Peshawar Zalmi is once again set to make its presence felt during the much-awaited PSL — Pakistan Super League.

With the eighth edition of PSL just around the corner, the Zalmis — under the leadership of Babar Azam — have already started training in Karachi.

The team’s back-to-back training sessions are a clear sign that the Zalmis intend to bring their A-game to the tournament.

Finishing positions in previous seasons

Peshawar Zalmi is the only PSL team to feature in all PSL playoffs. The yellow army won their maiden and only title in 2017.
