notably, the outcome of the Karachi Kings versus Lahore Qalandars match will not affect the standings of the teams in Eliminator 1 and Qualifier 1. Lahore Qalandars are currently at the top of the points table with 7 wins, followed by Multan Sultans with 6 wins. Regardless of their result against Karachi, Lahore Qalandars will maintain their position with the most number of wins.
As a result, the rankings of the third and fourth-placed teams will remain unchanged after the last league stage match, and they will still compete in Eliminator 1. The match between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars will not affect the positions of the teams that have already qualified.
It is essential to note that Karachi Kings are placed at the bottom of the points table and are already eliminated from the tournament alongside Quetta Gladiators.
The playoffs are always an exciting time for the fans, and the teams will have to bring their A-game to make it to the finals. Lahore Qalandars and Multan Sultans have been playing exceptionally well throughout the tournament, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in Qualifier 1.
On the other hand, Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi will battle it out in Eliminator 1. The pressure will be on both teams to perform well and make it to Eliminator 2.
