Pakistan Super League, the much roared about Twenty20 project by the PCB, kicked off in Dubai amid splendor, enthusiasm, and much anxiety. It is a great initiative taken by the PCB. PSL will substantially benefit the game in Pakistan. It will groom new players immensely and provide significant exposure to our boys by playing alongside the top-notch players from all around the world. Beyond everything, it will prepare our boys for upcoming international commitments and encompasses Twenty20 World Cup, Asia World Cup, series with England, and maybe, the much-anticipated series with India.
PSL can serve as the first step towards the revival of international cricket at home, as the PCB announced at the official opening ceremony of PSL, few matches of PSL, next year, might be held in Pakistan. PCB has left no stone upturned in making this League come alive. It’s really the time to stand up and support our boys. Whoever wins the trophy, Pakistan would be the victor in the end. However, I wish all the very best to all the teams and hope that PSL becomes one prominent element in the Cricket Calendar of the World.
