Many consider the Indian Premier League (IPL) to be the best venue for cricketers to highlight their skills. Since its inception in 2008, the IPL has grown to be the most successful franchise-based cricket tournament in the world, and Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz agrees. Riaz was asked to compare the IPL and the Pakistan Super League in an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan on YouTube (PSL). The 35-year-old believes the IPL is more than any other cricket league in the world because of its universal exposure. “The IPL is the kind of tournament where all of the world’s best cricketers compete.” To begin with, you cannot equate the IPL to the PSL. The IPL is on a different level.
Riaz also believes that the PSL is the world’s second-best cricket league, after the IPL. To prove his case, the bowler said that the competition’s bowling standard is among the highest in the world, resulting in less high-scoring matches.
“The standard of bowling in the PSL is the best in the world, and you won’t find that in the IPL. As a result, high-scoring matches are rare in the PSL. In terms of cricket, I believe the only distinction is that in the PSL, every team has one of the strongest bowling attacks in the world “, he went on to say.
Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in India, the IPL 2021 season was postponed indefinitely halfway through the season. The nation is now dealing with the second outbreak of the pandemic and is one of the worst-affected areas on the planet.
Thanks to the pandemic in Pakistan, PSL 2021 has been postponed, but will start in June of this year.
The BCCI is yet to announce an IPL 2021 resumption deadline.
