PCB decided to host an exhibition match on Feb 05 before PSL 2023 starts. Peshawar Zalmi will be playing against Quetta Gladiators in the exhibition match at Bugti stadium, Quetta. As most of the players were playing in foreign cricket leagues, so it created uncertainty related to the final squad players for the PSL 8 exhibition match. But PCB directed the official players drafted by Zalmi and Gladiators to come back to Pakistan by Feb 02.
