Aggregating career data of squad members helps form a broad picture of team strength in various areas.
Islamabad United have the highest average age of the five teams but in terms of actual T20 experience they have played fewer matches than three of the other four teams and have scored fewer runs than any of them. Lahore Qalanders are the least experienced team this season, ranking bottom in three of the four experience metrics. Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi boast the most T20 experience having played the most matches and scored the most runs and taken the third and first most wickets respectively. Quetta Gladiators have the second lowest average age but have good match experience.

By average, run rate and balls per dismissal Karachi Kings are, by some distance, the top ranked batting team in this PSL. The other four teams are very closely matched across all three metrics, although Lahore Qalanders emerge as second to Kings in average and run rate.

Last year’s champions Islamabad United rank first in all three bowling metrics and are the only team with an economy rate of under seven. Lahore Qalanders and Peshawar Zalmi are very similarly matched, as are Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators. All five teams boast strong bowling statistics.
|Team||Bowling Average||Economy Rate||Strike Rate|
The bowling statistics by type reveal all five teams to have stronger spin bowling than seam bowling, with all five economy rates lower for spin than seam and four of the five averages lower for spin than seam. Lahore Qalanders’ and Islamabad United’s spin bowling stand out as the most impressive bowling attacks in the league.
