Most Man of the Match Awards in PSL

The term “Man of the Match” or “Player of the Match Award” refers to a reward awarded for exceptional performance in a match, typically in the form of money or an item. In terms of match-winning performance, the PSL is not an exception in this case. An all-around player, bowler, or batter could typically show a remarkable performance and be named the player of the match. Sometimes teams put on an impressive collective performance, making it difficult for the PSL Organisers to choose the actual winner. In that case, a player with the highest impactful performance is chosen for the Man of the match or the player of the match award. 

Which player has the highest man of the match award in PSL? The Answer is Kamran Akmal and Luke Ronchi, who have the most PSL match awards.
