T20 cricket is a game of many ups and downs. Teams tend to score quickly to make as many runs as possible in their 20 overs. That is also when they lose quick wickets and record some of the lowest scores. It looks very rare when a complete team gets all out for below 100 runs.
But T20 cricket gives such sights regularly. The Pakistan Super League is one of the most prominent leagues in the world right now. And one thing is sure, that some of the excellent bowlers participate in this league. And here we will talk about the lowest totals ever registered in the history of the PSL so far.

5. Lahore Qalandars (89 all out) vs Multan Sultans in 2021

Batting first, Multan made 169/8 in their first inning. It was a challenging total, and Lahore needed a good start, but they couldn’t do it. They got bowled out for just 89 runs and lost the game by 80 runs.
4. Islamabad United (82 all out) vs Karachi Kings in 2017
Islamabad United registered the fourth-lowest total in the Pakistan Super League. It came in a low-scoring thriller against the Karachi Kings in Qualifier 2 in Sharjah in the 2017 season. Karachi batted first and only managed 126 runs. It didn’t look like the winning total at all, but the second inning proved everyone wrong. Chasing the small target Islamabad had a poor batting performance and got dismissed for just 82 runs in 15.2 overs. Thus, Karachi won the game by 44 runs.
3. Lahore Qalandars (78 all out) vs Peshawar Zalmi in 2019
Lahore Qalandars are back on the list. They have also registered the third-lowest total. It was made in the 7th game of the 2019 season when they played against Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai. Batting first, Lahore had a terrible performance, with none of their batters contributing significantly. As a result, they got bowled out for just 78 runs in 15.1 overs. In reply, Zalmi made 81/3 in 10.1 overs and won the game by seven wickets.
2. Quetta Gladiators (73 all out) vs Multan Sultans in 2021
The fourth-lowest score in the PSL’s history was made in the 2021 season when Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators faced each other in Abu Dhabi. Multan scored a decent total of 183/5, with Shan Masood scoring 73 off 42 balls. Chasing the target, Quetta had lost their three wickets for just 35 runs within the powerplay. Then, the whole team got bowled out for just 73 runs in 12.1 overs, registering the second-lowest PSL total. Multan won that game by 110 runs.
1. Lahore Qalandars (59 all out) vs Peshawar Zalmi in 2017
Out of the top five lowest PSL totals, Lahore Qalandars have three to their name. The lowest ever PSL score was made against Peshawar Zalmi way back in the 2017 season in Dubai. It was a low-scoring game, with Lahore getting all out for just 59 runs in 10.2 overs. Fakhar Zaman (33) was the top scorer, and only Mohammed Rizwan (11) was the other batter to reach double digits. Chasing the target of 60 runs, Peshawar also struggled and lost seven wickets. In the end, they made 60/7 in 17 overs and won by three wickets.
