Who has the Highest Batting Average in PSL History

Despite the fact that PSL is a T20 league where the strike rate contributes more and is more popular with fans due to the faster pace of the game, but T20 batting average still means a lot since it doesn’t only average but also other criteria like “Not Out”. Therefore, a batter’s t20 average in competitions like the Pakistan Super League is more crucial to understanding how well they can play on a given day.

Therefore, the career average is more important than any other factor since it indicates the batter’s efficiency. What else can a batter hope for in a 20-over league like the PSL besides a high average, high runs scored, and dominating innings? An average shows how much a batter can score runs in an inning. Babar Azam has the highest batting Average 42.3 in 68 matches he played in his PSL career. Who are the other players who have scored the highest average in PSL?
