‘Hum Keh Rahe Hai Ki IPL Hai Lekin…’ Mohammad Rizwan Blunt Statement After PSL8 Draft

The draft for the eighth edition of Pakistan Super League was announced yesterday (December 15) and some hard hitting players from all around the world made it into this T20 league. PSL is often compared to the world’s best T20 league which is IPL based in India, monitored by BCCI.

Yesterday some notable players were present for the draft ceremony and Pakistan wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan was one of them. Rizwan is the captain of multan sultans and he has taken his team to win the title in 2021 edition of the tournament.

Yesterday while having an interaction with the reporters, Rizwan made a blunt comparison over PSL and IPL. He said,”“Hamko pata hai ki PSL ne duniya ko hairaan kar diya hai. Shuru me baatein ho rahi thi ki PSL kaamyaab nahi hoga, but abhi hamein khud, as a player feel ho raha hai ki ye PSL ne kya dhoom macha di hai duniya me. Ham keh rahe hai ki IPL hai, but iss time duniya ke players se pucha jaye, jo yahan se khelke jaate hain, vo keh rahe hain ki duniya ki sabse tough league Pakistan ki hai. (PSL has stunned the entire world. There were talks earlier that PSL won’t be successful, but even us, as a player, have felt that PSL is a success. The IPL is there, but if you ask any player around the world who has played in the PSL, he would say that Pakistan’s league is the toughest in the world.).”

He further added,”Idhar se koi reserve player bhi hota hai, toh vo bhi internationally bench pe baitha hota hai. Pakistan ki backup agar mazbooti se mil rahi hai, usme PSL ka bohot ahem kirdaar hai. (The players who are reserves here, they are sitting on the bench at the international level as well. Pakistan are getting good backup players, and PSL should get credit for that).”

PSL will start in January next year with 6 teams fighting for the title. The tournament schedule is yet to be announced but the squad for all the teams have been fixed after the yesterday draft.
