The second session of the sixth season of the Pakistan Super League will feature South African star Faf du Plessis. Because of the COVID-19 scenario, the PSL 2021 session will be held in Abu Dhabi rather than Pakistan. Under the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed, Du Plessis would be representing the Quetta Gladiators and will be eager to prove his class.
According to sources, Du Plessis lauded Pakistan’s promising batsman Azam Khan and contrasted MS Dhoni’s and Ahmed’s captaincy approaches. While Dhoni is reticent and silent on the field, Ahmed is the polar opposite, often conversing with his teammates, according to the Protean.
During his chat, Du Plessis went into great detail on another important topic. He went over the differences between the PSL and the IPL in great detail. While India has a wide range of spinners, the South African believes Pakistan’s T20 competition boasts top-notch pacers. In PSL, the standard is quite high. The fast-bowlers were the aspect of the competition that most struck me. I was astonished to see the number of bowlers that could bowl at 140 [kph] or more, coming from a nation like South Africa where you grow up facing a lot of pace. I believe India has a large number of spin bowlers. The quantity of speed, in my opinion, is the real diamond of the PSL,” remarked Du Plessis in an interview with Cricket Australia.
Prior to this, Du Plessis was a member of the CSK squad during the IPL 2021 season’s interruption. His red-hot form, in fact, spurred the yellow army to continually perform. However, he stated that the suspension of IPL 2021 was regrettable owing to the spread of COVID-19 throughout camps.
The PSL 2021 leg in Abu Dhabi experienced a number of challenges acquiring authorization from the relevant authorities. Everything has been solved, and the league will be ready to play on June 9 with the final on June 24.
