The title “Man of the Match” or “Player of the Match Award” refers to a reward for outstanding performance in a game, usually in the form of money or an item. The PSL is no exception when it comes to match-winning performance. An all-around player, bowler, or hitter may typically stand out and be named player of the match.

In that situation, the Man of the Match or Player of the Match award is given to the player who had the most influential performance.
Each of these players will now be thoroughly examined.
