Quality of bowling in PSL is better than IPL: Wasim Akram
Wasim Akram interviewed many foreign cricketers and asked them to compare the quality of PSL and IPL. The ex-cricketers have always been spotted terming PSL bowling quality as top class.
“…But from whatever I have seen in the PSL over the last few years I have asked a lot of foreign players about the difference between IPL and PSL when it comes to bowling. They all have said that the quality of bowling in the PSL is much better. In all IPL teams, there is at least one bowler who can be attacked. According to foreign players, the quality of bowling is a lot better than IPL, according to foreign players.
Wasim Akram named Zalmi’s emerging player, Haider Ali, and Zeeshan Ashraf of Sultans as the doing well youngsters who can be promising for the future as well.
“If I have to name a few promising batsmen, youngsters who are doing well are Peshawar Zalmi’s Haider Ali and Multan Sultan’s Zeeshan Ashraf,” he told Basit Ali during the conversation on Youtube.
The veteran finds it unfair to compare both T20 leagues as PSL has just completed five years whereas, IPL is to step into its thirteenth season. Being a mature league, IPL makes more money although PSL ranks as the second biggest tournament after IPL.
“It’s not fair to compare PSL and IPL. PSL has just started, it’s just been 5 years since its inception. For the first time, it was held in Pakistan we came to know how big a tournament it is for Pakistan. PSL is the second biggest tournament in the World of T20 after IPL. IPL has matured. It’s completed 12 years and there is a lot more money involved in the IPL,” he added.
