    Mohammad Rizwan Contrasts the Indian Premier League with the Pakistan Super League.


    According to the most recent ICC rankings for T20I batsmen, Mohammad Rizwan is ranked second. The 30-year-old has been one of Pakistan’s key batsmen over the past few of years. The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is currently the toughest cricket league in the world, topping even the Indian Premier League, according to Rizwan, who has played in various franchise T20 competitions like the Big Bash League, Bangladesh Premier League, and Pakistan Super League.

    “We used to say there is IPL; now, if you ask players who go back after playing here, they say that Pakistan has the toughest league in the world because even our reserve players sit on the bench,” Mohammad Rizwan was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan. “Obviously, everyone knows that PSL has surprised the whole world. In the beginning, it was said that it won’t succeed and things won’t differ. As a player, we also realized that it has made a name for itself worldwide.” The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League is slated to take place in Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, and Lahore from February 9 to March 19.

    The earnings of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the sums received by each PSL franchise throughout the league were disclosed earlier in March by PCB chairman Ramiz Raja. The former captain of Pakistan claimed that throughout the season, the profit increased to 71%, which is the most in the competition’s history. He continued by saying that each franchise earned PKR 900 million (Rs 38 crore). “HBL PSL 7 profits jumped to 71 percent, the most in its history, with each franchise earning around PKR 900 million, again the most in HBL PSL’s history, and all before the first ball was even bowled,” Ramiz Raja said in an official statement.

    In addition, Raja praised the “overwhelming” support from spectators in Karachi and Lahore, the tournament’s first and second phases’ respective sites, saying he had never experienced such “lively and enthusiastic crowds” in his professional career. “There is no doubt that the HBL Pakistan Super League 7 has been a phenomenal success and this is largely due to the fact that we had amazing crowds, both in Karachi and Lahore. In my professional career, I have never seen such charged up, overwhelming, enthusiastic, lively, and supportive crowds, particularly in Lahore,” he added.
