This season will again see six teams competing for the title. The six teams are Islamabad United, Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Multan Sultans, Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi. The 2023 edition, the eighth season of the PSL, is expected to provide plenty of entertainment to the fans.

The opening fixture will take place at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan, while the second game will be played between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi at the National Stadium in Karachi. The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore and the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi will also host matches in the second half of the league phase.
Lahore, meanwhile, will host each of the playoff matches.
