Players’ bids, grand opening ceremonies and cheerleaders dancing after every fours and sixes on the field. The world saw such a cocktail of entertainment with cricket for the first time.
Meanwhile, in other countries, T20 league started on the lines of IPL, but no one could compete in IPL. Pakistan’s fast bowler himself Wahab Riaz Said that there is no competition of Pakistan Super League with IPL. Wahab admitted that the level of the Indian Premier League is different from other competitions in the world. However, he has praised the bowling in the PSL and described it as the best.
IPL has given many stars to Indian cricket. The best players in the world play in this league. Wahab Riaz described the bowling level of PSL as superior to every league in the world and also cited one reason for Pakistan Super League to be a low-scoring tournament. Pakistani players have been banned in the IPL due to tense political relations between the two countries.
He added, ‘The way the IPL tournaments are organized is completely different. IPL cannot be compared to anyone. This year IPL and PSL could not be fully organized. Both leagues were postponed due to deteriorating conditions from Corona. It goes on to say that the Sri Lanka Premier League is held in Sri Lanka, the Bangladesh Premier League in Bangladesh and the Caribbean Premier League in the West Indies.
