PSL marks the future of Pakistan cricket

Updated on February 27, 2016

Pakistan super league had some shortcomings but it looks set to be the country’s future. It was an exciting sight to see Sir Viv Richards bouncing with joy at age of 67 with Quetta Gladiators, Wasim Akram and Dean Jones coming together for Islamabad, Ramiz Raja, Allan Wilkins Bazid Khan all dressed up in traditional Shalwar Kameez and KP tweets in the native language to empathize with the cricket fans sends a loud signal to the cricketing world that PSL has just arrived.

It is quite evident that PSL had some shortcomings but perfection has never been a requirement for success. It was cherishing a sight that PCB taking the initiative to promote franchise cricket in Pakistan. It was more than enough to see some exhilarating cricket being played in the tournament which to me was far better than various tournaments being played across the cricketing world in terms of quality and standard. PSL was packed with immense passion, emotions and the games of highest standards.

The inaugural addition of PSL gave us some moments to remember. Pace bowlers bowled with some exciting flare, showed aggression and took wickets. Batsmen with the likes of Umar Akmal, Ravi Bopara KP and Sharjeel offered flashes of genius. Catches dropped, unpredictable batting and exciting bowling spells which are a gift of Pakistan cricket to the rest of the world.

In terms of Pakistan cricket is concerned Pakistan Super League marked a rebirth and revival of domestic cricket in the country. I surely believe that Pakistan still has a lot of catching to do as just one tournament doesn’t fix the decade worth of damage. PSL is a start of recovery and the first step to bring international cricket back home.

One must not compare PSL to IPL or Big Bash league. We need to keep this fact in our minds that PSL emerged from a country which is deprived of hosting international cricket, a country which is facing the menace of terrorism. Cyst of corruption and lawlessness. We need to keep in mind that Pakistan’s cricket was collapsing until now. This league has ignited hope to the players that they can now showcase their skills and talent at a world stage.

Hats off and all the praise to the management and organizers of PSL as they hit the right cords. They realized their vision and luck favored them too. I do believe that next year will be even tough as expectations and standards are raised. Value of this league will only increase if it keeps flourishing despite of all odds. The first addition of PSL was memorable bash, a dance of delight in the desert, but excitement might be even better second time around.
