Here are All the Stats and Top Performers of PSL 2021

The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) came to an end with Multan Sultans winning their first-ever PSL title by defeating Peshawar Zalmi by 47 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

The tournament initially began in February at National Stadium Karachi but after an outbreak of Covid-19, it was postponed and then rescheduled to be held in Abu Dhabi in June. The two phases of the tournament brought forward some exciting cricket and scintillating performances from the players as they had to adjust to new playing conditions.

Several international superstars backed out of the tournament due to scheduling conflicts, giving an opportunity to the likes of Martin Guptill and Usman Khawaja to make their debuts in Pakistan’s premier T20 tournament.
