Endothermy, an old concept, is no more, and the blood is now boiling. In the past, Peshawar had little to do with cricket, but things have changed, and this team has made a mark in the cricket world. They call Arbaz Niaz Stadium their home, and it was introduced in 2015.


Javed Afridi, the CEO of Haier Pakistan, is the owner of Peshawar Zalmi. Now, let’s talk about the players in the Peshawar Zalmi team as listed below.


Babar Azam is the captain of Peshawar Zalmi.

Babar Azam is a serious force as a batsman. If you aim for higher scores and a reliable batting lineup, he’s the player you’d want in your team. Babar is the top run-scorer in the PSL, boasting over 2000 runs and maintaining an average of more than 40.

Do these numbers truly reflect how good of a captain he is? Let’s delve into his leadership as the captain of the PSL franchise.

Babar Azam served as the captain of the Karachi Kings from 2020 to 2023. During his tenure, the team played 11 matches and won only one. As a captain in the PSL franchise, he faced significant challenges. But is it fair to put all the blame on him?

Babar Azam served as the captain of the Karachi Kings from 2020 to 2023. During his tenure, the team played 11 matches and managed to win only one. As a captain in the PSL franchise, he faced significant challenges. But is it fair to put all the blame on him?

Cricket is a team sport, and the Karachi Kings had a tough time in previous games. Is it accurate to lay all the blame on Babar?

On the international stage, Babar has captained Pakistan’s T20 side in 66 matches. Among these, the team secured victories in 40 games and faced defeat in 21. The remaining matches did not yield a result.

His record places him at number 5 on the all-time best T20 captains list in history. Remarkably, he has played the most matches as a skipper!

We can confidently predict that Babar will be a valuable asset for Peshawar Zalmi if the entire team plays together.


The head coach of the team is Mohammad Akram.


This part will provide comprehensive details about the players of Peshawar Zalmi.


Peshawar Zalmi has utilized 7 batsmen, and here are their names.

  • Babar Azam
  • Rovman Powell
  • Saim Ayub
  • Tom Kohler Cadmore
  • Asif Ali
  • Mohammad Haris
  • Haseebullah Khan

The batting lineup for this team is powerful. Just picture these domestic cricket stars playing together! The matches are sure to be entertaining. With Harris as an opener and Tom in the middle order, brace yourself for plenty of sixes throughout the innings.

This batting lineup is a blend of both domestic and international talent, with Babar Azam at the forefront. However, after the World Cup disappointment, seeing how he performs as a captain is intriguing. The question arises: will this impact his performance as a batsman too?

TKC created chaos for opposing bowlers in the previous season, and having him this year adds power to Peshawar’s batting lineup.

Haseeb and Powell are formidable batters on their own, but the real game-changer who can score quick runs for the Zalmis is Asif Ali. Asif showcased his run-scoring abilities for the United, earning high praise from the late Dean Jones for his dedication to the game. With Asif on their side, the Khpal team is sure to hit some massive sixes.


In the Peshawar Zalmi Squad, 9 bowlers have been utilized, and here are their names.

  • Noor Ahmad
  • Naveen-ul-Haq
  • Khurram Shahzad
  • Salman Irshad
  • Arif Yaqoob
  • Umair Afridi
  • Mohammad Zeeshan
  • Mehran Mumtaz
  • Lungi Ngidi

The bowling department boasts some variety. Naveen, the Afghanistan speedster, took charge of the bowling attack during challenging times. Irshad, on the other hand, is a bowler who can make an impact with the new ball, securing crucial wickets. Opponents should be alert when facing this combination.


Peshawar Zalmi has all-rounders who can be positioned as needed. Here are their names.

  1. Amir Jamal
  2. Daniel Mousley

While there may not be many all-rounders in the Zalmi camp, they compensate with a robust batting and bowling lineup. Nonetheless, these players are not to be underestimated.


Peshawar Zalmi has utilized 6 overseas players, and here are their names.

  1. Rovman Powell
  2. Noor Ahmad
  3. Tom Kohler Cadmore
  4. Naveen-ul-Haq
  5. Daniel Mousley
  6. Lungi Ngidi


Peshawar Zalmi delivered an impressive performance in the previous PSL sessions. They played 34 matches across three editions, securing victory in 17 and facing defeat in 14. With an overall percentage of 57.57%, they claimed the 3rd position in PSL. For the latest PSL updates, live streaming, point table, and day-to-day information visit our website.
