Indian Premier League is one of the biggest sports tournaments of the world as it has already attained a place in the top ten tournaments of the world and there is no denying the fact that its brand value is also huge. The other cricketing tournament which is considered as one of the biggest is the Big Bash League of Australia but Pakistan Super League (PSL) is nowhere near to being called the best league of the world.
Pakistani cricketer Shadab Khan, the skipper of PSL team Islamabad United, feels that PSL is the best league as he said that he has played in many leagues but PSL is the best because each team has bowlers who can bowl above 140 km/hr which he hasn’t seen in other leagues.
Well, he is certainly correct in regard to the bowlers as some of the local bowlers are quite talented but calling PSL the best league is definitely not correct because it is far behind to IPL in terms of TRP, audience count, global broadcasting and the most important factor – revenue.
Twitterati didn’t take Shadab’s statement lightly and went on to troll him mercilessly. Here are some of the selected tweets:
Ipl khela nai isne kabhi… BBL me isne total 3match khele hain. Aur natwest me khelege hoge 2 4 8 match (not sure) . Mzansi khela nai isne kabhi. Bpl khela hoga 1 2 season. Bacha kya. So based on that he is saying psl is better. Lagta hai bpl aur psl compare kar dia isne bas

The fifth season of PSL will be starting soon and this will be the first time that all the matches will be played in Pakistan only; the venues that have been selected are – Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi and Multan. PSL started in 2016 and all the matches in the first two seasons were played in UAE due to security issues. However, in the last two seasons, the semi-finals and finals were played in Pakistan.
What do you think of Shadab Khan’s statement and how do you rate PSL in comparison to IPL?
